Thanks to sinrenter, I was nominated for the ‘one lovely blog award’. Not sure if much of what I write would be considered ‘lovely’, however, that descriptor aside, I was happy to accept on the basis that, it’s always positive to be acknowledged for what you do, and as a new way for writers to connect. You can check out sinrenter here – irentyousomesin.wordpress.
Apparently, one of the conditions of accepting the ‘award’ is to both tell seven things about yourself, and nominate another, or other blogs, so first things first –
Seven things about me –
I recently celebrated my silver wedding anniversary (25 years)
I’m 5ft 7 ¾ inches tall
I’ve worn glasses since I was 11 years old, not the same pair though
I’m a terrific freestyle dancer – Think Northern Soul ?!
The first book I remember reading was ‘Stig of the Dump’ by Clive King
In 1982, after missing our train back from Stirling to Glasgow, me and a mate, Steve, ran back to the gig venue we’d been at to use their payphone, and there we bumped into @EdwynCollins and his band Orange Juice packing up their tour van, they were sympathetic and gave us a lift back to Glasgow. As a solo artist, Edwyn Collins is probably best known for this – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DZn0lDglMI
In 1994, I, briefly, met Muhammad Ali
Another condition of acceptance is to nominate other blogs, so I’d like to nominate the following three blogs –
For its powerful emotive poetry –
For its photography –
For its esoteric verse –
