Premio Dardos Award

PremioDardos Award

Recognition by our fellow bloggers is such an honor. And it is my  pleasure to have someone whose own blog personifies the value of this award, and who saw these in my own way of being.

What is the Premio Dardos Award?

Premio Dardos means “Prize Darts” in Spanish. It is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.

Julia who has presented me with this award is wonderfully multifaceted, as can be seen in her own blog, My Red Page. Thank you, for the richness you’ve brought into my world through yours.

There are other aspects to the presentation of this award, which I hope I will be able to fulfill, as time permits.

The Versitle Blogger Award Part One


Many thanks to Iva Beranek  for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award!

Here are seven facts about me:

1. I could Rhyme
All the time
If I wanted to, that is

It’s sublime
Not a crime
It might make you think, Gee Whiz

All my poems
Are not tomes
Some are shorter, and just prose

Rooster combs
Hen house homes
With silly words, now I shall close.
2.  I don’t recall that I’ve ever counted sheep
Not awake, nor waiting to fall asleep
3. The number three is very special to me.
4. I have lived in five of the U.S. states
5. I wanted to skate with the Roller Derby when I was a young woman
6. I got hit with a puck attending a hockey game back in the ’80s
7.  I have published a magazine in the music business


The Liebster Award!

I’m so honored to be presented with this most excellent award (I feel like I’ve got academy awards on my mantel). Thank you so much HumaAq  for thinking of me.

The questions requested of me to answer, go like this:

1. Why did you start your blog?

It was completely spontaneous, and I never knew I was going to do it. This is the Year of the Lovers, for me, and it says to follow my passions. Well, writing is a great passion of mine, and having been away from it for too long, I took the plunge, and was given an added surprise: meeting an amazing group of others who are like minded, in their passion for writing.

2. Who inspires you?

It is an interesting question. I actually feel inspired by everybody! I read, and it inspires me to look deeper into myself, and find the spark of creativity which pushes me to greater heights.

3. Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?

As a live in the moment gal, I will be as surprised to find where I’ll be in ten years, as I was to find myself here in WordPress, in Blogging University. I do know that I’ll enjoy the adventure to that moment. 🙂

4.What book are you reading right now?

I might have answered this not long ago, somewhere, though just where escapes me. The book I’ve been reading for a while – time is limited, so I have to schedule everything in – is Seven Fires by Brian S. Goodson, and Jean Moyer

5. What is your all time favorite movie?

Oh, a tough one. Like my favorite music, it changes, not only as I grow, but as new things come out. When I was thirteen, one movie did come into my life, and I would have said it would be my favorite movie, forever. And I still do love it. But others have come in, and stolen my heart as well. I will stick with my first love, for this question: West Side Story.

6. If you could choose anywhere in the world, where would you choose to live, and why?

On an island, where it is always warm.

7. Do you speak any foreign languages?

One, which my husband and I wrote: Altherian

8. Do you have any hidden talents?

I discovered during 2014, that I had vision. As we were trying to fit two households into one, I suddenly was able to know exactly what to put where, what would fit where, without taking a measuring tape to the space. I no idea where that ability comes from. Oh, and I do have a very good sense of direction, when driving.

9. What career would you choose if you had a free choice?

I would have to say Forensics.

10. Whats your favorite type of music?

Every type of music. It would be easier to answer what I don’t like.

11. Whats your favorite type of food?

I’m sure Mr. Quantum would say Elven Lembas Bread – from the Lord of the Rings. He might be right, since I believe bread of any type is my greatest craving, with butter, of course.

I will be coming up with nominees as time goes by, since I have just signed up for A Story A Day in May, and I will be typing my little fingers off. Consider that it will be forth coming, like my last 25 Songs, 25 Days post, the special 42 favorites that are also part of that same challenge.
