Travel Theme: Edge

From Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack comes this week’s Travel Theme: Edge.

If you must speak ill of another, do not speak it, write it in the sand near the water’s edge.

I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can’t see from the center.

I am shocked, amazed and elated! I just received notification that I have 500 (and a few more) followers.  I know that compared to some blogs I read, this is just a drop in the bucket, but for me it’s a milestone that means lots. All I can say is thank you — thank YOU! My blogging began as a way to fill my time after losing my job and deciding it was time for an early retirement. Never in my wildest dreams did I think anyone would really find what I had to share that interesting. Let alone over 500 people!

So many of you have become such friends here. We have chatted and shared. You are all so wonderful, so friendly. You are what keeps me going with this blogging. At first it was just a way for me to write and record. Then people began liking and following. I’m still amazed!

I just want to say again how much I appreciate all of you. I look forward to your visits and comments. And I love reading and following your blogs. I am in awe at the talent that I see. I have learned so much reading your blogs. I have laughed and cried with your posts. You have all touched my heart and my life in some way. This is a real community!
