Welcome …

The air is crisp and chill
The morning is bright yet.. quiet and still
A new day is here to greet you,
With great kindness it comes to meet you
One that has never been before
Are you ready to open wide the door
And venture forth for a long country mile…
All you need to bring is your very own smile

  1. Wonderful quote, Rory! I’ve loved Albert Einstein since I was 13 years old and read a biography of him. I forget who gave it to me and who the author was, but remember it was a fine, thick, heavy book with a red cover – written on that thin, crisp paper like Bibles have. I treasured it. What I liked about his biography itself was the everyday background of his life. It provided such a clear picture of his struggles to adapt and development – in early childhood, especially.

    Thanks to you and Suzanne for her lovely poem. It’s such an inviting invitation to Autumn, isn’t it?

    My Blog an important part of my day. I enjoy the connection with my WordPress family, sharing inspirational material that has impressed me in some way, in case it will serve to do the same for others. It isn’t big, or busy, nor does it have any other purpose. And I like it that way. 😊

    Umm, I can just imagine the wonderful fragrance of the wisteria looking at the photos. And the Toadflax has provided the lion a beautiful mane. He must be very proud! 😊

    1. Hey Betty,

      I too remember reading a biography of him and was inspired at a young age like you were also 🙂

      Suzanne’s poen is indeed a wonderful tribute to autumn 🙂

      Yes l loved the way the way the lion had this a la natural wispy look about him also. Very fitting.

      Blogs are indeed an important part of our lives Betty for many many reasons, l agree, The blog we style for ourselves is l think an expression and an extension of who we are as people.

      1. Another interesting similarity, Rory. Point of note, I read that Nassim Haramein is his reincarnation. He has followed through from where Einstein left off. If you are interested, you can check out his current work at the Resonance Science Foundation website.

        I agree with your opinion concerning Blogs, Rory and that is perhaps what makes them so popular. 😊

      2. I think it probably is Betty – many things we do in life and become embroiled with usually end up as extensions of our alternative personalities that we are simply unable to express in real life.


  2. My blog isn’t super popular and it’s easy enough for me to keep up with comment replies and linkbacks. I do enjoy reading posts and writing every day. It’s definitely an important part of my life ❤️

    1. Yes l think there is a definite sweetness to not having a blog that is too busy, but busy enough. I have been working with this one in a very different way – ignoring views and likes and concentrating upon comments only.

      I was tooing anfd froing how l wanted this blog to come across to readers, and recently made some changes that reflect me more.

      But busy busy false blogs no longer interest me and l tend to see the nefariousness with hugely supposedly popular blogs anyway these days.

  3. Even though I’m in “Lurker Mode” currently with my blog, I know I’ll be back at it when I’m ready. I’ve kept at it for many years now and without my blog, I never would’ve met the wonderful friends I have!

    I love, LOVE wisteria!! Beautiful pictures, beautiful poem… great way to start my day today! (even though my day unfortunately started hours ago with HRH, and getting him onto the GLYSB🤪)

  4. “How important is it to you to run and maintain a busy popular blog?”

    As a retiree, having a blog, busy and popular or not, is important to me. It gives me an opportunity to write, to express myself, to compose short pieces of fiction, and to interact with people all across the globe. It keeps me busy and if it’s popular, that’s icing on the cake.

  5. I just started another break where I am writing offline instead of maintaining my Blog. My break early in 2022 led me to post once a week instead of once a day. That cut visits to the Blog by 75% but my current break probably reflects that maintenance of a busy Blog is not that important to me. It is fun for sure but it takes time away from other fun things like reading books.

    When I began in 2016, writing was 99% of my effort because I had only a couple followers and it was rare to get a comment. By the end of 2021, writing posts took a minority of my Blog time. The majority was taken with reading other Bloggers who followed me, researching things I learned from them, commenting on other Blogs, and responding to comments on my posts.

    In life you go through different stages. I have always been very physically active. I continue to run, hike, and swim; but I gave up softball in my mid 40’s, skiing in my early 60’s, and biking more recently even though many of my friends continue those activities and I am physically capable of continuing. Balancing priorities seems like a very personal decision that can often be hard to explain to others without being misinterpreted.

    1. Hey Geoff 🙂

      A great response and honest too. I agree with you. I also lead a very active physical life and it has become more so over the last five years alone. I have to try and balance my life first to that of the blog and many a time life is still my leading motivator. I like to write and l enjoy writing, but like you l find l need to balance my priorities and sometimes that isn’t easily understood by others.
