Happy Anniversary MAX: 2 Years!


On the 24th of May 2007 a wonderful journey began, through the blogosphere, that has enriched me in indescribable ways.
It all started with In what consists the feminist cause nowadays? And its first commentator was the very first person I built a friendship with, here at Blogger: Amelia.

Amelia is a sweet young woman, whom (when we met) had recently arrived from Indonesia to Finland, and was still going through an adjustment process, but still supported baby MAX and encouraged it to go on – thank you so much, girl, you know you are in my heart always!

Then, Karen and Shan came along; then Choc Mint Girl, Sabina, the Oswegan, Gallardo, and others; but even though many of them have gone their way they should know that they are still on my thoughts, and I am grateful for their initial support.

Later in 2007 I met some amazing mates, and deepened some old acquaintances, that made me look forward to blogging every week and with whom I have superb conversations:

LS: my dear friend, you know you are the greatest verbal gladiator I have ever met; and you have rendered my Blogger Universe much more interesting. It is a true honour to cooperate with you on Graffiti, and to hammer (and be hammered by) you on our debates. Thank you, darling.

Alexys: my sista! I simply love you, girl: your intelligence, your love, your sense of humour, your laughter, your love for music, your respect for others and your humanity are simply the bomb. Thank you for your support and Love.

Mel: my man, I remember well how we met and boy, am I ever so glad we did *big smile*. We have come a long way: from Attitude to SlogBite (Sidebar: people, if you haven’t joined SB yet; join now). I love conversing with you, and I respect you a great deal, and you are my running-mate. Don’t forget that in 2012 we are taking the White House by a storm lol. Thank you for your support.

Anna: my darling friend, you are an amazing human being and you deserve all the blessings in the world. Thank you for our conversations, for making me laugh and for your friendship.

Peter: my mate from Downunder. You know I value our friendship a lot. I love learning things with you, your wisdom, your love for the family institution, your care. Thank you ever so much.

Lynda: the kindest friend. Our conversations are excellent and inspiring. Your aura transmits peace and I love your essence. Thank you so much for your friendship and support, darling.

Zhu: my French friend (or should I now say Canadian friend?). I adore Zhu’s open mind, free spirit and respect for human life. She has been supporting me for these past 2 years and I feel blessed for it. Merci infiniment, ma cherie.

Liza: such an adorable friend, whom I absolutely love. Thank you so much for your love, care and friendship.

Cidão, Juca, Adriana, Luma and Carla: my Brazilian friends. 4/5 have migrated to Etnias, but they were here practically from the start to read my articles in Portuguese, and we became good friends. Obrigada pela amizade, pessoal!

Bob: the Prince of the Astrostuff. I always look forward to hearing from you, and we share the appreciation for African rhythms (thanks for visualising my weekly musical videos). Thank you for your support, man.

Fernando and Hanna: these two amazing friends helped to spread the fruits of my intellect throughout the web and encouraged me to proceed with my writings and translations (they were kind enough to let me translate the intellectual delicatessen that is their literary work). Gracías, Proto...Grazie, caríssima!

Delirious: darling, I always look forward to hear your take on issues, and I appreciate your non-stop support: thank you.

Then, in 2008, I met Swu (whom I simply adore), Renny (my favourite Norwegian), Looney (from whom I learn a lot), Burcu (a dear friend): thank you for your thoughts and support.

This has been MAX’s entourage: a group of sublime friends and readers.
And for the most recent and future readers: thank you for gifting us with your presence here!

Before I leave (this post is getting huge now), I would like to thank and send my love to a group of people whose support has been paramount: Circulus Ciceronis and Dux Probus – I love you, guys!

And to get this party started I would like to share a cool song with you, by Bob Marley feat. Lauryn Hill, which I dedicate to my dearest Inspiration.

Happy Anniversary MAX!

  1. Happy Anniversary MAX - from your favourite Norway :-) (What an honour!)

    What a great start you had - even if a man, I consider myself a feminist too, as I think freedom and equality is important.

    It has been wonderful to follow you in almost two years and I love to read your interesting, open-minded and sometimes provocative or at least thoughtful posts.

    Keep up the good works! I wish you many, many years!

  4. Happy Anniversary Max!!! May you have a lot of success because you deserve it!
    You said that 4/5 migrated to Etnias, and I think I'm 1/5! Ops, my bad! I have so many blogs to visit and comment everyday, and I always forget some blogs. I'm very busy these days... Do you forgive me??? And moreover, I like to practise my very poor english!!
    Remember that you're one of my muses in the internet. ;o)

    Keep up the good work,girl!

  6. Hi! I saw your message on Twitter about the anniversary so I thought I better pop around here to see what I could see!

    Again, congratulations! You're an inspiration!

    Love the image, if only I could give you the real ones. Oh! well, the thought counts, I hope!

  7. Hi my Max!
    Knowing you is a philopshy! Yes this is absolutely true! One can learn a lot from you and i always admire what you think , what comes from your heart. And then you blend it with what comes from your mind and by the end create great posts for us.

    There'll be always someone who's following you from Istanbul!
    Happy happy happy anniversary Max!

    Love you!
    Burcu

    Congratulations on your 2 years. In actuality, My very first post was on May 6, 2007. I began my journey 18 days before you. Happy 2nd anniversary to me as well.

    BTW, I'm not kidding when I say "my muse"....you have been my inspiration for more than you know. Meeting you was probably the BEST think that came out of my blogging experience.

    CONGRATULATIONS again!

    THANKS for the song...LOVE it!!!

  12. Happy anniversary MAX!

    Maximus Gladiatrix you know the depth of my appreciation for your talent, intellect, friendship and genuine humanity…

    If only I knew what I was getting myself into when I asked for an article on women and men regarding love and respect….

    :)

    It is pleasure to collaborate with you by means of Graffiti…and more…

    I will here remember to not let others know that you are such a wonderfully sweet darling of a gal…you are formidable and tyrannical… (Did I get that right?)

    Thank you for your unflagging support…particularly at Life on the Blade…

  13. Hi Renny :D!

    "Happy Anniversary MAX - from your favourite Norway :-) (What an honour!)"

    Thank you, darling :D! The honour is all mine, believe me *bowing*!

    "What a great start you had - even if a man, I consider myself a feminist too, as I think freedom and equality is important."

    Amen to that, my friend! But you know, the feminist cause has lost sight of its objectives...that is why I have become a pro-femina (for the rights and dignity of women) - I have some issues with the feminists of today *nodding*.

    "It has been wonderful to follow you in almost two years and I love to read your interesting, open-minded and sometimes provocative or at least thoughtful posts."

    Aww, thanks :D! Well, I confess that my posts are provocative lol ;).

    "Keep up the good works! I wish you many, many years!"

    Thanks for the support, darling...and may we interact for many years :D!

    LOL no, I meant it not as a critique...it is my pleasure to have you here at MAX :D! Boy, it is impossible not to forgive you...but really, there is nothing to forgive *abraço*! Aaah, your English is not that poor...but, if you wish to practise it then this is the place for it :D!

  33. Hi Max Darling,

    Stunning photo. (I want that for my table.)

    Who knew that something seemingly innocent could warrant such kinship with like-minded souls? That's what blogging is all about. Another form of love without seeing a form in front of us, but feeling it form inside of us.

    It is evident that your love overflows from your heart and makes an appearance throughout your your blog and your life. That's a gift in itself. I love and admire your intellect, humor, heart, wit, music intelligence and the nuance of your soul called Max.

    I am the mirror. All those things you see in me are in you. I am touched and honored that we have converged in a once unknown place called the blogosphere.

    Blogging is something that will stay with us even after everything else is gone. It is a part of our consciousness, our soul's dance, our joy explosion.

    I don't think LS is a gladiator as much as an instigator. Besides he looks nothing like Russell Crowe or MC Hammer.

    My money is on you and Mel to win in 2012. You will be running on the cookie ticket. (Happy Anniversary to Mel too.)

    Happy Anniversary my darling and many more. I am lighting a candle and holding it high. May it reach your heart and fill it with warmth.

    Here's to many more years of happiness and anniversaries.

    Btw, what is Lauryn doing these days?

    Irie My Darling.

  34. Happy Anniversary Max, the pleasure's been all mine!!!!!!!

    2 Years, wow, has it been that long, doesn't time fly when you're having fun?

    Great Video Max. I love Lauryn Hill. Do you remember "Killing Me Softly with His Song"?(just had to go to youtube to watch it) She did a version of it that blew me away, Bob Marley isn't too shabby either, love his way and unique music style.

    Again congratulations on a fantastic couple years and I'm sure they'll be lots more to come.

  36. Hi Lady A :D!

    "Stunning photo. (I want that for my table.)"

    It is, isn't it? It's gorgeous...

    "Who knew that something seemingly innocent could warrant such kinship with like-minded souls? That's what blogging is all about. Another form of love without seeing a form in front of us, but feeling it form inside of us."

    Only God knew...that is why He made us meet ;D! Blogging embodies the spirit of mankind (or of what it should be like): the love for another human being despite its nationality, race, religion, age etc...
    Bloggers (with a pure spirit) are more successful at this than some non-bloggers...

    "It is evident that your love overflows from your heart and makes an appearance throughout your your blog and your life. That's a gift in itself. I love and admire your intellect, humor, heart, wit, music intelligence and the nuance of your soul called Max."

    Aww, that is so beautiful, Alexys: thank you *bowing*! Girl, I can feel it....my stomach lining is almost blushing...*trying to disguise it*...

    "I am the mirror. All those things you see in me are in you. I am touched and honored that we have converged in a once unknown place called the blogosphere."

    You are so kind...but I could also see that you see those things in me, because they are in you...it's a never-ending cycle :).

    "Blogging is something that will stay with us even after everything else is gone. It is a part of our consciousness, our soul's dance, our joy explosion."

    I think so too, darling. My God, you were inspired...this is beautiful :D!

    "I don't think LS is a gladiator as much as an instigator. Besides he looks nothing like Russell Crowe or MC Hammer."

    LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL MC Hammer? LOL LOL LOL...well, he is a good looking red ruffed lemur and some could say that he looks better than Russel Crowe...but we never know.
    Nevertheless, he is a gladiator (and a very good one too)...he instigates us here at the MAX and digladiates us in his blog lol.

    "My money is on you and Mel to win in 2012. You will be running on the cookie ticket. (Happy Anniversary to Mel too.)"

    Thanks, girl ^5! You know with your help (as our PR) we will spread cookies all over the world!

    "Happy Anniversary my darling and many more. I am lighting a candle and holding it high. May it reach your heart and fill it with warmth."

    Thank you, my dear friend :D! Thank you so much for your love and warmth, darling!!

    "Here's to many more years of happiness and anniversaries."

    Amen *toast*!

    "Btw, what is Lauryn doing these days?"

    Girl, I heard she went wild...but I do not believe it, I think she just grew tired of the show-business (however I read somewhere that she has been misguided by a man called Brother Anthony [if I remember well] one of those pseudo-religious leaders that caught her in a fragile time of her life and convinced her to quit [true...lie...who knows?]). She has been singing here in Europe (from what I've read); and she's been mothering kids (she's 5 now).
    After I read a couple of articles about her, I couldn't help it but to feel sorry for her...such a talent.

    Girl, thank you so much for sharing this anniversary with us :D!

    Irie, darling!

    You love Lauryn Hill too? Oh man...what do I keep saying? You and I have similar musical taste. Of course I remember "Killing me Softly"...I adore that song (both original and Lauryn' version) - it is mind blowing, you're right.
    Bob Marley was special, man...

    "You are so kind...but I could also see that you see those things in me, because they are in you...it's a never-ending cycle :)."

    That is sweet. Thank you. The cycle continues...

    "I think so too, darling. My God, you were inspired...this is beautiful :D!"

    I am inspired by love. Back when I had a cellphone (8 years ago) the message that flashed across the screen when I turned the phone on was "Be Inspired." Life is an inspiration in itself, love is the icing.

    "...well, he is a good looking red ruffed lemur and some could say that he looks better than Russel Crowe...but we never know."

    That's true. Maybe he can take on Russell in the arena.

    "Nevertheless, he is a gladiator (and a very good one too)...he instigates us here at the MAX and digladiates us in his blog lol."

    Also true.

    "Thanks, girl ^5! You know with your help (as our PR) we will spread cookies all over the world!"

    We will.

    "Thank you, my dear friend :D! Thank you so much for your love and warmth, darling!!"

    Thank you for the love and kindness.

    [Lauryn]

    I haven't heard anything since the early 2000's. She IS talented. I guess she will be busy with her kids. I read that she had her last baby and hadn't named it after 8 months. I wonder if she found one now? Anyway we can bless Lauryn and her children.

    To Many More Celebrations In Life Cheers.

  40. Hi Lady A,

    "So true. What we have is what everyone wants - love in it's purest form - and it does come through. Can't you feel it?"

    I can feel it *closing my eyes*...sublime.

    "LOL. I can see it now."

    LOL...I tried to hide it.

    "That is sweet. Thank you. The cycle continues..."

    You are welcome :)...for sure...

    "I am inspired by love. Back when I had a cellphone (8 years ago) the message that flashed across the screen when I turned the phone on was "Be Inspired." Life is an inspiration in itself, love is the icing."

    "Be Inspired"...I like that :D! "Life is an inspiration in itself, love is the icing" gorgeous!

    "That's true. Maybe he can take on Russell in the arena."

    LOL I think he can and he would...he fears nothing...Hmmm except me! lol

    "We will."

    I feel like a winner already *contemplating face*!

    "Thank you for the love and kindness."

    Don't mention it ^5.

    "[Lauryn] I haven't heard anything since the early 2000's. She IS talented. I guess she will be busy with her kids. I read that she had her last baby and hadn't named it after 8 months. I wonder if she found one now? Anyway we can bless Lauryn and her children."

    Oh yeah, she had her latest kid last year (and I also heard the baby had no name yet). I really hope so...otherwise how does she address the kid? "X, look at mommy, look at mommy!"...."X, it's time to eat, isn't it? Isn't it?"..."Zion leave X alone!"....can you imagine?
    Absolutely: May God bless her and her beautiful family :D!

    We Celebrate Life Everyday Cheers

  45. Max:

    What a nice commentary to celebrate your second birthday. I, for one, have enjoyed your company and our occasional jousting on a sticky issue. What? Us joust? You have always been a good sport, and I value your life.

    Happy trails to a dear friend...and, as the song goes...until we meet again.
