It's been a great year

In a little quiet time I have realized that I have been blogging on ActiveRain for just over a year. In fact it was 10/04/10 that I reached tentatively into blogging after lurking for a while. What would the old and the bold think!

With 311 posts (2000 comments made/1984 received), and a growing list of readers, I am more involved than I could ever have dreamed (2/6/13 for city/county/state position).

Early encouragement  and criticism was extremely beneficial. I have learned so much about so many different parts of the United States and Canada, so much about giving, caring and sharing people who communicate and educate so willingly. I expect to meet more of you personally in the future.

My reach to others is now global as well as just around the corner. My comments turn up in such unexpected places; they spark new communication, renew old friendships.

I am alive in Sandy UT ~ a great place to live.

ActiveRain has informed me, given me goals, and encouraged me. I feel I shall be here for a long time to come.

Here's to all who meet and greet in the coming year.

Larry,  Congratulations on one year in the Rain.  We all arrive here from a different place ... a different motive.  The results are the same.  We learn, me grow, we make friends, we build, we laugh, we cry, and sometimes we say goodbye to friends who departed. It's amazing who connected we can become to those we have never met ... here in the Rain.
