Yesterday's post was supposed to be quite different. I had planned a week or so ago to write something more celebratory and commemorative than the one that I did on the wedding. But none of us control time and circumstance. I wanted to write what I wrote yesterday so I did.
Then it struck me, today is kind of special too ...
While yesterday was my 1000th post, this is my 1001 post on Rolling Around in My Head (Nee Chewing The Fat). It astonishes me that the blog ever reached this age. Long time readers know my intention was to write a blog for only a year. Well that deadline came and went without missing more than a day or two.
So in honour of this moment in my blog's history, I'm going to ask you to do one of four things for me today:
One: I'd like to know if any of you have a favourite post from the archives. I know which posts get the most comments but I'm not sure that those are necessarily the ones that people like the best. So, please, let me know if one sticks out in your memory.
Two: If you are a regular reader but have never commented, I'd ask you to think about just saying hello today. I won't ask for another 1000 days so it won't be a drain on you.
Three: Just for fun try slipping either the phrase 'rolling around in my head' AND 'chewing the fat' into your conversation today ... just a fun little thing to help me commemorate this occasion.
Four: Register for my lecture on Friday here in Toronto and come say hi! I've met a lot of readers over the last couple of weeks, it's been great.
In return I promise to try and keep up the daily posts - I've come to rely on writing this blog to help me understand my life and understand where I'm going. I've appreciated all the wonderful things I've learned from your comments and emails. I'm privileged to have been allowed into so many lives.
So, back tomorrow with something that's rolling around in my head ... some thing we can chew the fat about. See, easy.
