On 8 February 2006 I started blogging; today is the tenth anniversary of Spo-Reflections.
My first entry: The Journey Begins.
My thoughts on the day is summarized in one word:
Every year on this day on this day I say the same things really. I’ve often wondered what on earth is there left to write. Somehow I keep typing, the words keep flowing, and lo! it is a decade later. I hope my style and content have improved with time. I like to think I have become an amateur ‘man of letters’, for which I am most grateful.
More miraculous are the people who drop by to read my scribbles. I so appreciate Spo-fans and your comments. Every writer wants an audience and I have been blessed to have such an assortment. Over the decade I have encountered fabulous and foudroyant men and women, old and young, gay and strait, and far and wide. Many of you have become my friends, which I would not exchange for anything. I have lost some through death; the loss is a true sorrow.

Here are a few of which I am quite proud:
I think my all-time favorite entry is “Noteworthy Kisses”. It leaps to my mind whenever I wonder what entry is my fondest.
Finally, to celebrate the day here is the Spo-Shirt lottery:
Thank you for being part of the Journey. I wonder what the next decade will reveal. Who can say. Come along with me. Along the way may we find happiness in a nice hot cup of tea (no rubbish) or with a small chocolate cone or a snort, a lovely roll down a grass hill, and may all the rats be the finest from Tewkesbury.
The Board of Directors Here at Spo-Reflections approves of this entry.
