seven

years ago today 

I published my first blog post

thank you to all

who have made the time

to stop by for a visit

and sit for a moment.

flew across the world

to visit the beautiful country of ireland

and

on my journey

i went to

kinsale, county cork

where i met

one of my fellow bloggers

a wonderful woman 

tric

of

https://mythoughtsonapage.com

who writes

with honesty

and

a wicked irish sense of humor

about 

life’s ups and downs

and 

how to get through it all

and

it was quickly clear

from the moment we met

that

we are long-lost irish sisters.

thank you in advance

to all those who

i may cross paths with.

you could find yourself

smack in the middle

of my blog

one day

or seven.

family, friends,

random strangers, animals

and

those who cannot be categorized.

i am

endlessly fascinated by your stories

and

never judge you for them

but

instead

always learn something

from you

because of them.

library of congress

had a nice offer

from

an

‘adult novelty catalog company’

to advertise

on my blog

and i smiled

and thanked them

when

i

turned them down

and

thought about

what

my posts

are

really

all about

nature, animals, philosophy,  humor, zen, children, travel, art. life, family, love, compassion, adventure

not so much about dancing girls

and their costumes

and their toys

and their boys

not to say

they

can’t be

about

art or love or zen or adventure

too

for they are all

a part of life

and we all

 share the same planet

and

i don’t judge

and

i like to dance

and

wear costumes

and

all the rest

but i figured

chances are

 the company

has never really read my blog

and has no idea

who my audience

really

is

dobrador.com

your audience gives you everything you need. they tell you.

there is no director who can direct you like an audience.
