New Hahnemühle Nostalgie Journal

I reached my 1000th post and never noticed… But my friend  Dan Antion
reached his and that celebration made me look!  As I start my new journal this has
me looking back and forward, reflecting,
and the New moon is a good time to do that.

My first post was just saying hello.  Doesn’t really count.  I wasn’t even doing watercolors yet, not really.  A turning point was the A-to-Z challenge, where I “met” Dan, Cheryl, Mary, Damyanti, Sharukh, and Lois… they led to others… blogging buddies!

Friends in the virtual world have made a difference in my life, not just my blog.
That opened up to having a few other good friends on the internet,
Tracey and Jenn and Eliska and Debi and CC and Jorge (RIP) and art buddies
who don’t have blogs and some don’t even have sites.  It is a mind-changing thang
to understand that you care about peeps you’ve never met.
I am glad I did this blog thang and gladder still for what it brought into my life,
so much information and support and encouragement.

Finally, reflection about this phenomena that started without commitment, a lark so to speak, has touched me deeply and readers are a huge part of that experience.
Determining how to open and share, what to share, how much to share publicly
Has been a growing of my psyche as an artist.  Thank you for coming along for the ride.

New Journal begins, Autumn coming, and I am loving the change in weather.
this is my favorite time, and feels like it should be a Ndew year…
And of course, for some it is, Rosh Hashanah.
Started my journal, as I do, with intention and a deity…
And a happy memory of a garden Buddha from another time.

    I am so happy I met you, too, Katie! Isn’t it weird to go back to your first posts. I think I was writing to ghosts. I absolutely love all my blog buddies. We have such a great group here. And thank you, too, for my journal present–it arrived in the mail today!!!

    Katie, thanks for the shout out. I’m privileged and honored to know you through blogging and consider you a friend. I hope all is well with you, Mitchell, the critters, mom and your fabulous artistic sensibilities. Sending much love your way and hope to catch up to you and Dan some day with one thousand posts. Sitting at 818 this week, so I have some writing to do!


I love hearing from visitors!
