Bursting At The Seams! Part 1

Second Exploding Head

I have been inhaling books and articles so quickly over the past few weeks. Like an addiction, I want more, more, more. Give it to me now. Another link, another email, another e-zine, research papers, scholarly journals, GoodReads, StumbleUpon, blog posts. I love it all.  I finally forced myself to stop today because I think my head just might explode! But what great information, intriguing points of view, and inspiration for me to step into the next phase of my cycle and write, write, write.

I am humbled by the receipt of some nominations and acknowledgements from fellow members of our WordPress family. I apologize for waiting so long to post some of these and properly thank those who sent them to me. Carey Mann, the scientifically brilliant author of The Bridge, nominated me for One Lovely Blog award a while back. Thank you Carey and a personal note to tell you I am jonesing for a new post by you. Hope to read a post of yours soon.

  1. I love the pic you chose – too cute..! 🙂
    No pet….!!!! I’d give you one of mine but I love them both, and couldn’t possibly part with either one…
    We just got a little ‘rescue dog’; he’s so cute, he melts my heart. Now instead of having one puppy-dog running to greet me, there’s now two.. How adorable they are.. 😉
    I love your questions, though if I had to answer either Bungee Jumping or Sky Diving – I couldn’t… Eeeek, I haven’t inherited that adventure gene; though I’d be happy to sit and watch… 😀

    • Thanks. I am still in hiding to a certain extent so I thought if I posted a picture of me as a little tiny girl, my adult identity wouldn’t be compromised. As for animals…..I seem to be missing that gene. Instead, I was blessed with a deep love of children and would happily raise ten at a time and love every minute of it. Much love 🙂

  2. I am just seeing this as a tagged post! Oh no! I should pay closer attention sometimes. I will see about getting this completed and running again. Thank you for tagging me!!

Thoughts and Musings Welcomed!
