One year and 204 posts ago today my daughter pushed
me into the deep end of blogland. I coughed and spluttered
until I found my feet. Somehow my kite startd flying high
after I grasped the basics of enjoying my computer.
I am grateful for all the encouragement I have received
from my fellow bloggers, but more than that, for your
growing friendship during my learning curve.

Your expressions of sympathy and kind and caring thoughts
have helped me bear my recent loss. To all of you who cared,
a big, big hug and thank you.

I have barely had time to scratch myself this year, so I

Blogging has re-awakened my writing from its hundred
year sleep, and even got me painting again.

Above all, I have met all you wonderful people I now call
friends, and am privilged to be invited to your homes for
an on-line cup of tea, a glass of wine or even a gala ball.

Through this means of communication the world has
shrunk and engendered much better communication
between individuals at least.
We are all born, live, love, work and die, no matter
what nation or belief system we prefer to belong to.
So let us love each other and the world we live in and
thus make it a bettter place for those who come after us.

To Klaus and the MY WORLD/SkyWatch team a big
thank you for all the help I have had from you this year.
