I have had the opportunity to make a lot of new friends on my social networking sites. These friends have blogs that are wonderful! These friends are very talented. Among the top most of these blogs (cream comes to the top!) is Elysian Field Originals.

Valerie Ashley is…how do I say it without going all mushy? She is a completely sincere person and her art is stunning. I am honored to be able to call her my friend. We haven’t known each other very long but it was one of those meetings that will change my life (sorry, getting all mushy).

This last week I was presented with the “Proximity Award” from Valerie.proximidadeaward_thumbThis award has a special meaning behind it:

“This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY, the nearness of space, time, and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find, and be, friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is the when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!”

It now falls to me to pass it on to 8 people who demonstrate this spirit. This isn’t an easy thing to do! I haven’t been blogging for very long, but  I do have several that I like and that I think fit the intent of this award. Please be sure to visit these blogs, I’m sure you will love them, Thank you

"Kind One?"
"Yes Arial..."
"You forgot something."
"I don't think so Arial, what are you talking about?"
"look at the bottom of the posts!"
"I still don't...wait a minute...oh of course! Thanks for bringing that to my attention, what ever would I do without you."

Arial wants me to point out that you can also listen to each post by playing the audio at the end of each posting.

Fun Fairie Facts

You Know a Fairie is Present When...

You hear a whispering of leaves.
You see a whirlwind.
You feel a tingling sensation in your hair.
You have an unexplained loss of time.
You laugh uncontrollably, or feel exceptionally silly.
You see blades of grass bending when there
is no one around.

The Most Likely Place for Fairie Portals Are...

Lake shores
Islands
Glades in the forest
Where two roads intersect
Fences and border hedges (this is Arial's favorite)
Stairwells, hallways and landings
Tidal pools
Bends in a road
Thresholds

I would like to give special thanks to Gail Schimmelpfennig for allowing me to put her wonderful poem "Seeking the Muse" on my site. You can read her poem in the fairy poetry section under "Fairies in Word and Song". Gail is Utah State Poetry Society's 2009 Poet of the Year, and I'm proud to say, a dear friend. You can find her on FaceBook where there is a group for the Utah poets.
