Once upon a time, a bold blogging knight accepted a quest to create a community of bloggers. That daring blogger was Vibrant at https://blabberwockying.wordpress.com/2015/12/07/dragons-loyalty-award/
Working in a trusted fellowship, Vibrant carved out a space in the blogosphere for those who want to help and encourage each other, to read and follow, to laugh together and to share sorrows and trials, too. Vibrant helps to slay the dragon of disconnection, and each time he posts, he slays dragons of discord and indifference. For a rousing adventure, you must visit Blabberwockying!
And I must thank Sir Vibrant for gifting me with the Dragon’s Loyalty Award for Bloggers.
Herewith, I post the guidelines:
•Display the award on your blog.
•Announce your win with a post and link the blogger who nominated you.
•Present 6 deserving bloggers with the award.
•Link your awardees in the post.
•Write 7 interesting things about you.
Here are six bold bloggers I’ve recently met; I like what I’ve read so far, and very much look forward to reading more! I encourage you to visit, too…
And, finally, (hmmm…) seven interesting things about me…
1. I’ve watched Gandalf, Bilbo, and company bring about the defeat of Smaug twice. (I enjoy the movies even though they deviated from the book…)
2. I read Anne McCaffrey’s Dragon Riders series as a young bookstore clerk, and really enjoyed them. Lately I’ve been thinking about re-visiting those books, and exploring the new episodes that McCaffrey and her son have created since.
3. I have only watched the first season of Game of Thrones. I know dragons are coming, but please don’t tell me any more just yet; I will be catching up!
4. My son loved the Disney film Pete’s Dragon when he was young. I still hear Shelly Winters calling for Petey in my memory-mind.
5. I struggle with the question of loyalty and honesty: when does a loyal friend keep mum, and when does she tell the bald and frightening truth?
6. Tomorrow, I will meet a friend met in Grade Five, and we will celebrate her 60th birthday. We live 300 miles apart and will meet in the middle. Sandee is as loyal and as strong as a dragon, and her friendship has been a blessing for fifty years!
7. Oh-I just remembered another ‘dragon’ book by a favorite author from back about the time I met Sandee (seems I have been literarily steeped in dragon lore!) This one’s by Madeleine L’Engle:
