Reflections on life. Collections of inspirational quotes. Rediscovering relationships and faith.
‘Writing to me is simply thinking through my fingers.” Isaac Asimov
I started writing my blog not solely for an audience but as a channel for my thoughts, my experiences, my passions and my addiction to quotes. I didn’t realize the power of the Good Spirit will accompany my words and give life to them. A Life that breathes inspiration and touches my reader’s heart and mind.
When I think and put it into writing, it is like sowing a seed. I do not know what will happen to that seed. Will it grow and bear fruits?
After three months of sowing, I can see my seeds growing slowly through a positive response from my readers. Some never commented on my posts but they showed their presence by nominating me among the top 10 emerging and influential blogs or blogging to fame . Others would add me up to technoractic and subscribe to my feeds.
Some became my friends and met them in real life, the rest remained faceless friends and leave their marks on my posts, add me up in their blogrolls or transmit me a blogger’s virus called meme perhaps thinking I have something nutty to say … and the latest??
I have been given the Thinking Blogger Award by AcquireWisdom !! Isn’t it great?? The Good Spirit made him think or better still, reflect?!!
I think, therefore I blog is a parody of Cogito ergo sum and it is what I am! Thank you Sam of Acquire Wisdom and for everyone who has been touch by the Good Spirit…PAX et BONUM!!!
The originator of the award, Ilker Yoldas at The Thinking Blog has some rules:
- If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think
- Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme
- Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog). That was that! Please, remember to tag blogs with real merits, i.e. relative content, and above all – blogs that really get you thinking!
Now I would like to pass this award to:
Liz strauss – whose manifesto “I will live as a writer who keeps alive the music of the language, holds head and heart together in the words, and writes in hope and passion that one person will be better because he or she reads what I wrote” , inspired me to improve my contents.
Claudia -for her delicate and smooth flowing artistic insights.
Filipino Photographers – I like the expressions and life they have captured through their lens.
Janet – for her reflective thinking blog and her initiative to encourage a recognition for the top ten emerging influential blogs.
I’m posting Janet’s overall ranking of the blogs submitted for the third week so I could have the chance to know each one of them, except for myself of course! To each one of you, my kudos and hope that our mind will be an instrument for a “better world” within ourselves and outside us!
Let’s think through our fingers…
Unprovided with original learning, unformed in the habits of thinking, unskilled in the arts of composition, I resolved to write a book.” Edward Gibbon
I always wrote with the idea that what I put out there is going to stay there. Once I publish something, it has been published. I’ve never deleted more than one or two posts from my site. I don’t think that there are takebacks. I don’t feel right about it. ” –
A scrupulous writer, in every sentence that he writes, will ask himself at least four questions, thus: 1. What am I trying to say? 2. What words will express it? 3. What image or idiom will make it clearer? 4. Is this image fresh enough to have an effect?” – George Orwell
This is pretty much what journals are all about, at least to me. I knew as I wrote them that even though they provided an excellent place for brain (and heart, and psyche) dump, they were mainly a map of me.” – Colleen Wainwright
Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.”- Cyril Connolly
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.” – C.S. Lewis
When I get ready to talk to people, I spend two thirds of the time thinking what they want to hear and one third thinking about what I want to say.” – Abraham Lincoln
The ‘how’ thinker gets problems solved effectively because he wastes no time with futile ‘ifs’.” – Norman Vincent Peale
