February 26th marks the first anniversary of Soul Gatherings. What a journey this has been… It still surprises me that almost 600 followers actually check in from time to time to read my posts and daily quotes. Almost 18,000 views from 99 different countries. I’m humbled.
I feel such an obligation to the popularity of the daily quotes that I’ve purchased 10 different books related solely to finding the most inspirational, motivational, thought-provoking quotes for my readers. Ka ching!!!
If I had to choose one word to describe the action of giving birth to Soul Gatherings, it would be “remembrance.” So many of my posts have been remembering people whom I’ve met, who have touched my life in some way. My readers have remembered these special people along with me, and in doing so, honored their memory.
Another word to describe this creation would be Light. Light shining into the broken places. Light building until the darkness is set ablaze with flames and sparks and life. Watchfires to light the passages of a journey begun, a beacon on the distant horizon.
Of hope. Always hope to light the way so that healing might begin.
Remembrance. Light. Hope. Inspiration. Support. Encouragement. Presence.
In the past year, I have learned these things about the blogosphere:
We are different; we are the same.
We share stories; we share ourselves.
We reach out; we touch hearts and hands.
We speak in different languages; we speak the same.
We harbor faith not confined by religion.
We believe and we dream.
We inspire and we offer hope.
We are present and never alone.
We are connected.
We are One.
Circles of Grace.
I am blessed.
Perhaps I will continue…
