in order to excite 
an expansive emotion.  "

but yourself. "

the things we look at

What is the most important part of blogging?
Some folks 'lurk.
That's not as evil as it sounds.
They enjoy reading blogs.
They may never leave a comment;
but I know you're there!

There are some amazing bloggers to read,
food, travel, parenting, photos,
from all over the world
all the time.

The blogosphere sure has opened MY world!

For me it is an opportunity
to share: my ideas, writing,
observations of my Honolulu
in words, images & music.

The fulfillment & friendship
represented by every "hit" in Stats
is an important part
of my life.

So which comes first,
the post,
or the comments
that I make at other blogs?

I do like to have tomorrows post
set to go.

But if I neglect to see what YOU are doing
my day is not complete.

So hand in had they walk:
my post, my visits,
OUR comments back
and forth.

And to me that's GREAT!

Thanks for visiting today. 
                  YOUR comment matters!
                                                       warmly, cloudia

Sally said...

So hand in hand they walk...the blog post and the comments.

As pointed out depends on how you look at it.

As one who only comments...I need the blog post first.

I enjoy your posts, to contemplate, and make comments.

Always food for thought!

I liked your fish symbols on comments that I saw on others' blogs, so it made me want to visit your lovely blog.

That's a very important but often overlooked fact.

Teresa said...

I think that the comments and the blog posts happen simultaneously in the ether and gingerly alight...

Love the pictures today.

Blogging is a great opportunity to learn and grow and enjoy. I think it's important to create a place where people want to visit and not worry about the rest.

Thanks for being such a place!

Love the top picture Cloudia, it's amazing and is the apartment building in the second shot, your new abode?? I enjoy learning something new everyday which is a given by getting to know people all over the world, at times it feels like a big family, do you think so?

During busier times (like now) I have trouble keeping up with blog visits and comments. And I feel like I'm neglecting folks. I can relate to the day feeling incomplete without the visits. Beautiful photos as always, Cloudia.
