January 18- Excellence Award!!!

Dear January,

I am just retrieving a gift, very kindly bestowed to me by Erika Kind, inspiring author and blogger: (https://erikakind.wordpress.com/2014/12/05/excellent-award/).

I have been extremely grateful for this nomination, but was thinking that it involved answering questions, and since I was busy with both important and useless errands, I was procrastinating. Could it be that I felt overwhelmed and not worthy enough of an award that is talking of “excellence”? Excellence seems like a cousin to perfection. And even if it is important to accept praise and distribute it, there is a critical non-loving side hiding somewhere, smirking: “Do you consider yourself excellent April?

Ok shadow self, what is your problem if I do? Go get some “galette des rois” (french cake for the Epiphany, delicious by the way), and relax a little bit.

So Erika, thank you, not only for this nomination, but especially because you has been reading this blog and for all your insightful comments!

Here are the rules once accepting the award:

1) The nominee shall display the respective logo on her/his blog.
(Done, this is an easy one 🙂 )

2)  Link to the blogger that has nominated her/him.
(Ok done also).

2) The nominee shall nominate ten (10) bloggers she/he admires, by linking to their blogs and informing them about the nomination. (This is always more tricky because there are many blogs I admire, it is difficult to choose).

Among the blogs that I admire with the order that they come to my mind. Among these blogs you can find artists, thinkers, educators, inspiring authors. I love them all!

  1. Thank you. I am humbled. I think I only do what any normal person would who is creative. Unfortunately I am less than savvy when it comes to the tech of copy and pasting any photo or illustrations. While that may be easy for some it is not for me.

    I generally don’t do awards. But I always do link to the sites that inspire particular pieces. I hope that is enough. I would not be able to choose just ten, and some like myself would like to remain award-free.

    Continued success in the world and the blogsphere – or ethernet-scape.
    Now we just need to come up with a new word for biographic-log.
    Other than…BLOG.

  2. Dear April, you made my day! I am glad for you and I also told my wife that she had an excellent husband (she was not sure after 55 years together). 😉

  3. I was pleasantly surprised to see this pop up in my messages! I’m honored to have my blog considered ‘excellent.’ For various reasons I have an award-free blog, but I do enjoy the very occasional excitement of being chosen! I hope all your goals for the last and upcoming quarters were/will be met. Alternatively, that you’ll find that publisher you’re looking for. Blessings for this new year of possibilities!
