at the end of March, Michael Althouse, at:
did me the honor of naming "Imagine What I'm Leaving Out" a blog that makes him think. Imagine how terrific I feel! I'm not certain I merit it, but there is a mutual-admiration-society between us. I had said the same thing about Mike's writing, even before these awards began.
Receiving this award charges me with a task. I have to choose five blogs that make me think; the hardest thing I've been asked to do recently, because it is so difficult to limit it to five. I am aware that some I have chosen have already been awarded by someone else. I do not expect them to choose five more blogs (unless they want to). Here is my list (in no particular order):
1. Joared, at Along the Way:
2. Maya's Granny, at:
3. Carmi, at:
4. Minerva, at:
5. Mamacita, at:
6. Shephard, at:
7. Carol, at:
I am supposed to write a paragraph about each of the blogs I chose, but I will do it differently. First, let me say that there are other blogs that make me think too, but I must limit my list! Had anyone other than Mike given this award to me, he would definitely be on my list.
All of these writers not only make me think, but generally they do it with intelligence, a grasp of grammar and spelling, obvious wit and humor (whether broad or sly) and the ability to phrase things in ways that I could never imagine. They have all demonstrated a compassionate spirit as well.
The participation rules are simple:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme
Addenda: I am twice honored; tonight Sonia at Leaves of Grass also nominated me for the same award. Go and visit Sonia here:
Thank again, Sonia and Mike. I am grateful.
