This is my 100th post on Flotsam of the Mind. When I created this blog and published this post on January 3 of this year, I couldn't imagine what I'd have to say or who would possibly be interested in reading it. The answers were, respectively, quite a lot and many more than I would have guessed. Most of you never saw the first post because I only shared it with about ten people that I consider my inner circle. Only a later dose of bravery made me share the rest with all of you that I know personally and promote the blog to those I do not.
I am grateful for the creative outlet and the excuse to learn something new. I'm grateful for each of you who takes the time to read what I have to say--here or on the Flotsam of the Mind Facebook page--comments on either, and shares things you like with your friends. It has been a much more fulfilling experience than I would have guessed. Thank you.
