Yesterday I published eight posts, which is more that I ever did before. I started off with Time for Fandango to Unpack which was written for Stream of Consc Saturday and it did well getting 8 comments and 15 likes. Next I wrote Meaning in My Life for Bee’s Love Is In Da Blog challenge and it was about the Chicago song ‘You’re the Inspiration’ and it received 8 comments and 14 likes. After that I wrote Back Off Jack for FFE Daily Adage and I shared some deep insights about reality, which may have been too deep foe most people as this post got no comments, but it did get 11 likes. I moved on to the Saturday Mix where I wrote some nonsense words in a post that I titled With a Rebel Yell and it got 2 comments and 14 likes. I decided to tackle the Teresa Grabs Daily Writing Prompt, which was a picture prompt and I wrote Hardships of the Fur Trade which got 7 comments and 12 likes. Next I visited the daily/weekly/monthly prompts that are posted regularly here on WordPress and I wrote a post Get Up and Dance to satisfy the Daily Spur, FOWC, Monthly Writing Prompts, New Daily Post, Ragtag Community, Three Things Challenge, Weekly Prompts, Word of the Day Challenge and that got 9 comments and 16 likes. I took on an easy one next writing for Friday Flashback and I posted A Day Late where I discussed the song ‘Indian Love Call’ and this post got 2 comments and 6 likes. Wrapping this up I wrote my Song Lyric Sunday prompt post Personal Pronouns and that always gets a lot of comments and likes.
To top off my day yesterday Lisa Coleman of oureyesopenblog.wordpress.com nominated me for the Bee Love Award, because she said that I am an inspiration to her. “How sweet it is” in the words of Jackie Gleason, or the James Taylor song. I found out that this award was started by Yeka, and it is one that I have not received yet and I also found these guidelines:
1. Attach the BEE LOVE AWARD LOGO on top of your post.
2. Ping back to YBP, IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE.
3. Thank your fellow blogger who nominated you.
4. Share your Definition of LOVE and How You Live Out LOVE.
5. Nominate your fellow bloggers who live out love and inspiration on WP. (Love knows no limits, so nominate as many fellow bloggers you’d like to shine your light on!)
I will start off by thanking Lisa and then I will try to share my definition of love and how I live out love. Love is an intense feeling of deep affection that encompasses a range of strong and positive emotional and mental states, from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection and to the simplest pleasure, well at least according to what I found on the internet. I guess I have always thought of love as being a romantic attraction that includes sexual desire, but it is way more than that. I love writing posts and that has nothing to do with attraction or sexual desire, so this is complex. I guess the Four Aces tried to sum this up in their hit song.
I have no idea how I live out love, so maybe I am not worthy of this award, kind of like a Wayne’s World meets Alice Cooper thing.
Seriously, which is something that I rarely do, I try to be kind to others. I feel that if I am good to others that karma will return it to me and I pay it forward and if it does not catch up with me in this lifetime, then at least I probably won’t return as a cockroach in the next. I am going to pass on the nominations part of these guidelines, as I hate to pester other people, but if you want it, then come and get it, as I nominate everyone who reads my blog.
