One Lovely Blog Award

I've been greatly honored to receive One Lovely Blog Award from a special friend and writer, who is also herself a very worthy recipient of the award: Helena Harper

Helena is a fellow modern languages teacher who has also been interested in writing; she has written from short, fantasy stories for children to poetry for adults. She is a unique poet and a fellow VBT-Writers on the Move member.

Helena uses an original way to express her feelings via poetry, and her book 'It's a Teacher's Life...!' illustrates her life as a teacher vividly and successfully. Her second book, 'Family and More - Enemies or Friends?' is also an interesting collection of poetry. You can find extensive extracts from both collections on her website www.helenaharper.com.

Helena also writes unique, personalized poems for any occasion or situation, for anyone who wishes. Website http://sayitwithapoem.bttradespace.com

It is now my pleasure to pass on this award. These are the rules for those individuals I choose. They are simple:
1) Accept the award, and don’t forget to post a link back to the awarding person.
2) Pass the award on.

3) Notify the award winners.

There are two persons I would like to pass this award on to, who have inspired me in different ways:

Harry Gilleland

Mary Ann Melton

Harry Gilleland is an excellent poet and author , former faculty member in the Dept. of Microbiology and Immunolgy at LSU Health Science Center, School of Medicine in Shreveport. Harry was the first to host me in the VBT-Writers on the Move and was very encouraging and kind despite my mistakes! (Thank you!) "Poetic Musings of an Old, Fat Man" is Harry's third book. It contains an assortment of his poetry. It has both rhyming storoems (story-poems) and free-verse poems. Harry is definitely a person that deserves to get this award!

Mary Ann Melton is a fantastic photographer I got to know via Tweeter and from Henry Melton's site. She runs a wonderful blog filled with her photos from nature. She gets inspired by the beauty in the world around her and this aspect has made me to appreciate her sense for beauty and harmony. I have hosted Mary Ann in my blog quite recently.

Both these persons are unique in their own way. Enjoy their blog!
