|Discovery of the Light can be Blinding.....|
This is a special occasion. One Hundred, count them, yes, 100 posts later, we're still here at Incoming Bytes ! We are still here.
Isn't that amazing? Why did we persist so? Stubbornness. Foolishness, persistence, the will to survive, no matter what?
Detractors and critics --we are sorry to disappoint you. We didn't give up. We didn't quit. We did not run out of stuff to write about either.
Loyal friends, contributors, supporters and readers, rejoice, we clearly shall overcome!
We have become a real blog, talking about real stuff.
From the abuse of Kakabeka Falls to Fukushima Japan's nuclear disaster, elections and disastrous political games, the destruction of Canada's Avro Arrow--an aircraft that has few equals even 50 years later! We happily digressed to bonsai and heaps of gardening all the way to the Middle East--- and even dared to wander back home into dull, boring politics, electioneering and tongue-in-cheek political-psycho-babble, sanctions and mousy local dictatorships.
From sugar-maple mysteries, discussions of garden zeitgeists, Glory Lennon our gardener all the way from sunflowers to oaks, we have even migrated across the tender economics of economic growth, global failure and the fall of nasty dictators.
Snowmobile high-marking made it to the foreground when that foolish, mindless sport caused deaths yet again last winter! Will they never LEARN?
Predictions of Doomsday were discussed right on time, but Harold Camping and his doomsday money-making machine failed to make it happen. Twice yet!
A couple of wonderful guest posts were included, one by Adriana Heep, a young thinker who clearly offers hope for humanity, and M.J Joachim (Gum Pets on the Hill) who stirred the hearts of alert readers with her distinguished voice in poetic justice.
We even got to the point of telling stories, checking out Glorious Flower Power, tales of persistence and and promoting the publishing of eBooks, starting with my new Christmas classic, Morgidoo's Christmas Carol. We have hypothesized about the new Age of Light --and recently welcomed a new website EffectivelyHuman.com, a site that promotes human worth and dignity, something necessary to initiate the Age of Light. We asked questions.
I still like this question the best: "Is willful nuclear expansion a sign of collective human insanity, insatiable corporate greed, total lunacy, irresponsible governance, --or proof positive of all of the above?" (MUST WE Contaminate the world with Radiation? Say NO! (Mar.23rd 2011)
As a reader, what more could you ask ? The fact is, almost any subject matter may show up at Incoming Bytes.
Where are we going NEXT? Wait and see. Stay tuned. Participate! Enjoy!
Where do we stand after 100 posts? We still want you to think, --if you dare. We also want you to stand and be counted.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
