30,000

I haven't had the urge to post here lately, yet there was another milestone crossed last week that I HAD to acknowledge - 30,000 visits.

I have written in the past on this topic, most recently [here] at 25,000. In THAT one I reviewed the postings I put out (23) and the time frame (6 months). It would be MUCH easier to do that THIS time as I only had 15.

The INTERESTING part of reviewing the past half-year has been the stories on my old high school. They were (by far) the most read of ANYTHING I have written here. It was a nice surprise and I only wish the increased eyes would have meant more feedback.

I had decided way before this that I will write, not for a specific goal or dream, but for what moves me and FOR me. if others like it, all the better. I would LOVE to be able to call myself a TRUE writer and earn a living at it, but it seems that vision might be down a path I avoided.

No worries as I enjoy the words that come out. I ONLY post what I think is worthy of someone's time and believe me, MANY have NOT passed the test! I wrote about holidays (Memorial Day, Valentines Day, and Black History Month), wrote to Tesla and my President, ABOUT Mom, Stacy Dash and wildlife, dreams and demons. I still try to entertain, even if it's only ME reading.....

I think that Facebook has relieved much of my voice. I speak on there in short reply's or opinions. I thought about doing more postings from what I write there, but I am torn by the differing formats. FB is a quick-hit, where here is more involved and deeper... I think.

The past 6 months have been nothing to complain about. Mom and I have visited many places and met some cool people along the way. She REALLY likes travelling and it seems to be therapeutic. She truly is happier than I ever remember in her entire life and my task is to see that continue for as long as I can. There is no way of knowing how far this degradation will go. She is like having a youngster around, so I have no issues with THAT of course! hahaha

I can see Mom dominating most everything for a while and that is OK. I can take a backseat to her just as she did when I was young. Paybacks, in this case, are quite alright.
