Reading, exploring and learning new things. These are the basics of my life. I love discovering ways of seeing through reading of the journals. Different and fresh perspectives. They remind me that life does not need to be all peaches and roses. Sometimes it can be hilarious and unfavorable;)
A golden rule by William Morris (1834-1896) aspires me to live: ''Have nothing in your house which you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.''
A new award! My fourth award!
I won it for my writing: El premio Arte y Pico. It means something like the Award for Art/Artistry and a Kiss on the Cheek.
According to the Arte y Pico blog, where the award originated, it's given to blogs ''los cuales me nutren y enriquecen el espiritu y la creatividad. En ellos veo dedicacion, creatividad, esmero, companerismo, alegria y por sobre todo, ARTE, mucho arte. Quiero que con este premio, se agasaje a todas aquellas blogueras que dia a dia comparten este espacio y lo enriquecen cada dia un poco mas.''
In english, this award is given to blogs ''which nourish an enrich my spirit and creativity. In these blogs I see dedication, creativity, care, companionship, joyfulness, and overall, ART, so much art. With this award, I want to give attention to those bloggers who day after share this space, the blogosphere, and enrich every day a little bit more.''
The Arte y Pico Award comes with these rules:
1- Pick 5-blogs that you consider deserving of this award on the basis of creativity, design, interesting material, and contributions to the blogger community, regardless of language.
2- Post the names of the authors and links to their blogs so that everyone can visit.
3- Display the award on your blog and include the name and link of the blog that gave it to you.
4- Link to this post at the Arte y Pico Blog, so everyone will know the origin of the award.
5- Display these rules.
I think quality is more important than quantity, so I am only naming 1 recipient. I am really excited to offer the award to:
Mélanie, at Le Petit Cabinet de Curiosites, for the way she, like I, tries to reflect the beauty that's in our nature to reach for, and create it where we can. Her blog is based on antiquities et voyages in the heart of Provence, that offers the loveliest scenery in southern France. Hers is incredibly uplifting, jump in now:)
I think these awards are awesome because they are kind of like the MTV movie awards -that they are given to you by your fans:) Yes, you are not my fans, you are my dear readers:)
My dear friend, one of my faithful and sweet readers, Kate, Thank YOU! I'm very honoured to receive it. We shall forget not, for ours let it be in the sweetness of friendship. Following poem 'Don't Quit' shall be ours:)
~ DON'T QUIT~
Don't quit when
the tide is lowest,
For it's just about
Don't quit over doubts
For there's something
you may learn.
Don't quit when
the night is darkest,
For it's just a while
Don't quit when you've
run the farthest,
For the race is almost won.
Don't quit when
the hill is steepest,
For your goal
is almost nigh;
Don't quit, for you're
not a failure
Until you fail to try.
