Happy Bloggiversary (as a whole year rolls past)

mood: reflective

It is exactly a year ago since I wrote my very first post. I had not written online at all prior to this, had hardly ever been in a chatroom, e-mails had all been work and family, had never really met anyone online, never IMd or used a webcam, or seen anyone else’s coming to think of it.

My computer was primarily an instrument of work.

I had hardly ever written poetry, didn’t know how to write erotic material, didn’t know how exactly to respond to anyone else who had. An interest in writing that I’d had many years ago had diminished to occasional entries in a handwritten journal. How any form of human relationship could develop online was beyond my comprehension. There was a whole part of me concealed from experience, like a genie locked in a bottle.

And straying into A.F.F. seemed to play a part in popping the cork. Genie’s out of the bottle, and much as my interest in the rest of this friendly site is minimal it has created a long term “working relationship”.

Now my computer is primarily an instrument of friendship and leisure.

A big concern now is managing the blog-life balance. I have an active and busy life away from the screen …… it feeds the cats, gives me physical exercise and the opportunity to focus my eyes on distant objects. But the blog is deeply enticing, and difficult to escape from. Giving it all a real break is hard …. just one more post …… I simply must respond …….. and I’ve got to comment on so and so. More than that it has in its own strange way interwoven with “real life.”

Most wonderful have been those who have shared footsteps in the sand, whose friendship and companionship are beyond words. Where do I begin in those who have at one time and another touched my heart, my mind, my soul in so many ways?

Where do I end?

Suffice to say, you are special. Thank you a thousand times …….

And so we go so quickly to a year and a day……

Warm, one of the best things about blogging here is that it is so rich in wonderful material, so starkly human, people bare their souls here in ways they wouldn't dream anywhere else in the real world. It is amazing to discover that prior to this you've never written ... you have such an incredible gift and I count you always as one I can't forget, one I think about when I sign off ...

Happy Anniversary, You Beautiful, Beautiful Man

Dearest Huntress, it has been the power of your language and the way in which you create wordscapes with such skill that played a major part in making me realise how potent poetry is. In a handful of words you can create an eroticism screenloads of purple prose simply can't touch, because it is in the very music of those words that sensuality is evoked. So if there is a gift it is one that you have encouraged and nurtured, so I can hone it beyond some raw and long-forgotten attribute.

And to give me a gift such as your profound and awesome [post 485150]..... that simply caught my breath and I was without words for more than a few moments. So many many thanks.

You too have a rare and wonderful beauty ..... truly a treasure.

Happy anniversary, Warm. The blogs are a far better place with your genie out of the bottle. Allow it to continue to work its magic, which appears to be limitless. And may you balance well. Superbly done!

Thank you Frank. I really enjoy your blog too. It is witty, incisive, insightful and a great read.

It is hard finding that balance........I too have an active life away from blogville and have to remind myself that checking comments is not my priority.
I'm glad you're here

AS usual...
You have shared from your heart...and I feel as though I have heard you speaking to me as well as others as I drink my coffee. What could
be so bad about taking a coffee break with friends? I can't maximize
this kind of bright, witty and oftentimes inspiring number of coffee partners if I just take the time to meet someone one on one...although I love to do that. I chalk it up to that...and I'm posting less these days so that I do have the time to read others more and respond. Kind of like if we were having coffee

Happy Anniversary by the way!

Now................I still wanna meet you when I get across the
pond. You are a delight and I applaud your many gifts as you continue
to grow and learn and share with all of us... I feel very much the same way that you do and yet I know that I can manage to take time to connect to myself and others no matter how screwy that might look to someone who doesn't understand the heartfelt connection that I have here in blogland. Blog on {=}

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

I'm so pleased you're there Goddess and it has been a joy as well as a journey to make those wonderful discoveries about how we fit into this all too human cyberworld of blogland. I have always loved that blend of mysticism, savoire faire, and warm humanity that is so identifiably you and know there’ll come a time when you will cross the pond …….

I wonder how many of us actually are drinking coffee as we connect with our blogland neighbours, so yes, it truly is like drinking coffee with friends. The connections and the humanity are all too real. And thank you so much for always reaching out, being encouraging, and being simply radiant. Your posts are a tour de force so your praise goes a long way and is truly appreciated. Blogging on, as I hope and know you will too. {=}

Congradulations on your ONE year!
Hard to believe you've never written poetry. You're poems are good.
[Usually, they're written to the girls, so sometimes I feel funny commenting, but do anyway.]
And it's not just the poetry that is good, either. Everything you do is well thought out and interesting.
Keep it up! [But I know what you mean by "just one more post...I must respond". LOL!


warmandsexy52 replies on 8/29/2006 1:53 am:
TY poetry my good friend. It's probably that I have been surounded by women all my life ..... two sisters, wife and daughter, a female best friend and that I'm not soccer-mad that might just bias what I write. Or maybe - and more to the point - I like ladies, as you do too! Never feel inhibited to comment ..... poets can comment on each others' posts irrespective of content ..... and I always value what you write (and will never make a pass! lol)

To good times ahead, my friend.

Happy year # 1 ...

...I never known about those things either until that one odd day...where curiousness brought me here with a click of a button..... Now, I wouldn't know what to do without it.....

...oh yeah.... the cork definitely has popped for me too and more... {{{{LOL}}}}}}

congratulations and many more years to come.....

I understand the premise of an ass full of magnets sitting on a metal chair in front of the computer. But not turning those magnets off will land ya in a heap of trouble.

I can't believe you had hardly written any poetry a year ago, Warm. You are such a natural poet in my opinion (and I've got to say, I'm not a big fan in general).

It is funny, isn't it, how some things can change our lives so completely and so quickly? I look at my 5 and 7 year, and am constantly amazed at how they so easily rename programs (for seasonal events, like Solitaire becoming Christmas Solitaire), access things and work out IT solutions before I do.

Maybe I's just getting old

Blogito ergo sum.

Awwwww! That's so sweet of you, CB2!

Anyone who can still do a handstand like that is still young in my books ....... and anyway you're as young as the lover you feel!
