Reblog Number One

The online bikram community has given me so much that I am not sure where I would be without it. I love it – i.e., all of you – desperately. Except when I come across a post I wish I had written.

    But maybe I will anyway. 🙂

    • I think it’s a truly loving and immediate way of letting someone know why and how their observations triggered more observations for you. (Plus you appeal to their ego which is a good way to make friends.) And also it means I can take a break from having original thoughts myself – very welcome!

      By the way, this is the first time I have reblogged but I asked permission first.

      Did you blog today?
