Versatile, Sunshine and Beauty…

This undeserving blogger received three awards last week! I am still in a state of (mild) shock… Firstly, from my dear friend The Curtain Raiser “because this blog is always interesting and deserves both the Sunshine Award and Versatile Blogger Award.” What is there to say? A big thank you, and wishing to see more of the curtain raised!

I will answer some questions in a few lines, but for now I wish to forward to deserving nominees as follows (the choice of awards is not entirely arbitrary!):

The Versatile Blogger:

@GillianColbert whose blog at is mischievously (sometimes) and interestingly (always) versatile…

@LouiseJHastings for Wings Over Waters, a festival of poetry, prose, music and beautiful photography…

@moondustwriter1 for her Writer’s Blog, an exquisite blend of pictures and poems: an art gallery…

@Angela_Goff for her delightful flash-fiction blog Anonymous Legacy

@MarinaSofia8 for Finding Time To Write, the place I go to when I wish to feel at home…

Sunshine Award:

@KD_Rush for The Rush Room, a model writer’s blog whose excellence this blogger has no hope of ever achieving!

@jtvancouver, my wonderful Muse, for Going for Coffee, a place of beauty, inspiration and superior writing…

@TameriEtherton, who I think has not yet collected this one… for her very professional and occasionally spooky writer’s blog A Cup of Tea and Sorcery

@DirtyLittleW, whose adventures this blogger follows with interest and often anxiety, for her very clean Seductive Secrets

@natzers, for Deeply Shallow, a thoughtful and always warm blog by another Pinterest devotee

@damyantig, for Amlokiblogs, all about Writing about Writing, a professional writer’s blog

@SunnyGirlLori, a francophile blogger and writer, for Spinning in the Teacups, of wich we want more!

Now, my dear friend the great @KD_Rush honoured me with the Beautiful Blogger Award, and I am not sure I will ever deserve this award. Still I wish to thank you KD, you are a source of inspiration and moral strength to us all.

I know that this is in breach of the Award’s rules, but I will be minimalist in forwarding this award to a very special blogger and friend. I hope that this is not being mean, but given what precedes I wish to be, perhaps, exclusive in this occasion, and for now. I will forward to six other nominees in a later post, promised.

So I wish to nominate for Beautiful Blogger my friend and fellow bilingual writer Quirina, @denfemte, for delighting us with The Mind’s Sky – Der Himmel des Geistes – a work of irrepressible beauty…

I know I have also to answer some questions, but I do not wish to be tedious… So I will limit myself to 7 facts, hopefully meeting the requirements of all three awards.

  1. Best achievement ever: keeping Gorgeous happy and cheerful (have entertainment value, will travel)
  2. WIP now: The Page Revisited, short excerpts in these columns, more to come…
  3. Best film watched this year: Prometheus
  4. Best book read this year (so far): Snow Crash
  5. Studying: history of European Union
  6. Training: gym and cycling
  7. Vacation: to the Italian Tirol

  1. Thank you my friend. Sometimes words are simply inadequate in comparison to emotion. Bless you!

    The awards you have are not only deserving, they are a reflection of the passion and quality of their recipient. Write on brother!


  2. Congratulations on all the fab awards! Thanks for passing the Sunshine Award to me, you’re so sweet!

    My husband would totally agree with you on the best movie of the year. I’m too scared to see it ~ even the trailers freak me out so bad I want to hide under the bed. Yep, I’m that wimpy when it comes to movies.

    I love your blog and look forward to reading more!
