When I wrote my first blog post on January 1, 2013, I never thought I’d still be here, now, blogging away.
Two thousand thanks to all who helped me blog daily, including Michael who took over for two posts (here and here ) after my open heart surgery on September 21, 2016. Michael’s two posts had the most likes and the most comments in the last two thousand days, but who’s counting?
Actually, over the last two thousand days, I’ve asked “Who’s counting?” many, many times, and I think today is a great day to reveal the answer to that question.
Who’s counting? Me. I’m counting. And I’ve been counting on this blog and on all of you to help me learn, grow, and get through every day.
Let’s see if the latest photos on my iPhone are relevant for today.
They were taking off the roof of this house yesterday on the South Shore of Boston. Later that day, I saw and heard somebody in a Chicago subway station tap dancing to “Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof.” (A song that helped me get through pneumonia, as described in this April 18, 2016 post.)
One of my quests over the last two thousand days was to move near the water, and I made it! Here’s a link to one of the many posts from that quest.
Over the last two thousand days, I’ve collected hundreds if not thousands of thank you’s.
There’s Boston, my home town.
This blog has given me an exit to hopelessness, worry, and judgment.
With readers like mine and my apparently endless commitment to blogging, the sky’s the limit!
When we were walking around Chicago yesterday, I asked my son Aaron if he thought that photo was interesting or funny. We couldn’t decide.
As usual, I’m going to throw in the rest of my photos from yesterday and hope they fit the post.
I got this great video for today’s post!
As always, thanks to all who help me create this daily blog and — of course! — to YOU.
