Award Sparks Gladness

Our brightest blazes of gladness are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks.”      Samuel Johnson,

An unexpected spark of surprises through friendship gladdens my heart with this R.E.A.L.I.T.Y. award from my good friend, & blog partner Gerry. Gerry’s own primary blog Gerry’s Space (Cobbies69) is one of the first I followed and if you don’t know it you are very much missing out on a great blog  Gerry writes and shares his original works and photographs, He is always interesting, and quite often funny. I find his Gerry’s Space both a breath of fresh air and authentic.

To Gerry; with my sincere & heartfelt thanks to you for this acknowledgement My Kindest Sir. Let me also express my gratitude for your friendship, and your partnership with BTH & CRA.
Visit Gerry;s blog today to see what you have been missing. http://cobbies69.wordpress.com

The requisite rules and my responses below:

There are a few questions we are asked to answer by way of sharing a little more of who we are.

1. If you could change something what would you change?

I have though about this  long and hard as if this was being my last wish granted by the genie, My answer would be many things but I will say now that it would be how I made a living. Not there was anything wrong with what I did, just didn’t feed my spirit.

2. If you could relive one day, when would it be?

Answer-A Day In June.

3. What’s one thing that really scares you?

Answer  Not having a sense of control over my own life,

4. What one dream have you not completed yet and do you think you will be able to complete it?

Answer . There are a few dreams I am chasing and hope to always have a few that keep me looking up to the stars for encouragement.  One of those dreams is to find myself coming full circled musically, finally.

5. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?

Answer-This may come across as a bit altruistic but my sincerity is genuine To spend a day as  (or even with ) Marian Wright Edelman would give me insights that I could use today. Miss Edelman is a lawyer, social activist, and premier children’s rights advocate in the United States.  I want to be just like her when I grow up.
