beaver pond icetoday is sunday, november 14, 2010. i posted my first blog piece sunday, november 15, 2009. one year (almost). in that counting much has happened in my life. today, i want to say thank you to all of you who visit, to those of you who have had the time to leave a comment, to those of you who take the time to think about what i'm writing about. to make things. to challenge, to laugh, to experiment, to understand what it means to love this mother earth we all share. i am not much of a writer, but i am someone who ponders things. and this is what i'm pondering today. a year. a reckoning. movement through a life, mine, and yours.
i want to give someone out there a little shifu square to say thank you. i know people do this sort of thing all the time. i'm not so good at organizing contests or restrictions--but if you drop me a line in the comments, i'll write them down and then have wendy the border collie help me pick a name. tell me if you want a dyed one, or a plain one. i'll try to get to it by tomorrow evening. my hobbit sort of celebration. and a thank you.
like these snow geese, i may still have a thing or two to say.have i said how much i love november? it's because, among other things, it's my birth month.
