I have been nominated for and awarded Blog of the Year 2013 by Clarissa Silva @

Thank you Clarissa for enjoying my words. They are truly a work in progress, as I plan to create more and more unique and quality writings for all to share and enjoy, or to simply hate:)  Please check out Clarissa’s site. She is very inspirational and informative. A quote that best describes her writing is, “…anyone who lives to read gorgeous writing will want to lick this (blog) and sleep with it between their legs.” — Dave Eggers (his quote wasn’t about her, but I just needed something profound to describe her talent, and “she is really cool” just did not cut it).
