Three hundred Blog posts seems an astonishing number would have seemed a fanciful number to me when I began Blogging over three years ago and in many ways my life, outlook and the readership of my Blog have changed beyond recognition in that time. In short, around 180,000 words have spilled out of my strangely tuned imagination and littered the lives of a number of people, some of whom are lurching dangerously towards that small circle where my friends are treasured.
One of the things which gives me pause for thought, as I often write little stories, vignettes or whatever else you might call them is how, like dragon-flies, these whimsical productions buzz around brightly for a short while and then vanish into that un-light world we call ” Forgotten Posts” along with yesterday’s newspapers, come fish and chip wrappers, fire-work displays and other examples of ephemeral wonder.
To those forgotten tales I say, thank you for being a step in the path which has got me to where I am, and helped me to learn the craft of writing, and in the process meet some fine people.
Let us therefore raise our coffee cups, sandwiches or biscuits and make a toast to forgotten postings. “You help us find out who we are.”
