A few days ago Christy English gave me the Sunshine Award for those “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” As I write on this gloomy and sunless day in upstate NY, I thank Christy for this dose of Sunshine. My good friend lights up my life with her unwavering joy, and with her blog, A Writer's Life: Working with the Muse at: http://www.christyenglish.com/
And now, to paraphrase Monty Python, She who receives the Sunshine Award must answer me these questions three, ere the other side she see. OK, it's nine questions, but Sir Galahad had trouble counting too:
|Ride 'em, Jo Ann!|
Favorite Color: Sky blue. It's a color I crave even more than chocolate, especially between November and May.
Favorite Animal: I love them all, but I don't remember an age when I wasn't in love with horses.
Favorite Number: 5. I can't tell you why, but the answer is probably at my fingertips.
Favorite Non-alcoholic Drink: Tea - hot, cold, or any other temperature.
Facebook or Twitter?: Facebook. I love birds and birdsong, but Twitter hasn't grabbed me.
|Rebel Puritan and The Reputed Wife|
Your Passion: Herodias Long. I've spent ten years writing about that woman's bravery and persistence, and hope that she has passed those traits down to me, her 8th great-granddaughter.
Giving or getting presents: There is nothing like a present to brighten the day!
Favorite Day: Monday, believe it or not. Nothing on my schedule and all things are possible.
Favorite Flowers: Hyacinths. Winter really is over when they appear, and they smell divine!
And now, to announce the next winners of the Sunshine Award:
Ginger Myrick, author of the amazing historical fiction novels WELSH HEALER and EL REY
Deborah Swift, author of THE GILDED LILY and THE LADY'S SLIPPER, and her wonderful blog:
