Inspirational

Theresa Williams of Theresa Williams-Author [Exile Edition] has awarded me with an

Inspirational Award

which orginated at Writer’s Reviews.

It is an award:

For those bloggers who inspire others through their words and actions. With a positive attitude, and an uplifting spirit these bloggers make the blogosphere a better place, and encourage others to do the same. This award is for bloggers who rise up to set an example but continue to reach out and support others.

I doubt many who know me would consider a “positive attitude” one of my defining traits, but since I’m still contemplating (i.e., stalling) on Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Riding at least until Wednesday, I thought this would be a good chance to recognize some blogs that have recently inspired me.

A few readers have already made their way over to Old Girl From the North Country, but if you haven’t been there recently you need to go see her recent artwork.

I’ve only recently added Beyond the Fields We Know to my RSS reader after I found a link to my site in my referrer log. It’s well worth the read.

I’ve also been reading One Thing I Know regularly since Will linked to my site and left comments. It’s inspirational in a more traditional sense of the word than most sites I visit regularly.

Brian at Sprintedon Hollow contains some powerful, original poems.

kenju of Imagine What I’m Leaving Out, my most frequent commenter lately, probably best fits the original definition offered by Writer’s Reviews. If you need a lift, kenju’s site offers a delightful sense of humor.

Of course, most of the sites I link to inspire me or I wouldn’t link to them, but I’ve already offered more than enough praise for alan, rb, and all those sites that inspire me to think a little more than I would have otherwise.

  1. Loren, I am touched by this. Your wonderful photos inspire me almost daily. I thank you, friend, and I congratulate you on being chosen for the award.

  2. Thanks so much, Loren. In A Dark Time is among the handful of blogs that I can visit daily. Your photos were what caught my attention. Then I began to read what you had to say and what your commenters had to say. I have enjoyed the discussions that take place on your blog. In A Dark Time continues to be an inspirational resource for me.
