Tammy, “The Daily Warrior” acknowledged this journal in her entry ‘The Reflection Award’.
Bea, “The Wanderer” tagged me with her “Thinking Blogger Award” and as a “Rockin’ Man Blogger” <grin>.
I am genuinely honored to have been highlighted by two fellow journal writers. That these writers are women of such strength is humbling.
So why do I not complete the assigned awards by following directions and in turn acknowledge 5 additional journals?
I suspect I was traumatized years ago as I tried to assemble our daughter’s Fisher Price Sesame Street Playhouse. The directions were written in speech balloons emanating from the mouth of picture after picture of a perpetually happy Big Bird. I’ve never been the same when it comes to following directions. <grin>
More likely, I simply believe that too many who try to share, or are thinking about sharing, are still working through the complexity of opening their life and developing their journal skills.
I read and value ALL the journal writers listed to the right of this entry.
However IF the journal Gestapo tortured me by tearing off the hair on my body with duct tape for hours on end until I broke down and “nominated” someone. I could only cryptically babble that the most reflective, thinking, rockin’ influence is from someone who does not even write a journal.
Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer
