July 4 was my one year blogging anniversary and what an adventure it has been. I remember my very first comment from Mighty Morgan and what a thrill it was, first it made me think "wow, someone is actually reading my stuff", but it also made me think , "crap someone is actually reading my stuff", never counted on that.
All I ever wanted to do with this blog is somehow try to put into words the feelings I have when I'm under the stars and how, if you just look up you too can enjoy what is so freely given to us, but how can I put into words, feelings I don't understand. Enter pictures, after all a picture says a thousand words, less words for me to write, cool.
One thing I didn't count on was the relationships I would make along the way, different people all with their own passions and ideas on how to make the blogging world a little more interesting and fun and how they communicated them to me through their poetry, writings and images, and I thank you all for that, for I am now the learner and not the learnee, no wait... I am now the learnee and not th....., I am the grasshopper.....no,......I am.....I was.... never mind, you get my drift, I'm getting more out of this experience then I ever thought possible.
People it's been a blast bringing you the most current happenings in the night sky through my imaging this past year, well worth spending countless hours under dark skies and on distant roads, and bonus I have gained some interesting experiences, most of them will never be talked of further, but filed away under "YIKES" if my wife only knew, she'd never let me out to play again. I'll leave you now with a clip I put together of some of the Canada Day fireworks we had here in Saskatoon, thought it would be fitting for my Anniversary.
