Even random ‘likes’
or occasional awards;
my deep gratitude
A big heartfelt thank you to everyone following this blog as well as those who drop in and press the ‘like’ button every now and then 🙂 It has been an amazing experience to become part of a growing circle of very talented bloggers from around the world. Recently I’ve also had the honour of being presented with the One Lovely Blog and Beautiful Blogger awards from Jillian and Sahbinah respectively – two wonderful bloggers in their own right. Please have a look at their blogs – they both provide insightful and sometimes humorous takes on the world at large.
Despite my best intentions, however, I’ve finally realised that I have no idea how to respond to these awards in a truly meaningful way. One reason has been my insanely busy schedule recently – the only time I get to post anything longer than haiku these days is on Sundays… (when I have a lot other things to catch up on as well). So please accept my humble (and tardy) apologies. I also won’t be nominating others for these awards partly because a lot of the people already have them (as I mentioned earlier – it’s a very talented world I’ve been accepted into here on WordPress)…
Having said that, for those of you who missed the first award I received (Inspiring Blog) – you can find out some possibly interesting facts about me here. I would also like to add a few more lovely blogs to my list of those that I find beautiful and inspiring:
http://thebrinylass.wordpress.com/ a unique combination of amazing photography, ebullient wordplay and briny drops of wisdom, all set to the sound of rolling ocean waves
http://rosedeny.wordpress.com/ a Romanian poet who writes about passion and loss with deep sensitivity (despite the limitations of Google translation :))
http://vigilkumar.wordpress.com/ a poet with a very creative approach to words and images. These are the kinds of poems that must be read aloud!
http://haikuproject.wordpress.com/ the haiku here seem to spring from a deep well of the subconscious
http://triflings.wordpress.com/ delicate haiku poems that are deceptively profound
http://geektohighbrow.wordpress.com/ haiku from Australia that express a deep appreciation of the present moment, at any moment
and last but not least –
http://fayaoyagi.wordpress.com/ a blog that brings me back to earth, where I can recall the roots of haiku. Daily translations of Japanese haiku by both classical and modern masters.
Once again, many thanks – may the haiku be with you
