Heartbeat Post

Did I mention that I’m busy? Gotz lots on my mind, I do. When I want to unwind, I come here. Doing something, even as banal as publishing a quick post, has a way of recentering me. Not always, but certainly whenever I pick a photo and share it . . . 

It gives me a brief mooring; a quick escape from the roiling waves of the turbulence that is life.

OK, OK . . . too poetic and plus most people don’t know roiling. 


I want to share a milestone . . . 

I hadn’t looked at my stats for a good long while and lucky thing that I glanced at them or I would have missed the important 2,297 posts milestone . . . not to mention the 1,483 followers milestone . . . which won’t pass this way again for many moons.

. . . lots of businesses and people who sell stuff recently joined my ranks of supposed followers. I’d be willing to bet they have read not a one of my words.

Anyway, I wanted to mention March 19th was my anniversary — blog anniversary, not some other anniversary — and I forgot to mark it. That just goes to show how significant it is. 

That number does amaze me a bit . . . 24,908 comments. Sure, sure, 50% are my own comments and 49% are from the same three people and 1% are from readers who got lost and were asking for directions. Still, that’s a lot of comments. 

Of course, I’m not as prolific as I once was. Like, for instance, 2014 (HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE). 

I also no longer do amazingly long posts with nearly 100 photos . . . such as THIS post. 

I’m lucky if I post one photo . . . 

. . . and then add a variation of the same photo.

Anyway, I just wanted to mention I’ve been Dispersering nine years now . . . and the world is no better for it. 

. . . sad, that . . . 

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
