Inspiration to Go

Well, well, well.  My thanks to Katherine at her blog Katherine Givens for nominating me for another award!  I am so thankful and so honoured that my words are making it into your homes, and so gratified by the attention my poetry is getting!  This makes the journey all that much sweeter for me, and I humbly thank all of you who take the time out of your busy schedules to read what I write!

Seven things about me:

1.  I have a thing about feet.  NO ONE is allowed to touch my feet under any circumstances – it makes me crazy.  Lord help me if I ever actually have a foot emergency…

2.  I am left-handed.

3.  I am gluten-intolerant.  If you are on a gluten-free diet because you think it’s cool, go eat a donut.  Right now.

4.  Writing is like therapy for me.

5.  I love the simple things in life – sunsets.  Chocolate.  Buttery popcorn.  Old books.  Drinking tea in my pajamas.  Reading old books while eating buttery popcorn and spilling tea on my pajamas…

6.  Friendship is iced coffee on a hot day – a refreshing pick-me-up!

7.  I am discovering that the joy is in the journey!

I have nominated so many blogs lately that my brain is turning to mush.  (Oops – does that count as fact number 8?)  Since I have discovered so many great ones lately, if I haven’t mentioned you yet, I’m sorry!  I either forgot about you in my temporary ADD  or – what was I saying??  🙂  It’ll come to me…

Here are some more great blogs to check out:

Words and Herbs – garden photos and amazing recipes for fascinating things from the botanical world!  Who knew you could preserve the outdoors in so many ways?

Sarah Jane Prosetry – lovely and complex poetry

Mind Retrofit7 – more beautiful poetry!

My Word Wall – an enchanting mix of garden, musings, and photos

Suzi Smart Photography – lovely photos of nature

Season’s Light – still more poetry!

My Wyoming Adventure – an interesting slice of western living!

The Right Mood – gorgeous haiku accompanying photos from Italy (I’m a sucker for Italy!)

I have enjoyed all of your blogs and these nominations are designed to share my appreciation of your work.  Congratulations to all of you!

  1. Wow! Thank you, Melody. I have never been nominated for anything before.

      Well, have fun with this then! It takes some time to go through your list and nominate other people, but I find that it is a great way to network and sometimes can boost your readership as well, as other people from other blogs where you are tagged have a chance to discover you! Lots of people don’t like awards because it can be time-consuming to nominate your own – so just watch for blogs with ‘no awards please’ posted on them – I got caught a few times with that one! 🙂

    Congratulations, Melody! Hey, you gave another fact: (I’m a sucker for Italy!)
    A sucker for Italy? Sigh, oh yes!
