If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

Winning Awards

Both Seeking Solace and post-doc have selected me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  I am thrilled and honored as I have been reading and loving their blogs since I first started this whole blogging business.

As part of the award, I need to list seven things about me.

  1. As a child I loved to climb.  I also loved small spaces.  I spent a lot of time cramming myself into the top shelves of the closets in our house.
  2. As an adult I've tried rock-climbing in a gym twice.  Both times I was filled with an irrational fear the minute I got off the ground.
  3. I hate to shop and prefer to do it, when I have to, online.  When I do go shopping in a store I make very quick decisions.
  4. I could drink coffee (decaffeinated these days) all day long.  Coffee and writing go hand-in-hand for me.
  5. I write and rewrite my To Do list constantly.
  6. The furthest I have traveled has been to South Africa.
  7. If I could live anywhere, it would be the Oregon coast.  

The second part of the award is to give it away to 7 other deserving bloggers.  This is the hard part, as I follow so many deserving blogs.  In no particular order they are:

  1. giddings
  2. Dr. Four Eyes
  3. jo(e)
  4. MFA Mama
  5. anastasia
  6. Ianqui
  7. Maggie May

Hi Brigindo,
Congratulations! Maggie's blog is a great and deserving choice, and I'll be happily checking out the others. I love the Oregon coast, though I've only been along there once. I'd love to go back. I read what PostDoc had to say, and it describes you and your blog perfectly: "filled with character and challenges and amazing grace."

Hey, that's cool. A well-deserved award. And yes, I remember opening closet doors and finding you tucked away on the top shelf--reading, usually.

Congrats! Your blog definitely deserves the award. I've enjoyed it so much. I'm pretty sure it has been two years now? Maybe even going on three. It has been part of my weekly "escape" and a wonderful read.
