Shine On Award


Many thanks to Deepa at http:// for so graciously  nominating me  for this award. Do visit her site to read excellent prose and poetry from one of the excellent, sensitive, inspiring  young  writers who are blogging.

I have decided to follow the rules on this nomination and tell you some details about me. I think it will be about places where I have traveled or lived.

Did you know that I think India is incredible?  LOL!

New York, after all the times I have visited, is my second favorite city.

I grew up in a little town in Virginia, and never in my wildest dreams imagined seeing so much of the world.

We lived in Manhattan, Kansas for three years where the people are amazingly friendly.

Baltimore, Maryland  was our first urban living experience and we loved the ethnic festivals and flavor of the city.

My first teaching position was in Crozet  in rural Virginia. My last assignment teaching was in Mesa, Arizona in a suburban Phoenix  district. Both were lovely experiences for me. I was always amazed that I got paid for having so much fun!

Two book recommendations:                                                                                                               1. WHAT YOUNG INDIA WANTS by Chetan Bhagat                                                                     2. THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY by Erik Larson  ( Chicago in 1993)

I love to encourage bloggers as I have been encouraged by so many others. We become  a family with bloggers we choose as family. It is a wonderful experience!  Thank you all for encouraging me and I hope you will be encouraged as well! Congratulations to my nominees for your excellent blogs.  Do continue to SHINE ON !

    Thanks for the kind nomination. I really appreciate it, although I confess I’m not really sure how all this award stuff works (in spite of the fact you gave me instructions). Again, thanks for thinking of me and my little blog.
