I've been blogging just three months--92 days, to be exact. So it's very cool that two other bloggers I admire gave me two different awards whilst toddler-me is still dropping cookie crumbs and falling on my rump in cyberspace.
Andrea Cremer of A Blurred History, who takes her readers on adventures to the British Library and Scotland and the jungle outside her door, has nominated me for the Humane Award. It's very vibrant and makes me feel like packing my travel bags.
Bish Denham at Random Thoughts nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger Award. It is lovely, just like her stories of growing up on a Caribbean island.
Kreativity requires spilling personal beans so here are tidbits from my cupboard: I sometimes paint watercolors of dreams. I once passed the legendary Orient Express while riding a train from Prague to Vienna to Venice. A moose came within a few feet of running me over in Yellowstone. I still have a photo I took of a bear just before it knocked my father's eyeglasses off (he was okay). I crave dark chocolate and dark stories. I think I've always been myopic because I like to look inward. I describe the way I see the world as Impressionistic--not realistic detail but wild swirls of color and emotion.
Now comes the part where I am supposed to nominate others. And here comes the part where I reveal one more thing about me. I break rules. I color outside the lines. I laugh for hours over Edward Gorey. I am hopelessly unable to nominate anybody and tell them what to do. So, I offer a free-for-all. If any blogger who visits me, which makes them totally award-worthy, would like to be recipient of one of these cool awards, you can put a comment on this post or email me. I adore all my blogging friends and want to spread the love.
