She is an amazing writer,
her words often lift me in the exact
feeling that I am having from day to day.

Check SHADOW out. She is one of the BEST!!!

Why I like BLOGGING?

This question in itself is good reason for calling the Neno Award right up there with the best of the best. Ask yourself this question and you will see what I mean.

The feelings stirring inside me as I ponder this are worthwhile contemplations.

I like blogging because it is a way to heal my weariness as I work through issues of abuse, of abandonment, of love, of loss, of life. We all have reasons in our world to have expressions of pain, celebrations of joy, and great discoveries. We come across experiences and want to shout our feelings. Blogging is the way that we do that. It is healing, it is HOPE, it is healthy.

As human beings I believe that we all experience the same emotions. We experience them for different reasons, different circumstances, lives of joy and despair. We need others to hear us out. We need each other, someone to listen, someone to give us perspective, someone to offer us a dose of HOPE when we feel we have none left to muster up. It is COURAGE in words. COURAGE IN COMMENTS. We give each other HUGS....what we as human beings need.

May our generations be filled with more HOPE, more COURAGE, more COMPASSION, as we share our lives through blogging.

Legal or not I plan to post this on each of my blogs....there are so many friendships that are created through this amazing link of love. May you each find some sunshine, and give some sunshine, to others by way of your words of hope, your expression of honest caring, and COMMENTS!!!

Thanks for the award! I think I misunderstood the point of what I was supposed to do. So I did give an award to someone; however, I did not blog anything about myself.
Sorry, if I blew it. I however, feel WONDERFUL about my post!

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
