morning light…

“Oh! that my soul had winged its flight,
When first I saw the morning light,
To worlds of liberty!”

blog stats…

“All the statistics in the world can’t measure the warmth of a smile.” Chris Hart

Stats-Blog-SwittersB & Exploring

Yes, a small part (usually) of me charts stats on a larger scale, like above. I gauge the pleasing/success factor of a post by the incoming likes. When, sometime this Summer, I creep past 4,000,000 views, I will be satisfied, but it will be transitory as was 1 mil or 3 mil. What lingers, everyday, is the wisdom, joy, love, kinship and passion you all share. That’s how it is meant to be. That is why you share your efforts, to have an impact to other’s minds, hearts, emotions. Oh, the 17K post was regard the Montauk Sea Monster episode. I wrote it as a fun piece and for a day it was one of the few posts re the creature that washed up on the coast.

5000 Posts!!!

5000 Posts….I have been posting along since 2008. But why? It does challenge one to be honest. Self satisfaction/ego…yes. I am here and a few souls of great compassion care enough to reaffirm I matter, if even in a moment…a photo. Self fulfillment: yes. I share me, my experiences, my heart, my understanding, my emotions…being ever mindful that in any given moment others are surviving, struggling, holding onto life, finding themselves, clawing back to the edge…..what an absolutely life affirming journey this is. Maybe we take it for granted with a cursory ‘I am a sensitive soul…yes I am’….but we all know that a real, to your knees moment awaits us all or has had us there before. We understand fragility, harshness, darkness. Thank you for letting me offer this little blurb about me…I am cognizant this weekend is truly about others that gave and perished. I squeezed this in on an ebb of compassion…thank you!

The flow of ideas…….

Pointing the Way toward Excellence…..

little bear-smiling bear-wood carving-photography-East L.-Oregon-SwittersBI am sincerely pleased to acknowledge a nomination from Aquiliana at the enormously popular La Audacia de Aquiles for the Excellence Blog Award. Audacia de Aquiles is a most fascinating journey into Greek Mythology, history and the underpinnings to Western Civilization. Always fascinating to visit and learn. Thank you so very much Aquiliana!!! Gosh, I hope I got those vowels right.

As is consistent with the awards, I am to pass on this award to ten or so worthy creators and point the way to their site. There are so many wonderful bloggers out there and each award provides me the gift to point toward those amazing minds. With this award, you are kindly spared knowing the minutiae about SwittersB, so let me immediately point the way to my selections for the Excellence in Blogging Award.

The Shed: trapped

Brush away the webs

that collect the old worries

and keep us trapped
