I've gotten a few beautiful awards recently and I want to pass them on to some really exceptional bloggers...
First, the I Heart Your Blog Award, from my friend Maithri (pronounced My3) over at The Soaring Impulse. I heart Maithri, so I'm happy he hearts my blog! Since he passed this on to 4 people, I'll do the same...
Sometimes Sophia is one of the blogs I visit first every day. She's a wonderful poet and a beautiful, funny person.
Live More Now is thoughtful and creative and smart... and she lives in Seattle, one of my favorite cities!
Stinking Billy... don't let the name fool you... Billy doesn't stink at all! He's lovely and a great big flirt and I'm tickled to a part of his little (but growing) bloggy harem!
Raw Cool... Michelle is full of energy (she runs 10 miles at a time!) and she always keeps it real.
Next is the Premios Dardo Award given to me by my sweet Heinous over at Irregularly Periodic Ruminations... this award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day. Cool, huh? I'm passing this one on to 4 people as well...
Life, Work, and Pleasure... if you're not reading my friend Z's blog yet, you're missing out. She is quite amazing... born in Slovakia, raised in Sweden, transplanted to North Carolina for 10 years, now living in Denmark! She is a scientist by trade but she has the heart and soul of an artist.
A Woman of No Importance... Fhina is one of the loveliest people I've had the pleasure to meet here in Blogland. I have just one thing to say about her blog. Read it!
Shut The Front Door!... Denise has an open mind and an open heart... she's someone you just know you'd love to live next door to!
Matter of Fact... Sherri is one of those wonderful people who gives me real hope for the whole world. We sit on opposite sides of the political and religious fences, but we keep finding out how alike we are... more than I ever thought possible... and it's a very good thing.
Last is the Biggest Heart Award, given by the lovely Fhina at A Woman of No Importance. I have to give this one to Maithri at The Soaring Impulse. Maithri is such a beautiful man, inside and out, and he truly has the biggest heart of anyone I've ever met. A doctor in Australia, he is also a poet and a musician... and he spends a lot of his time bringing attention to global issues that affect us all. His blog always touches me deeply and I try to repay him by making him laugh... it's a nice arrangement that seems to work for us!!
