Lovely II

Emily at Backyard Owl made my day today by including Jemverse in the list of 15 blogs she loves, part of the One Lovely Blog Award. I’m really pleased about this as it’s so nice to hear about how my poems are received and appreciated worldwide.

The rules for this award are:

  1. Thank the blog that nominated you
  2. Share 7 things about yourself
  3. Identify 15 blogs you love and
  4. Tell each of them about this with a comment on their blogs.

This a great way of spreading the word about blogs you love. It’s always nice to catch someone doing something right and this is a great way of doing that.

Seven things about me:

  1. I have a passion for Victorian (and later) wooden breakwaters. Sadly these are in decline these days but there are still some fine, weathered examples to be found. I have myriad photographs and have used their inspiration in many of my driftwood sculptures over the years
  2. For over ten years I played bass surdo (a 22 inch deep sounding drum) as a sambista in a local bateria samba band – the Beach Bateria. Sadly failing health meant I had to stop but I retain a deep-seated love for all things ‘drum’
  3. My favourite food is Yaki Udon – a japanese noodle stir-fry with vegetables and ginger
  4. My favourite film of all time is the 1947 version of Graham Greene’s ‘Brighton Rock’ starring the late Richard Attenborough
  5. I am passionate about lavender
  6. I collect stones with holes; I very rarely leave the beach without at least one in my pocket
  7. I love Converse hi-tops. Currently I have around 15 pairs of varying age and condition and in a variety of colours.

My 15 Lovely Blog nominees – Really hard to choose here. Some I’ve been following for a while; others are quite new to me, but all help to brighten up my day and that’s what counts. Some bloggers have their own rules about awards. So, if your policy is not to accept them, no worries – doesn’t stop me loving your blog and saying so!

  1. The Red Box
  2. Wordypenguin
  3. Life in Poetry
  4. Trifles & Trinkets by the Sea
  5. Alfred’s Almanac
  6. And a poem on the side please
  7. MaggieMaeIjustsaythis
  8. Peace Love and Patchouli
  9. Traces of the Soul
  10. Quatrains of a Novice Poet
  11. The Starting End
  12. Colleen Kelbert – Canada
  13. Johnpoetflanagan
  14. Strings of soulfulness
  15. A word of mine

Thanks again Emily at Backyard Owl.
