My, how the time flies by.
While sipping away on a coffee or two this morning, it’s hard to believe it has been three years. Three years, since I parked myself in a lawn chair in our backyard one morning and got this crazy idea to start a blog.
Nothing more, than just sitting there reading the outdoors blog of another person and thought, “I could that.”
For me, the idea of blogging and writing was no more extensive or detailed than that.
No long dwelling and burning desire deep inside my soul that was waiting for the perfect moment; the perfect circumstances to spew forth and unleash my innermost thoughts upon an unsuspecting world.
What was I possibly thinking?
This came as a comment or note from WordPress the other day.
But, how things have evolved and changes throughout those three years.
From starting out with simple trip reports of our adventures. Then putting down my own take and views on life and living, and finally jumping into the deep end of the pool – writing poetry.
Having articles and poems published. To be recognized and nominated for pieces I composed on web-based publishing platforms.
Through all of this, I’ve had the opportunity to connect with so many other bloggers and writers from across the world.
That part alone has made the journey, all worthwhile.
Thanks to everyone who has read a post and left a comment or two over those three years.
Thanks to the bloggers, writers and poets who have inspired me to think, reflect and perhaps slightly alter the way I see things as they unfold in front of me.
Thanks to everyone; you’ve all played a role.
The biggest thank you of all is to Lynn!
She has had to endure the countless ideas I babble on about when we’re in the car, either going on or coming back from one of our many outdoor adventures. The many, many re-writes she goes over and who serves as “chief editor” from time to time.
The simple truth is, the inspiration for many, if not most of my writing comes from her art and her passion she captures and shares for all to experience through her photography.
