Brillante Weblog

I am honored to have been given the Brillante Weblog from my wonderful friend Kelly!

Here are the rules of accepting the award (Please note: you can copy and paste these rules from my blog to yours). Also, if you don't want to accept the award (no time, no energy), just know that I thought of you and that you have a Brilliante Weblog!!

1) Put the logo on your blog.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on yours.
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

I nominate the following people:

Rick from Hamguin’s Hide-not for his provocative posts, including his new OFG series. Most of all, for his amazing support and friendship. I know he's been picked at least twice (once by Kelly) but I had to do it again here---no choice---really!

Chani, from Finding My Way, for being the Queen of Provocative Posts that make us think and feel.

Jessie, from Diary of a Self-Portrait, for leading the way by example, but also via life-changing projects like BE BRAVE.

Melba, from Be Alive Believe Be You, for being real on her blog. For having one of the most unusual blogs, a partially hand-written blog. For taking a risk with her new Creative in the Midst book and project.

Carmen, from Writing From Life, who has been through so much lately, but maintains energy and optimism on her blog.

Charles Eisenstein, from the new Ascent of Humanity blog, because even though he only has one post, it is brilliant, as is everything he writes. He is an original thinker and a wise counter-cultural voice that we all could heed. Charles, welcome to the blogosphere---I have the honor of giving you your very first blog award! How could I pass it up?

Claire, from Anna's World, for her courage in facing a difficult journey and sharing honestly with us about it.

You all seven are brilliant! Actually ALL of the 216 blogs I read are brilliant, imho, but here I'm narrowing it down to just seven...

Blessings to you seven, and if you want to accept without following the rules, I won't care one bit. I don't want you to ever look at an award gift and think "Oh, no! How will I find the time to do that!"

So, here you go, in peace, joy, and admiration!

Thanks for your kind comments, Olivia, and for this award.

I'm one of those who doesn't do these, but that doesn't for even a second mean I don't appreciate the kindnesses of others in offering them!

If I had to pick two people from whom this would mean the most to me, you and Kelly would be the ones! Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness! Typically, I don't pass them along for a variety of reasons (none of them related to time) .. but I am very grateful to you and will take that along with me.

And bringing attention to Charles Eisenstein.. yes, yes, yes! I hope he sees it! :)

Awards are a great feel good thing! because i admit one does need recognition for our humble efforts to live and enjoy life and also to know how much we are loved, yes?
Thank you Olivia!
And yes! there has been going too much in my life but i keep trying my best and to be honest about it.
Thank you for being so lovely and kind towards me. I wish we could be neighbors to talk and share a cup of tea or something, for now, let's stay in touch and close, yes???
Thank you again and again!
