Hope has two beautiful daughters; their names are anger and courage. Anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain as they are.

~ St. Augustine ~

Today I'm asking...why do I blog? Once upon a time, I thought I would use it to grow my business. Now I blog for discipline and practice. And I love the contact I have with you all.

What about you--why do you?

I love the quote as I have lived with Hope and her daughers for a while now. It can apply to each of us in different situations.

Why do I read your blog?..for the inspiration and insight and advice and the wisdom that you share with us.

Why do I not have a blog?..because I would rather just read yours!

Pretty much because I simply must.

I SO love this picture. Did you lay on your tummy for this one? ; )

I'm not sure why I blog...I feel in my heart it is a good creative outlet for me. I barely come up for air to socialize, so I know it's good for my soul. Blogging has brought me a few good blogging friendships and that, is just beautiful to me.
St. Augustine is love!

Wanda, your blog has been such an inspiration to me that I would feel bereft if you stopped. I am grateful you continued. I'm glad for the snippets of wisdom and personal experience you bring us each day, along with your delightful images.

Why do I blog? I blog to build the vision of a peaceful, just world. My one big rule for the Village of Ordinary is that everything a reader finds in the village exists or has existed somewhere in our world, because it is so important that the vision be possible today, right now.

We can live peaceably. We can live comfortably without violating Nature and each other. We can enjoy bounty while fulfilling our highest potential as artists, parents, friends, community builders.

Proving it, showing how and connecting with others of similar vision is why I blog. One of these days we will realize there are enough of us creating and build a better world that failure is impossible: We will have reached critical mass. We are very close.

I am thankful that you blog. It's like a daily meditation.

I'm glad you blog. I'm not sure why I do. It's hard to feel like I have much of anything to say, but somehow, I need to, want to and have a desire for this kind of connection with others. How else would I have ever "met" you? You make my days brighter so very often! I should tell you and others that more! Love to you!
