Put your thinking caps on (thinking blogger awards)
The lovely Deirdre and the amazing Frida nominated me as one of their Thinking Bloggers (And I am feeling so honored!), and thus I can nominate five blogs myself. This is harder than it sounds, since every blog I read makes me think, ruminate, muse, ponder. I never have a day where some turn of phrase, some image or idea, doesn’t make me stop and evaluate my own beliefs. Honestly, you are my university right now. And for that, I say thank you.
That being said, I DO want honor five blogs that always offer me much food for thought.
Diary of a Self Portrait—Jessie reminds me to look deeply at my surroundings, my preconceived notions, my “givens.” Her writing is always rich with close-observations, and rewards re-readings.
Better Make it a Double—Emmie never fails to remind me of how important mothering is—intellectually, emotionally, politically.
Waiting on the Front Porch—This is my new blog crush, honestly. Bee’s writing shocks me like cold water, forcing me to think about what I believe to be true. I love how fearlessly honest she is. I can’t believe it took me this long to discover her!
California Fever—Marilyn is endlessly curious—her blog covers the spectrum: politics, art, music, philosophy, education. Her passion for knowledge and experience inspires me to broaden my own horizons.
Grow Wings—Because Laini’s writing process makes me see all of the possibilities in my own. Because her imagination seems to range over everything, showing me how enchanted reality can be. And because her positive nature leads me to question my own received ideas about what artists should be like.
Oy, I could keep going and going and going with this. What can I say…you are all endlessly fascinating to me!
