thank you very much for the 'Noblesse oblige' award !
And.... Cornel Gingarasu, who I also chose for the Noblesse Oblige.Two weeks ago, Sheila Tajima awarded me the Noblesse Oblige....refer to THE NO BLOG (just click)for all the details. Deb Keirce also bestowed thisdelightful award to the Windows to the Words Challenge. Thank you Deb, for the award and theflattering comments (blush, blush). I have chosen Cornel Gingarasu to pass this award on to, becauseof his remarkable photography/art blog.I love to recognize bloggers and artists whose work is "something else"...those I find that step outside the boundaries and offer original, inspiring, off-beat, and just downright enjoyable material on their blog. Cornel does that in a big way. Hailing from Romania, Cornel mixes exquisite photography with humor, spirituality, sensuality, and some really deep stuff that frazzles my little philosophical brain. I have, with his permission, posted one of his works, from a few weeks back, titled "Silent Meditation", below... There is a written work entitled "Desiderata". It begins "Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence". One thing I have become painfully aware of in recent years (maybe just cause I've got older and crankier, but I don't think so) is the level of noise in today's world. And the inability to find silence. Noise wears on the spirit like sandpaper on a graham cracker. It's a subject I could expound on for hours on end. But I won't. I'll save it for another time and place.
