What is the Trailblazer Award? Well, I’d never heard of it until a recent visit to my friend’s blog, Phantsy That. The writer’s name is susan and we have been visiting each other’s blogs, as well as the occasional e-mail, for quite some time.
susan received the award from one of her blog friends, someone who is called Liberality. Liberality nomonated susan. I have seen the Liberality name on many comments at susan's. It seems susan nominated me to receive the award. That’s how it works. It comes with a stipulation. When you receive it, you are suppose to send it on to someone else.
This is the first and only blog award I have ever received and feel so honored, especially knowing the person who nominated me for it. I thank susan so very much.
I also think very highly of susan’s Phantsy That, as well as her other blog, Adventures, Ink. There, she writes stories and uses her own fantastic pen and ink drawings to illustrate. Her sketches, paintings and overall artwork is always beautifully designed, be it a scarf, a bag or a water color painting. susan's commentaries and posted articles on the environment and cutting edge technologies of the future come from a desire to make our world a better one.
Since susan gave me the award, I can’t pick her to receive it, otherwise I would. By the way, I didn’t capitalize ‘susan’ because she doesn’t. I don’t know why she doesn’t, but I honor it, for it might have some meaning I don’t know about. If it is for humility, I know about that. susan is the epitome of humble.
There are others that are equally deserving and making a choice is hard work for me. But I have chosen someone to give it to.
I want to send this Trailblazer award to Rebecca who posts the recuerdo mi corazon blog. Rebecca is unselfish in her words on her blog as well as what she writes in every comment she makes to others.
She helps raise money for those in need by holding unique fund raisers.They should be called “Fun” raisers as most are auctions of donated art work by her fabulous artistic and creative friends.
The words and thoughts she conveys are poetry of the utmost calm and soothing. Her art, much of which honors the Mexican Folk Art style, is as good as it gets. She ‘sees’ in words that others may write and is compassionate beyond compare. I know there isn’t one that knows her that will read this and disagree. She is a Trailblazer.
|This is the Trailblazer Award that I pass on to Rebecca|
So you have been chosen Rebecca. You now know the rules, pass it on when you take it from me. I felt so honored to be thought of in such high regard by my peer. I hope you feel the same way as I really feel you are one special blogger and human being, with amazing talent in artistry, the written word and pulling people together for the greater good of all.
Peace to All
