Numbers....As of today I have had 3500 posts, 150,115 hits (10,000 before this counter), 227 followers and on February 22 will not have missed a day of posting since 2008.  That makes me tired...and I have taken over 300,000 digital photos in the time...all stored in Picasa Web Albums. Out of control.

During that time, I have had the pleasure of meeting people from all over the world....People like Annette and Bret (Aspen Meadows), Terry (Moondance), Esther (Niger), Susie (of Arabia), The Coyote (Philly), Gayle (Alaska),  Ronnelle (France), Mike and Ann (England), Nea (Sweden), Sara and St. Tim (Punkin's Patch), Cloudia (Hawaii), Kim (Golden Pines), Kate (Illinois),  Rebecca-San (New York), Sue (Dream Valley Ranch), Sandra (Slovenia), Ron and Jim (Sophie's View), Grey Horse, Victoria, Michaele, Frank, Patrice, Ingrid, Cheri, Nancy, Carol, Cyndi, Teresa, Michelle, Leontien, Benny and Lily.... and many many more.  How else would I have connected with two great authors...Sharon Creech and Jon Katz. What an honor, to have been allowed into your worlds.

This universe is bursting with some very sweet and caring people.  Thank you for sharing it with me.
It's amazing....the way we get connected.
