Blush. Duh. I have me an award.

Drumroll… or something.

In the spirit of graciousness that Manujee conferred this award, I bequeath-


Mago the magician, for opening up a pandora’s box of people and places

Quin’s fmd, for being what she is, just quin!

Babyisland, and the three leeetle ones on an island someplace

Supermom Crustybeef

Portia who grooves on, so she does, and the great art hidden someplace in the archives.

Amit scintillates (when he’s not copy-pasting, that is.)

Paulo the wise, for making me think.

Sorry. my bad.

mago said...

JA!
I am sorry for being late in the line. You deserve this award, yes you do.
Excuse me please, it's late in the night or better early in the morning and I'm tired. Your writing sometimes is the only reason to start that machine. With few words you paint, evoce (hervorrufen, evocare) a picture, give an impression of something you saw and make your reader see and feel. That is art. It flows directly out of your life. I thank you for that.

As someone once said- I try.
Thank you.
