I've Been Blogging for a Year?

photo by the Pagan Sphinx

A photo to share with you.

A few people over at my photo blog, The Pagan's Eye, thought this might be a peace lily. Taken recently at Magic Wings, a local butterfly conservatory and garden.

Because I'm on vacation this week, it occurred to me that I'd started The Pagan Sphinx approximately a year ago. So scroll down I did and saw that my first post was on February 16. Safely after Valentine's Day. ;-) So I'm a bit late, as always. And as you may have guessed I'm not one for making a huge fanfare out of things. There will be no huge celebrations, no ticker tape parades and no cake. But I hope all week to add a nugget of specialness or two throughout.

So, please do come back and partake of whatever I dig up. Oh. WP and I will be going to New York City for three days and three nights. I can't ever contain myself before a trip to the city.! This a great time for us. It's no longer a joy to live in the country by the middle of February, it's our valentine to each other and it's also a celebration of the anniversary of our first coffee date five years ago. Who says life-time love can't go around twice?

    I have a lot to catch up in your blog and I didn't know that you have a photoblog.

  2. Homeyra!! It's so good to hear from you. I'm so glad you're well. At least hoping very much that you are.

    I was so blown away by the interview with Alain Badiou. I'm not sure I had the energy to comment about it. How would I have otherwise have had such an occasion? I'm so glad to know you and all the things you've introduced me to!

    All the love, my friend!

  6. Dear Gina
    I am glad that you took the time to listen to Badiou. Wonderful internet, we can have such a great company. When you have time, check Zizek too. Both very refreshing.

  10. Happy Birthday, Gurrrl! I'm so overwhelmed by what you add to The 'Sphere, and so proud to know you.

    And have a wonderful Valentine's Day stay in The City - I'd be jealous if I wasn't getting away soon as well!

    Much love and happiness to you, Gina.
