daily bliss: NaBloPoMo, finis

image from Jim Nugent

I keep writing sentences to begin this blog entry, but they're all cliches, so away they go with a few strokes of my delete key...

I want to say that the month of June simultaneously flew and expanded, if that's even possible...

And it's partially chronicled here in my 33 June entries for NaBloPoMo, a wonderful exercise in mindfulness and discipline. An exercise that will likely spill over into the coming months as I've become accustomed to writing in this little text box at some point every day...

Whether brief entries written in under 10 minutes, posts co-written, or those longer, carefully crafted pieces that took more than two hours to write on quiet evenings and afternoons, I'm proud of them all.

In a moment of uncharacteristic scientificness, I catalogued said posts to catch the core of my blog. Some posts were difficult to categorize, and some categories clearly overlap:

Experience 12
Food 8
Reflection 6
Observation 2
Poetry 2
Miscellaneous 3

I like to think that all entries provide food for thought, a little window looking both inward and outward, and a brief moment of connection between writer, reader, and content. I (rhetor) thank you (audience) for helping me find and create meaning (purpose) on this little corner of the interwebs. Merci!


  1. The little scientist in me likes that you only have 3 posts recorded under misc. :P

    Great job!

  2. I have enjoyed your daily posts. Make me feel I'm with you even though we are a large body of water apart. I get very jealous of those yummy desserts....

    Love you!
