5 Year Anniversary

Thursday was the five year anniversary of first my blog post! 

I hope in some small way I have challenged you to escape. The only way I ever made it past my front door was to challenge myself.  I told myself: You can ride around the block. You can attend a conference. You can plead with a fashion photographer to take your portrait. You can go and have dinner at a restaurant. Still - Every ESCAPE is an adventure. 

After each of my early escapes I always wonder why was as I so scared; why did I wait so long? 

As I approach 2,000,000 blog views and almost 2,000 post over the five years,  there are days I wonder why continue?  I love doing the research, and have fun sharing other's successes. Also, I will continue to address hypocrisy, prejudice and political dereliction when ever I see it.     

All I ask back is the occasional comment.  Please do not comment just to agree, although that would be nice occasionally but write to disagree and tell me and others why you think I am wrong. I have been on the wrong side of issues before and need to be call out when that happens.  

Thank you being a loyal reader and let us see what the next year brings. Wow, has this year has been been a doozy.




  1. I look foward to reading your posts in the coming year .

    Morning coffee and RHONDAS ESCAPE, then off to FEMULATE, HANNAH McKnight.
    Start another day of retirement...

  4. Although I can be very disagreeable at times (so I'm told), I've found very little with which I disagree in your posts over the years. In many ways, we are alike; in just as many we are not. That doesn't make things right, nor does it make anything wrong. This doesn't preclude an occasional smart-ass remark from me, either, but it would always be done with my tongue firmly implanted in my cheek. :d

    Rhonda, you are the perfect example of my philosophy of doing extraordinary things until they seem ordinary - which is all so extraordinary in itself. That may be a long version of "escape," I guess.

    Oh, and I'm jealous of your hair (as negative a comment as I can come up with now).

    Congrats on five years!!!
