Brother, I wish you were home
Just tell me you’re not alone
Call me back; I’m on a plane
I think I’m somewhere over Spain.

So I’ve hit half a thousands posts and it only took… three years and a bit! I didn’t reblog more than twice see. It started as a travel blog through Europe, then in South Korea, and now throughout Canada as a hobo & a sales rep. All along the way books, movies & blogs made brought me quotes to spice up my own content, and I did take the odd photos.
It was fun. And also cathartic during the strange months when grief took a strong hold of my life. Deaths in the family, all within a short time, were the worst part of my existence so far. So I tried to write odd & true things about the dead, and to take on some of their responsibilities & amusements while exploring new interests of my own, like flowers & agriculture.
Some people might wonder why I don’t use WordPress or LiveJournal for all this writing but I like Tumblr for a number of reasons. First of all my editor Jenny Tang recommended it, and secondly I like how there’s a period after the site name on our Dashboards. Most importantly though, it’s populated by folks who accept all expression as a form of art. Whether you just reblog what you like or you populate this world with your own content, it’s all good.
Doesn’t mean it’s always good content. But that’s life and life on the Internet. Sometimes it rocks, sometimes it don’t. There’s enough shit out there so please don’t publish sloppy copy but keep making things and keep trying. I will try to keep from making typos while I write for you to read.
So thanks Tumblr & users. Be well. I’ll keep you posted.
