The Digital Awakening Turns Seven

This blog turned seven on January 28 and it totally slipped my mind until two days later. I was busy with something else then and it is only today that I have some time to note this occasion. It never occured to me in 2003 that I would still be doing this today. I am glad that I discovered blogging. I was drifting aimlessly looking for a purpose in life. It was through blogging, or rather putting my thoughts in writing here, that I could piece together a map of what I would want to do with my life. So here I am, putting colours to the pictures as I live them out one by one. Most of them are chronicled in this blog, too. It has been seven fruitful years. Perhaps, now is a good time to piece together another picture to carry me through the next seven years. The old picture is almost fully coloured already.

  1. Congratulations Pete on passing thru’ the seven year mark.Yours is still one of my favourite blogs that I check on and read every now and then.
    There is that wholesomeness and human connectivity that makes it an interesting read.

    I remember the early years as you expressed your thoughts on blogging,the cameras that you used, the anguish at the passing of your mum,the trials and tribulations of learning to drive, the constant fight to stay healthy, your food recipes and food reviews,wheelchair accessibility issues,your trips overseas particularly korea ,the daily grind of living and the bright spot in your life,your marriage to Wuan.
