I had to turn on comment moderation "after 5 days from post date" to cut off the later comments of spammers. That's worked great, but now I have some legitimate and heartfelt comments which I don't see for days or weeks, even. Like one from Susan left on the 12th of December... I read it today and was moved.
I wanted to take a moment, before I jump into a small painting (I think I can fit) to thank all of you who visit and comment. My family is my first audience, and you are the next. Both are important in different ways, and painting has more depth and meaning for all of you looking and remarking.
Happy New Year to all of you. Let's see what 2010 will be about.
