This is the first of three award posts! Apologies for this taking so long. The others will follow shortly!
Novus Lectio has kindly nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to my anonymous blogging friend who writes insightful and thought provoking poetic musings.
One lovely Blog award rules:
1- Thank the person that nominated you.
2- Provide a link to their blog.
3- List the rules.
4- Display the award on your post of the Award.
5- List seven interesting facts about yourself.
6- Nominate other bloggers for this award and leave a comment on one of their posts to let them know you have nominated them.
OK, so 7 interesting things about me. Well I have very few options left after posting fifty of them back in the autumn! Will see what I can do.
1- I am fascinated by antique microscopes and would collect them if I had money and space.
2- I have always had an interest in lettering , though you would not know it from my handwriting. I would also collect Bill Graham Fillmore concert posters, again if I had the money and space, because of the very free approach to lettering (and sometimes legibility!). I once did a weekend calligraphy course but it was far too disciplined for me – but it did cure a trapped nerve in my shoulder (long story).
3- I am good at procrastination…which is why it took so long to respond to these nominations.
4- I want to experience Scuba diving but there is a minor obstacle to this in that I can’t swim. Technically this is OK as diving is basically controlled sinking and I am sure I could manage that 😀. Coming back up again might be tricky though… Maybe a project for 2018 could be to learn to swim?
5- I love the art of Frances MacDonald and the designs of her brother-in-law Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The recently destroyed library at the Glasgow School of Art (designed by CRM) was my favourite room in the world.
6- I have never framed and hung any of my artwork in my own home, and probably never will. Don’t ask me why as I don’t know!
7- I rarely smile and have never, to my knowledge, laughed out loud. Don’t take it personally – it is a combination of introversion and my natural basset hound resting expression. I love making others smile or laugh though.
My nominees! No obligation at all, I know some people don’t like these awards and/or struggle for time.
