For the yesterdays and todays, and the tomorrows I can hardly wait for – Thank you. /C.Ahern/

A week ago I started something new on my blog – Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge with the very first prompt “Beginning”. And today, shortly before the 2nd prompt is about to see the daylight, I wanted to thank everyone who became a part of this challenge. Your posts are as beautiful and diverse as you are. As every new beginning is.

I will be happy to see you back again – inspired to enjoy!
And everyone’ s welcome to join!  – Ese –

Very Inspiring Blogger Award ~ Nomination ~ Circle of Love

First of all I want to thank

Managua at http://managuagunntoday.wordpress.com/2012/07/20/very-inspiring-blogger-award-nomination-circle-of-love/

for nominating my blog for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. I was and still am surprised and think it as a great vote of confidence to a newbe like me from such an experienced blogger.

Have to admit that it has always been a touch difficult to say something about myself – no matter what the context has been. But since  I need to list 7 things about myself according to the rules, will give my best try:

–      I’ ve always thought that everything in life isn’ t just black and white, there’ re plenty of other colours, too;

–      travelling is a passion of mine and the road itself is as important as destination;

–      Latvian by passport but wanderer by the soul;

–      I am a good listener(usually);

–      I need „a piece” of solitude almost as much as I need people;

–      glass is half full for me – in most of the cases;

–      I find precious the little wonders, surprises and good moments in life because they are the ones forming the big picture.

And now – the more pleasant part with nominating15 other bloggers for the award! Since I am on WordPress not that long, still working on my…discoveries. But here go the ones that have caught my eye and I do(and will) enjoy returning to for more „sparks” of opinions, ideas, enjoyment, entertainment, inspiration, deep thinking and experience:
