Thinking. . .

During the last month or two, I have been honoured with a Thinking Blog Award (who me???) by Aisling of The Quiet Country House, Steve Emory of Color Sweet Tooth, and now my dear sister mermaid Joanna of the Gaian Tarot Artist's Journal, incandescent spirits all and blog friends whose artistry, creativity, wisdom and eloquence are a constant source of delight to me as I potter about here early in the day with my Wade Irish mug of coffee in hand.

Where would I be without all of you? I decline to follow that thought though to its logical conclusion, for it is too awful to contemplate.

Now in my turn, I am tagging the blithe spirits below, also the finest of companions to travel along with on life's journey of adventure, wonder and (hopefully), enlightenment somewhere up the trail and around the bend.

Dear me, I am only permitted to name five of you here, and there are so many of you who really should be here. I have not even begun my "naming of names", and I should need a number of posts such as this one to honour all of you as you so richly deserve.

Rain at Rainy Day Thoughts
Rowan at The Circle of the Year
Suzie at Suzie's Sacred Space

As Joanna said in her post: if you were tagged with the Thinking Blogger Award and you want to participate by tagging others, be sure to stop by The Thinking Blog (where this meme originated) for more info. The rules are easy:

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
3. Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote.

It has been a glorious day, and it promises to be an equally glorious evening with clear deep skies full of twinkling stars and a radiant waxing moon overhead. Shall we gather by the shore of the pond for tea, wise verbal ramblings and a little summer laughter? The sound of our clinking glasses, our thoughts and our chuckles will merge with the songs of the spring peepers in the pond and the magnificent loons out on the lake, and perhaps the newest member of the KerrdeLune clan (or tribe) will join us.

You know Cate, if I participated in the blogger awards, I would absolutely, definitely, without a second thought tag you and your blog!

Aria is up with the birds (as most toddlers are) and you and Lanark are one of the first places I like to visit in my it's-too-early-to-be-up blurry-eyed state. You words and wisdom are equivalent to my morning tea, my steaming shower and my toothbrush. In my half-sleep coma, you pitch your appreciative awe and wonder of Mother Earth into my brain where it perculates for the rest of the day.

So yeah, you make me think you wonderful crone you!

Cate, the link to RAINY DAY THOUGHTS led me to Suzie's site instead...just thought I'd let you know.

Lil, thank you for that!!! I have fixed things now (I think) and all is well. This has been a long day, and I should probably have left the post until tomorrow morning but wanted to do it tonight.

The veggie garden is in at last and a few happy hours were spent later, communing with orchids and little foxes. Very tiring stuff, but absolutely lovely, all of it.

Orchids and little foxes. Just doesn't seem possible - the stuff of dreams! How wonderful. And your contemplative photos are so well composed I love to look at them. They're like food to me, regardless of subject. Such a pleasure to play my composition game on them.

Thanks very much for adding my blog to your list of links - and for your kind words. My dear wife (Moomin Light) let me know this evening that you had written - I had missed a few days of your postings.

Make that three - I had nominated you as well!

Your awards are well-deserved Cate. Thank you for the meditations and observations. :)

I'm glad to see your five nominated blogs revealed here, Cate! I'm off to take a peek at them; I'm sure they are a pleasure to read.
