Welcome All! I'm a dreamer, I hope you are too! A Posse ad Esse, or From possibility to reality, is a general state of mind. I hope you'll share your possibilities with me as I will with you. Namaste~

Happy Blogiversary. (1 year)

One year ago today I decided to convert what was basically a practice blog on myspace to a full fledged, as often as I can post, blog. I guess I didn't realize how much I would enjoy it, but I do a great deal. I look forward every day to checking in to see who came to visit and where in the world from. I get such a kick out of all of the comments and input that I am blessed to receive from all of you.

I didn't plan a specific identity for this blog, and really didn't have too much direction in mind for it other than the fact that I wanted to make a concerted effort to focus on all of the positive things in my life, and in the world around me. As I did this, it was like a sea change in myself. One thing led to another, one change compounded onto another. The journey was on, and so it goes today.

Today, I look at almost everything I do in a new perspective; a writers perspective. When I take on a new challenge, I want to share it with others; not just to document my life, but hopefully to inspire or instruct. I sometimes get an almost guilty feeling when I know I haven't posted anything for a couple of days, because I've been either busy or just have nothing to say, and I know the same people have checked in a couple of times. I feel responsible to you for some kind of relevant commentary yet at the same time it is primarily for myself that I blog in the first place. It's an odd dichotomy.

This year, I hope to bring more useful information to you. I want to continue to focus on my families progression to a more self sufficient and sustainable life, and share with you our experiences growing food and raising our backyard poultry. I'll of course document all of my DIY efforts and creative re-purposing and hope to be able to branch out into some more traditional forms of publishing. (i.e. print media.)

I hope those of you that have been with me for most of this last year will keep stopping by, and invite those of you who may have just found me to lurk around a while if you like, or better yet, drop me line with a comment or question and let's get some dialogue going. So that said, Here's to a great first year and, hopefully, many more!
