To say I was surprised to receive this award is an understatement. I’ve barely been here a month, but already I am overwhelmed with gratitude and joy–and it is all thanks to you, my loyal, thoughtful, beautiful followers. I have always felt insecure in my writing–I’ve yet to truly experience and understand this world, and I was unsure of my ability to capture its intricacies. You have given me hope. Hope that I am not writing to the wind, who is a patient listener but rarely gives feedback. Hope that I am on my way to unlocking the secrets of our universe and the human condition–hope that I am not alone in my curiosity for our world and planet (which are two completely different things). You have given me hope that our world is perhaps not as messed up as it seems–or, at least, it is fixable.
I must truly and ardently thank my parents for this as well. They had the audacity and determination to raise a free spirit. For that, I am eternally grateful. They are the greatest of my familial treasures and have always enveloped me in kindness and respect. They set me in the sun to let me bloom and grow, and I would not be who I am without their consideration and love. Thanks, Mama. Thanks, Daddy-o.
This blog is meant to be a creative space welcome to all, and I will continue to encourage follower participation–I want to create an environment of passionate discussion and thoughtful prose, both through writing and everyday situations, and with your help, I believe it can be done. So, from the very bottom of the overflowing-with-gratitude-well-spring I call a heart, thank you!
