“We may lose and we may win”…

So, in the midst of a busy week that has thrown up more questions than answers on a personal matter, this blog was nominated for an award. Nominated twice actually, which really made me smile and was quite humbling.

It is not the first time; you may remember that previously, the lovely Nina from http://wordsthatflowlikewater.wordpress.com/2013/06/06/inspiring-the-very-inspiring-blogger-award/  Nominated this blog for the “Very Inspiring Blog” award – which was really nice of her.

This achievement has now been followed up by both Richard from http://richardankerswrites.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/the-versatile-blogger-award/ and Christine from http://crissyb315.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/the-versatile-blogger-award/ nominating this blog for the “Versatile blogger award”.  Which again, is really nice and I am truly humbled.

Both these awards come with things that need to be done and I have to admit, I am pretty poor at these – however, the fact that these awards come from wordpress peers does mean a lot and whilst I have little of interest about myself to do any sort of list, I do feel the need to spread the word of others blogs.

The below are 10 blogs that I read and follow – and I would encourage you to try them out for size – these are just a snapshot as I follow a huge amount – so if your blog isn’t below, it is not reflection on you – more an opportunity.

Please leave a comment and let people know where they can find you – this could be an opportunity for all of us to build up our wordpress base? Not sure if this will even work, but don’t be shy – we all want to be read – even if we do not think what we produce is worth reading!

So, here is a snapshot in addition to the 3 above and in no order:

So, a song to leave this ramble – I watched an Eagles documentary last night and really enjoyed it, so have a few tunes floating round in my head – this one is a message for the weekend – “Take it easy” – no more words needed – well, unless you wish to comment!

Enjoy

“And this loneliness won’t leave me alone”…

~

They all turned against me…
My family and my friends…
Treated me like an outcast…
And never made amends…
 
Now it’s much too late…
Life’s passed by too fast…
So I sit here reminiscing…
With another vodka in my glass…
 
They took the moral high ground…
But who were they to judge…
They were no better than me…
Yet held such a bitter grudge…
 
They couldn’t see my viewpoint…
Didn’t take the time to ask why…
Only heard her side of the story…
Never gave me the right to reply…
 
She played the perfect victim…
Claimed rape was my souls intent…
But she gave me the come on…
Partly responsible to some extent…
 
You know that type of girl…
The sexually teasing kind…
They make you think they want it…
But then advances are declined…
 
They laugh in your fucking face…
Make you feel stupid, small and sad…
But this one felt so different…
Said I was driving her crazy, so very mad…
 
So we went back to her place…
It was intense and just insane…
She never tried to stop me…
Or had reason to complain…
 
It was hard and it was rough…
She gave as good as she got…
Yet not Twenty Four hours later…
I was detained by the cops…
 
Innocent till proven guilty…
Do not make me laugh…
No avoiding the sex crime stigma…
Branded within a minute and a half…
 
Then they turned against me…
My family and my so called friends…
The charges were eventually dropped…
But the whispering never ends…
 
My life is almost over…
Filled with sorrow and regret…
She had the softest lips I ever did kiss…
And an Angelic face I’ll never forget…
