Day 365 – End of year one…

I never would have thought a year ago on May the 8th that this blog would have made it this far. For most of my adult life I tried to develop the journal habit and failed. So when I started this collection of almost daily musings, I had no real expectation that it would last any longer than the many journals I have collecting dust on bookshelves and in drawers around this old house of ours.

When I started this blog I blamed it on Fred First whom I hadn’t at that time “met”, though I had already acquired a copy of his book. In the past year we have become friends (at least I like to think so) and we still haven’t “met”. I hope to get the opportunity this summer to wander down Goose Creek and photograph the most photographed barn in Floyd County.

I have “met” others on this journey and hope they consider me a friend the same as I consider them.

Life has a way of keeping you on your toes, and if you don’t pay attention, it’ll pop you on the back of the head to get you to open your eyes…And, that’s where I am at today.

So thank you to all of you who wander by…Special thanks to those of you who keep coming back…

  1. Congrats, buddy, and I hope we’ve only just begun to blog. It has been an invaluable portal to community for me, and I think the best is yet to come–though I can’t see the way just now in sorting out the signal to noise of the blogosphere.

    And hey–this might be the summer we add another blogger to our respective life lists! Hope your NC trip finds better wx than our SD trip has!

  2. Thanks Fred…And Thanks for the initial inspiration to jump out and try my hand. Sorry about your weather “challenges”, I know when you are far from home on a limited time budget, it’s tough not to get even a chance to try your hand at picturing the place…Even if only for the memories.

  3. Thanks Carolyn, it’s almost funny that when you look up my profile though, you’ll see I’ve experimented with blogger since April of 2001…If I’d only stayed with it…
