The Clarity of Night's 4th Birthday!



On an August day, much like this one, the Clarity of Night was born four years ago.

I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted this blog to be. Readers were few, but as I made my way and filled more of this amazing space that blogging can be, friendships grew. I'd like to thank each one of you for what you've brought to me and to each person you have touched. You've made this a wonderful run. And I look forward to toasting you yet again next year.

As the sun reclines on many more days, look for my friend up there, the katydid. He and I will be here, settling in, to sing away the dark hours of the night.

Happy Birthday, CON!

And what a heckuva ride it's been!

Despite some growing pains and sleep deprivation, this 4 year old has added to our lives in countless ways.

Definitely an achievement to be proud of, Jason!

Cheers for the glorious 4 and for many more to come. I've found so many great friends through this wonderful place and learnt so many things too. I'd be totally lost in the blogging world without CON!

So many thanks for everything.

Yay!! Another great milestone to celebrate. :)

I like that katydid up there, too. I'm sure he was a tricky one to capture. But well worth it!

You and Aine, and CON, have added much to my life and inspired many more in this community. I can't think of a better legacy than to have that kind of impact on people around the world.

Congratulations, Jason! The fifth year will be the best yet. :)

You're ready to throw a tantrum with some deliberation!

Possibly, wear big boy pants!

Good on you.
