I began blogging at Not Dark Yet on New Years Eve, 2009, which means I've been at this for five years now. Yesterday morning, this blog site reached the milestone of 100,000 pageviews. I don't know if that is good or bad or average, but it is nevertheless an opportunity to look back at what people have been viewing. Here are the top 20 most-viewed original posts:
- Southern Nights and Stereotypes
- Tibetan Sand Mandala: Precision and Prayer
- Dylan in China
- Every Grain of Sand
- How Pete Seeger Taught Me about Forgiveness
- Writing Haiku
- To Zarathustra: Poem for the Longest Night

Many thanks to all who have visited this blog. I hope you will continue to pay this site a visit as I continue to post essays and poetry, and as I share some of the things (including music, recipes, and books) that make the journey meaningful for me.
