“Beyond my anxiety, beyond this writing,
the Universe awaits, inexhaustible, inviting”
“Poem Written in a Copy of Beowulf” — Jorge Luis Borges
A year has passed since I began writing this blog and I wanted to mark the occasion with a few lines to thank all my visitors and followers.
Some of you have come across my blog by chance but have been kind enough to take an interest in my clumsy attempts at expressing some ideas in a language that although foreign to me, I love deeply. Others are just incredibly patient friends who have not just read this blog but liked it and provided comments and great suggestions to improve it.
Regardless of how you have arrived on these shores and whether or not you stayed for long, I want you all to know how much it has meant to me. It has become a wonderful shelter from the pressures and pains of my other life and helped me keep a magic fire alight. That fire has been made truly special by the friends who have gathered around it and their gifts: books, films, songs and other blogs are just a few of the treasures I have found thanks to you.
I hope that you have also enjoyed it and will visit this site again. In the meantime, I can only offer my sincerest gratitude and a promise to continue my search for an entry that will make it not entirely worthless. Let’s meet again soon!
“Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”
