Thinking Blogger Nominations
Princess Haiku was nominated for a Thinking Blogger Award by, Synchronicity of Indeterminacy.
After deliberation, Princess Haiku's unveils her own List of Nominees.
Tangled Up in L'Heure Bleue: The Tales of Bob Dylan's Cat; a gentle, musing, commentary on the joys of everyday life and is a rich archive for information related to the iconic music of Bob Dylan.
Julian Peglar- Journal of a Creativist.This is a new blog that gets my vote for high potential. "I work with many media and so to describe myself as an artist or poet or writer or investor - it just doesn’t cover everything I do. Créativist does. It is all encompassing and it has a certain qualité. Here is a portal through which you can view my ideas and thoughts on the world. I would also be happy to receive comments from others who may find that they too, are a Créativist, in this marvellous and incredible world."
Flowerville-Secret Edition since 1846. The discourse of this blog, written by Antonia is delightfully poetic, erudite and at times even a bit obscure. Part of it's charm is in its mysterious unveiling of secretive thoughts and intuitive mind. This excerpt from a post illustrates this. "This name is connected to some sort of consciousness, some sort of aura. The aura nevertheless has its origin in the words, in the music, but it is transported to the name and therefore the name possesses this aura, it shines."
Blue Tea- Blue Tea is one of the most aesthetically beautiful and intriguing textiles of mythos, art and folklore I have found online. A phrase bluewyvern uses to describe a recent entry on her blog applies to her entire space as well. "..A combination of breathtaking locations, masks, props, a dreamlike palette and a perfect sense of composition to create imaginative, storytelling scenes."
Moon River continues to be one of my favorite blogs. Her space is a cornucopia of maps, fine art, poetry and sophisticated musings belonging to the virtual future. In her description she is, "Night Traveling, Day Dreaming, while Mapping my Escapisms, Tracing Love." Moon River has introduced me to several contemporary artists and the poetry of Fernando Pessoa. Be warned though, Moon River isn't afraid to look at the harsher aspects of reality and sometimes it's a sharp bite. This space can dazzle.
Now, is a blog written by Camille; a woman rising to the challenge of personal transformation. Camille's open-hearted honesty, capacity for insight and care for others are an inspiration to all of us. The prelude to her blog says it all. "Arriving in the town of Santa Cruz CA on a bus, my friend Starling and I decided to take on new identities. I chose the name Camille because in college people had called me a chameleon. I changed my name to Camille, bought a motorcycle and rode down the coast to Los Angeles, where I spent the next year. Many exciting adventures later, some of which I write about in this blog."
Occam's Razor Library: A bibliophile's satirical quest to list all books making reference to the word, "razor." The first thing that comes to mind in describing occam's space is razor wit. In his words, "Anyone know of a good mental institution? No, ... too bad. We'll just keep at it, then."
