"Happy First Month Birthday Water Blossoms..."

With all the excitement of a little kid on her birthday... I celebrate this day!
This was the one of last things I thought I would ever do.
Me?...A blog?...You've GOT to be kidding! ;)
Visiting you all, "watching from the outside in", was joy enough for me.
Drawing, painting, doodling, fiddling, class taking, journaling,
THAT is was I did...
...and life was Good!

Then a change happened.
It all started with "call out"
for participation in a Postcard Pen Pal Exchange.
"Why not try? What could possibly go wrong? "
Well, to my surprise, and utter delight,
everything went very, very, very right!
"Water Blossoms", a thought I once had, became a reality.
A blog was born...

Then,
I met YOU...and this time I really MET you...
up close and personal, right here in my own home.
Every morning you would be right there in my email.
You came from all corners of the world...
from the east to the west coast...
from across the rolling seas..
from big urban cities to the quiet open skys of the fens...
...from your world into mine.
You entered my life and decorated it with your individuality,
and your talent,
and your encouragement.

So,
on this "First Month Birthday" of "Water Blossoms",
I joyously celebrate!
I celebrate the vigor it has brought to my art
and,
most importantly,
I celebrate
YOU...
each and every one of you,
and
I thank you for the artistic energy you give me every day.

With appreciation and thanks,

Margaret :)

Oh my! Thank you! Danke! Gratias! Cheers! Merci! Xie! Xie! A thousand times over! :)

In real life we could celebrate with some chocolate truffles and champagne...or a "cuppa" and scones...or maybe even an icy cold Corona and nachos...hmmmmmm... that kinda makes me think of a possible drawing.... ;)
