Liebster Blog Award
December 8, 2012
Thank you tinylessonsblog.com so much for the Liebster Blog Awards nomination!
Now, the rules of accepting a Liebster Blog Award calls for 7-15 blog nominations and answering six random questions. I hope you enjoy my even more random answers and that you take the time to check out the fifteen blogs I nominated for a Liebster Blog Award.
1) Is there a book you would never want to be parted from? Why?
Oh, The Places You’ll Go By: Dr. Suess. This was the last book published before his death. In typical Suess style it is full of brilliant rhymes and encourages children (and big children) think outside the box. This particular book is full of magical life lessons that I understand particularly well since entering the adult world. It seems to me that Dr. Suess wanted to leave children with the message that life is about being unique and finding your own way. He talks about good days, bad days, coming through it all and believing in yourself. This is my favourite book of all time and a must have for any literary collection! I will leave you with the words of the last page and if they do not inspire you to buy this book I do not know what will!
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!
2) Which six authors, living or dead, will you invite to join your new reading group?
Kurt Vonnegut, John Irving, David Ignatow, Alice Munroe, Robert Lowell and Maeve Binchy.
3) Book or Kindle? Would anything change this decision?
Book. I am slow to accept technology. I love the feel of cudding up with a good book. I love my book collection with my classics that I can re-read or at least remember the adventure I took when I see the book title name. I think I will always prefer a book but I am pretty sure I will get a Kindle eventually. I always succumb to what is cool.
4) If you could study full-time or study full-time again what would you choose to learn about?
I think about this all the time! I love art and writing. So, I suppose something to do with that. I love kids. I would like to teach art and poetry to children. Along the lines of Dr. Suess last book – I would like to teach that self expression is possible through art, important and accepted.
5) Who would you write a biography of? What’s so special about them?
I’m not sure that I would write a biography about anyone. I think they are important and I know people like them. I don’t buy them or read them. Yes, the journey is important but I am more interested in my own journey. This answer came off totally self-absorbed which is not my intention I just think everything I need to know about a person can be found on Wikipedia!
6) You’ve been asked to write an article for Condé Nast’s Traveller magazine on your favourite holiday destination. What is your opening sentence?
‘The Old Pueblo’ sits at the base of an inactive volcano named Cuk Son by the Tohono O’odham Native Americans, translated Tucson in English, my home.
I am nominating the following blogs I have discovered for a Liebster Blog Award (I hope they accept the award). The blogs are all very different, but all worth checking out:
