I've never asked her how she found out my blog. She mailed one line and moments later another line asking to link. I said yes before she could change her mind.

That was two years ago.

Di has been a teacher for some time in her adventurous life, so patting the back comes naturally to her. When I first went to her blog, it was mainly an energetic blog-miner's space where you discovered terrific blogs curated from around the world. Then she added her photography to it, and since then, her blog celebrates her active, productive life in Europe. Cementing everything, she captures at regular intervals in elegant prose the deep essence of people near and far, young and old.

She's given me many pats on my back, so in a way, she's who keeps my blog going. Last fortnight she mentioned my blog twice on her page.

Thanks, Di.
