Five hundred of you have signed on as followers of my blog. It is such an amazing and wonderful gift to connect with so many of you form all over the world. I feel like I know some of you personally even though we have never met. Thank you for taking the time to read my poems, view my paintings, and enjoy my photography. Thank you also for commenting and expressing your views about what I post. I had no idea so many would be interested in what I have to say. I love you all.

This is a poem I wrote  that expresses how I feel about blogging with all of you!

Famous Only Among Friends

It’s nice to be famous only among friends

Among friends is all that counts

Famous enough for this lifetime

It avoids a lot of unwanted baggage

Never ending expectations and tabloid garbage

No tours to make no books to sign

Just appreciation and love and that’s just fine

I still remember where I come from

And I am always home when the day is done

No paparazzi, flash bulbs, or sensational news

Only my friends care about my views

Yes, being famous is really great

The rewards are never late

My appreciation has no end

As long as being famous is only among friends

Thank you my friends
