I got a gold star yesterday for the achievement of one hundred likes on StyleWrite. Now, for a child who went to school before “order marks” (black dots) and stars replaced the tamarind whip and big red ticks, this was well appreciated.
It may seem like a small accomplishment. But, in the words of the Chinese philosopher, Laozi: 千里之行，始於足下, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step (Wiktionary). Thus, I have taken that step. I have begun my journey. And, to my delight, I’ve found some willing to cheer me on along the way.
This gold star represents a hundred times that someone said “well done.” One hundred kudos. A hundred handshakes. One hundred thumbs up sign that had been clicked. That’s a hundred reasons to go on; A hundred steps closer to the finish line!
So, thank you, again, for your support- readers and followers of this blog; fellow writers who gave their nods of approval; FaceBook friends and other well-wishers. Thank you!

The way to the top, is to start at the beginning and keep climbing till you get there!
