Sandra, at A WriterWeaves a Tale, has kindly passed on this ribbon to me--thanks so much, Sandra!
According to the rules, I need to reveal five “fabulous moments” in my life, mention five things I love, and list five things I hate, then pass on the award to five more deserving bloggers. Here goes:
Five fabulous moments in my life:
-getting my first permanent job out of college with a scholarly publisher
-the night I became engaged
-my wedding day
-my first publication, a poem, in a literary magazine
-the day I left my job to start my own freelancing business
Five things I love:
(just a few off the top of my head. These are things, not people and pets, which go without saying)
-Books, books, books!
-Watching DVDs of old television shows from the 50s and 60s (e.g. Dick van Dyke, Alfred Hitchcock Presents)
-Bright, vivid colors, especially blues and greens, and especially blue and green together
-Green salads with fruit! cranberries, strawberries, mandarin oranges…yum!
Five things I hate:
-My mother’s dementia. The existence of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in the world.
-Creepy crawly things (no, I will never live in the South, in spite of my next item)
-People who complain about others trying to force religious beliefs on them while trying to force their own nonbelief on others
