Here's to Scribblers
TrailBoss gave me an award as a Superior Scribbler. She said that I was cool because I wrote about boat things. Well, yeah, I guess I do write quite a bit about boat stuff. It's a happy part of my life. And then sometimes I have those moments when I get serious and write about my experience, strength and hope. I've always enjoyed scribbling. So thanks for the award. I'll keep scribbling away at whatever comes to mind. I'm not sure how superior it all is but it's an honest go at sharing.
I'm supposed to pass this award along to five others who I think scribble a lot in a superior manner. Ha! Just kidding on that. There are so many of us who scribble away on blogs that it's hard to pick five. How am I supposed to do that? After losing sleep over this, I made a decision to nominate the following who I think scribble in a diverse and superior manner:
1. Michael across the pond who writes about his work, his life, his bowling, his brick toting mates, and his sobriety. Michael has a lot of talents when it comes to writing: blog, newsletters, programming code, etc.
2. Findon, another fellow from England, who expresses himself eloquently. His posts make me think about so much. He writes about his sobriety and how life is for him with his lovely wife. His writing is often poignant and intellectual.
3. Steve is a superior scribbler for sure. He writes blogs and blongs. (I had never heard the word blong until Steve wrote about it). In his writing, suffice to say that he has some great information to share about his sobriety and his long-time experience with music, people, motorcycles, and his lovely wife.
4. Mrs. Hen is a stream of consciousness scribbler. She writes about what is going on with her heart and her head. She has many interesting things to write about including her experience in Al-Anon.
5. Judith is a professional scribbler. She has written a couple of novels and is working to publish one. Her writing is intelligent, thought-provoking and honest.
As with much of life, there are a few rules. But I don't much like rules and I'm not an enforcer so you can play if you want. If you do play, nominate 5 other scribblers. Tell them about the award and link to them. I think that's about it.
Happy scribbling everyone.
