A big thank-you to readers from 165 countries

I came close this year to killing my blog and I’m glad I changed my mind. It is thanks to readers like you, who have visited Under the Banyan from 165 countries in 2012 (see map).


Writers can’t stop writing. That’s a simple fact. But when we know that someone — even just a single distant stranger — will read our words and perhaps devote a thought to them, we write harder and better, with more energy and passion.

So, I want to say a big thank-you to everyone who has visited Under the Banyan and has read or commented on my posts here.

I would also like to know some more about you, so please leave a comment here and tell me who you are, where you live, what you do and what you would like to see at Under the Banyan in the future.

I wish you a happy and peaceful 2013
