Bear Skin is One Year Old

On October 8th, 2014 the first post for Bear Skin was made. Fear and Exhilliaration expressed my trepidation starting a blog, beginning to put my thoughts out into the world to be read.

Since then, the blog has gathered over 110 followers, 150 Facebook fans and over 8300 hits from around the world. While it’s still small, writing this blog has given me great pleasure, arguably more pleasure for me than for the readers!

Nevertheless, the one year marker is a chance to pause and thank YOU for being a part of that.

Humans of New York – Iran

A favourite blog of mine is Humans of New York. This recent post reminded me of the universal love of stories, literature, and poetry and the capability of art to deepen, widen and enrich our lives.

“I’ve fallen in love with literature. I try to read for one or two hours every day. I only have one life to live. But in books I can live one thousand lives.” (Anzali, Iran)
