It has been a long time since I have been tagged. We used to participate in all sorts of playfulness in the old AOL community. One of the best games we played was when we all interviewed each other. We found out a lot about each other by doing that.

I was tagged by Cynthia. This is a meme called the "Thinking Blog Award." Cynthia is one of my favorite bloggers ever. She took me under her wing when I was first stepping out into the blogging world, offering support. By commenting on my blog entries in those early days, she helped me to develop and perfect my ideas. She also helped me to meet many good people. Thanks, Cyn.

The rules of this meme are:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.

2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.

I used to read a lot more blogs than I currently do. I might have given up on blogging all together if Cynthia had not been so supportive and had I not discovered the following five blogs which fill my intellect, heart, and soul:

1. To Grow is to Be Anxious. Vince's blog delves into psychology and storytelling. From Vince I learned about Rollo May and also a book which has been very significant to my thinking: The Denial of Death. Vince hasn't been posting as often as he used to. I hope this changes because I really miss him.

2. In A Dark Time... This is a blog by Loren Webster in which he discusses nature and art. I found his blog while doing a Google search on a poet (I'm not sure which one it was now). Loren's discussions of books and nature are thought provoking and his logic is impeccable. He also cares deeply about nature and is an avid photographer.

3. Schizophrenia: A Carer's Journal. This is a blog written by a father whose son was recently diagnosed with Schizophrenia. I find his entries to be very honest, raw, and tender.

4. Erin's Everyday Thoughts. Erin writes about life and art from Cincinnati, Ohio. She is a serious writer who doesn't take herself too seriously. Sometimes, by her own admission, she can be downright silly.

5. Beth's Front Porch. Beth's writing is beautiful. Her entries often read like prose poems. I love her stories and her honesty about how she sees life.

Why thank you for the mention of my blog! I plan to check out the others on your list that I didn't already know about.

I hope all is well! :-)

I've been aware of a couple of these blogs already, and they are quite good. I'll be sure to check out the other ones.

Hope all is well, Theresa, and happy blogging! :-)



About Me

Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
