1 year and 151 posts later...
I just passed a milestone in the land of blogs (or maybe it's just in my mind). My first post to this blog was on May 12 of last year. Believe that?
I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that I'd like to a little something in honor of this milestone. I hope to have details up by the end of this weekend, as a thank you all that visit and especially to the wonderful folks that take the time to comment.
So stay tuned for a little fun...
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
