…yeez all know very well there are Awards, and then there are AWARDS… Blog Land has plenty of them… and long may they continue to proliferate… the majority are great fun, and usually always a pleasure to receive, especially when they come from yer fellow quill-scrapers… yesterday, I was the proud, and very humbled (yes, Mabel, even me… humbled) recipient of an AWARD I’d never seen before… the Written Acts of Kindness Award… it will take prominent pride of place on my virtual mantelpiece… the LUVLY and ever-generous Cate Russell-Cole saw fit to bring a seldom-seen blush to my wan complexion by naming me as an Awardee… in my turn, I have decided to initiate a few of these over time… as it happens, off the top of my head I could think of a least a dozen worthies for the Award, but will start off with one today… the magnificent Susan Toy…
…on a personal basis, Susan has been one of my staunchest supporters, encouragers, and a downright great pal over the past year or so… but it doesn’t stop there… this fine Lady bangs the literary drum for many and varied authors, covering a massively broad range of genres… her blog islandeditions.wordpress.com is a joy to read… recently, in the Caribbean, Susan was afflicted by a nasty local illness, chikungunya, which is as malevolent as it sounds… notwithstanding that, her stream of profiling for other writers continued unabated on her Reading Recommendations page… for me, Susan is the equivalent of the Dame of the Literary Empire… thank you for you, m’Lady… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!…
