The Dragon’s Loyalty Award

Usually, there are a few rules that go with awards and this one is no exception: 1.  Display the Award Certificate on your website 2.  Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award 3.  Present 15 or so awards to deserving bloggers 4.  Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post 5.  Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

A Dragon is a protector, still a warrior for the good and the honest. And Dragons love poetry, gems, modesty, painting, photography – and yes, writing!

My nominees:

The following list represents a few of the blogs I’ve recently discovered and like very much!  If you are a recipient and do not accept awards, no problem.  I’m still delighted to share your link with my readers.

7 things about me:

1.  I am currently reading:  The Anatomy of Story – 22 Steps to Becoming a Master Storyteller by John Truby.

2.  I finally bought that new camera.

3.  I attended Jeffery Straker’s sold out gig this past week.  I wish him well as he continues his tour across Canada.

4.  Last night I attended a concert at Massey Hall.  Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell with RICHARD THOMPSON!!!  I have fond memories of discovering Emmylou’s recordings in the 1980s and Richard Thompson…well what can I say!  I have all of his albums except for the new one.

5.   Today was my mom’s 83rd birthday.  I had her over for dinner, cake and presents.

6.  Weight loss update:  I’ve lost 18 pounds since January.

7.  I love California Mandarin oranges.   I’ve been buying them in two-pound bags, lately.  I can’t get enough of them!

Thanks for reading, and Raani…thanks again for the award.

Best regards,
