WordPress Notification …. a milestone!!

~~March 15, 2014~~

This is a milestone for me. I started blogging almost by chance. I didn’t have any experience. I had recently retired from a full time job. A very dear friend suggested that I write about the experiences that I’d had.

That’s how “It Is What It Is” was born. And, here I am, one year has gone by. Oh, my … how time flies.

It’s been a great year. I have learned a lot. I have made connections with wonderful, professional bloggers. Some have become great friends, mentors, counselors, helpers and chosen family. 

I have found a spot in a “Wolf Pack” because of blogging. 

Happy Anniversary!


You registered on WordPress.com 1 year ago!

Thanks for flying with us.

Keep up the good blogging!



This couldn’t have been possible without YOU …. the visitors, readers and followers!

Heartfelt thanks!! 



I now have my acceptance speech ready …. I would like to thank … 

Naw …. not really. 



“I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone “out there” who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is “eclectic” – a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I’m interested in news – reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse – the “wrongly” affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need.”

We ALL are ONE!!

    • TY dear Nancy!! Your words warm my heart. Interesting to know .,.. I didn’t know a thing! I started slowly and it’s lead me here.
      Along the way I found good, new friends that helped me.
      I feel that I learned more every day …. and it takes a life of its own. I love the discovery of new things to do as I learn them.
      I know there is so much more to learn and so much more you can do. I think I also follow what I see on other blogs.
      You will also learn.
