But not this one – this one has me thinking.

This week -April 10th to be exact –

The Heart of Torch Lake will be one year old!

I’ve had so much fun crafting this blog & I’ve learned so much about the technology behind it. I’ve learned more about how I fit into the writing process & I’ve learned new things about myself.

I cannot find enough words to express the gratitude I feel toward  everyone who has read, kayaked, liked, sailed, shared, commented, hiked, facebooked, crafted, emailed, boated,  called, pinterested, laughed, cooked, swam, cried, followed, or in any other way encouraged me to play with this blog.

I’m sending you these photos with thanks & all possible love & gratitude!

“Tángeyoo” – Papua New Guinea


“Kiitoksia”  – Finnish


 “Mahalo” – Hawaiian


 “Qujanaq” – Greenlandic


“Nich’an tiox” – Guatemalan


Ahxéhee”  – Navajo


“Efharisto” – Greek


“Asante: – Swahili


& plain old English

Thank You!!!


I’m looking forward to more writing, some changes, & the hope that I’ll find you back here again!

Me…I’m off to do some celebrating!!!

It's always about the cake!


About Diane

a long time lover of all things aquatic...swimming, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling...if it involves water...I'm in. Add traveling, snowshoeing in the winter, gardening in the spring, & lots of fresh air & sunshine. Blend with cooking, crafting, great friends & my Border Collie Zack. Toss in some sweet beekeeping. Mix in a couple of great books, my camera, clean notebook paper, & a cool pen & you pretty much have a picture of me. My friends tell me I should also add..."once a teacher...always a teacher".

    Sorry I missed your Birthday! (I was on a bit of a “walkabout” myself). Hope it was wonderful and someone made you a birthday cake. Thanks for sharing your pics, your thoughts and your heart with those of us who have been lucky enough to find you here. Happy (late) BD. ; )
