500

20180616_171156

I suppose it is some sort of milestone – five hundred posts on Ebb Then Flood; heaps of my words and pictures at any rate.

I firmly believe in milestones –  markers of time and achievement – even if only I note them.

Today, however I thought I’d share the number that WordPress’s stats counter threw up.

As a number it’s all a bit arbitrary in terms of whether this thing is worthwhile.

You can be the judge of that.

But I do know that I am really glad I kicked this project off sixteen months ago, for so many reasons, not least in rekindling a long dormant creative sense and finding an anchor for the random thoughts that swirl in my head.

Nice to pause and mark a moment…

Lastly, if you have tuned in along the way, and maybe found something on your wavelength, I am truly grateful – thank you!

 

 

Ain’t No Saint

Portrait of a blogger – me, Andy L.

Almost a year into this blogging gig, and since I am always behind the lens for the pictures you see here, thought it time to move around the front and say hello.

This shot was taken last month on the harbour in the lovely Fife town of St. Andrews, with its famous ancient castle and abbey ruins, some of which can be seen in the background.

As the place is named for the patron saint of Scotland, my namesake, it seemed appropriate.

Not that I am any sort of saint, mind .This picture has a dark haloed effect, just in case   you get the wrong idea….
