The 2013 Guest Blog Review: Intro

*walks stiffly onto stage from the right*

Good morning everyone.

Two years ago when the idea of a year end month long review series was mooted on my Twitter page, it was overwhelmingly accepted and everyone wanted to write.

For those who write in the series from year to year, it’s amazing how so much changes while so little changes. The answer to this seeming contradiction is that we grow. The same circumstances, the same strengths and weaknesses, but different attitudes and perspectives. Where there was discontent, there could be gratitude and vice versa. Where there were suicidal tendencies, there could be melancholic humour. Where there was self centered thinking, there could be generosity. Same person, different soul sounds.

For the month of December we will be reading what selected writers felt when they lived through 2013. Some accounts will be long, others will be jubilant, but hopefully all will be heartfelt. Some days we will have a noon day post only, while majority of the days will have an extra post at dusk. Some writers will be anonymous but everything you read here will be a true life  2013 story.

Welcome to the 2013 Guest Review on 19th Street.

    Sigh. It would have been nice to be part of this. Guess we have to settle for the next best thing: go on a shiper/voyeuristic/vicarious voyage, peering into the “soul sounds” (hehe) of the 19th street guest writers.

    Read a couple already and I am enlightened πŸ˜€

    Cheers. Here’s to a new year. To more changes, and to so little changes.
