A Year Ago Today

Happy Birthday to you, Outnumber the Sand.

I started this blog a year ago. I'm happy that I did because...

1) I have an outlet for various ideas and thoughts that I used to never fully formulate and this forces me to completely think them out and put a period at the end.

2) I'm reminded of how much I love writing, and I am glad to have an opportunity to do it, since I hadn't been writing anything really for years.

3) Writing has got me reading more, mostly other blogs, both personal & topical, which I have realized count as quality reading material.

4) It helped me process through a couple of difficult months, having something else to focus on and indirectly express myself through.

5) I am in touch with more friends on a deeper level. Can't ask for much more than that.

So, I'm glad I'm here. Looking forward to whatever the future brings, on these pages and off of them.

Happy birthday to you both (you and the blog, that is). Or, as my 2 year old nephew would say, "Happy TO YOU," which seems to somehow simultaneously miss the point and get it exactly right.
