Many thanks to Beparvah for the consideration of this award, and for nominating me. I am thrilled, to say the least.
Firstly I’d like to mention how much I have enjoyed reading his posts, which contain various layers of meaning that capture a deep mental, and emotional anguish. In particular, they give expression to, with ease, the intensity that had created them; and, which is the depth that drew me in. His work has a quality that takes you into the various and unbound recesses of a deeper interior; in its state of loss; and in the experience of gain; and in the hope found; which are balanced between despairing moments of darkness, contrasted with essential illuminations that Beparvah distinctly portrays in his narrative.
Like great explorations, or perhaps excavations, which are inwardly headed, Beparvah’s delivery, contains an ‘honesty’ and ‘genuinity ’, that a few might possess; revealing with it an emotional and psychological terrain, which not all might be able to handle, or can do. Because, raw ‘experiences’, are mostly perceived as vulnerabilities, and their exposure, a sign. Particularly in men, and doubly particularly, in certain cultures. Having the courage to include what comes from such depth, in order to make sense of it all, and then, share it with us depicts a ‘Contextual, ’ wisdom and a certain sensitivity. (he chose me too – a very wise choice ;-}ha ha)
I have read many works, which have moved me, and they are all my favourites, but unfortunately I cannot recall them all. But those which stick in mind are, Sha’Tara https://shatara46.wordpress.com/, for her unrelenting energy, passion, conviction, didactic style; and her immediate and arresting narration. I am still glowing from her sacrificial flames – so engulfing was this story Voice from the Other Side: Lessons of the High Priest to Ix’tal. Check it out for your self. The fact that she popped in when my ‘door was ajar’, pleased me to be visited by an exceptional guest. . Next I am brought to https://unbolt.wordpress.com/l, which I have newly discovered. A labyrinth, bolted or unbolted reveals a master at work (if not a minotaur). Maybe a master custodian?. This next onehttp://en.gravatar.com/nonchalantutterings‘, Don’t Leave, in which the cold brilliance of this piece captured in the metaphor eyes glowed with a mettalic lustre, speaks for itself and drives the narrative towards the expectation of where we are led, beautifully delivering us there, with goose bumps! Follow the lustre to find out for yourself, what it is in this brilliant piece of literature. http://en.gravatar.com/wooknightseeks knowledge. His pursuit presents not only the a reading of the text, but newer revelations of prior read texts, providing many altering layers of understanding and meaning…herein containing the expanding elements of his mind and knowledge base, and its potent desire. I love his epic and the leisurely style, which eloquently goades us through his beautiful and well informed critiques, such as in Battling the Iliad and Moby Dick alongside the great depth he offers. And finally, there’s, bookscrazyanagha.wordpress which I find has a transparency about it and a probing into the things that are familiar to us, and are just there, but ther accomodations contains the difficulty. There’s also suspense, mystery, and the pain that often surrounds romantic love.
I want to say a special thank you to Expressive Human KAUSHAL’S PERSPECTIVISM because his platform was my first step of discovery in wordpress.
Again, thank you Beparvah for recognising me, because of the validation that there’s something good about my work, or its approach; and that it is not as bad as I had feared and thought, or at least, that my work (though it contains obvious mistakes) is appreciated ….The nomination has given me a desired boost of confidence in hope – hope. This is reminiscent of the hope contained in your dream: https://wwwinsearchofmyself.wordpress.com/
10 Random facts about me:
- I tend to forget the bad things, and always remember the good, and so I’m never angry with any one beyond an hour or so. I believe this is ‘my’ blessing and a grace – theirs too.
- A bad memory and dwindling vision means I’m likely to repeat everything, meeting and seeing every one, more than once!
- Doors keep opening for me, and I in turn continue to open them for others. What annoys me is when, sometimes, I am mistaken for a porter! :-)?? And/or when there’s an absence of a ‘thank you’ , to which, I react with a huge smile and –”my pleasure”! 🙂
- I HAVE A WARPED SENSE OF HUMOUR.
- I feel vibrant.
- I love people.
- I’ve had some of the greatest experiences in life, with perfect strangers, which have brought me intense joy and pleasure that is unimaginable, and will be with me always. It’s The beauty and grace of this life.
- That’s why my motto is ‘everyone is a friend waiting to be met’
- I am, a very happy person, of a happy nature, and I’ve found out that my (real ) name means happiness. How fitting is that?
- When writing, expression is hard for me. I find that usually projecting my ideas gets lost in the process between the idea and the written word??…But I’m working hard on that though it frustrates me. I can see an improvement. Hurrah!.
