Happy Anniversary to Us!

So I received an unexpected notice late last night from WordPress, telling me that the one-year anniversary of my opening my account here has tolled!

WordPress did not actually send me this balloon...but the sentiments were there!

That’s right: it has now been exactly one year since I signed up here and started blogging.  Put another way, the Earth has now come back around to exactly that same position in space relative to the Sun that it occupied when I first broke posting ground here…which is the same kind of landmark we celebrate with any other kind of annuity-based achievement (birthdays, wedding anniversaries, etc.).  It’s been an excellent year here, too, even if I’ve lagged quite a bit since around New Year’s (another annual celebration!) in terms of generating content.  Still, to borrow from The Four Seasons and The Spinners: I keep working my way back to you, WordPress, and will strive to continue doing so!  I sincerely appreciate the forum here for jabbering on about all things metaphysical, and the feedback I’ve received over this year just finished.

Looking forward to the next trip around the Sun, and all it brings — thank you, WordPress!

[And I’m happy to report that just as I was about to hit the “Publish” button on this post, from my open window, I heard the distinctive cawing/croaking sounds that mean that one or more representatives of the Raven family have decided to wander into the vicinity…and sure enough, a look out that same window confirmed that a pair of the always delightful Corvids were wheeling about in a large circular track in the sky just to the north of my home (like…two black planets orbiting an invisible Sun…??) — for me, this is like receiving approval from Huginn and Muninn themselves, which I’ll always accept rather joyfully…]

The great Norse God, Odin, accompanied by his two Ravens, Huginn and Muninn...not to mention his eight-legged steed, Sleipnir, and his magic spear, Gungnir (although I only saw Ravens here today, not God-Kings, Horses with any number of legs, or spears...[yet...])...
