Gratitude...

This will mark my 2,000th post on this blog. What an amazing ride so far! I don't think that I could have come all this way without the support of those that frequent this tiny corner of cyberspace that I call my own. I feel truly blessed to be surrounded by such a warm, caring and encouraging creative community. It is my honor and privilege to be able to share my world with these visitors who come from all across the globe.

I wanted to take this special milestone to acknowledge just how grateful I am to everyone who has dropped by, left a comment, sent an email, or has passed the word along about my blog. Thank you for linking, syncing and subscribing. Thank you for reading, dreaming, and supporting. I especially want to thank everyone who has helped me in my recent skirmish with cancer and my recovery. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! For everyone who has generously donated their time, talents, and money... I applaud you and commend you. You are my heroes. I can't begin to say how much this means to me. Thank you!

When I started this journey, I didn't realize how important my blog would become to me. It has become so much more than anything I could have ever imagined. I feel as though it has helped me grow and understand myself all the better, to create community, and to define who I am as an artist and a person.

It hasn't always been easy. As much as my blog has chronicled my successes, triumphs and highs... it has also noted my struggles, my losses, and my miserable lows. So, I appreciate everyone who still continues to come, to weather the rocky as well as bask in all the good.

On this 2,000th post, I say, "Thank you!"

The thank you should go to you for inspiring us and being such a good friend. The blog-o-universe would not be the same without you. (Funny enough - I just wrote my 200th post - just a zero missing :))

What a milestone! Congratulations, Andrew. I haven't been here long but I must say that if you've weathered all the rocky times with the courage and grace that you did w/ the cancer, it's not surprising you have all the loyal readers you do. We can all learn and grow along with you. So thank you for sharing it ALL. --SallyA
