I really thought that starting to move and recreate some old themes with new perspective here would be a quiet affair, one where I could build some writing quietly….but things here are much more dynamic and fast moving than I thought they would be!  My life has been in a state of rapid flux over the last few years, and in many ways, as things “settle down” my life rev’s up in new ways….which is to say that I wish I had more time to devote to reading through other blogs, to spend a week reading just one followers blog and then studiously go on to the next. Unfortunately, my work load makes this difficult right now.  I am in a transition point between teaching part time, working on a book, and doing studio work full time to just doing studio work and having more time to devote to the book and to writing here, which also means reading other blogs and following not in a half-hearted way but a full-hearted way.  I really don’t like doing things half-way!

So in my usual long-winded way, I wanted to take this moment to thank you all for following!  I am actually reading your blogs, bit by bit, but it’s just not enough for me to warrant a follow…..not because YOU don’t warrant it, but because if I am going to get your work on my desktop, I want to give it my all.  I do.  And have time for feedback, too!  So for now, take my lame excuses as promise for something coming soon where I will have the time to do some proper followage (my word) to your blogs.

With follows coming in at an all time high today, which probably is very modest for the blogosphere, I am nonetheless feeling like this is an apt birthday present, and one that makes me feel lucky on such a funny day as St. Patrick’s day is….a holiday of sorts, but one that is lighthearted even if Patrick was involved in some nasty pagan banishing (those snakes).  A little silliness and levity feels about right for this time of year.  A big gasp of air after a winter chill that is in our neck of the woods, rapidly falling away.

Thank you, each of you!
