One Year Old

March 1, 2009

It’s my blogiversary.

“Voice of the Turtle” was started February 29, 2008. My writing has gotten better, and then worse, as have my photos. Currently I have no access to a camera and no photos stored in this new computer, hence the spare look, and nothing to write about anyway. And when my computer gave up the ghost only two weeks ago, my daily-entry streak was broken. And I’m anxious and depressed and getting snippy. Not to mention whingeing more. Or writing sentence fragments.

In comparison, how are my blogfriends? The governor of California, where Dennis the Vizsla lives, has just declared a state of emergency on account of their drought. Goodbear is recently bereaved of a close friend. Gina is in pain. Alyson and Livingisdetail are mourning the devastation caused by Australia’s wildfires. Elizabeth had to have spinal surgery. The Aged Cat and Checkers have pretty much left the blogosphere for personal reasons. Everyone has their troubles.

My igoogle homepage includes quotations from a few famous people. Today’s quotation from Plato reads:

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Sounds like a plan.
