Not to detract from one of the most auspicious inaugural events in our country’s history (as if I could) but January 20th is the one year anniversary of the birth of this blog, Oak in the Seed. Writing this blog has been a source of pride and healing, wonder and frustration, as well as an amazing journey across the paths of individuals across the universe. Astonishing, really. I have much to be grateful for, all because of blogs and the people who create them:
Thanks to the amazing photographs I have seen from many blogger photographers like Behind the Bins and The Celery Farm and Beyond, I am learning more about this elusive skill. I thank my lucky stars that Blogger tossed up Teachings of the Horse as a possible blog that might interest me, because after settling into Victoria’s stunning writing, I went on to meet Arlene from Grey Horse Matters. These two women are like personal friends, almost as if we have already shared a cup of coffee in their kitchens. Between them and several others, I got a leg-up to where I belong; in a saddle on the back of a horse. I’ve also been swept off my feet of clay with breathtaking sunsets with every Friday’s Skywatch. The poignant and personal stories of my favorite blogs have opened my mind and my heart.
So on my first Blogger Birthday, I want to thank you all for your virtual hand in friendship and warm camaraderie. You have made a difference in my life. I am a better woman for having blogged with you!
I look forward to Year Two and….
- A return to the barn when the weather breaks to pick up my weekly riding lessons. Have yet to buy the hardhat.
- Practice photography with the Canon digital camera purchased last summer. Maybe some day an upgrade to an SLR…?
- Continue having fun blogging, introducing others to the world of blogging, and reading, laughing, weeping while sharing your lives through your blogs.
