One Lovely Blog Award

A big thank you to Holly Suzanne – lifeinrelationtoart at: for nominating me.


“I am a person in process.  A believer in possibilities and the freedom to choose life in all it’s ways/forms etc.   A believer in life as art and art as life and life in relation to art and art in relation to life. The things I post on this blog will be a conglomeration of things that catch my fancy or things I’d like to share because for some reason they compel me.  Sometimes I will write a note, a poem, or some words to expand on these images.  Sometimes I may share readings that inform me and bolster me, or move me.”

I look forward to further exploring Holly’s blog  and I hope that you do too.  Very inspiring!

As part of the rules I am about to share 7 things about myself that you may not know.   They are:

1.   I love listening to Nick Drake recordings and encourage everyone to listen to the FRUIT TREE RADIO SHOW which can be found on Youtube.

2.  Matt Redman is my favorite Christian recording artist.  He is truly blessed.

3.  I like Allen Ginsberg’s work very much.  Allen Ginsberg interviews inspire me–even though I do not share some of his values, habits, choices, influences and political views.  I love the way that Allen speaks and teaches.  I love the way that Allen reads poetry.  To know his work is to know him.  Everyone has the right to record their own consciousness, to be themselves, to work toward reaching their full potential and to express themselves freely in writing.  Allen gave us much during his lifetime.

4.  I embrace multiculturalism.

5.  I care about the environment.

6.  I love animals even though I do not have any pets.  Reports of animal cruelty deeply saddens me.

7.  Picasso is one of my favorite artists.

As another “rule” for this award, I am to pass on the love, so to speak, by nominating 10 or so other lovely blogs for your reading pleasure:)

Here are 10 I am happy to nominate:

I hope that you enjoy these blogs.  I do.

Best regards,

Mary Ann
