Half a decade

GOTHIC #  5 , RED by Various Artists
GOTHIC #  5 , RED by
Various Artists


Writerquake was five years old on Feb. 25th, and I felt like it was time for a new blog design.
I am desiring change and a fresh perspective. Deeper sleep. Less stress. Spicy recipes. A change of scenery. Inner peace and composure. Greater insight. Spontaneous laughter. More love. 

Anniversaries are just great for contemplation and celebration.....even blog anniversaries.

Happy Anniversary. I love the new artwork. So many vistas to choose from.

Happy Anniversary! Now, that picture of a fire watcher up in the mountains doesn't feel like a change of place. Don't you want a south of the border spicy and rich concoction in your hand, rum and coconut and hot sand between your toes?
Yes, indeed, we're due for a change in perspective, all of us!

May you find the space you crave!

Lydia said...

English Rider~ Thank you. Glad you like the change(s). :)

rosaria~ Thanks! Well, not that the hot sand between my toes doesn't sound just perfect....but I'd take this scene, too. I didn't see it as a fire watcher, per se'... I saw something that felt exactly how I feel right now, though. :)

ds said...

Happy Anniversary! Love the new look: it is bold, adventurous and you can see everything : )

izzy said...

Change is good! Congrats.

very odd - thought i had left a reply to this. Happy anniversary and keep on blogging

Lydia said...

ds~ Thanks much. I really appreciated your thoughts. :)

izzy~ Well, yes it is! Thank you.

Pixies~ Thanks, my friend. Ya know what? I really miss your in depth comments that you shared on my Old Postcard Wednesday posts. Have been giving thought to starting it up again, but to be honest I am not sure I can adhere to a schedule like that right now. May one old postcard post per month?... Anyway, I always loved your witty and wise comments!

I too like the header image and saw it as a fire lookout as well. Nice views are great for contemplation. Congratulations on five.

Lydia said...

Lester~ Thanks for the good wishes and positive input.

Time flies...happy anniversary...what was your very first post, I wonder? Mine was pretentious, and thankfully, no one checked in...in fact, it went on that way for 3 months...after awhile I picked up a few pals. Cyber friends...a whole new way of knowing people I would not have, but for...

Lydia said...

myth~ I always enjoy a visit from you, as you are one of those cyber friends I treasure. My first post is actually fairly easy to access, as it is incorporated into a later OPW post that has been viewed enough times to put it in that "Popular Posts" segment in my sidebar. Look for the one about Red Rocks Theatre. (I'd love to read your first one.)

Brian Miller said...

nice...very cool...counting down to 5 years myself...and you know i have never changes the design of my page....hmm....perhaps i should...really like what you have done with your page lydia....

Lydia said...

Brian~ I just found your comment in the spam file. Cannot figure why they would have placed it there with all the messages in Russian! So glad I paid attention before deleting the group because your comment meant a lot to me. Your blog, coming up on 5 years, deserves a new look if you are into doing it (it's such fun, really).

susan said...

I noticed your beautiful new header right away, an excellent spot for a meditating Lydia. Did you paint it?

Congratulations on your 5th year. Mine passed unmentioned by me last September. I'm waiting to see if I make it to 10. I hope you'll still be posting your wonderful poems then too.

susan~ susan~ I did not paint it, as I am not an artist. I found it at tarot.com, actually and hope that I am not infringing on rights by using it here.
We just have to move day-by-day toward those ten year anniversaries. btw, I shared your disappearing artist post link at my facebook page and already have some "likes" and positive comments. Thanks for all your wonderful posts!

Rastaman said...

Happy Anniversary!

This made me go back and check when I first posted .... wow ... March 30, 2006. But, I haven't been consistent all those years.

Congratulations!

Lydia said...

Rastaman~ Many thanks. Wow, you were among the blogging pioneers just about! Glad you are being more consistent lately, as your voice is important. I really like your writing!

Like the whole new look of your blog -- in celebration of your big 5. I'm sure you'll still be creatively blogging for your Big 10. -- barbara
