...to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free....

07 November, 2011


Today this blog observed a milestone.
It tallied 10,000 visits.   That figure flat out awes me.
...more than words can say.

It has been nine months.
The only more amazing thing I have done in that length of time
is harbor each of my two babies until they were ready
to come into the world on their own.

I owe this blogging gift of discovery and joy
to each and every one of you who has visited, even once--
and to my faithful readers and commenters,
and your amazing support and encouragement.

I've had such a good time getting to know you.
I feel that many of you are friends now.
Sometimes I quote you to my local friends--
share your stories, talk about your photos.
I admire your work, consider you my mentors,

...and, gosh, I'm just plain proud to know you!

Thank you for stopping by!
