Happy Anniversary to me!
Well, it's been a whole year (and a day) since I launched this blog, and...
I can't believe how quickly the time has flown!
My original intent had been to "march forth" on March 4th, and...
I was late.
As that seems to be the story of my life lately, it only makes sense that I should...
celebrate my 1st year anniversary late, as well.
In honor of the event, I'm posting an appropriate (time related) poem,
and a link to my very first blog entry at "Wander, Ponder, Poems & Pix".
Hope you enjoy wandering!

Grandfather stands sentry
at the foot of the stairs,
his comforting Westminster
chiming the quarter hours.
Anniversary clock in the hallway, running always a bit
behind, her sweet, clear Canterbury quartering off time.
Clock on the mantle rings a ding-dong doorbell tone she finds in-
trusive, sometimes – mostly during quiet, meditative moments.
Soft tripping Whittington, lazy, meandering Oxford,
Beethoven’s majestic 9th –
become almost haunting
in the somber, sleepless
minutes after midnight. She
sets them all to alternate. The goal:
to allow each its own short solo.
But their diverse tempos, and other
distractions, sometimes trample this meticulous
strategy. In those madly chiming moments, she concedes:
symphony or cacophony is mainly a matter of peace of mind
(or lack thereof).
And lastly, here's my link back to the beginning: Welcome! And what took you so long?
