2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,700 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Rambling Before Sleep

Signs Of Magic

The wind licks at the window

crisp on an early summers night

waning toward morning.

Dare to dream,

whispers the promise of sleep yet to come,

yet my fear lies in waking.

Waking to the dawn of yet another day

in which the character of me nods in agreement with the world,

with ears open for signs of magic.
