The Sacred Path

Journeys through the mist

Looking back and looking forward

2007 has been a great year for me and I hope the same is true for you. I became a blogger on March 17th of 2007, and it has been a joy. A big part of that joy has been the interchange with all those I’ve met through my blog, and in my explorations of the blogisphere. Many of those explorations have come about by following the links to the blogs of those who have left comments on my blog, and many others have come from my time volunteering in the forums. You help someone out with a problem and then go to their blog to see what they are doing. Sometimes what they blogging about isn’t quite your cup of tea, but the wonderful thing about the blogisphere is that there is community out there for everyone, no matter what their tastes or views.

I haven’t been posting about journeys of late since most of what I’m doing is personal work right now. Some of it may end up (in modified form) making it onto the blog.

From time to time we need to reevaluate where we are spending out time and I’ve decided to take a break from volunteering in the forums to spend time on other things. I’ll miss helping people out, but I think it is time to move on.

Some of my favorites haunts from this year:


  1. I’m thrilled to be on your list & appreciate your perspective. I know you have been of help to many. While I don’t always understand forum drama, I know you will do what feels most congruent.
    I will be pleased to read any journeying posts you write in 2008, or any about anything else–you are an interesting fellow! Blessings on your continued journeys; love and peace in the new year.

  2. Happy New Year, tsp.

  3. Happy New Year! I feel honoured to be on your list and among such great company. Though you’ll be missed from the forum, maybe some of us can help fill those shoes.

  4. Wishing you a Joyous New Year, Richard, and may you find multitudinous moments in 2008 that spur you to unabashedly celebrate this phenomenal and magical life with which we’ve been gifted ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. I value our friendship very highly Richard and I am deeply honoured to be included on your list and among those whom you call friend. I too will be stepping way from the forum and continuing the inner work I have begun in the coming year. And, as I look at your list up there I can see folks whose blogs I haven’t visited so I’ll be making the time to introduce myself to get to know those bloggers and their blogs in 2008.

    May 2008 be a wonderful blogging year for all of us. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. It’s been a joy to have you working beside me on the forum. The knowledge base and skills you have shared with the community are outstanding. You have helped so many people and done so with grace and good humor for many hours. I appreciate your contribution so much Rich – you ROCK!

  7. Richard.. I am honored and humbled to be on your list!
    And with the prior comments I feel that I am in such wonderful company.. This is MY present!! Thank you!!
    AND I will miss knowing that you and timethief will be there to jump in and help out when I go brain-dead on how-to/blogging topics!!

    As with all of us.. Listen deeply. Respond and trust. Then change as needed!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Happy New Year!

  8. Terraflora,

    If you run into problems, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’ll always be there to help out a friend.
