I Made It To 100 – For The Sake Of Old Times

I started writing this blog at the end of July.

No, that’s not me. I don’t smoke.

I was looking for a way to get back to it; to find my voice.  Motivated by many things, I took a leap into the internet blogging world with absolutely no idea what I was doing.

Honestly, I still don’t.

I watched what others did and used them as silent mentors. Echoes In The Wind and Brand Name Ketchup showed me the ropes, and I thank both of these chaps and their blogging. They may not have known it, but their writing and ease of style had a huge impact on me.

So today I hit my goal. I wanted to try to post at least 100 times on this blog before the end of the year. I cheated a bit. Some of my early posts were poetry I had already written, but I wanted it out there. Most of the work is new.

I have changed as a writer. Years ago I was more in my head. I was more lyrical. I’m more passionate now. I’m more emotional. I’m not sure that’s better, the jury’s out at this time.

So, to all of you who are following me I send you my eternal thanks. I (and I mean this) am humbled that you would take time out of your day to read something I would write.

Please have a wonderful and safe New Year.  Love the ones you love, and take care of yourselves, your health, and your hearts. I won’t be able to toast in the year with you, but we can share a moment of song.

Here is Auld Lang Syne the way Robert Burns intended it. Loosely and poorly translated  it means For the Sake of Old Times. This version is sung by the beautiful Madelaine Cave A link from The Huffington Post will give you lyrics, both English and Scottish, but if you open your heart you know what is being said.
