So this was my debut post here at WP, 8 years ago, October 19, 2011!

…and it sure has been a fortunate virtual journey all these years, for which I am grateful to each and every friend I’ve made here.


May you all enjoy good fortune wherever life takes you!

  3. I am delighted that we have shared the blogging journey for the past 8 years. We have been on a grand adventure. And more to come. Looking forward to your 2020 calendar!

  4. Eight years ago… I remember it well. It was a very dark time. The world seemed bleak, hopeless. I was lying in the gutter, wondering if I should get up and put another coin in the parking meter, when a complete stranger came up to me– well, down to me, actually– and shoved an iPad in my hands and cried: “Check this out, you poor wino!!”

    It was… Art Towards A Happy Day. A yellow half-and-half tree. It filled me with hope, and the most inexplicable happiness. It changed my life… I’m still lying in the gutter, but now there’s a big smile on my face. 🍨😋
