Shine On and Reality Award

Posted on 13 Comments

The very talented and insightful Uzoma has nominated my blog, shawnrjones12 for the Shine On and Reality Blog Awards.  I am especially honored to get this nomination from Uzoma because I greatly admire his work. He has mastered both concision and rhythm in his writing.  He has a vast vocabulary, yet he also manages to weave together common words, giving them more meaning than they would have standing alone.  His similes and metaphors are symphonically placed on the page like notes of an alluring song.  Please stop by his page and enjoy the music. Uzoma, thank you so much for nominating me.  I have only been blogging for two weeks, and your encouragement has been invaluable!  Blessings to you!

    Oh-oh. Your ‘random’ is quite interesting. Pitbulls are rare around here. Mine is an Alsatian and is almost four years old.

    Todays as always, you words elate my spirit. I’m my greatest critic and at times I fear it does me more harm than good. Thanks for visiting my blog whenever it’s updated. Shawn, you’re also a gifted poet and writer–never forget that. Blessings to you and your family as well!
