I would like to remind everyone about a powerful and beautiful song,
which seemed to be repeated endlessly when it came out. It’s now even
more a special one that makes me remember my dreams. The song, that
came out in 1971 is,
“I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing (In Perfect Harmony…)”
Even though it was an advertising jingle written for the Coca Cola
commercial, it has wonderful lyrics written by Billy Davis. It was
sung first by the Hillside Singers, later by the New Seekers.
I feel I have become so much closer and connected to the world. This
is through finding my blogging friends, like all of you out there.
This community has become built up into a “new world” for me. It means
so much to me!
It is so hard when I win award nominations to decide who to pass the
award nominations on to. Since I started this year, 2014, I have been
heartily trying to give new writers, blogs I have just begun following
or they have just begun following me, the ‘torch.’
Winning or receiving award nominations is also, such a thrill!
I remember my last ‘picnic’ celebration when I won an award where I let
you in on my favorite people, my friends.
These are the ones who have commented with such feeling, empathy and
given me encouragement. They are part of the reason to continue forging
onward in my writing.
I cannot help myself, though, by getting the recent Sisterhood of the
World Bloggers Award, I wanted to ‘chuck’ my new year’s resolution and
just let my friends, who have become like sisters, receive a “Shout out!”
I wish to let you know that I realize Sisters can have Brothers. I do
have two brothers, who have been there throughout my life, but…
This post, today, is for the girls!
My friend, Julie, who has been recently getting me to laugh quite
a lot and also, enjoying reading her journals from ages 15 and 16,
gave me a special Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!
I told her she is my younger sister and I am her older sister, with a
connecting bonds of music and movies, some similar interests and just
plain enjoying reading each other! For following rules on this award,
along with the clip art of the special award, may be found here, too!

The following people have been my friends, commenting and hanging out
here with me. I have probably left out a few, for which I apologize,
ahead of time. May their world be brighter, filled with peace and
harmony. You make my world a better place, dear ones!
1. Jill, who has recently told us that she was seeing lighthouses
everywhere and got inspired to write about the lighthouse keeper.
2. Her photography of nature will draw you in, plus her writing makes
this ‘Curious Gal’ a treat and a great blog:
3. Morgan, who just got her book published! Congrats, sister!
4. Celeste, who helps us to become more aware of vegan choices
and helped me to also, think twice when I purchase different
products! A healthier lifestyle and better world choices here:

with her little ‘munchkins’ in her kindergarten class:
6. When I opened her post to see the “Foragers Feast,” I was in
awe with this lovely blog, all over again! Food with natural
and edible beauty featured here:
7. Karen, who inspires me to try my hand with poetry. She bares
her soul, along with beauty in her photos paired with her words:
8. Tracy, who I adore her photography of New England, it brings me
the raw energy of the sea, the beauty in bridges and all sorts of her
own journey and philosophy included:
9. Brenda, who is and always will be, one of my friends! You will
her delightful fairy tale stories, her pairings of poetry with art,
music and photographs:

11. Jules, who writes all kinds of different styles, including Flashy
Fiction, continuing sagas and poetry. She and I have some different
kinds of conversations, deeper than others around:

lists and chooses her own way to change and motivate herself, while
moving you to new actions, too:
13. Timi, who has been giving me smiles and thought provoking posts
for quite awhile. One that caught my eye, was about why do people
think they should touch someone’s hair, just because it is different?
14. Glorialana, whose beauty is shown through her artistic poems
and heartfelt words. She has come a long way since she started in 2010!
