I did not.
And yet, I owe you every pleasure I get from writing this blog, which is pretty considerable. Without Ms. Moon, I wouldn't even have considered it. Without the generous, encouraging comments of my friends Lorie and Lauren, and Miss Inga, and Katie and many others, I wouldn't have stayed with it. Without the unexpected blessings that fall from the sky in the form of comments from readers I've never even met, I'd have doubted myself as a writer far too much to work in the environment. Rodney's hat, complete with Boxer ears; a genuine request to hear the MadriGals simple music; help with the composition of the blog itself...I owe this to you. I owe you the fullness of my heart when I've written something I rather like, especially when you like it, too.
So thank you. I'm off to write about something profound that I'm pretty sure will blow into my head in the next 10 minutes or so. Or perhaps I'll tell that sweet potato recipe that serves as one of the Eat Here cornerstones. Whatever it is, thank you for reading, for talking back, for sharing your joys and hearts and aches and pains and love.
Love, love, love.
