This Is Number 365
Updated: Apr 12, 2021
A year ago today was my very first blog post on this website. It's hard to believe that I have not missed a single day. Initially these started as FaceBook posts the month before we all found ourselves locked down in our homes. I thought all of us needed some happy thoughts and pictures every day. I know I did. Interestingly, I have never had a single day of writer's block. Often I would just start with an image that I liked and, as I started to write, the thoughts and words would come to me. I can remember discovering and sharing lots of information about various kinds of flowers and places. Sometimes I described how I had processed that day's image, especially with iColorama. I shared old pictures of myself and various family members that had sparked some particular memories. Other times my thoughts became personal opinions about what was happening in the world. Always I have hoped that my shares and musings added something positive to my reader's daily lives. During a year when I was often spending endless days by myself with no real human contact, writing these blogs have provided me the chance to not feel so isolated, that I wasn't living on a desert island wondering if I were ever going to be rescued. Writing and sharing them have been a blessing to me in so many ways. Thank each of you, readers, who often commented on my shares. You have been the voices that I needed in my otherwise somewhat empty pandemic world. I plan to keep writing as long as I know that I have readers. Things are beginning to open up, and maybe it will not be too much longer before each of us can resume what we had previously considered "normal living," and we might begin to lose touch. I hope not. By the way, if you are interested in looking back over the past year of blog posts, they are all there. You just have to keep scrolling down.
