wonderstruck

the subtitle of this blog reminds that i post about "things that make an impression on me...for whatever reason". what's impressed me today is the number of people who have visited this blog through blog of note and the distances from which they have viewed it. in the last 43 minutes alone, five hundred viewers have dropped in to serendipitous. visitors come from above and below the equator, from lands i'd need a map to locate, and from places where it's already tomorrow. all these stops into my little corner of the blogosphere serve to demonstrate just how big the world really is - and how very small it has become.

thank you for your visits and your comments. i'm glad you like this place.

How nice of you to say that! I dopped in a few days ago, and I liked it imediately. I'm from Romania and I bet you have no idea where this little country is. Well, I think it doesn't even matter, since a blog (or things such as music, photos, poems, films) can brind people so close... from all around the world. You've made a goos job! Keep it that way.

Julie Wilkerson said...

I am enjoying the images you post and the window into your world so very much! I was born a New Englander and live so very far from that life here in southern CA ... long for the colors and hues that are only New England. You do a great job inspiring that memory and creating an urgent need for me to, at last, return home!
