Cool black beans with lots of hot sauce on them or a yummy bowl of foul!!!!
These two recognitions feel pretty good because they come from bloggers that I respect and that have something to say.
The award comes with the task of passing the torch to five more "Thinking Bloggers" thus further spreading our thought provoking ruminations across the blogosphere.
And my nominations are... (Drumroll...)
Mother Rising, one of the first blogs that I ever discovered. I love how she pushes me to remain creative and how she keeps me aware of what it is like to be a mom. I can be a mom of a small child indirectly through her. That's enough for me! Wendy, the author, is also not afraid to throw herself into social political issues that impact her. You are a brave soul, my dear Wendy!
Hopeful Beirut is another favorite. She doesn't write all that frequently and I am not even sure that she has ever visited my blog, but I appreciate hers. Through her I can experience Lebanon from afar.
I am also going to nominate Lucky White Girl. We have followed similar paths having both worked for human rights projects in Latin America and both being very dedicated to social, economic, and political justice everywhere. It's in our bones, our marrow, our blood, and our souls.
Another who writes sporadically but that I look forward to reading when she does is Pomegranate Queen. Why I like her blog so much I cannot say. Perhaps it is because she writes so infrequently and I am forced to read old posts and follow her links which allow me to see new universes, new wormholes as Y. who was in a workshop with me this weekend would say.
And as lacithecat did before me, I will forfeit my fifth nomination so that I can mention some other frequent haunts:
and my beloved Laure.
