I have to admit that I was quite surprised to receive not one, but two Versatile Blogger Award nominations this month! It was truly not something I expected in the infancy of my blog, and they have come from two bloggers whom I truly respect, therefore I am so deeply honoured to accept the nominations!
My first nomination came from Who Could Know Then, I thoroughly enjoy the beautifully melancholic poetry describing life and love with such a passionate intensity found in each post. His blog is well worth a read! Thank you so very much for this honour!
My second nomination came from Aimee at sixwordsblog. I was drawn immediately to the cathartic approach she has taken to her blog and have been deeply moved by her raw emotion and honesty as she deals with the suicide of her husband. Please do stop by and check her out, we can all benefit from a glimpse into this deeply misunderstood world. Thank you so much Aimee, not only for the nomination, but also for sharing your journey with us.
2. Tell 7 things about yourself:
i) I am really not very good at this sort of thing, I am horrible with taking compliments and have a tremendous amount of difficulty talking about myself.
ii) I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, but the past few years I have suffered from a severe case of writer’s block, I am just now finding my words again through this blog and my new approach to my journey through life.
iii) I love photography, I am as driven by this passion as much as I am by writing; all the images you will find attached to my writing are mine.
iv) I am a very proud mother and have learned that there is much truth and wisdom to be found in becoming a parent, as well as along the path which unfolds when this honour is bestowed upon you. My child is truly my world.
v) I prefer solitude to being surrounded by copious amounts of people.
vi) I love nature and find myself truly energized and inspired by her beauty and bounty, therefore I have chosen to live, basically, in the middle of nowhere, surrounded solely by the trees, the Earth and the sky in my cozy little abode.
vii) As an extension of my previous factoid, spiritually, I follow an eclectic pagan path and have from a very young age. As a child, I knew a young Native woman who shared with me her ancestral beliefs and introduced me to the Spirits of the trees and sky…she was not in my life for very long, but she helped guide me onto the path I have walked ever since.
