I almost forgot! Today is the sixth anniversary of this blog! Thinking back to when I began, I would not have believed this would become such an important part of my life, and how many wonderful connections and friendships would grow from it. Last year I felt excited and blessed to personally meet several blog friends in the UK and here at home in the Vancouver region. Perhaps this year I'll meet a few more of you - welcome!
Though I don't write quite as much as in those early days, I seem to be posting more photographs as that has grown into a serious hobby in addition to being part of my art practice. I miss some of my favourite bloggers who have quit or have been leaving for Facebook, Twitter and other media. Meanwhile I continue to resist joining them, fearing spreading myself too thin. Thank you, those of you who are still here and still reading and commenting with such warmth.
Here are a few photos from our Sunday afternoon walk not far from home. How I love where we live, rain or shine!
