Blog In Bloom Award Three to Four

Visiting other blogs is such a delight. Each has the personality and the essence of the author within it. The the words, pictures, poems and sometimes even music flows and blooms. I have recently spent time with the following bloggers that bloom and would like to bestow upon each, if I may, the Blog in Bloom award.

The first goes to Poetikat's Invisible Keepsakes who's delightful poetry, punctuated with humor and pictures makes her blog a joy to visit. Her poems "Touch", and "Spider Kid" clinched the need to recognize.

The second is presented to Sweet Repose. The blog is filled with wonderful antiques, poetry and pictures. Her "Ships of Earth" and "Lament for a Friend - Again", both pictures and verse are quite amazing. Sweet Repose has found beauty, promise and a voice in spite of and because of change.
For these and previous recipients, I did not create any rules with this award. If you would like to pass it along to other blooming blogs, please feel free to do so!

Thank you so much for this wonderful award. Being single(and loving it) at 58(soon 59), there have been tremendous changes in my life the last 2 years. Out of necessity, I have had to explore inner feelings and my future. This blog world has helped me open my eyes to such a wide audience, of caring, talented people, I have grown. I have to again, thank Gemma of Greyscale Territory, with her encouragement I started putting my thoughts to virtual paper.

A loner by nature, I now have the kind of friends in my world that encourage and push me to be truly me, they see my inner beauty and this is poetry to me.

Again, thank you so much.

Thank you, museswings (Cynthia) for this generous and considerate award.
I am enjoying YOUR blog more than you know, so to have you think highly of mine is a sincere pleasure.

Sometimes I have to remind myself it's not about the comments and the "strokes" we receive, is it? It IS about the genuine gift of supporting each other to continue to share, uninhibited and not worried about slipping up or making the grade.

I do appreciate your thoughtfulness.

You are welcome, and you're right! It's not about the strokes, it's about the self satisfaction of expression and the friendship and support of our blog buddies.
