WordPress thanked their bloggers for everything they did on the platform in 2016, I saw. It was affirming, which is good if you enjoy ready validation. I have to conduct myself with a degree of decorum which is necessary for all intents and purposes. I don’t regret this at all.
Matthew matthew903.wordpress.com/2017/01/15 nominated me for a challenge, and while I am certainly late, I don’t mind posting something that is responsive. It’s a growing experience, all the more because of what WordPress let us all know, and that is that they are inclusive.
l First, 2016 in 3 words… Disheartening. Winding. Dire. Why do people like to characterize time with little descriptors like those? They are a bit hard to think of.
l Second, who are the people who most moved us in the year behind (2016)? I won’t name names, but I would offer up Ashtur-as, who is a bit imaginary and who accompanies me when I am out to count the steps I take. I’ll think a little about Zop, too, which is a nickname for someone I hurt by mistake.
l Third, where have I seen beauty in 2016? It’s typically the cemetery where I caretake the grounds. I’m part of the operations for the spot, and that’s the reason I have to observe a level of respectability which I feel genuinely reflects who I am.
l Best food, ha, maybe my parent’s dinner dessert of chocolate cherry frozen yogurt. I know I’m round.
l The event, fifth, that most affected my sense of consciousness about the world where I live (the one we’ve got) was Rogue One. Everybody seems to have a lot to say about it. I am preparing myself with reading material and the like before I even try to enter that universe mentally.
l The sixth avenue of inquiry, so to speak, is the finest purchase I made in 2016. I’m not a materialist, I’m part of a not-for-profit. I think this was the year I bought The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss. That was a good read that I took on a couple of times.
My three good intentions, as the questions go, are to keep up the blogging I’m doing and remaining aware of our website at http://www.maplelawncemetery.org and to aim for more tweeting, even after February 3. I want to get to a local branch of the public library in 2017 and I want to eat a St. Patrick’s Day milkshake again this year.
