There seems to be a happy little “house elf” whirling around the “blogisphere” waving her magic wand around , all happy crazy, bestowing kind admiration on her bloggy friends out here in Cyberland. That little tinker. :0) Thanks for sharing the love Sarah! If you don’t already follow Diary of a House Elf, seriously, you should. Go check her out. She is witty, she is fun, she is creative and smart. She is Louise of Thelma and Louise! Sorry, inside joke. I love her and you will too.link~ http://diaryofahouseelf.wordpress.com/elf-bio/
SO, now, I get a turn to play with the magic wand ! This is trippy .. OH how I love trips. There are so many awesome and inspiring people I have met through this platform and want to pass them along to you if you haven’t already found them yourselves.
#1~ Professions for PEACE ~ Gina was one of the first people who I connected with , or actually she connected with me, here on WP. She is always so positive and lovely and kind. Actually it was her who first nominated me for this exact same award a while back! Now I would like to pay it back to her. Good people make the world go round and I am totally inspired by her and her writing. To boot, she is a horse girl too! link~ http://professionsforpeace.com/about/
#2~ Tedbook ~ Just his picture alone tells you so much. A writer guy drinking a cuppa joe while taking his picture on his laptop. I am 100% a visual person and this tiny thumbnail made me feel like he was someone I had already met before I “met” him here in Cyberland . Plus the fact he lives in Friday Harbour in the San Juan Islands where my parents sailed us over to every summer for like my whole life, makes it a weirdly comfortable meeting of sorts. I like it. I like him.I like his blog immensely, I like how he writes. Check him out, you will too! link~ http://tedstrutz.com/about/
#3~ Candybottoms ~ This chick makes me laugh. She is a mama of many small children and locks herself in the bathroom to get a break. STILL, they find her. I sooo, remember those days. She somehow manages to find humour in the everyday, which I LOVE because trust me people, some days it is hard, reaaallly hard. Most importantly however, she has just given life to another small beautiful human. That alone is inspiring. Her latest blog post had me in tears. I was so not expecting to read what she had to retell. I am so happy everything turned out for the best. Sheesh…. If you are a mama, you will get this blog, big time, and love it as well. link~ http://candybottoms.me/
#4~ Floras Table ~ This couple, a husband and wife team, plus a friend as well. she the foodie stylist girl and he the wine guy. I only just came across them recently. They are from Rome but I am thinking/guessing currently living in New York. They are sweethearts.I hear their Italian accents talking to me from their typed words, off the screen. Lovely, lovely lovely. Their blog makes me hungry and thirsty for the good life. link~ http://florastable.com/about/
5~ MikeBikesBaby ~ Here is an example of an extremely strong person fighting the good fight against cancer. So inspiring, so positive, so awesome. If you think you are having a bad day, be re inspired by an individual who kicks ass , big time!link~ http://immikecohen.wordpress.com/about/
#6~ Canadian Hiking Photography~ by Patrick Latter. His photography is wicked good, like, make you want to sign up for a photography course like yesterday~ good! Damn girl! He is Canadian and amongst other things he hiked the West Coast Trail, which makes him my hero b/c now I know for sure I really don’t need to do it. In a sorts I have “been there”, “done that” now just viewing his pics! Thanks for reminding me just how hard it really is Patrick! :0) Wowee! link~ http://hikingphoto.com/2012/09/04/west-coast-trail/
ok, whats next?
there are some rules… I hate rules, btw..
- Display the award logo on your blog.
- Link back to the person who nominated you.
- State 5 things about yourself.
- Pass the award on to 6 other bloggers and link to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by ping back.( uh ya… don’t ask me, wtf?, I say just pass it along my friend)
5 things about me~ hmmm. really?
1~ Roald Dahl is my favourite author starting when we had a student teacher in grade 5. She read us aloud the whole book ,front to back, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. I was and still am mesmerized by that golden wrapper. I could smell that chocolate and that freakin golden wrapper, all the while she was reading, still can in fact.The same way I could taste the peach in JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH.
2~ When I was like 6 they misdiagnosed me with dyslexia. I have in fact synthesesia. A weird neurological disorder where one cognitive pathway leads into another. For instance I can smell green or hear you smiling .. It’s weird, but I think it helps me to be a more creative person.
3~When I was also 6 I was also diagnosed as perhaps having leukemia. Gack! Apparently they were wrong! LOLOL!
4~I am a night owl. What time is it? 1:16 am. whatever.
5~ I am a proud mix of German/Swiss/Austrian,French. We put cheese on EVERYTHING!
finally, just have to put it out there that mostly I find bloggers to be an inspiring bunch of people. Its not about how many likes or follows we get. For me, is about just getting a little buzz or spark, or a good laugh I was not expecting, sometimes tears. A connection with like minded souls or completely different souls. Every body is just making their way I like to think. Just be yourself, because everyone else is taken. Now, this night owl must go to bed.
