Two years ago I had this moment where I set what was for me an audacious goal. “I want to have 1,000 followers on Instagram in one year.” It almost hurt to say that goal out loud, as silly as that sounds. I just don’t think in terms of personal ambitions. But. I’m close. Is today the day? It’s funny, to think of setting a goal on something so arbitrary as the number of followers on a social media account as “success”. Or how about posting photos as “work”? But I sure enjoy this outlet, both for what I get to see and read and what I get the chance to share. Thank you to all who kept me in your feed, and to those who double-tap my photos, and most of all those of you take the time to lift my spirits with your sweet comments. (Especially those who are not bots.) This has been a really big part of my life these past two years.
