Community of Friends

Rachel, the radiant spirit at Lessons Learned has given me the Community Blogger Award. This one clearly belongs to all of us because there is no such thing as a community of one.

Rachel is a wonderful writer and artist, and if you don't know her yet, you are in for a great treat.

Thank you, Rachel! I'm so glad we found each other.

As soon as I formed the thought that I would have to pass it on to someone else, one name came to me.

Chani.

Chani at Thailand Gal embodies community. Everything she posts is designed to exchange ideas with her readers on how we can all be better, more conscious citizens of the world. And she manages to do it without preachiness, but with humor, warmth and elegance.


I know that awards go against the grain with Chani, who eschews anything that smacks of competitiveness, but I think these blogger awards are simply a means to acknowledge each other, virtual wing-dipping or proffering bouquets of beautiful flowers.

In honoring those we admire, we grow more like them.

So man up and deal with it, Chani.

Peace.

Claudia,

Well, I thought I had lost you all when I destroyed most of my blog. And I was really struck by what a HUGE loss it would be.

Rachel,

Chani is a natural for this one.
