I started this weblog on January 31, in an effort to force myself to write every day. It was begun with a certain amount of trepidation: Did I really want to jump into such a big pool? Could I remember how to swim? With so much talent out there, would anyone even notice? Luckily I dismissed those concerns.
I've been welcomed into a community of wonderful and talented writers at Sunday Scribblings; of provocative poets at Poetry Thursday; into a multi-cultural group of interesting and creative people scattered all over the world!
I've been inspired by your words; your stories; your photographs; your art; your bravery. I've been humbled by your kindnesses and enriched by your friendship and encouragement. I've been awestruck and touched by the beautiful heartfelt messages I've received and by Abhay's poem, inspired by my post Scent of Time.
This is my 151st post and except for about three weeks of traveling, I've posted at least one; more often two or more pieces a day. Writing these pieces; reading your stories; exchanging ideas and sharing thoughts keeps me in the creative frame of mind to finish my book, too long in progress. Your support and encouragement means more than you might imagine. Keep reading! Thank you! Merci beaucoup! Gracias! Grazie!
