Hundreth Post Milestone
I was looking at my total number of posts the other night and I realized that I had crossed the 100th post threshold. The milestone was crossed with my “Desert Treegrower” post. I guess I am in such a groove I didn’t even notice let alone mark the occasion until now. Better late than never.
In my follow up to “Desert Treegrower,” I posted a very similar scene entitled “Grow Roots.” The timing of the these posts strikes me as somewhat ironic. This blog has been a big part of my effort to “grow roots” and make an additional place for my ideas and my art. Day by day and sketch by sketch I have taken root and my roots have grown stronger. The vast internet has seemed a little less inhospitable to a lone artist.
I indulgently quoted myself in the post accompanying “Grow Roots” and I find those words echoing in my mind today as I reflect on that occassion: be free, create, and grow roots. It is a superb feeling to know that you have followed your own advice.
