A Sunshine Award Recipient (with a haiku, too)

The Sunshine Award

The haiku…

A Sunshine Award

Good for one haiku

Seriously though. H. J. Lockman, like most of you, is a writer who follows my blog. He considers himself a “hopeful future writer” and what writer (even the published one) doesn’t feel that way sometimes? Thank you, Lockman, for finding my blog and enjoying it enough to nominate me for a Sunshine Award.

Every time someone likes (or Likes) or comments on an article I write, I feel 20 feet tall even though in real life I am only 5 foot 10. So “thank you”s to everyone who has ever liked, Liked, or commented on an article. You make my day.

There are a few rules for me to follow:

1) Post the Sunshine Award logo.
2) Accept the nomination and link back to the nominator.
3) Answer the questions.
4) Nominate ten other blogs and inform them of the nomination.

The Questions

  • My Favorite Color: hazel (because I love hazel eyes)

  • My Favorite Animal: dolphins (because they know how to smile)

  • My Favorite Number: i (the square root of negative 1)

  • My Favorite Non-Alcoholic Beverage: unsweet tea (and Yes I am from the south)

  • My Favorite Alcoholic Beverage: I actually don’t drink at all. And not because I’m a snob. I don’t like the taste.

  • Facebook or Twitter: Facebook (because I can interact more with my readers)

  • My Passions: writing blogs and fantasy (of course) and martial arts (belted in 3 systems)

  • Giving or Receiving Gifts: I love to give gifts. My favorite part of this award is the nominating of 10 people for the award. I like that part so much I’m nominating more than 10 people.

  • Favorite City: Huntsville, Alabama with its city built above a cave system, right by the Tennessee River and Wheeler Wildlife Refuge. What city could be more perfect?

  • Favorite TV Shows: I don’t watch live television alone because I can’t recognize faces or many facial expressions so I get lost. I do like anime (in Japanese with English subtitles) which is easier for me to follow.

The Nominations: my chance to give back and share the joy. Here are twelve (not ten) bloggers who have also given me sunshine.
