Once Upon a Time by Maria Fokas
In The Depths of Darkness, on October the 12th 2013, I decided to begin a journey to discover a world where I could create my own pathways. I had no specific expectations and no idea what I was getting myself into. My reason for creating a Blog was merely to give myself space to free my mind and connect with people who respect their passions. I did not know then that I would meet so many precious souls who made my journey worthwhile with their visits. So, this letter is for those who put aside a moment from their busy lives so as to take a look at what I had to say – and then left me gifts wrapped with genuine comments.
On this day I want to thank everyone who invited me into their world by following me. In a strange and sometimes random world, a kind word can go a long way; maybe life can become sweeter for those we listen, when we notice, and when we let them know that what they say can make a positive difference in our lives. I’ve smiled many a time this past year with beautiful poetry, breathtaking photographs, and stories from the hearts of those whom I’ve had the privilege of following.
This was a year which I can now look back on through the writings I published and recall the moments that made them possible, and I am grateful for that – I’d like to say thank you for making this experience engaging and unique by breathing life into my journey with your exquisite comments. You filled this Blog with your charm and made this journey better than I ever imagined it could be. I wish you and the ones you love the best this life has to offer.
