A frosty morning in Shoreline, Washington, our February moon waning away.
Five hundred posts! How can that be? I guess it is sort of like hiking up McGee Pass, one step at a time and eventually, there you are! I think it interesting how I started this blog as a byproduct of walking for my health in Fort Bragg, California. Now, several years later, I am in Shoreline, Washington as a caregiver for my mother-in-law and walking is still the anchor of my daily routine providing me a "mental health time out" each morning before the various demands full time care giving requires. I will admit I'm currently having a bit of a problem coming up with things to photograph but my walking just gets better and better. The hills in this area provide a much more strenuous workout than Maple Street in Fort Bragg ever did!!
So. 500 posts!
I check Google analytics now and then to see how many readers I have, a pointless exercise actually because if the number is low I think, why am I doing this and if the numbers are high I get nervous with so many watching!!
Another weird thing I've noticed. Blogs are like rivers, they just go by. Who ever takes the time to go back to the source, read one from the beginning, not to mention how hard it is to do.
As for people just discovering this blog, they step aboard like onto a raft and float along with no idea what went before; what "this river" has encountered. But hey! I do the same with the blogs I discover. Funny business, blogs.
According to my friend Charlie Acker the best advice is to, "Just post and let it go".
