Thank you to: GlitzyRitzyMommy, for the nomination.

I appreciate it and thank you for the continual support of my blog.

Here are my answers to the questions.

1.) Who is your favorite author or poet?

Author: Kurt Vonnegut Jr. Poet: Edgar Allan Poe

2.) Are there any bridges in life you would want to burn or change?

No. While the present isn’t perfect, the idea of an unknown change in my past frightens me.

3.) At this very moment what fear is holding you back from a happier life, more success, or person?

Finally achieving my goals, and realizing that my dream doesn’t hold up to my expectations.

4.) In a few words how would you describe your inner self?


5.) What mistake have you made that you learned from?

Pushing the ones around me away and not being truthful with others and myself.

6.)What makes you smile, feel passionate and alive?

Family, writing and nature.

7.)Are you truly happy in the place you are now or are you living life for someone else?

I am living life for my family and myself, and very happy.

8.) Cat person or dog person or neither and why?

Dog person at heart, cat person in reality.

9.) I love this one, someone once said to me in conversation, what would people say at your funeral about you? So what would they say about you?

He always made me laugh and he seemed to have an answer for everything.

10.) If a genie granted you 3 wishes what would you wish for?

1.)For my wife to be healthy again.

2.)For my daughter to be able to live a long fruitful life.

3.) To shed the demons that haunt and devour my mind.

11.) If you had one last chance to show the world who you are on your blog what would you post about?

A piece of poetry:

One that captured the beauty, fear, anger, grief and sadness of the human condition.

    Thanks so much!

    Pushing people away from me is something I’ve often observed, but haven’t managed to actually learn any productive lessons from yet.

    And as far as extraterrestrials go, it seems unfathomable that in this infinite universe there are no other planets with life. Granted, I don’t think there are little green men coming in space ships to visit us, but there’s got to be something out there somewhere.

    What an honor to be nominated for something like this…and it’s even more special when your writing is so personal and not just ‘How To Crochet 101.’ Not that there isn’t a niche for needlework [and it’s probably very important to some!] but I think you get what I’m saying. Kudos to you for your accomplishment and also to GlitzyRitzyMommy for the spreading some sunshine. I know I’ll be lost in the blog rabbit hole with all these new recommendations.
