A blog that I follow shared a lovely quote from John Burroughs, so appropriate in this fall season:
"How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days."I encourage you to check out her blog, We Heart Yarn - the photography is stunning. (And I just now learned how to make that link open in a new window. Hurrah!)
Today is the first blogiversary of Robin Gets a Life: I published my first blog entry on November 2, 2010. I've just skimmed the year's posts; it seems that I've been consistent in publishing, but not entirely consistent in quality. Can I share my favorite posts? (I'm going to, but feel free to ignore.)
The Trees Play Dress Up. I like the photography in this one, and I am pleased with the mix of poems and photos.My goal for the next year: more carefully crafted entries, which will require more care and tending of my blog.
Self-Restraint. This was better writing than I find in most of my entries, and still makes me smile.
A Memoir of Love and Loss and Life. This was a review of a well-written book, which should probably get some of the credit for the well-written blog entry.
|Oh Mom - focus on the writing,|
and skip the dog photos!
