Sherry, at Edie Marie's Attic has given me a very sweet award. I happened to be drifting around reading my favorite blogs and there it was before she even had a chance to tell me. What a nice surprise. Thank you so much Sherry.

Now it is my turn to pass this award to 7 fellow bloggers.

But first, the rules:

1. Please put the logo on your blog.

2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.

3. You must nominate 7 fellow bloggers for this award.

4. Add links to the recipients.

5. Leave a comment so the recipients know they have received an award.


1. Lynne at Lynne's Little Corner Of The World

2. Willow at Willow's Cottage

3. Tristi at Tristi Pinkston - LDS Author

4. Barbara at The Clark Homestead

5. Shelley at Building A Log Cabin

There are so many I could nominate, but several are already nominated, and if you are not please consider yourself one of the Brilliant Ones!

(If you read this and didn't know till now that I have nominated you, it is because it is now 11:31 p.m. and I am too TIRED and will let you know in the morning.)

“To dream of skating on ice means
satisfaction with a current project.”
--Dictionary of Dreams

Amidst white groves
Inside a lilac tree
I gaze at airy flows across a frozen lake.

Like soaring birds
We are all of us, skating on ice.
Spanning dense curdling circuits
Dazzling as a diamond dream
Before the break.

Beneath the brightness, I see a shadow
And the semblance watches me.
A shrill remembrance,
The impervious stare of quartz:
A trade-off between tomorrow and the past.

The break below shatters a ruptured skyline.
Its path
Squalls out for meaning.
The meaning is the sea.
I seize the mirror and the likeness looks at me.

Beneath the brightness, I see a shadow
Afloat beneath a pond of ice.
Freezing up in time and space
I drift inside the memory of a winter’s whorl,
Headed to where I came from.

Violet Lady,

Thank you so much for the award. It is much appreciated.

Love the Kris Kristofferson, especially the Why Me? That is one of my favorite songs.

Now, I really need to do some catch up here on your blog. It's been a while since I visited.

Blessings for a great day.

Thanks so much for the award! I will try to post soon!

For some reason my cousin Myrna (Puddins Pics) keeps getting emails from you that you've commented on my blog. Strange?! Maybe you are clicking on her name or blog link my accident? Just wanted to let you know!

Thanks again for thinking of me!
