Hey, folks. Just wanted to interrupt our regularly-scheduled program to thank you. I don’t say that enough, and I never want anyone to think I’m taking them for granted. As of this weekend, the blog has reached over 1,000 followers. That’s way, way more than I ever imagined when I started! But it’s not about the numbers or hit counts; it’s about the people. All of you out there on the other side of the screens, each with individual tales and perspectives. I’m immensely grateful to know that there are others out there with passions, interests, and experiences similar to mine. It gives me a reason to believe that what I’m doing has meaning and purpose. If I can get you to see, learn, and think about something new, then I know I’ve done something right. As long as you keep reading, I’ll keep writing.
