Anniversary Issue (Nice and Short)


In my last post, I made mention that within the contact field of my Blackberry, there was the “anniversary” function, and I wondered who would possibly need this outside of their own lives. Well, sonofabitch, if my blog isn’t about one year old! Maybe this year it will learn to walk! Oddly, when I was looking through my first entries (and please, please do not do this to yourself –they are aimless and could easily lead you to believe that I was one or two keystrokes away from writing a “manifesto” of some sort) I realized I had this weird gap. There were some in June, and then nothing until September. I wish I could at least fill in this gap, but I can’t remember what the hell was going on that this space exists. It’s kind of like the Darien Gap in Panama, thus preventing a true land route between the Americas.


I fully realize my posts can come off as; arrogant, self-righteous, condescending, stupid, poorly written, out of touch and foolish. But you know what? I fucking like it. But here is the other, most important part; I have heard some pretty complimentary things over the year. And that feels really great. Writing this nonsense only for me wouldn’t be much fun, and I really hesitated plopping my link on Facebook. But over the past year, this little blog has generated several thousand hits.

So, whether you have come by once or read every post, I really want to thank each and every one of you. It really means a lot to me…actually, probably more than you will ever know. I have been blessed.

So, until you find something better to read (like the Dead Sea Scrolls) I will be looking forward to another year! THANKS!

(The photo is where the action happens.  Right in the kitchen, where there are plenty of distractions!  The beer is mandatory.  Off to the side are all of this year's lacrosse stat sheets...as team statistician, my job was to compile the stats from all the games, upload them to a spreadsheet and send them to the coaches so they could promptly ignire them.  My brother has a standing order that if something happens to me he is to run my hard drive through a chipper and scatter the bits in the Darien Gap.)

I think you should write full-time, but then I've told you that before ... the nicest (?) part about this sort of gift (i.e., your writing) – is, it, like other talents like painting, music & loads of other passions turned avocations or vice versa; can be honed intentionally or quite accidentally- just by living one’s life & having taken the often painstaking energies required to wrestle w/ one’s subconscious thoughts - tucked away to be later turned over, pondered & stored again - for some other time or use - throughout one’s mid years …. But then, they all emerge, the new, the mature, the still ripening & for someone like yourself, you & others, see how this last year has sprung from you (& the years prior not on this blog) & just perhaps still consider that this gift that you have might, could, I think most definitely will become a 2nd or (even) 3rd career for you, & for those like myself, it will be worth the wait … for had you debuted your talents as your 1st voyage, – I think I & others would be robbed of all it had, clearly has the capacity to become... PS U know who I am-2, & I know who Ur other anon is 2, 'k? :) Yep – U R terrific …

I have to say I really enjoy your stuff. I like to save up your blogs and spend an evening or morning with a cup of joe. There is always one or two that sticks with me gets me thinking or makes me smile. You are a talented writer. Thanks... and keep them coming.
