A thought to pass on...

Wow, what a nice surprise! I was given a Thinking Blogger Award by Susan Gets Native.
I had never heard of this, probably an admission that confirms how very new to blogging I really am! After meeting Julie Zickefoose 5 weeks ago and hearing her invitation to tune into her blog, I decided to give it a try. I'm finding so many knowledgeable people, so many encouraging people, so many inspiring people, so many helpful people-- it's an honor to be accepted as having written something someone found of value.
But, most of the bloggers I've begun to read have already received this award, probably many times over. And, as new as I am, I feel a little funny "giving" an award to someone else who has so much blogging history they could run circles around me.
So, maybe the best contribution I can make is to say this:
I really enjoy spending time at these sites, and if you are reading this post, make your next stop one of these!

Endment is a site full of original poetry and wonderful photography--as good as a coffee table book.

Natural Notes 3 has the greatest bird photos out there. You've heard, "a bird in the hand is worth...."--that's this site.

A Passion for Nature is from an Audubon Center in western NY (where we used to hike!)--a dose of the familiar for me.

And, lovely dark and deep is about the Mohawk Hudson area of upstate NY (where I grew up!)--a double dose of the familiar!

Though not really a blog, I like to snoop around at treehugger--all the latest on everything environmental.

And, there you have it. If you were named and if you would like to participate in this meme, please choose five of the blogs that make you think, and please put the following participation rules in your post:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).

Like others , I am thrilled that you decided " give it a try". Your posts indeed have value ---because they make me think, smile,laugh, be happy, have perspective ,think some more, and reflect on those things that really MATTER. The Award was meant for people like you -- bravo !!
