Glistening Awards and Yellow Snow

I received two much-appreciated awards last week from Vesper-she of the beautiful prose and poetry that should already be published. I found Vesper's blog nearly six months ago, and there isn't a week that goes by that I don't treat myself to the haunting beauty of her work: quiet and unassuming, still waters really do run deep. The caliber of her writing makes these awards even more special. Thanks, Vesper.

Though I am challenged with anything beyond German, I'm told this award means Light in the Soul. Must be all the romantic notions bleeding through the sarcasm.

I wish to pass this award on to The Walking Man. He is the kind of prolific I wish someone would develop a pill for. The candor and rawness in his writing never fails to strike a resonating note. Always there is an echo of all that is good.

And, apparently now that The Vortex is considered fabulous by at least one person, I can now remove the word fabulous from my list of never-use pretentious terms.

I pass this award along to Pam because her blog convinces me that when we meet up this Summer in D.C., we'll discover that we've actually been friends on a parallel plane all along.

This is me on my edits. Friday, when company came, my lightning-fast downhill rush to the end took a tumble. Today: taxes. Might as well be yellow snow, right? Tonight: back to edits.

Hope everyone has a great start to the week!

OMG--you made me want to laugh and cry at the same time! What a sweet award, thank you, thank you, thank you!

And we all trip up in the edits, but I'm betting your little snowman is right side up before the day is over. (And will still be a pristine white--no yellow.)

I love the snowman on his head. Feels like that somedays.

Sue L said...

Congrats on the blog awards and LMAO about the snowman. I have felt like that many days lately. :)

the walking man said...

Thank You Laura, that I connect at all is the light that keeps me in the bank of hope. You humble me so.

it's not that I don't appreciate the award I DO but I have never been able to get one to post so I just file them away in the hope that one day I will get more technically proficient.

I've never seen a break dancing snow man!
