The Imagine Award

the-imagine-award1

Thanks to Sue Vincent for nominating me for The Imagine Award.  Jenn Mulherin, who created this award, has a blog called My Fibrotastic Life,   The award was made to “recognize bloggers who express their passion and dedication towards their blogs through their creativity.”

Sue’s blog certainly qualifies in this regard.  I love her imaginative writing about the ancient, Celtic mystery schools, her evocation of the lovely British Isles as well as strength of her prose  (though I wonder how much credit should go to her dog.)  Sue is also an artist.  My favorites are her watercolors and encaustic paintings.

As part of the deal in accepting this honor, I nominate 5 bloggers who I think qualify for the honor.

The poetry of Wuji Seshat Nibada is a celebration of ethereal beauty.  And he seems to come out with another every day-that’s dedication.  For me, his work recalls the simple elegance of Japanese poetry.

In art, there’s Citta di Cartone, or Cardboard Towns.  His cityscapes are executed in a deft, graphic shorthand with a unerring eye for atmosphere and texture.

Whatever category James Fielden fits into (maybe none-he is unique,) I nominate him for his serenely beautiful meditations on light and love.  As a bonus, the recordings of his radiant prose come through loud and clear through the aural channel.

   The Runningfather Blog. Jim Aldrich’s blog is a revelation.  His poetry and prose conjures subtle spiritual states with concision and flair.  I am looking forward to he second installment of his chilling, dystopic vision: Bishop’s Burden.

Then there’s John Wreford, Photographer whose heart-wrenching work from the front lines shows and tells of the brave souls who live in Syria.  While John’s reportage may not be considered “imaginative,” I include it here because of his dedication, and because it rouses compassion for the suffering of our brothers and sisters in that war-torn region.  Maybe there is no greater work of imagination than that.

To accept the Imagination Award you need to:

1. Copy and paste the Imagine Award into your post.
