In my one-thousandth post
, I thanked vroom
for setting up the Monestary.
This time, I look back at the variety of interactions I've had in the past year
with you-all. I've laughed, chuckled, fumed, flamed, puzzled in confusion, and nodded in wonder: just about every emotion under the sun.
I've had a chance to show off. I've learned a lot about things I could never have guessed.
I've helped some people. I've made a few people angry at me.
And I keep coming back. There's something about being part of a community,
and this community in particular, that I cherish and protect. And it's you.
So thank you, all of you, for the contribution you make to me. I'm honored.
