The Back Room

With respect to Socrates, my unexamined life is not worth living. The front room is the face we show everyone but we hide our true self in the back room.

Creative Blogger Response

I’ve been honored with the nomination of a Creative Blogger Award by the amazingly positive and culturally expanding Danica at Living a Beautiful Life:

Danica writes about the things beautiful in her life, the things that make her smile, dance and generally feel giddy.  I always have a grin when I take the often nostalgic trip on her blog of delights (often video presented).  She praises Bob Seger and Gerry Rafferty?  Her blog just makes you feel good.

As for the nomination, I cannot abide by the letter of the rules herein, since I only track a handful of bloggers.  Not a pumpkin seed handful but more like a ginger handful.  Each one potent in its singular creativity.

The rules for this award are:
° Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify all nominees via their social media/blogs
° Thank and post the link of the blog that nominated you
° Share 5 facts about yourself to your readers
° Pass these rules on to them



That said…


Along with Miss Danica, I can see time-worthy concentration in the following:

  1. A blog about lots of stuff

Here a man from England, a couple hours from London, shares his heart and soul in several blogs going on the cultural identity, artistic endeavor, psychologically unbound journey entering his third decade of life.  And he happens to be writing a kick-ass book as well.  Jealous much?

  1. VenusLotus

So there’s this woman from Toronto, an astrological firebrand exploring cosmic connectedness while expanding aural horizons with almost daily videos of what’s hot soft and buttery for your soul, and if that wasn’t enough she gives up mad culinary snaps of what tickles her tongue.

  1. WriterInSoul

Furiously prolific from long thoughtful by no means definitive answers about burning social conscience issues of the day to short snappy but not snarky comments from people passing through each train stop in her life thus far.  She may remind you of the clever girl in high school always one step ahead of giving a flying fuck about what you think she should say or be.  She’s funny in her truthfulness and entertaining as hell.

Listen.  These four are generous in reply, empathic in nature and generally nice people.  And they push me to write more, create more and feel more.

Thank you.

    Thanks so much for the wonderful intro, Andrew! Please accept the award — I don’t believe the rules are so rigid that a recipient would be disqualified for having less than 10 nominees.

    I’m off to visit your nominated/recommended blogs :).

      Ah! I thought it was Toronto! I have never been to Canada so every place there sounds fun and foreign. My apologies. And you are quite welcome. You got yourself a well-deserved shout-OUT!

    Hey, thanks very much for linking to my blog.

    I was actually going to nominate you for a blog award that someone nominated me for. I also only closely follow a small handful of blogs and wasn’t sure if these award things were something you were interested in, so feel free to decline when I get around to doing mine.
