Very Inspiring!

InspiringI am grateful to Gemini (January 18) and Ol’Big Jim (January 30) for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. I must say to be nominated twice in a month by two very talented friends must be more than I deserve… Gemini (@geminiswords) is indeed a source of inspiration for many of us, writing poetry in a genre where the internal soul matters so much: her posts are a pleasure to read, and I fully approve of Joseph‘s (@JMcNamara4) nominating Gemini – he is of course one of the few masters of the genre…

Ol’ Big Jim (@olbigjim) is a published author and a pillar of strength in supporting his rich and varied community. I owe to Jim – who is far more experienced than me in many respects – for introducing me to the enchanted world of blogging awards, and in so doing to a wealth of great writers and bloggers.

My obligations under the award’s rules are:

  • Display the award logo on your blog
  • Link back to the person who nominated you
  • State 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 15 bloggers for this award and link to them
  • Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

Seven things?

  1. This writer in learning is a slow reader
  2. I start editing, changing, fiddling as soon as anything new is written
  3. Sometimes I lose work as I forget to back up when writing non-stop
  4. Characters I create talk to me, awake or asleep, they are very obtrusive
  5. The “tale of intimacy and loss” is progressing in a very irregular manner, some weeks being very productive (and inspired!) and other times just a waste of effort
  6. The “creative” experiment so far consists of four blogs: Glass & Paper (writing and short fiction), Photos, The Magnum Opus, “politics” and travel, and more pictures.
  7. There is also a (not so) secret page for special stories…

The Protocol of Truth


« 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).
