The rules for me to follow now are to nominate 5 blogs which cause me to pause at length and make me think. Then to post the logo for Thinking Blogger Award, which is at left, due to Stephen’s kind efforts to take me through the method for doing so. Please check out Steve’s blog, he has set himself a tremendous task in tracking family members. He also has helped me post the Thinking Blogger Award Logo which you can append to your blog when you nominate five other bloggers.
There are many blogs which are thought provoking and demonstrate the writers do ruminate over things and share their thought processes with readers. My five picks are (order is unimportant!)
1. (Worst)writer – at www.worstwriter.wordpress.com . Tommi has a wonderful writing voice, loves manual and electric typewriters and obviously loves the process of writing. An expatriate, he writes from Germany. He makes me think!
2. Galvanized – at www.galvanized.wordpress.com. This Texan matron, writer and observer thinks keenly about the culture she and her family inhabits. She is wise, socially and politically aware, insatiably curious about many things, spiritual and has a tremendous sense of humour. I look forward to all her posts, as she makes me take closer stock of situations surrounding me, here in Canada.
3. Joe Felso (ruminations) at www.joefelso.wordpress.com . This writer is a poet, teacher and artist with a marvellously complex view of the world he inhabits. He writes thoughfully, with passion, self-deprecation and a marvellous creativity. If many teachers were like him, our children could be considered in wise hands! His poetry has both depth and breadth.
4. My writings : A wide angle view of India at www.nitawriter.wordpress.com . Nita, a writer and middle aged woman from India provides a comprehensive view of life, manners, economy, education, politics and culture of India – always her writing makes me take stock of my life where I find myself and brings the realization of commonalities with people living geographically far away. Nita does a tremendous job of situating her India as a globally important country. i truly value what her writings bring to me.
5. Kay at www.lookingforbeauty.wordpress.com writes amazing, perceptive and sensitive portrayals of the character and needs of the elderly in their relationship with younger persons. She has, through her writings, processed her feelings and responses toward her aged mother’s care and decline toward death, and sharing these with us here in blog-land is a benediction.
I hope you enjoy and find useful what you find in the abovementioned blogs. Please propel the meme forward by nominating your own Thinking Blogger Awards.
