I’m a little humbled, excited and perhaps, startled to have been given a “You Make My Day” award by über-stylish Ronda Carman of All the Best. And, as usual, I’m late with my thank you.
Since I can’t send a written note of thanks, I’ll say it here. Thank you! As many before me have noted, your blog is inspirational and I thank you for it. All the Best is a regular read for me, and I highly recommend you, and the others I have noted on my blogroll, to all my readers.
“Life is a banquet,” says Mame Dennis in the stage production of ‘Auntie Mame’, “and most poor sons-of-bitches are starving to death.” Not in the blogosphere, in my experience. We’re lucky to have such a community of bon viveurs, raconteurs, auteurs and errr… chercheurs. It’s all there for the asking.
Now then, instead of resting on my laurels and in the spirit of the award, I wish to announce a contest…. there may be those among you who are thinking about blogging, or writing, or just sounding off, but haven’t yet taken the plunge. Here’s your chance. I’d like to publish your article. Please e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) an essay based on the topic “This is Elegance” or “This is Easy, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Live Elegantly.” Or just about anything else that has to do with my obsessions.
I’ll publish the one I like the best with full credits.
Carpé diem. I wish you all the best.
