Award ceremony – June 2019. Receiving and giving.


(See page 1 for thanks and intro.)

FROM: Ash, who writes deeply passionate poetry, shares photos of his stunning surroundings and posts quotes that are inspirational.


  1. Acknowledge the person who nominated you for the award.
  2. Post the award image (see page no.1).
  3. Answer the questions you were asked.
  4. Nominate other bloggers to pass this award onto.
  5. Compose a set of questions for those you decided to nominate.


  1. If you could travel to one place in the world for inspiration, where would it be?
    For inspiration? I never thought of inspiration as the purpose of my travels. However, I am able to find it in many different places. If I feel like writing something less structured, I like to venture out into nature away from people. Top of a mountain. A river bank. Etc.
  2. If you wrote a book or something in your genre to produce a book, who would receive the first copy and why?
    That is such a unique question. You are on a roll here. I think that the first copy is something I would keep for myself. But the first I would give would probably go to my sibling. Because I know they would enjoy it. 
  3. What’s your earliest memory of writing something?
    Oddly enough, I think I started with poetry. It was to express my feelings. Maybe in 6th grade? I was a pretty late bloomer (when it comes to writing).
  4. Besides writing, what’s another passion of yours?
    Coaching. In a variety of ways. I tutored when I was younger, I counseled professionals and I enjoyed it. 
  5. You’re in the middle of nowhere, you pull up to a red light. The light seems to be taking forever. You don’t see a soul for miles, do you run the light? Yes or No?
    That would probably depend on other factors. I can get pretty frustrated with red lights. However, I would be slightly suspicious of a long red light in the middle of nowhere with no traffic.




  1. Where/ what for you do not mind waiting?
  2. Aside from sliced bread, what is the best thing?
  3. What are you really bad at?
  4. If you had a minute of everyone’s attention, what would you say?
  5. Sushi or tacos?
  6. What would make an ideal gift for you?
  7. What has been the most challenging thing in your life to date?

            1. That’s too bad. I wonder if someone people have pingbacks disabled, or maybe they are just not compatible with the types of sites some people have. I know it is recommended to tell people they’ve been nominated, etc., but I like the element of surprise. You either see it, or you don’t. But I needed to point it out to you since my personal award.

  1. Aha! Personality question! And it turns out we’re pretty much exact opposites. 😆 Granted, you seem pretty balanced, but going by which ways you lean… Well, I’m generally an INFP, occasionally with some ambiguity on the F/T, depending on my mood. Kind of funny, being a selfish, semi-cynical “mediator.” Sometimes I wonder if that’s quite right. I hope it is; it seems a nice thing to be, at least it does to me. And anyway, it’s what I get almost every time. But then again, the box doesn’t make the person, the person makes the box. Still, it’s a nice ideal to aspire to.

      1. I’m appreciated. I just often feel I don’t deserve it. There are rare times where I feel my own influence, and can nudge things in the right direction, but usually I just feel powerless and like I’m part of the problem. I don’t really live up to my theoretical personality type’s title. You, though! I was reading a description of ESTJs and nigh laughed aloud. Especially the parts about honesty. 😅 It may not be a hundred percent, but I’m pretty sure there are at least some things in there that are very much you.

          1. Something about ESTJs being highly intolerant of dishonesty and laziness, especially at work; often earning them a reputation of inflexibility, though in truth they’re usually such sticklers only because they truly believe honesty and hard work are the best way to go.

            I found it funny, because a. I have a weird sense of humor that’s tickled by truth; b. you’ve mentioned your work before, including some expectations of a standard, and, I believe, related difficulties with your co-workers?; and c. we were just talking about honesty.

Hmm? What did you say? I did not hear ya.
