The Versatile Blogger Award

I was so tickled and flattered to be nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by My Personal Thing. As I enjoy her blog so much, it was a joy to be the target of her generosity. It is difficult to nominate just fifteen others – there are so many wonderful people doing good work here. The outstanding ones below are deserving of the award and special attention:

The rules of the Versatile Blogger Award require a person to tell the person who nominated them seven things about themselves. Here goes:

  1. Proust is my favorite author. His translator called him “the most intelligent man who ever wrote a book”, and I agree.
  2. I’m from a little Southern town.
  3. I write my blog because I have such happy memories of my childhood and can’t bear to think no one else has them. So now I pass them on to you.
  4. Mahler and Saint-Saens are my favorite composers, but nothing beats a good jug band.
  5. My three favorite films are “Jules and Jim”, “La Strada”, and “Babe” (yes, the little pig movie!)
  6. I love photography and have a Flickr account, which is suffering neglect due to this blog. I also make miniature books.
  7. Despite writing three novels and a boatload of short stories, the only things I have had accepted for publication are nonfiction magazine articles, needlepoint patterns, and photographs. Realizing that I just don’t have a commercial novel in me was very freeing.
