6:10am and inspired…

Good Wednesday morning.  Two missions today.  Sharing inspiring posts of the week from several of my favorite bloggers and blogger award nominations.

Kicking it off with Ivan Terzic @ My Highlights – Utopia with Face Painting – Magical Self-Transforming

FeyGirl @ Serenity Spell with her post: Anoles of the Rainbow — and a Newly Discovered Color Variant!

Sandy @ Another Lovely Day with her poem: breathing in the quiet

The tide gently,
in between the spaces,
covering the shore,
smoothing patterns,
clearing all traces,
with waves
that are but ripples,
lapping…(hit link for more)

And now on to the Blogger awards of the week:

Thank you Joy of Traveling’s Diaries for nominating me for the One Lovely Award.   As to seven facts about me: (1) I’m a lousy swimmer (forget triathlons). (2) I still haven’t been to Paris.  (3) I can watch re-runs of the King of Queens over and over and over. (4) I have little (no) creative talent yet, I am in awe of artists (musicians, painters, sculptures, photographers, wood carvers).   (5) Can survive on pasta and ice cream. (6) I love all animals and mammals, all living things. (7) I am equally at peace in the Mountains or near the Ocean.  

In return, I’d like to nominate the following bloggers for the One Lovely Award – listed in alphabetical order.  My short description in parens…
