This is one thing I love about blogging: I looked up my post one year ago, and got a kind of ‘sad chuckle’. I’d written about a local politician. He was all excited to have found out that Skype existed, but eight days later he was arrested by the RCMP and turned out to be one of the biggest [if not THE biggest] child pornographers/abusers in Canada. That put our city in a state of shock and disbelief, but I won’t dwell on that — he’s sentenced and put away. Please, follow the link and take a read, if you feel like it.
However, it’s fun to look back that way, so I will keep my writings here in this, sort of, ‘diary style’.
This first day of the year apparently started out the same way as last year; gloriously beautiful! Bitter cold though, the temperature had gone up to -4°F, or, -21°C for us, living in the ‘metric world’.
I read a blog, outside the WordPress ecosystem, by one of my ‘oldest’ online buddies … she was actually one of the first people I met online!
Her post reignited something I thought about at the stroke of midnight here in our AST time zone: How thankful I am to be where I want to be! No longing, yearning to be somewhere else … to be with the ones I love … my hubby and cat McDuff … where I can be ME. Wouldn’t want it any other way!
