Sarah and/or Helen at Toronto Gardens have graciously nominated me for a MeMe award. More a reveal–those 7 tidbits and 7 links below–than an award, it none the less indicates that someone is interested in what I have to say so I’m proud. Isn’t it all about meme..me anyway?
With that in mind, here goes…
There are a few simple Meme rules:
- Link back to the person who gave you the award.
- Reveal seven things about yourself.
- Choose seven other blogs to nominate, and post a link to them.
- Let each of your choices know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.
- And finally, let the tagger know, when your post is up
Here’s the 7 tidbits…
- It’s taken me all this time (a bit more than a half century) to be comfortable with myself–warts and all (I still struggle with weight–Does this blog make me look fat?)
- Angst overtakes me at some point in the design process–every time. I’ve come to realize it’s part of the process
- I don’t suffer fools
- I feel guilty that I don’t pay more attention to my own garden which is a perpetual mess
- I would like to walk away from a project someday completely and absolutely satisfied with every detail of the end result (see #2 above)
- I swear like a sailor–frequently
- Random connectivity fascinates me
Here’s the 7 new Meme nominees…and my reasons for nomination. I’ll be back after this commercial break.
- On the Way to My Shoes –she knows the real deal and struggles with life out in the open across several platforms. Her blog has made me cry.
- Finding Design with Chloe –she gives me insight into the way another designer in NJ thinks–so few of us communicate it!
- A Verdant Life–he is passionate about his work, honest in his opinions and varied in his choice of topics
- Blue Planet Garden Blog–she helps me see landscape design beyond my own four season climate
- Weavin Demon–she is late to find her creative outlet. I knew at a young age so it’s interesting for me to read her perspective and watch her struggle with it
- Gaita Interiors–for showing all of us that there are great options no matter what your budget
- Studio G–for being the only landscape design blog of its kind
There are several other blogs that I read regularly that I didn’t include here for a variety of reasons–mostly because I believe that the writers of those wouldn’t want to particpate in something like me…me…me.
