UBC Day 28 - ABC of me and Quintet of Radiance Award

Often writing is such a lonely pursuit and you wonder if anyone is even reading your efforts or even cares in this busy, frantic, distracted world. You sweat over each word and revise again and again, while all you hear is the gentle chirp of crickets in the background. You wonder what you’re doing it for and if it really matters. 

That’s why receiving an award is much appreciated. Being acknowledged by fellow blogger/writing friends is always such a boost. Thank you to Carol Graham (Great last name by the way! ;)) for nominating me for the Quintet of Radiance award. What fun! 

Check out Carol’s wonderful blog Battered Hope.


Carol is always thought provoking, uplifting, funny, entertaining and touching in her posts.

One of the rules for this award is to describe yourself using the letters of the alphabet. You know how much I love writing rhyme so of course I did my alphabet about me in a poetic rhyming style. Woohoo! Narcissism rules. OH YEEEEHHHH! Just kidding! 

Artsy Fartsy, that’s our Cat 
Bashful or Brash, she’s a total Brat, 
Creative and Catty, yes that’s her 
A Dreamer who likes to growl and purr, 
Emotional and Erratic, Funloving and Frantic 
Goofy and Honest with the occasional antic, 
Cat is an Introvert but likes a good joke 
Klutzy and Loyal, she’ll give you a poke, 
Mellow and Nosy, Outrageous and a Prude 
She’s Queen of her own life and sometimes quite Rude, 
Cat’s Sentimental and a Tough old gal 
She’s Unusual and Vague but always a pal, 
Warm and eXpressive And always Young at heart, 
Cat’s got a Zest for life That sets her apart. 

Another rule is to nominate some other bloggers. 
I would like nominate fellow bloggers:
