Dear Blogging Friends,
Today marks the 5th anniversary of All Things Ruffnerian, and my 416th posting. I hope you've enjoyed my subject matter, and my graphics as well.
We've covered a lot of territory together these past five years, haven't we?
I've especially enjoyed sharing the creation of my Pompeian Room with you. Your interest and encouragement in the project has brought me as much pleasure as the project itself. Indeed, you were a great part of the process.
I hope in your own lives you are surrounded by all those things that bring you joy and have meaning for you. After all, to have passion for something, whether it be a mighty idea or the tiniest of objects, is to be that much more alive.
This is my last posting. It's time for me to go in a different direction and to focus attention there.
I want to thank my readers and especially a dozen+ friends who have been consistent commentors and who have shared regularly of themselves, often outside of this blog. You know who you are because you're each on my blog list. I'll continue to visit your blogs and to comment from time to time, and so this will not be a good-bye, but only "adieu."
