One Year Today!

Laura and Happytiler at lunch! I took our picture!

Enhanced, entranced, enthralled in the
Bodacious world of blogging
Deserting daily duties
Abducted by artistic action
Delving deeper into the deluge
Of visceral visions, fueling fortitude
Passionate projects anticipated
Inspiration ignited, one to another
Buzzing through lines,
Feeding vacant vessels
Yearning for elation established by creation
Connection, contentment, compassion
Elevated adulation everyday
Reading, writing, meandering
Through the blogsphere
Constructing new posts, with art
Wisdom, poetry, zeal
To pass on as a legacy.

One year ago today I started a blog to discipline my writing. Instead I found a phenomenal community of friends and inspiration! It’s been a year of self discovery, extensive enlightenment, and joy! My path has expanded, as I scurry to the computer to share bits of my life, then jump from blog to blog to enjoy a morning visits with distance friends celebrating their creativity and at times sharing in their woes.

Originally my blog was to be left as a legacy for my daughter; instead I have become enriched and educated as I saunter down different blog avenues. Sharing in on the intimate lives and opinions of others has helped clarify and enhance the person I am.
As much as I know for a woman of fifty as a Jackie of all trades master of none, I realize in the magnitude of life, I really know nothing!

I want to take the time to passionately thank everyone who takes precious time out of their day to grace my blog or send me an email. Your thoughts and comments are always revered. I feel so blessed to have you as part of my life. Although I have an aversion to snail mail, I want you to all to know, should you ever visit British Columbia I will always have a scrumptious meal and a cozy home waiting to feed you body and soul!
Here’s to a new year of blogging, tons more creative endeavors that have been fired up because of this wonderful medium we call blog!

This is a piece of art I did a few weeks ago! Such a blunder I made, by accidentally mixing oils and acrylics, not hard to tell I’m new at this! What can I say the tubes were small, my eyes are 50! It took forever to dry and now resides in my loft, Pepper loves it. So that’s a good thing! The colors and shading aren't really accurate in this photo!

Happy Blogiversary! I have been playing catch up again but I'm glad I made it by today on your special day. I'm glad you decided to start a blog last year because otherwise I'd never have known you or seen your fantastic artwork! I love the hearts with their curly tails. Here's to another year of blogging!

Oh I'm sure you are having a great time. My first visual on my new blog is thanks to you. Go see when you get a chance!

You don't need to post this one, I just wanted to thank you for droping by and I read your whole post. You to a year and celebrating as me to a brand new beginning.

I'd suggest tossing the oil paints. They are so archaic. One can accomplish so much more with acrylic and they dry so much faster. Just my opinion from learning to paint with oils pre acrylic. Once I discovered them, I threw all my oil paints away. Cheaper, truer colors and dry faster. What? LOL

Happyy Anniversary Sherrie!! I can't believe it's been only a year. You seem like you've been doing this forever. I love reading all your wise words.We should be thanking you! Love the painting!

Ohhhhhhhhh hello there! I came to your blog via Kai, who I had the fortune of meeting up with in UK, via blogging! What a great community we share. It will soon be a year for me I guess, but over the next 24 hours I will see my 14,000th visitor to my blog, people sharing my everyday life!
Will make a point of visiting regularly! Us 50 year old creative women should stick together! LOL!

Congrats on your one year journey of self discovery. It is an amazing format in which to grow as a person.

The blog world would have less light without you. You are one of the most sincere, warm and giving of your loving heart people I've been blessed to meet in this fashion.
I told G about your invite - I told him what I need is to go up there by myself and have some good old fashioned girl time. So you just never know my friend!!
Thank you for your love and light!
