Just me, sharing thoughts, photos, quotes, adventures and daily life unless nobody reads it.
Then it's just me. Enjoy. Or not.

It really IS a worldwide web. Not that I ever doubted it but now I have proof. I recently installed a widget called NeoCounter that keeps track of the hits my blog gets, identifying the U. S. cities and various countries. I occasionally click on "Next Blog" at the top of my home page to randomly check out other blogs and it's fun to see where I might end up and what type of blog it is.
I have to admit I didn't think I was gettting that many hits myself because comments are rare but here is the list of countries I have had hits from just in the last couple of days: United Kingdom, Brazil, Norway, Philippines, France, Australia, India and our neighbor Canada. That doesn't count all the U.S. cities on the list, either.
About 18 mos. ago I wrote a post about a visit to see my Aunt Helen, a Maryknoll Missionary Sister who had lived and worked in many locations throughout the world. Imagine my amazement when I got a comment from a reader in Jamaica who is a Maryknoll missionary priest who had worked with my aunt in Bolivia!!!! He thanked me for sharing my story. I had goose bumps!! What a small world!
