Reach out and “Touch” a blogcasa.

Peace all.
For no particular reason I have not “done” blog awards in a long time.  I know  they’re useful for connecting folks to new blogcasas that they might not otherwise discover. They can be an interesting form of networking in blogland.  I have appreciated each one that has come my way while blogging.  I just often get caught up in using my blog time tossing out posts about other things that have caught my attention. So this is an effort to not forget about two recent awards from Jingle and eva626.  Thanks to both of you for your kind  words and thoughtfulness.  In return I thought I’d create my own award visual using one of my energyscapes, “Touch,” for whomever decides to accept and post an award visual at their blogcasa.  Hey, an artist is always on the prowl for exposure! LOL. So, if you see “Touch” making its way around blogland beyond here to new blogcasas that would be a way of tracing how far our connections have traveled.  I hope others will reach out and touch others with “Touch.”

"Touch" by Eva Wojcik


Jingle–offers a playground for poets.

eva626–I think this “eva” has food on her brainpan about as much as I do.

I ought to share 7 things about moi:

I adore sweet potatoes fried in olive oil then drizzled with honey and dashed with sea salt.

I enjoy driving old state and county roads rather than interstate highways.

I wish my car was a horse.

Wisteria is one of my favorite flowering plants.

I do not like wearing shoes.

Watching “wire in the blood” starring Robson Green on hulu is one of my vices.

I covet a large loom for weaving.

Okay–now  here are  some blogcasas I offer for your explorations–I’ve come across 7 and 15 blogs to be awarded. Does it really matter? Hopefully everyone will discover something new. 

Clegyr Boia–mAgdA’s wild land art in Wales! O yeah.

roxie–She’s got publishing opportunities of all sorts if you’re a writer searching for ink.

artist at exit O–Al’s artistic wanderings along the Ohio River to create ART from styrofoam and water borne “trash”.

flandrumhill–Need a nature walk? Information and beauty in one blogcasa.

penpusherpen-Pen’s Poems ‘n Stuff–lovely poetic darkness–and she’s got great gifs too. Life slants in mysterious ways.

Dennis’ Diary of Destruction—O MUCH fun and trouble with dogs –and cats.

Living a Whole Life–Meg’s writing, photography and visual art as she moves through life’s search for pearls–and  real love.

One Cool Site–great blog development information and more! Check it out for the wordpress doctor deluxe.

Posky’s blog–for some modern wicked written humor and comics–be forewarned.

Yi-Ching—Careful, her photographic tours of New York City include plenty of food porn to torture your taste buds. Poetry “to fu.”

Matthew Ashton–For a political perspective of a certain sort that includes reviews of movies, books and games.

slpmartin’s Read Between the Minds–poetry with a sharpening edge.

Barbara Rodgers’ By the Sea–Art, quotes, inspiration and insights.

The Arts Web Show–Oh for some just plain silly fun at times.  Never know what Richard will serve up next. Really.

Leslie Paints—If you’re looking for some art instruction online, Leslie offers it with each post of her own creative process.

Lynn Wiles–Check out her lovely abstract photography and relax.

Dustus–Adam does it all poetic! Poetry challenges and more.

LazFreedman’s fun micro poems “Moving right along with you”

Echostains & Bookstains for a mix of art and poetry–including Lynda’s  poetic challenges with art prompts fun.

YesBut’s Images –color and black & white photography.

Ryder’s weblog of ramblings galore–and your Tanka Bar connection. Yes, you want Tanka Bars!

Gabrielle Bryden’s life in the land down under with children and frogs.

Samanthamj  –poetry in motion

Designldg by Laurent G –photographs and words from India’s universe.

My apologies to any blog awards I’ve not returned in a timely fashion. No slights intended.

    Oh, Eva … I so look forward to exploring some of these blogs! Thank you. Sorry I haven’t been around in a while – life has been so hectic, this year. I’ll tell you privately of my trials and triumphs – many of both. Hugs from the coastal mountains!

    • June 5, 2011 at 12:31 am

      Well, Big Sur Kate—I expect a FULL report–private or public–asap! Before your mountaintop is thunderstruck! Hey, you got any space up there for someone who NEEDS to get away from the midwest malarias? Hmm?

    “Reach out and touch ” reminded me of a similar theme in my Senior year in Nursing. It brings about different people with a common goal of touching the lives of others through their works. You have a great idea and I know that it will bring a lot of inspiration to the other bloggers. Thank you for sharing and thanks for commenting back.- Mr. B

    • June 5, 2011 at 12:28 am

      Hi again, island traveler. I do hope the other blogcasas are explored by newly interested parties. Makes us all a little more mindful that we are all connected in so many ways. Thank you for your kind words.
