3 Years Almost

1,345 UPDATES …..

A couple of days ago I was looking for a post from my Peru travels back in 2009.  While searching and scrolling through Verse In Progress I revisited  several posts from years past. 

I have a few "all time" favorites; certainly I know which posts have prompted the most responses and reactions over the years.  

In August, Verse in Progress, will be three years old. I set up this blog in 2012, combining 2 blogs that I'd started, one went as far back as 2005. The other blog was set up with I first traveled to Ghana in 2011. 

Interesting that when I wrote a few weeks back about cutting my finger at Ana's house while trying to remove avocado pit, I got 8 inquiries about the condition of my finger.  And the sharpness of the knives. 

And all those inquiring had suggestions on how to best remove the avocado pit, information on special gadgets available to help with removing pits and questions about what I was using the avocado for that particular day. And just recently when I wrote about the Mexican Street Corn, I heard from 4 or 5 people, all about corn ! 

There is a small group of readers who I get updates from 4 or 5 times a week. 

You send emails or texts with reactions to updates, questions about particular topics, suggestions and recommendations.  

And always ENCOURAGEMENT for all things writing. When you read this update, you will know who you are ! 

To each one of you I say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.  

I appreciate your input and feedback and encouragement.  

I love the consideration of ideas, the celebration and sharing of memories, the invitation of the blank page or blank screen.  

I love the possibility of connection via stories, ideas, photographs and poetry. 

I find comfort and hospitality in the written word.

I appreciate everyday that you join me. 

Know that you are always, always welcomed ! !
