Looking Through Your Windows: A Year’s Past Postaday2011
For the past year, you have been kind, and more than generous, to allow me to look through your windows to take a peek into your lives, your family, your friends, and your thoughts. Occasionally I have responded to your writing or commented on your artwork and other times I just look and walk by–for no other reason but for lack of time.
Through your blogs, I’ve traveled to and learned the culture of India, Great Britain, Louisiana and Massachusetts; I’ve been across the pond more times than I can count (though still not satiated); I’ve learned to enjoy and spend my time wisely during my journey here on earth; I’ve also been tempted to try some of your recipes (that’s if I were even remotely interested in cooking); I’ve taken daily, relaxing walks on your properties; I laughed and cried at your posts; I’ve felt dwarfed by some fantastic writing; I’ve been introduced to some helpful photography tips; I’ve been spellbound over your artwork; I’ve been touched beyond words over your love of family, friends, humankind.
Because you let me look through your windows into your lives, I’ve become a much better person–I now understand my purpose. I couldn’t begin to express the warmth and affection I feel for all of you right now. As this year comes to a close, I wanted all of you to know this, to know that if you see a flash go by your window–it will be me. For now, I bow down to all of you, grateful for your camaraderie, comforted by your friendships.
