that moment when the apple crisp you made
is finally ready to eat
and you learn how to write a new word
because you need to tell people something.
“words are but pictures of our thoughts.”
for those of you who’ve followed, read, or commented on my posts over the years
I’ve finally put my finger on my ‘writing style’
and no surprise to anyone who knows me outside of the blogging world
it goes along with the creative outlets I’ve always enjoyed
making cards, books, and art
using pieces of things I’ve found, read, and collected in the world
it’s simply a matter of combining
images, thoughts, prose, quotes, poetry, music, and ideas
that generally don’t begin together
but once gathered
looked at in new ways
rearranged mixed and shuffled
like a puzzle with no absolute solution
suddenly seeming to belong together
to bring new meaning
when combined into a whole
my blog is the same
but the difference is
rather than being made of anything concrete
it’s a mix of electronic media
it can vanish into the ethernet at any time.
like all of life
it’s about making connections.
and having lived a while
I suppose I am a bit of a collage myself.
“every art I do is a collage.”
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.
