2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,700 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Went Home…After Quite a While

 

It had been quite a long while, since I took this trip…journey to my upcountry home…All that while, I had every reason as to why I didn’t want to go home…

The day came, 31st December, 2011, and the question ‘when did you lastly go home…?’ was thrown my way…by someone so dear…I went ahead with my ‘why not’ explanations…

My ‘reasons’ and ‘explanations’, valid and varied as they were, were carefully listened to…but then, for each of my ‘why not…’ there was a ‘why to…’ counter

By the end of that session, the ‘why to’ appeared to have won the ‘debate’ and there was kind of an ultimatum that I should go home, and with that I was convinced that I should go home…

It wasn’t to be ‘sometime in the near future’ but it was to be immediate…’tomorrow’ …which was to be New Year’s Day. Having made that decision, there were no more excuses or postponement to make…I was to go home

Yesterday New Year’s Day, was the day…after a wonderful service at Church, I was all to go …

I left the City in the afternoon for the journey I hadn’ t taken for a long while. While traveling I had mixed feelings, was I to feel excited that I was going home at last, or was it a guilty feeling that it had been quite a while since I did so…?

A little over two hours later, I was already within my home county, looking around, familiar were the surroundings…no much change if any…I looked forward to getting home…It was to be a surprise visit since I hadn’t told those at home I was to be going there…

Getting home unexpectedly, the surprise moment was surely such…surprise…! The time I had been away must have worked quite some changes on my physique to an extent that all kind of comments came my way….

The first evening and night of 2012 went well, giving way to a bright second day of the New Year…by the end of which I was to travel back…

It could have been only a night and less than a day that was there, but good thing is that I went home and it was much appreciated…For now, it’s till next time

Dear 2011…

 

Dear 2011,

You came,
Were welcomed
Stayed as long as you lasted
Now it’s goodbye, goodbye to you…
No ‘see you later…’
It’s a once and for all goodbye,
Never to see you again!

Though you are gone,
For a number of things,
You’ll surely be remembered…

2011…Down To The Last Day…

 

Time ticked on..
Seconds into Minutes,
Minutes into hours
Hours into days
Days to Weeks
Weeks to Months

Depending on one’s calendar‘s design,
Month after the other was ticked off
Calendar pages were turned over

Three sixty four (364) days after
It’s down to the last day
The 365th day…!!
Year 2011’s last day!

It’s Goodbye 2011!

Gift That’s Time…

 

Now is time…
Between now and then is time
Between then and now is time…

You depend on time…

It’s time you have:
To Invest
To Spend
To Waste
To Save
To Pass

It’s time you:
Look forward to…
Look back on…
Look around at…

The gift that’s time…
Given by creator of time…
Is yours to manage…
What you do with it…
Time will tell…

2011…Almost Gone…

 

A little over 48 hours, and 2012 we’ll usher, (as I post this)
Bidding 2011 bye, bye is quite in order…
While at it, pausing and reflecting on the year is second nature

Looking back on 2011,
It’s been quite a Year…
One that I’ll live to remember…

There have been:
Mountains to climb
Valleys to cross
Deserts to walk-through
Races to run
People to meet
Lots of things to do…

With;
Lessons to learn
Stories to make and tell
Memories to treasure…

It’s been quite a journey to take,
Now down to:
The last ‘foots’
The last lap
The last pages
The last days…

As we sign out 2011,
Are you ready for next Year?

Don’t Despair…

 

For some things, you plan and prepare…
Eagerly you wait, but they don’t occur…

For such, do not dismiss n’ despair…
God’s timing is an important factor…
