The Versatile Blogger Award
Great! I just received the Versatile Blogger Award from Vatche, who just happens to be one of the youngest, most determined writers I know. His books are not in stores, but I assure you they will be. Just give him time.
Now, in giving this award, which several others also received, Vatche says that there are certain “rules” attached. My immediate answer to this, of course, is that I will not follow the rules. Doing so is completely contrary to my nature. Vatche, I’m sorry, but I can’t follow the rules. But something tells me you will understand.
One of the rules is that I should share seven things about myself. Really, Vatche? Must I reveal seven more? Were I to do so, especially all at once, that might be perceived as cruelty. No, I’d best stick to my camouflage method of drawings and poems. Again, I know you will understand.
I’m also supposed to pass the award along to fifteen bloggers, but I’m afraid I can’t do that either. I refuse to accept such a limit. I will only leave someone out and then hate myself later. Why do that when I can cut to the chase and hate myself now?
Vatche, you are one of a kind. I thank you for this award, and will do my best to live up to your reason for giving it. It’s an honor to know you.
