blog friendships

50 posts later. I started this blog at the beginning of the year, ambivalent about its purpose and destination. I was hoping to subtly generate interest for my work, to explain my process, and show off unusual pieces.  The personal stuff, which terrified me at first, has crept in here and there. I also found that I love to share discoveries of beautiful things and talented people. 

What I did not anticipate or expect was the friendship that evolved with other bloggers. We never met in person, or chatted on the phone. Instead we have communicated through comments, emails, and by reading about each others work, struggles, delights, and adventures. It is a special kind of friendship, unassuming and generous, spanning vast geographical areas. If we really got together over coffee or wine there is a chance the conversation would grow dull, but I sincerely doubt it...

I commemorate my 50th post by celebrating these friends, whom I would never have "met" if I had not started this endeavor, and all of whom are wonderful writers, photographers, artists, and inspirations. Thank you Julia, Mrs. FrenchMarie Louise,  Tyler,  Tracey, Patricia, and everybody else who have stopped by to visit these past months. You warm my heart!
