Yep, I’m pretty amazed,,,but it’s true.  So many thanks to Srijana Kattel who has nominated LiveFree2SailFast for a “Sunshine Blogger Award” Nomination.  I’d like to be flippant here and tell you truthfully that she really must not know me too well,,,,,cause I’m not always a ray of sunshine.  What a humble honor for this little blog to be nominated for it’s very first blogger award.  There is some humility to this,,,,,cause this blog has reached out to folks all over the world and they have reached back, which I think is the most interesting and rewarding part of the blogging experience.  Srijana,,,,thank you so much for this nomination.  I had to think through this for a day or so to comprehend that someone would want to cite this blog an award like this,,,,it’s now a burden of trust to keep up the writing that motivated someone to nominate the blog in the first place.

Before I go on with my blathering,,,,please make sure you go check out Srijana Kattel’s blog.  While it says “ramblings of an empty mind”, I can assure you it’s not.  In fact, for anyone to write some of the things she does with the clarity of spirit that comes through in her posts,,,,it seems to be at a philosophical level at times.  And she knows hardship and pain better than most of us do,,,,cause she’s living it at times.  Don’t think for a moment that her posts are not real,,,,,cause you’re going to read the real world in them if you take the time to check out her blog.
