I love Cecile’s Writers!


 The gracious folks at Cecile’s Writers, Vanessa, Sofia, Cecile and Samir, have nominated your servant for One Lovely Blog Award! A big thank you to those talented writers and bloggers, but words fail me to reply with dignity to Samir’s shout-out: “just a shout out to express how awesome your blog is”!  I don’t know about that, he sez blushing, but I do know your blog is fresh as a morning spring, and an invite for more talented people to join in.

Knowing the routine, I will submit myself to this enjoyable task, with some writer’s license.

The Rules:

1.  Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog. I wish to thank all four of you for this opportunity, and invite my followers to visit your blog and contribute!

2.  List seven random things about yourself. I will be cheeky, and rather than talk about myself, most uninteresting subject, I will say a few words about some of my (fictional?) characters, and real heros!

3.  Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.

Seven random things:

  1. Julian is a kind of alter-ego, a geek on the other side of – erm… – thirty,  in love with his beautiful wife, and visited by ghosts from his past: there is a twist in his life, the point of discontinuity where virtual merges with “real”…
  2. Helena is the object of desire for the mysterious and cruel Mistress G: her story is spun elsewhere but her steps can be found in these pages…
  3. Rosa Luxemburg: she does not need introduction, suffice to say that she is to my mind one of the greatest women of modern times, intelligent, beautiful, with a courage that put to shame our age of cowardice…
  4. Paul is the owner of a boat named Arrakis, a story of love and high seas that is progressing in deep waters, somewhere in the Pacific.
  5. Yukio Mishima is an enigma, a talented writer who excoriated modernism, loathed the fashions of the age, and ultimately died for his principles.
  6. Susan may be my most controversial creation, a mother with a dark secret, and yet of such charm that one wonders… Susan is not in fact my character, but Julian’s, a way perhaps to distance myself from a tale of passion and forbidden fruits?
  7. The Dolomites: well they are everywhere in my writing and on my photo blog

  1. Oh, well deserved, so pleased for you. And I too love Cecile’s Writers – a bunch of very talented and fun individuals!
    I knew we were on the same wavelength: I too have Rosa Luxemburg as a heroine of mine (and Alexandra Kollontai, about whom so little is known nowadays, and who lived through such hard times), and did you know I used to translate Mishima at university? (I was secretly in love with him, despite everything I found out about his life. Probably I was in love with his writing.)

« Je ne plierai pas, je ne m’en irai pas en silence. Je ne me soumettrai pas. Je ne me retournerai pas. Je ne me conformerai pas. Je ne me coucherai pas. Je ne me tairai pas. Le courage, c’est de chercher la vérité et de la dire ; ce n’est pas subir la loi du mensonge triomphant » (Jean Jaurès).
