Sharing the Love

Earlier this week I was nominated for a Liebster Award by a reader. Basically this is a like a chain-letter blog love fest. A reader with her own blog included me in a list of blogs she really loves. Thank you!!

I’m not going to follow all the rules (because that’s not my style), but I thought I’d answer the questions my fellow blogger posed on her post and then recommend a few blogs myself.

  1. What is your favorite quote/proverb? I don’t have one. Really.
  2. Do you prefer incense or candles and why? Both! If I had to only have one I’d choose the candle, because sometimes incense can make me sneeze, especially if I have a cold coming on.
  3. What is your favorite music genre? Again, I can’t pick just one. I love music, but I barely listen to it. Mostly I need music without words; my head is already too full, and the kids too noisy, to put up with yet another person’s words! Mostly if I choose music it is symphonic or ambient.
  4. Do you have any artistic skills (draw, write, sing, etc.)? I am a classically trained singer.
  5. Grease or Footloose and why? Footloose. Grease always annoyed the crap out of me. When I was 9 I would put on my Footloose soundtrack LP and choreograph entire dances.
  6. What is your dream job? I’m living it! Writing, thinking, raising my kids.
  7. Of all the books you own, which do you consider the most sacred? The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie by May Gibbs, a gift given to me by my aunt when I was born. As for spiritual sacred texts, I no longer hold one text as more sacred than another.
  8. Do you have any phobias? As I get older heights get much harder. I also feel funny about moths and bats. But I have no true phobia.
  9. Who would you prefer to have as a child: Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger or Jason Voorhees, and why? I don’t know who those people are. Other than Freddy Krueger, and ew.
  10. What song are you not ashamed to say you love? Oh, I have a love of cheesy pop music. I will admit here and now that there are some Katy Perry songs that I quite enjoy.

And now for two blogs that you might not know about. Confessions of a Hedge Witch is a smart, witchy blog by a priestess, academic, and all around wild woman. When Death Calls is infrequent, but dark and poetic. I enjoy both and you might too!

  1. I’ll make you some symphonic/ambient music, Niki. I can give or take words in songs, but good ambient music is rare, and really great if you can find it. There needs to be more of it in the world. Most of it is really stale and repetitive, and not in a good way. In the meantime, try Brian Eno’s Music for Airports. 🙂

    • I would love some bespoke ambient music!! I heard something yoga-ish from Brian Eno the other night and I really liked it. I’m trying to get Adam to figure out what it was. I’ll try Music for Airports.
