WordPress has kindly sifted through all the stats for Bound for Belize in 2015 and come to the conclusion that if I were a painting in the Louvre, it would take three days for all of this year’s visitors to see it.
That’s kind of flattering. I think.
I’m not sure what sort of painting I would be or why the Louvre would ever be interested in showing it. Just the same, it is pretty cool to know that 75,000 times, people from 136 countries were interested in reading what I have written.
After a career of writing for newspapers and websites for a living, I can’t begin to tell you how god it feels to be read. Even by people who don’t like what I say.
So thank you.I’ll stick to my old — and mostly unkept — promise to write less more often . . . and add to that a promise to do my best to make sure that when you do stop by you won’t ever feel it has been a waste of your good time.
I’m still trying to understand this complicated, lovely creature Belize and always feel that the closer I get, the more elusive she becomes. That’s right. I am forever bound for Belize. Thanks for coming along.
Have a terrific 2016!
