Earlier today, I saw a blog post called "Give It Time." The blogger shows several picture of flowers taken at different times, so the lighting had changed. As the light changed, the flowers appearance changed too.
The blogger, onesilentwinter, said, "Give it time and things will look different soon." I think that's a pretty nice sentiment for when we are going through something difficult and need to see things in a new light. Things change, we see things differently and often feel better.
So back to the award. What is the Premio Dardos Award? "Premio Dardos means "prize darts" in Spanish. It is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing."
The rules state to accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and link back to his or her blog. Then pass the award to 15 worthy blogs.
I’ve found that many people don’t like blog awards, so I was hesitant about actually passing this award on to 15 of you. But instead of worrying about that, I’m trying to be Zen. Maybe you’ll pass on this award or not. Maybe you’ll read this post or not. You all inspire me in your unique ways.
Collectively, you blog about cooking, food, travel, design, parenting, children, parents, spirituality, movies, music, dance, philosophy, teaching, students, society, words, photography, the practice of medicine, the practice of law, getting your PHD, sickness, loss, life, death, humor, pets, wild animals, guns, politics, race, religion, grammar, writing, fashion, depression, love, marriage, divorce, and sports. And more topics that I can think of right now.
You’ve all commented on my blog at least once, which always makes me happy. Some of you are new bloggers to me. Others have been blog friends for years now. I found all of your blogs in different ways. And its usually hard to remember exactly how, but I’m glad that I found each of you. At the very least, in no particular order, here’s a list of 15 cool blogs to visit.
