2007 Year in Review: First Sentences


Some blog memes are hard to resist. I’ve seen a lot of librarians doing this on their blogs and apparently it started in Western Australian at Ruminations. This is a list of the first sentences of the first post of each month of the year from Panorama of the Mountains:

January: “The blood of martyrs is the seed of the Church.”

February: Brigid of Kildare is the secondary patron saint of Ireland and the most prominent female saint of my ancestral land.

March: Who loves the USA?

April: Once again it’s time for me to post all the interesting articles, news, and opinion I’ve read in the past month regarding faith, religion, and spirituality for the month of March.

May: The other day while recovering from dental surgery I watched March of the Penguins (2005) the third in a string of recent big screen documentaries about birds along with Winged Migration (2001) and The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill (2005).

June: Today I’m putting up the links to two funny websites made up entirely of things that people just stumble upon.

July: Just wanted to give a shout out to my Canadian readership — should I happen to have one — on their day of national celebration.

August: …from the Anderson Bridge.

September: The first subway in the United States headed underground (or “off the earth” as newspaper headlines of the time exclaimed) 110 years ago right here in beautiful Boston, Massachusetts.

October: And so the Mets season has come to an end, sooner than expected, but somehow it was a long ways coming.

November: The Happiest Baby on the Block (2004) is a self-help book for new parents to help soothe fussy babies recommended to us by several of our fellow new parents.

December: A year ago today I began Panorama of the Mountains with my first post.

So it looks like a typical year filled with saints, religion news, politics and culture, stuff around Boston, movies, pandering to Canadians, the Mets, babies, and navel-gazing. Interestingly I’ve given up on the Religion News of the Month and Friday Sillies features and I made it through an entire liturgical year of saints so these types of posts are going to be less representative of Panorama of the Mountains in the future.

Anyhow, more navel-gazing year-in-review posts are due in the near future.
