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.

chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire.”

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.

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.)

when reading this article about literacy
i was saddened by it
yet i was struck by an typo
not meant to be ironic
that perhaps unknowingly proved the point.
“literacy is a bridge from misery to hope.”

i hear the grandies’ voices
one reads words out loud
while the other
writes ‘created words’
“maybe i should take a writing class.”
handwriting is so cool
because it is like
the written equivalent of someone’s voice.
