200th Posting

I’ve found it rather amusing to look online at some other ‘200th posting’ blog links, because most seem to be of the “Wow… amazing how time has passed by since I started last year!” variety. That’s certainly not my problem, since I started more than a dozen years ago — although all that time has passed by amazingly fast as well.

It took me almost seven years to reach the 100th posting, so you can see that I’m now speeding up….. since it’s only taken a little more than five years for the next hundred. Either my life has become a lot more interesting…. or I’m now getting to be more verbose & talkative as I get older; hopefully it’s more the former. And at this rate, I’ll be blogging every day…. sometime in the 2030’s, I guess.

But you’ve probably also noticed some changes over time – bigger pictures, more ‘non-work’ travel, and also more postings about things I just happen to find interesting. Luckily, I’m now at that stage of life where I can get away with such digressions and musings. My students simply cannot conceive of someone not on WeChat, & my coffee shop buddies smile when I still pay cash for my ‘da bei Americano’ (sometimes thinking I’m the last person in China still doing so!). Fortunately, they all humor me…. & I recognize that people reading this blog probably do so as well.

I know there will be even more changes over the next 100 postings…. & I can honestly say I’m looking forward to them! I’ve been incredibly fortunate in life…. & if you’re reading this, thanks for showing interest & for sharing it with me.

[And once again, a shout-out for Ms. Krissie Gatti, my web-master extraordinaire, who was there for the first one — & all subsequent postings too!]
