what began as post #1 in may of 2012
has led to post #2001 today.
thank you to all who
view, read, comment, chat, post, and share.
i appreciate each and every one of you
even in those far away countries
where i may have only 1 loyal reader
you have all offered me
much food for thought
and most of all
wonderful human connections.
here’s to the next 2001.

all of us respond to stories more than numbers.”

September 24th: National Punctuation Day
* “A celebration of the lowly comma, correctly used quotation marks,
and other proper uses of periods, semicolons, and the ever-mysterious ellipsis.”
National Punctuation Day gives you the opportunity
to dress up your sentences with all kinds of context and accentuation!
Or, take the day to remind yourself what a semicolon actually does.
‘i’m tired of wasting letters when punctuation will do, period.’
*(i may not be qualified to celebrate this holiday,
as i endlessly abuse this system of grammatical organization.)

from one acorn of one word
into a forest of 1000 posts of all colors.
i am humbled
for all of you
who have taken
offer your kind thoughts to me.
it has meant all the difference.

Roald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer, poet, screenwriter, and fighter pilot.Born in Wales to Norwegian parents, Dahl served in the Royal Air Force during World War II, in which he became a flying ace and intelligence officer, rising to the rank of acting wing commander. He rose to prominence in the 1940s with works for both children and adults and became one of the world’s best-selling authors. He has been referred to as “one of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century”. Among his awards for contribution to literature, he received the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement in 1983, and Children’s Author of the Year from the British Book Awards in 1990. In 2008 The Times placed Dahl 16th on its list of “The 50 greatest British writers since 1945.”
