Thank You. November 18, 2011Posted by littlebangtheory in Love and Death, Politics and Society.
This, my friends, is my 1500th post.
That’s 1500 times I’ve impinged on your reality with my ideas and obsessions, many of which were somewhat disjointed from their predecessors.
It might be relevant that my favorite short story is Kafka’s “The Metamorphosis,” seeing as that’s about what happened here at Little Bang Theory.
Thanks to all of you who have humored me by sticking around through the changes, forgiving me my abject failures and supporting me when things clicked. I’m talking about BlueGal, who first encouraged/helped me to begin blogging and still inspires me with her powerful perceptions of Our Current Dilemma (her podcasts with Driftglass are an essential part of my weekly education.) I’m talking about Bob Rutledge, my Siamese Cousin Separated at Birth (by several years and close to a thousand miles) who was my first commenter back in 2007, finishing my thoughts and appreciating my humble efforts as I shifted from politics into photography, and to all of you, Susan, Lisa, SO many others who have kept me going.
Look for me to broaden my palette to include All Of The Above, to get back into climbing (though not as a participant; my over-zealous pursuit of this younger-persons’ sport well into my dotage destroyed my rotator cuffs, rendering me an observer,) social issues which demand that ALL OF US participate, and other fields of endeavor which I can’t presently imagine.
That is to say, I have no idea where this blogging stuff will take me. I only know that I’m wed to the idea of sharing my thoughts and observations and joys and frustrations and little daily miracles with those of you who have stuck with me thus far, and perhaps even roping a few unsuspecting passers-by into my small but growing world of observations and musings.
Again, a hearty “Thanks” to you, the people who are the fuel for my fire. I wouldn’t be here without you.
