The Road Ahead

We Are One!
From the Shores of Introspect and Retrospect is a year old! We made it! And, by sheer luck and a sprinkling of irony... this is our 100th post!
~A look back...
It's been a good year. I started the journey on my own and a short time after I began, I adopted Viaggiatore from Seamus, we joined the Shameless Lions Writing Circle; and this fantastic lion has been right by my side every step of the way, since. We've made many wonderful friends with whom we have shared laughs & ideas, supported when there was sorrow, gained and given insight and explored life together.
It has been absolutely wonderful, and worth every moment.
~A look ahead...
It is our intention to post a LOT more often, and to visit with our treasured friends at every opportunity. I think sometimes that I would like to have a photojournalism blog, and post stories about the world around us, but this blog is a place of the mind, heart and soul, and it's flavor cannot change. It's grown from a small idea into what it is today, and that will continue as time passes.
I hope that you find common threads here. I hope that you find words worth your while. I hope that the ideas and stories that you find here inspire & encourage you. I hope you find friends here.
And I hope that when you leave, you have a little more Introspect and Retrospect in your pocket, to enjoy later on, down the road ahead.

Happy birthday! Has it really only been a year?! Wow!

Not surprisingly, I have been wondering about the focus of my blog, and whether to go to a more photojournalism format...but like you, though, eh, there's room for everything.

Or maybe a joint blog? Views from two sides of the world?

glad to be your friend.

Yeah I know.... a year? It seems like it's been much longer, in a very good way.

I am IN for doing a duo photojournalism blog with you, what an honor! Fantastic!
I wonder if you remember, we are on the same latitude... just opposite sides of the world; that might be an interesting way to tie it together.
GREAT idea!

Hey girl!

Thanks! I'm on my way over to visit you.


I'm so very glad that you are my friend as well, you are a good one, a funny-charming-sweet-strong-deep-devoted-sincere-precious one.
How blessed am I?
Blessed indeed.
Big hugs!

I never fail to leave here enriched!

A whole year - hasn't it just flown by?

'how did I ever believe that the shadows were strong? They are nothing but places without light.' - I love this!

Keep up the great writing!

Dear Rel,

I'm so glad to hear that, it makes me smile.
I wouldn't write another word, if it didn't touch another soul.


Time flies because we try to put too much into it. I'm a pro at that.
Need to slow down and count moments instead of minutes.

I'm so pleased you came away from this visit with a verse in your pocket! ;o)

Congratulations dear Scarlett and my deepest apologies for being away for so long. Your blog is an inspiration to many and always uplifting to me. Thank you for being there.

Congratulations on your one-year anniversary and your 100th post. How special that they coincide.

Mine will be two years old in June, but it feels as if we've both been doing this for so much longer.

Here's to another glorious year of knowing you!
