Liebster Award Nomination

I am very happy to share that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by tkbrownwriter. Our blogging community is vast, composed of good folks producing lots of great content. I feel blessed to be a part of it. It is heartwarming to be recognized by a fellow blogger for my efforts. Thank you, TK, for this honor.

TK is a great writer of poetry, devotionals, and interesting articles. From TK’s About Page: “I started writing poetry when I was five years old. I had gone to Sunday School and learned about Jesus. I wrote a poem of five or six lines. I do not remember what I wrote, only that I wrote. . . . I continued to write as I traveled through life. Three children and seven grandchildren later, I am finally becoming a published poet.” A fabulous accomplishment, TK! If you haven’t already, please check out tkbrownwriter. You’ll enjoy what you read.

The Liebster Award is a way for someone in our community to bring attention to relatively new bloggers who create content deemed worthy of a broader audience. The meaning of the German word Liebster includes these concepts: kind, lovely, pleasant, valued, endearing, and welcome.

Rules for the Liebster Blogger Award:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and give a link to her or his blog.
2. Answer the 11 questions asked of you.
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers.
4. Ask your nominees 11 questions.
5. Notify your nominees once you have uploaded your post.

TK’s Questions:

  1. What is your favorite genre to read and why?

I’m primarily a non-fiction reader because I enjoy learning about the bridge of science & spirituality, foods, travel, and human & planetary health.

  1. What color best describes you as a person and why?

Green.  All shades.  Environmental concerns are of utmost importance to me.

  1. If travel into outer space were as simple as traveling around the world, where would you go and why?

To Venus, because she’s my ruling planet.

  1. Is the statement, “Black Lives Matter” racist?

No.

  1. Is the statement, “All Lives Matter” racist?

No.

  1. Why did you answer questions 4 and 5 as you did?

Bringing attention to the marginalization of black communities with the Black Lives Matter statement is not racist; it is bluntly informative. In the United States, there has never been a doubt that white lives matter, as the attitude of white privilege has prevailed since the country was “discovered” by Europeans.  In my opinion, the statement All Lives Matter was formed as a response to the BLM statement by whites who are simply unaware of the depths of inequity, negligence, and disenfranchisement suffered by the majority of black communities at the hands of white power from the time of colonization.  The current BLM movement provides us with a tremendous opportunity for education and setting things right.

  1. Whom have you considered your most important role model and why?

I can’t say that I have a single role model.  I am in awe of prophets, civil rights leaders, animal rights advocates, and those who work on behalf of the planet.  I admire ministers who promote love more than dogma, regenerative farmers, medical workers who are not afraid to go against protocol to help a patient, and folks who assist with disaster relief.  I have an appreciation for the parents, teachers, policy makers, and community organizers who work from a sense of moral compass with a genuine desire to do good.  Generally, I hold in highest esteem those who lovingly engage in doing the right thing for themselves and the collective.

  1. Why do we have parents?

Parents create space for us and bring us into this reality.  Our interactions with them, both aligning and resisting, inform us in life-long guidance.  Oftentimes, parents present us with opportunities to experience unconditional love as well as forgiveness, the importance of which cannot be overestimated.

  1. What is most important: to have peace of mind or to have a million dollars?

Peace of mind, undoubtedly.

  1. What does writing do for you personally?

Writing allows me to share information that might inspire others to act on behalf of the greater good (which can mean helping oneself feel better by eating healthier, planting a tree, traveling to new lands, etc.)  Using my gifts with an intention of contributing to a better world is uplifting to me.

  1. Do you engage in the visual arts (i.e., painting, sketching, sculpting)? If so, which?

  1. Congratulations, Lisa; and You are most welcome. I enjoyed reading your answers. They were very well thought-out and written. I congratulate each of your nominees. This ability to recognize our fellow bloggers is very special to me. I think we all too often do not tell those around us when they are doing well. This reminds us to take some time to do just this. I appreciate you taking the time to answer, to nominate, and to ask new questions. Each of these takes a good bit of time–at least for me they do–so, it is indeed special that you have chosen to participate in this recognition process. Thank You so very much! Blessings!
