A rhyme a rhyme my gold for a rhyme

Anniversaries they come and go,
it is a yearly thing, you know.
Unless you like them each week,
it could be that which you seek?

Once a year is good for me,
I am not too greedy you see.
An anniversary can be so nice it is sought,
or one you would rather have, not.

Not all of them are great,
some you could just hate.
We try not to pay homage to those,
maybe, instead, just write some prose?

A tribute to someone that has passed,
Or something in our memory, which is cast.
We should just try to forget these,
and focus on the ones that do us please.

We can dwell in our past if we desire,
those thorns can form such a brier.
Entangle us in its tangled grip.
deeper in we can slip.

The future is ahead.
look to it instead.
To my blog happy anniversary,
aren’t you glad this rhyme, wasn’t nursery?

Is it today or yesterday?

WordPress sent me a note last night, quite late too I may add. 

It is my Anniversary!

 

Wooot

 

Four years ago I started my blog, in those days I posted much more often, once or twice a day it seems instead of the once or twice a month I seem to have gravitated to recently.  

But it has been four years.

Now you can all send anniversary gifts to me, I like gold best. What?

We have a new planet. Well sort of.

They sort of discovered a new planet to replace the one we sent back a long time ago. This one is bigger so they are going to keep it. I thought size didn’t matter? 

No one has seen the new planet yet, but they have lots of pretty circles showing where it is, sort of. I mean they think it is there.2nd_p9_kbo_orbits_labeled_1_-1200x675Oh yes, the new planet, if it is there… is planet nine, sort of because it is ninth. So no real name yet.

 

I hereby claim planet nine. Henceforth it shall be known as Ambersville.

 

Tada.

sorry I am back yet?

Liebster Award

Joyce nominated me for the Liebster Award. 🙂

I confess I am very far behind (years… eeeps) on accepting and re-awarding awards, I maintain comments are reward enough for me. It also gets me off the hook with answering the questions that are posed with each award…. So this time I am going to answer the questions properly, with due dilligance, with the answers expected, in my normally evasive way, uhm… I should pick one of those?

Joyce asked:

1. Where do you live?
2. What do you find most satisfying about blogging?
3. What is the hardest thing about blogging?
4. What do you think is the biggest problem facing mental health today?
5. Have you found that the blogging community is a great source of support?
6. How long have you been blogging?
7. What is your passion in life?
8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
9. Why?
10. What do you like most about yourself?
11. What are you the most proud of?
