Thank you

As we bring another year and our first decade for the century to a close in a few days, I have been reflecting on my first seven months of blogging. I had not known a thing about blogging, let alone visited any blogs. Well, all this has changed now.

With 17 post published and another 33 at Four Seasons in a Life, I am truly thankful for those who have stop by, had a look at my photographs and read the words to my thoughts. I am especially grateful to my regular readers who have chosen to follow, including the ones who elected to follow anonymously; I cherish your company just as much.

As we are about to enter into 2010, I look forward to our continued friendships, sharing each other’s art, ideas, and personal stories in the coming weeks and months. Maybe even one day we may have the opportunity to talk on the phone or possible meet in person.

I do not know what will await us in the coming year; I do know that visiting your blogs is like comfort food we long for on a cold evening or when we have a need to feed that sweet tooth in the afternoon. Your blogs have enriched my life on many levels, from knowledge to inspiration, to guidance, as well as offered a break from the days routine with a little much needed humour.

I thank you for your presence in blogesphere
and for sharing your world
with me and all of us.

Nearing year's end I like to take the time to contemplate what has been good in my life and to truly appreciate each and every experience. The connections I've made have enriched my life in so many ways above the artistic. I thank you for being a part of this enriching experience by writing such eloquent and heart felt posts, by leaving comments on my blog, and participating in the ongoing conversations in blogs I follow. I look forward to what the new year brings.

Have a joyous holiday season.
