I have been through a couple of stressful weeks. And as they wind down and with this opportunity to sit back and reflect, I realise there are many things for which I am grateful. Two are specific to this tiny part of blogosphere I occupy.
Firstly, I am humbled by the trust and faith you have in me by contributing, either financially or through promoting, the campaign set up for Ronovan. We live in a world where online scams do exist. It is easy and for some, a default setting, to be cynical and doubting. This is not a judgment, in fact negative thoughts have crossed my mind when I get approached for fundraising or petitions. Yet you have contributed and shared my posts about the campaign everywhere, in effect personally endorsing what I was doing. Your belief in the campaign warms my heart. Yes, I do know Ronovan has a huge amount of goodwill. 🙂 It is fantastic to see the support of friends. Thank you once again. The campaign has ended and I hope Ronovan receives the funds as soon as possible, though Indiegogo Life did say 15 business days!
The only way to make a man trustworthy is to trust him.
Secondly, though I was not there, the articles about the Bloggers Bash indicate to me the genuine-ness of the bloggers in this community. It’s not exactly a revelation though the articles certainly bring a sense of connection and belonging even for one like me, so very far away… but yet so near ;-). As Ali (of aliisaacstoryteller.com) said, “Bloggers are shy”, “What you see is what you get” and “Bloggers have something to say”. Honestly, this feels like home – bloggers and writers give pieces of themselves in their writing. So in some ways, we know each other, or at least a part of each other’s soul. 🙂
Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history. Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun, to make money and to express ourselves.
Stay wonderful. Trust the journey!
