It seems like only yesterday I had a dream, to start a little blog to share my new paintings and thoughts on art and now here I am, a blogger. I have now had over 1000 hits on my blog, many of which I believe are human and not some web crawler or search engine. This means I have easily had some visitors and it is time to celebrate! I stand before you a magnificent shining example of journalistic integrity. I AM BLOGGER! I feel like I have so many people to thank, I want to thank my wife who stuck by me in the lean times, I want to thank my parents, this is all for you guys! Most of all I want to thank you, the audience, it's been a wild ride. Woo Hoo! Oh, and to Mr. Franklin my biology teacher who said I would never amount to anything, suck it, 1000 hits baby.
