My year has started on a high note!

Thanks to Francina at Seasons Poetry for nominating my site for the Kreativ Blogger Award!

Last summer when I changed the format of this blog, I didn’t think I would have many readers let alone receive awards – because who reads poetry? Well, it turns out that there are a lot of poetry readers and lovers out there and some of them enjoy my work.

Rules of the Award:

This award comes with responsibility. I like to think of it as paying it forward. I see a lot creativity across WordPress daily so it’s going to be hard to choose just six other bloggers to nominate. However before I make the nominations, I have to reveal ten things no one knows about me so here goes

Ten Things

1. The African violet I received for my birthday a few years ago is still alive – just barely.
2. I sometimes read the dictionary because the etymology of words fascinates me.
3. I went for a walk in the park one night while it was snowing and it was one of the most magical experiences of my life.
4. I wish I had taken ballet classes when I was a child.
5. I might have undiagnosed OCD.
6. I consider my friends members of my family.
7. I’ve kept just about every piece of poetry I’ve written since I was 15.
8. I love playing Scrabble – it might actually be an addiction.
9. The only constellation I can identify is the Big Dipper.
10. I am a romantic, although not always hopeless.

I wish the best for everyone in the year ahead.
