My 100th Post!!!

 For the life of me, I cannot believe that this is my 100th post!

When I launched my website in January of 2011, my webmistress added a blog page and told me that I might consider adding a post now and then.  I had not intended to do this, but, even as a somewhat reluctant writer,  I figured that I’d go ahead and share some art news occasionally.

Well!  At first it seemed like such a daunting task, this writing of supposedly interesting posts. But I typically don’t work on art much in the winter (my studio is not technically heated) so working at my computer in a warm room worked out just dandy.   I really  started getting into it.  I regularly participated in Haiku My Heart on Fridays, Share the Joy Thursdays, and Postcards from Paradise on Sundays.  I sometimes added an early-week post just because.

I stared getting comments, and upon writing back, discovered countless enchanting sites where art and music and writing were flowing freely.  I’ve made some glorious connections and now look forward to reading my favorite blogs regularly.

It’s been exhilarating,  challenging, eye opening, time consuming…and incredibly rewarding, thanks to those of you who have taken time to make comments along the way.  And the act of writing and “putting it out there” has also been cathartic,  like journaling, only in public.

Who knew - other than my very patient husband – that I even had that much to say?

I can only wonder what 2012 will bring.
