I was delighted to receive a nomination from Tadhg https://askateenageaspie.wordpress.com for The Spirit Animal Blog Award.  Thank you very much, Tadhg for thinking of me; I am deeply honored by your consideration.  If any of you have not seen his blog, please visit it, and discover a witty, artistic, and poetic young man.

The Rules of the Award:

1.) Thank the blogger who nominated you, and link back to that page.

2.) Post the award picture on your blog.

3.) Write a short paragraph about yourself and what your blog means to you.

4.) If you could be any animal, what would you be?

5.) Pick and notify ten nominees.

A Little About Me And What My Blog Means To Me:

I am a writer who has come to writing later in life and a college teacher for several decades. I am committed to an exploration of life and ideas. Reading has always been a crucial part of who I am, and I am blessed with being able to share that love of books in both my classes and now through my blog.  I hope to be able to share the work that I am producing through my novel writing and to connect with others who are exploring and discussing their ideas.  I feel very lucky to have made contact with so many wonderful people through this blog.

If I Were A Spirit Animal, I Would Be:

a wolf. I had to think very hard about this choice, because I have a deep affinity with several animals, but the wolf is loyal, brave, and adventurous. I realize many are afraid of these animals, but wolves do get a bad reputation from various horror movies, including some I have enjoyed and reviewed.  The true nature of the wolf, however, is strong and admirable, so I am always moved when I see photos of these beautiful animals; therefore, I hope I would be a spirit wolf.

  1. Thanks. Nice to get insights here. I would be conflicted between choosing the Wolf or the raven. I see someone mentioned the Turtle – if you haven’t read it Russell Hoban’s Turtle Diary is a great book with immense mythological power. Very much enjoying my visits here. Regards Thom.
