THREE YEARS, 286 ENTRIES LATER

I had planned to bring you an unexpectedly dazzling post. It would have dangerously blown your socks (and quite possibly your undies) off. Then, in a strange yet progressively more regular victory of work over life, I had to slay the whole brilliant post. Why the hype? Well, it dawned on me awhile back that, Evuhleen was officially launched in May of 2008 and I started providing hardcore, woman-on-journal blogging action. So, yes, it’s my blogiversary!

In this aforesaid now-slain entry, I summed up the high points from the last three years. But I don't have the time to do all that again. Plus the procedure of going back and reading some of my own stuff was a little awkward. I wrote some dreadfully silly shit, people. It's remarkable you stuck with me as long as many of you have.

Regardless of how long you've been reading my humble little site, I thank you. You've put up with a lot. And I want you to know that, as invigorating and therapeutic as it’s been to put whatever it is I've written out there, the best part is the people I've met along the way.

Three years, in the grand scheme of things, doesn't seem all that long. Yet three years ago, I don't think I'd have been able to visualize life as it is today. I'm one lucky woman. Thanks for sharing the journey with me.


Kudos to Imcha Imchen, best friend and designer for creating the new header you see above. More about it in the upcoming posts.


There are some songs, which build and grow on you. And there are those that reach out and grab you on the first note. They start fast and morph from one movement to the next in a way that is intense, energetic, flowing, and unexpected. This amazing three minute track is one of the latter and I love the smooth vocals that Jamie Cullum features on this song titled, ‘Mind Trick’. No matter which way he’s swinging it’s all excellent.

may you and your keyboard continue to belt out the magic
and may the music continue to sing in your blood
and may the happiness envelope you like a warm blanket on a cold day.

-for another 3 years.

@Ku2: Its seems like I'll always read your blog. Please keep writing cos I love your take on things...
The header is very symbolic. Maybe when i have the time, i shall write a post about it. Thanks.
Cullum does have a big head. Guess, the photographer was re-he-he-ly good. :))

@Kro: I can't thank you enough for that. It was absolutely beautiful. :) Thank you Kro.

Three years is a huge thing. Most people give up after a year. You madam, have the passion and talent. Looking forward to more years shared together. :)

Hi Eveline,

Congratulations on your blog.
And the new header. :)
You didn't have to mention moi name.

I will look forward to listening to a new song each new day.

I still have the "Twenty Something" debut album of Jamie's tape we use listen way back! Hehe.

(Apologies for the delay on the comment. I had to keep myself away from commenting since I also wanted my share of an unexpected dazzle on my first ever visible comment. If not, probably after a really long time.Hehe.)

PS. I got a bigger head than Jamie.
