Thank you, Eunice Miller, for nominating me for this award.  It is an honor and a privilege to accept it. Readers, please stop by to visit Eunice’s beautiful and inspiring blog at  http://nutsfortreasure.wordpress.com/ Eunice has been one of my greatest supporters. She is always there to comment, encourage, share and even teach me some techy stuff about blogging. Needless to say, she is very deserving of this award. The WordPress Family Award is reserved for folks in Cyberspace who are  unceasingly kind, sympathetic, encouraging, and open to laughter—and who keep each other going by sharing, commenting, and making personal connections even though they may actually be virtual strangers.

  • Display the award logo on your blog.
  • Link back to the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family.
  • Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them.

I want to say a special “Thank You!” to ALL of the outstanding bloggers who so faithfully support and encourage me here at http://www.4writersandreaders.com/. I invite everyone to visit these wonderful blogs.

Clouds and Seasons


Bette A. Stevens:

Simply sensational pictures, beautifully captured in Ivon Prefontaine’s poetry!

Kathy’s niece took these pictures of boomers the other night west of Edmonton. Kathy and I talked about what we saw in the clouds. There is a lot in there and yesterday, as I walked, I understood clouds meaning something different during different seasons of life.

The spring of childhood,

Clouds were homes

Where

My imagined friends

Came to life

Nursery rhymes, fairy tale, cartoons

People lived there.

Storm clouds overhead

Please, I need to finish the lawn

Or there goes the BBQ tonight

I hear my voice: “Hurry home before it rains; so much to do.”

In autumn

We view

But, don’t…
