When I came up with this idea last week my thinking was this will be easy…choose a blogger or re-blog a post you like – simple. HA. Right. Simple.
NOT so simple I found out this week. The whole idea actually this week seemed rather arrogant. Who am I to feature a blogger, when some of the bloggers I might want to feature will no doubt have a ton more followers than me.
So I hesitated this morning, but as you can read, I decided I’d just go for it. Temenos is not just about my sanctuary, it also represents for me a place of sharing as much as receiving.
I have had the idea for this post since Monday when I read the following on Warrior Writers – by Kristen Lamb
Writers are gods over the worlds we create. Some of us might be tiny gods, dreadful gods, absent gods, benevolent gods, generous gods, engaged gods, preoccupied gods, deadbeat gods, untalented gods, visionary, inspiring, or resourceful gods, but, to be gods, we must all have our distinctive God Particle known as our “voice.”
“GOD PARTICLE” as she names it, dove-tails nicely in with the idea I had for this Thursday feature. Yet still I struggled though because who? Who out of the myriad of post I read this week “voice” spoke to me? LOTS and LOTS. So rather than one feature blogger…I’m going to point you in the direction of three bloggers this week whose “voice” spoke to me. SO this week its more of a love in of sorts I guess :-)
Janine‘s voice, her beautiful haiku poems speak to me. A lovely haiku a day is the premise. I find haiku beautiful, yet I am just learning how to create these subtle & lovely poems.
I also wanted to point you over to PoeticPonderings . I found his blog intriguing and his voice is fresh and vibrant.
Then yesterday Life & Ink’s post touched me deeply. Her’s is the voice of a Mom. Not just any Mom, but a Mom with a child with Aspergers. I’ve sat here since reading it trying to pin point what exactly it is that touched me exactly about this particular post…and than I realized it was really very simple…her voice reminded me a little of my Mom. I can’t even say what exactly; maybe her voice is the voice of all Mom’s out there who struggle day to day.
Going forward I don’t know if I’m going to continue this “featured blogger”. The whole premise was supposed to be easy since my life is going to get alot more complicated in the months to come. I like the idea of commenting on bloggers who’s post touched me though…so with some tweeking I may bring back the concept, just change it up a bit. Stay tuned. Might change my mind again next week…like “a tea towel in the wind” Mom always said, never know if I’ll hang on or just come loose and go where the wind takes me. ;-) As my tagline says “I seek therefore I am”.
