AnnieElf bestowed a Proximity Award upon me. I love things like this, not for any attention they might bring but because someone out there took the time to think of me. It uplifts the soul. Thank you, AnnieElf.
This award’s creators say:
Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming'. This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!
“Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award. According to the rules, you must mention eight more bloggers with whom you wish to share this.
The blogging community is a closely-knit one. We have our friends and acquaintances. One of my favorite blogger friends is, of course, Annie (and I can’t pass the Proximity Award back again.)
Unfortunately for me, I have been away from blogging for some time. Good people I once knew have given up on blogging or moved on to other things. I do have a small list (in no particular order.)
Thus the list stands at only four, not due to laziness on my part, but because I am out of touch with so many. My apologies. I have kept close to those who mean the world to me. My comment section does not need to contain hundreds of posts nor do I feel obligated to respond to every post my friends make on their own blogs. There is a quiet sense of family and when we do catch up with each other it is truly as if hardly any time has passed at all.
