The Imagine Award


First, thanks to greengrowsdark for nominating me for this lovely award ( I especially like the unicorn!)

Second, here are five things I think are really creative on greengrowsdark‘s blog:

+ they frequently use videos which help to explain a topic, so that followers can understand what the issue is, and have great comments/discussions.

+ although they have lots of meaty, serious post topics, they also talk about their day to day life and experience, sometimes humorously, angrily, or sadly.

+ they use a variety of media in addition to videos and writing, such as poetry, photos, and drawings which enhance and really bring out the topic.

+ they show us that they are a real person whose followers can get close to, and form real connections with, from stories of Jack to reviews of movies spent watching with the bf, to issues with doctors and other normal things we all have to deal with too, making it through life however we can.

Ok, next is my list of 5 bloggers who are creative:


There are more who are also creative, but I could only pick 5!

Q & A

Beloved Person, Love, Close Friend

Ok, so I am supposed to answer the following 11 questions, then choose 11 other nominees for this award, then create 11 more questions for the nominees.  Here goes:

1. What is your favorite style of architecture? / What is your favorite style of architecture?

I don’t really have a favorite style of architecture.  I don’t like things that are too pretentious, or don’t blend into their surroundings.  But I like things from ancient farmhouses to slick and shiny skyscrapers.

2. What do you remember from your childhood? / What is a memory of your childhood?

Well, I remember a lot from my childhood.  I remember big snowstorms and drifts that were an adventure to run into or climb on and fall into.  I remember perfect summer days with pretty green and blooming flowers, riding my bike and playing with friends.  I remember lots of others too, but none so nice as these.

3. What animal would you compare you? / If you were an animal, what would it be?

Well, that depends.  One of my parts compares to cats, while my part (me) compares more to a very mellow dog.

4. Do you like the murals? / Do you like the murals?   Yes

5. If you could have one superpower, what would it be? / If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

To make things right.  To protect people from being hurt by stopping the person doing the hurting.

6. There is a movie would you watch every day? / What movie would you watch every day?

Grindhouse: Deathproof

7. What is your favorite comic? / What is your favorite comic?  

I guess Mel Brooks, and any Mel Brooks movie

8. There is a phrase / word you use the most? / There is a phrase or a word That you use the most?

Cool.  Use it way too much probably.

9. If this award were an object, what form it? / If this award were an object, what form it?

The top of a ribbon.

10. What is your favorite room in your home? / What is your favorite room in your home?

Living room

11. What do you think seeing a small child? / What do you think when you finish see a little child?
