A couple of weeks ago I was aware that the anniversary of my blogging at stickpoet was nearing an then I got busy and plum forgot about it until I read a comment from a reader this morning wishing me a happy blogaversity. There is a small countdown tab at the lower sidebar that alerts readers the number of days till the next one. It is obscure enough that it only catches my attention every so often.
It is true... this is the 8th anniversary and the 2,922 post and I look back and realize that anyone who blogs for any length of time invests a lot of themselves into the process.
Over these eight years poetry has not only been a passion but become a part of my daily fabric. I am a true believer in the concept of a poetry lifestyle. I means you are constantly aware of things about you in a way others aren't. It means you are always looking for the language in pictures. Always trying to simplify the complex and sometimes look for more then there appears on the surface. I think there is a certain spirituality between the poet and the universe that just doesn't exist otherwise.
To those who stop by on occasion to read stickpoet or those who subscribe to a feed, a big thank you. I especially appreciate those who leave comments & become part of a dialogue. Non-spam comments are always welcome. Spamers however, don't waste your time, due your existance the comments are moderated and those posts never see the light of day.
I have a few ideas for some posts and topics for the very near future that I hope many of you will find interesting. So thanks again and keep coming back!
