My Blog’s 2010 Social Life

The technological marvel that is WordPress sent me an email with my blog stats for last year. It’s intriguing and I’m encouraged that many people drank of the golden nectar that sprouts in heaven and flowers in my life on earth. haha. Thanks for stopping by my little house in DigitalLand. There is always a throw blanket to wrap yourself in and a warm fire to heat and inspire your most exorbitantly extravagant dreams.

  1. Dawn, I want to begin by stating that I heeded your instruction pertaining to posting a reply here: I drank mint tea, entered into the conversation you’re so gracefully conducting with the Author of all that is good (to get a true view of the View), and then proceeded to begin with this ongoing response. There was an interlude, however, that caused several hours to pass between the parts of “…Author of all that is good” and “and then proceeded to begin…” Aside from the time spent with my family (on the last day of their Christmas/New Year’s visit here in Redding), I also found that a fair portion of the interim featured a significant amount of awe, inspiration, and inspired “ah’s” alike — all resulting from the remarkable discourse found in this blog. This morning, as I was meditating on the wonders of the heavens, the skies, and the expanse of Google, I noticed your status update on Facebook (via Twitter) containing the New-est Year blessing as well as the link to the according blog entry. I took the invitation, began reading, and soon found myself all the way back at your entry from January 2nd of 2011! It was pleasurable journeying along with the content and aesthetic appeal your blog offers. The “fresher-than-ever” assessment stands true in my perception.

    Back to my inspiration from your “ah-inspiring” blog. I must thank you for your willingness to exhale — for expressing that which has inspired you so significantly. Had you chosen to keep this content in a private journal, far more than 1800 glance-owners would be living in lack of the heaven-sprouting, earth-flowering nectar of Gold and God. Instead, you let loose (scribally) the creative juices (and now I know that those juices speak of nectar!) and allowed the inspiration you’ve received to aid others in their attempts to break out of their restrictions (and into blossom). I am an “other” and I am eager to break into blossom as well. For some 15 years, I’ve kept a private journal (or seven), and aside from a rare share with a select few, my ramblings, musings, revelation-dissertations, chronicling, and poetic escapades have mainly inspired solely the eyes of their own author. After reading your blog, that fact is about to change. Though I have been impressed by high-quality literary works of many varieties in the past, yours is the first that has truly inspired my river’s eye (a.k.a. reverse eye = reverse sigh = happy breathing = laughter = beginning of prayer = river’s nigh) in regards to authoring a blog. The internal river of the eternal inspiration-giver is now giving birth to drinkable living water. Today, I have done something I have never done before — I activated a blog account on The unveiling of the name? Soon (depending on calculations and criteria of the fullness of the moon). Soon, I will no longer be waiting to exhale. Soon, I will see that it has already been spoken. Now, I must simply awaken and remember what I’ve said. Well, It’s a good thing I know why it’s important to raise the dead 🙂


  2. Wow, Neel. Thanks for this well-spoken encouragement and reflection! Do you write poetry? If not, you might want to dabble in it. Via yours words I am inspired to continue writing – not only my blog, but my book. Thanks for sharing your perspicacity. And DO tell me when your blog is afloat. I would love to drift by.

    Somehow I wouldn’t be surprised if you incorporated the word “Solarium” into your blog title – just a thought. : )


Drink some tea, join the conversation, post a reply.
