Looking Back on 2022 with Heartfelt Thanks!

“You live life looking forward, you understand life looking backward.”

Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855; Danish Philosopher, theologican, and cultural critic who had a major impact on existentialism.)

DEAR READERS,

As we enter the last day of 2022, I can’t let the year slip away without seizing the opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Writing my weekly posts has anchored me during a year when I needed to be anchored. Knowing that you were out there reading my posts has strengthened me and uplifted me during a year when I needed to be strengthened and uplifted.

Looking back, I am surprised by the results! You might be, too. Let me share.

  1. A huge thank you to the captain of this ship. Your wit, wisdom and humor has been an absolute joy to read in what I’m sure many others would agree, has been a horrible year. A New Year’s cheer to you and the literary journeys 2023 will bring!

      • Dear Professor Kendrick! The stats tell a story of universal appeal and connectivity, souls gathered around a complex and intriguing thought or proposition. I am both impressed and drawn closer to the web of shared interest. And thank you for turning whimsical observation into a moment of community meaning. Yes. Thank you. Morgan
