2015 in review

This past year has been pretty “hit or miss” on this forum — mostly due to re-evaluating my priorities, dealing with “what is” (or was), and re-grouping as a result. (Gotta love LIFE!) Press on…

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog. Thank you, “helper monkeys”… even though I envision (quirky as I am) the infamous Wicked Witch of the West’s troops swooping off to capture Dorothy et al in the Wizard of Oz, lol! Sometimes “help” comes in the least likely forms.

However, I’m delighted to know that the majority of my notoriety came from Down Under (LOVED your comparison to the Sydney Opera House… here’s to a “sold out” crowd in 2015), but I also have heart-felt appreciation for everyone (from everywhere!) who took time to notice, read, and comment on this space.

I’m doin’ the best I can and I know (and love) that y’all are, too. Again, thanks! Okay, on to the rest of WP’s “report.” (Buying time until my “next” post, LOL!)

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

My Life Compared To Chicken Salad

‘Tis the last day of 2013, and while I considered doing a “best of” post (fun reads), I decided to sum up the year in Chicken Salad.

Many days were flavorful (think toasted pine nuts, scallions, red Anjou pears, and Bleu Cheese, with shredded roast chicken nestled on a heart of Romaine and drizzled with Balsamic vinaigrette), while others were the monochromatic amalgam of daily living — your basic “chicken, mayo, and onion” version. Both satisfied and both had their merits.

Then there were jewel-like days when life was flat-out a party.

Chicken Salad

(This was a “thrown together” salad with Honey-Dijon-Lemon-Mayo — sorry, no recipe…)

Some days are like that.

I’m also old enough to realize that not every day will be brilliant and not every day will be bland, but circumstances can’t prevent you from celebrating life… your life!

At 12:01 a.m., we’ll all be handed an empty plate. What will you fill it with?

And, which food best describes your year in review?

Enjoying chicken salad perspectives,

P.S. Happy New Year!!!
