More Of The Same Please

As I look toward the New Year - I hope I'll be 'Looking Up' - both literally and figuratively. I don't know who this entranced birder is, but I know what she's doing. She's (ahem) looking up and hoping for beauty, mystery and someone beside her to whom she can turn and with whom she can share the joy of discovery. For us blogging fanatics that someone is not infrequently a blogging buddy with whom we've made a friendly connection based on shared philosophy or the joy of exploration and learning or just the delight of a good chuckle. Yes, even a shared tear, now and then.

I missed my first blogging anniversary - December 29th. Wow that went fast in some ways and in others seems like a very long time.

At my age, looking toward the New Year - I really don't have large, elaborate goals - only a grateful heart for so much that is good in my life - and the quiet, hopeful request for more of the same - please. My warmest wishes to my blogging friends for much love, light and laughter in the New Year.

Happy wishes for the new year and congrats on a year of blogging.

I've only just started hanging around here, but do so enjoy the sense of whimsy in your posts!

Just had a peek at your profile and see that you're a Kooser fan - I love him, too.

Thanks Laura - and all the best to you and yours (special wishes for your furry rescue friends:0) It's good to find another Kooser fan.

Happy New Year to you! I'm so glad to have discovered your blog; your wonder of the natural world is inspiring.

Laura said...

Cathy, as one year ends so another begins. I can't believe you've only been at this for a year ... Looking Up is so rich and well... established feeling! I've been overdue to comment, though I tried earlier this month when December Rainbows was at the top of the blog (love those images!) Unfortunately, I was waylaid by a blip in my internet connection and didn't get back. I've added Looking Up to gigglefern's links so that I'll think to visit more often.

Life is full of new puppy wonders right now... truly a blessed way to both finish and start a year!

Happy New Year from (another) Laura

I have enoyed your blog a very great deal indeed and look forward to more shared pleasures in the new year. Carry on....Please!

Tim - So nice to make your acquaintance -I love your blog name and your poetry. Happy New Year to you and yours:0)

Laura - When I discovered your blog last year it was as though I'd been wandering down a dark road and saw a home up ahead with bright, welcoming windows. Your love of family, nature in all its forms and of course 'The Corral Cam' drew me in for many pleasant visits. All the best to you and yours in the New Year. I'll stop by soon for pup up-dates :0)

Swamp4me - I'm so glad I found your blog - always such a pleasant stroll - even when I'm navigating the shoals of funny looking scat.
Beauty and the best in the New Year!

Dan - You're a dear and it pleases me immensely that you find my musings a worthy diversion from the demands of your busy day. See you in the New Year. May it be filled with happiness for you, Jonna and my favorite pup - Hudson.

dmmgmfm - Laurie - Thanks for the good wishes - Your mischieviousness as well as your tenderness inspires me. Did we hook up through the "2,996 9/11" project? Yep, I just checked. Kismet :0)

Mischievious...me? Surely you have me confused with someone else? ;-)
