>It’s My 2nd Blogoversary!


Tea Party by Stablercake on Etsy.com

Tea and Honey Bread is 2 years old, I’m farklempt! Rubs face in disbelief and smiles awkwardly. 400+ posts, 135 public followers, quality relationships, a voice; uncovered, recovered, newly discovered; empathy, consciousness, awareness, diverse readership, and a sweet enough for me, slice of virtual world acceptance. Did you know I blogged for a year without a single comment?

This may seem inwardly insignificant but, every time I sit [here] to share the contents of the space between your reality and mine, I’m faced with a decision; to love it or lose it. To love the anxiety, “Will they hear me, understand me, accept me, agree?” To love and embrace the challenge to incite a thought, or a riot. To respect the greatest caveat:

The single biggest problem in communication, is the illusion that it has taken place.”

-George Bernard Shaw

Or, sacrifice my freedom; my voice, my power, my gift to the intrinsic fears of a buck-toothed girl, her imaginary friends, a cat and a dog- in a tiny apartment kitchen in Western, Queens. (This concept is going somewhere some day, I promise.)

Tea and Honey Bread is in many ways a gathering of friends, of fresh minds; an exchange of new ideals and ideas; like college but with less sex, better beer and more guilt. Winks.

Thanks all of you, for contributing to this work in progress; for being an ear and/or echo to my voice, for being good friends. If you’re new here, introduce yourself we’re an inviting bunch. Let’s have a fabulous next 365 days, shall we?

Peace and gratitude,

    >Congratulations, friend. While I love your ramblings about your blog, it is special to me simply because it brought us back from the grave.
    Keep singing to my soul with the poetic justice you call Tea and Honey Bread. I love you and look forward to reading another 365. As I said on FB, your blog has become my morning paper (or evening). I don't post much, but rest assured, I read every day. Much props, peace you awesome wordsmith!

    You are without a doubt, one of my faves. You'd be in the noteworthy section of my blogroll if it weren't for Etsy. Maybe I should rethink my categories, eh?

    So glad you started blogging and kept at it until someone finally commented!!!

    Keep 'em coming…
