The WordPress.com stats-helper-monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog, Notes Along the Path. It reminds me how much I have to be grateful for–especially the wonderful WordPress-blogging buddies I’ve made, like Michael Brine, Sven Eberlein and Kim P. Thank you so much for opening your hearts and sharing a wee bit of your lives with me. You are an inspiration to all who read you. And to the friends I don’t yet know, who stop by to read once in a while, thank you.
The Dalai Lama’s Daily Prayer was the most viewed post on my blog in 2012. Just a little hard on my ego–the funny part is, I posted it because I think it’s the most beautiful daily prayer I’ve ever read. Turned out the Dalai Lama blessed me with more visitors! If you haven’t read his prayer, please do. You’ll be calmer for it.
And thanks to Thomas O. Mills, whose piece, Why the Elders Talk, brought 286 visitors, in one day, to my blog. Tom’s other posts shared here are interesting and moving. Speaking of moving posts, my thanks to the 11:11 Progress Group for the beautiful, thoughtful and encouraging posts they shared here in 2012. And my special thanks to Blogspot blogger Mike Hopkins for commenting on so many of the posts at Notes. Your kindness is appreciated. :)
My warmest wishes and blessings for you and your loved ones, and for our world, too, in the coming new year, 2013.
