Well, dear readers, thanks to your constant encouragement, occasional derision and regular stories of positive change, I am thrilled to announce that we have accomplished one thousand three hundred consecutive daily posts together as of this morning! I set my self to this task based on the recognition that my fulfillment depends wholly on my ability to assist others to theirs and though publishing a daily post has been a ton of work on top of my family duties, responsibilities at work, travels and extracurricular interests, the process of writing daily has been deeply satisfying.
The last three and a half years have been full of pleasant surprises, considerable challenges and wide-ranging opportunities for creative expression for me and I understand from the heartening letters and thoughtful comments to my posts that they have been the same for many of you. Each of you has so much to offer and no matter how young or old, rich or poor, powerful or limited, disciplined or not you may feel in any given moment, there is always room for growth and refinement.
Thank you again for your support and yes, even your criticism and anonymous vituperation. Both matter to me immensely; both compel me to elaborate more completely, passionately and keenly on the various subjects near and dear to my heart.
Onward and upward－
