Today I am a little older and a little wiser! Or anyway, older.
I'd like to thank you for seeing me into another year. Most of you I have never met in person, and yet you have been endlessly supportive and lovely and funny and genuinely, an important part of my life.
This sounds silly sending out into cyberspace - "Hi! Thanks everyone out there I don't know!" But those of you who blog know it can be such an affirmation of the kindness in the world, and that it connects you to such wonderful people. Call me sappy. I don't care.
I feel like I've gotten so much from all of you, and yet, greedily, I'd like to ask for a little more. So if you'd be willing to grant me a birthday wish, I would greatly appreciate it.
What I would like from you is some little piece of information, some clue about you. Some of you played this last year. If you did, I would love it if you'd indulge me anyway. Update me. I might ask for this for as long as I blog.
There are those of you who I know in person, or have at least met face-to-face. And there are those of you I feel like I know, because I read your blogs. Or because you comment and make me think and giggle and give me a little glimpse into you.
And there are lots of you I know absolutely nothing about. But I assume we must have something in common, or you wouldn't be visiting LG.
What I am always most curious about is how you wound up here and what made you come back. And if there's anything you'd like to see more of, what that might be.
But being a person who loves surprises, I am open to anything. So if you could tell me something, any little thing about you, really, I'd love it.
Seriously anything. Like maybe what time you got up today, or your favorite snack food, or a book you like, or how you take your coffee, or perhaps even what color underwear you're wearing - anything at all, I'd love to know. You could argue that this really tells me nothing about you, but I would have to disagree.
Every choice says something. Even if I don't know precisely what. In all candor, I just like knowing things about people who visit.
Thanks for reading, and for seeing me through the ups and downs and arounds of the past year.
Big hugs to all!
