I’m going to do something different for this award as Xara has previously asked me to highlight five aspects of myself that
I consider positive. So this is for her:
I have a broad fund of knowledge which is another way of saying I know a bit about many things.
I am a loyal friend who does not take kindness for granted.
I learn quickly and give credit to those who teach me either directly or through their actions.
I have an abiding faith in the fundamental goodness of people. We collectively do terrible things when we are in fear or when we are deceived by corrupt leaders, but we always manage to return to the light.
I am a survivor. I have survived people and events that would normally destroy a man; but I am alive and full of life. This is not just because I am strong; it is because the divine force placed good people in my life when I needed them most.
survivor road: Marcus writes about life as a male trauma survivor. There aren’t many blogs that take up the problem of men who have survived assault and abuse.
authenticitee: I just love her, and I love the way her blog has evolved.
Laura P. Schulman, MD, MA: She writes bluntly about the struggles of life with bi-polar disorder and she does it with wit and humor. And yes, I know your blog is award free. 🙂
the dune mouse: Gorgeous art, gorgeous writing, and Second Life as a way to make and promote art. She’s an inspiration to me and she has softened the well-earned cynicism I developed about the people who use Second Life.
As usual, my nominees are under no obligation to accept the award. I nominate people as a sign of appreciation and respect.
Thank you again, Xara.
