The Sunshine Award from Italy!


I want to thank Me at Decomondo for nominating me for this award.

18 gennaio 2010

Ho ricevuto un fiore - The Sunshine Award

Pablo Picasso:

"Everything you can imagine is real."

Those who receive The Sunshine Award are required to pass the award onto bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogosphere.
I am very flattered that Me considers me "inspirational".

Thank you, Me..

These are her words:

"All of our life is soaked with creativity even if it is art to be its major outlet. It is nestled in each of us and, if properly stimulated, bursts out. We need to take care of it, to strengthen it and to grow it into its beautiful and precious flourishing.

It's my pleasure to give over The Sunshine Award, the flower of creativity, to bloggers whose positive attitude, motivation, improvement and creativity at 360 degrees I admire.

lakeviewer - Sixtyfivewhatnow

L'esperienza di vita di lakeviewer ha dei punti in comune con la mia, in quanto entrambe facciamo parte degli espatriati che hanno lasciato il loro paese in cerca di orizzonti nuovi.

Amo leggere i suoi racconti sull'infanzia a Venosa, città di Orazio, nei pressi della quale anch'io ho vissuto per un paio d'anni; mi piace la sua vivacità e la creatività con la quale affronta la vita.

The lakeviewer's life experience has some points in common with mine, we both are part of the expatriates who have left their country in search of new horizons.

I love to read her memories about Venosa, the birth town of Horace, near which I also have lived for a couple of years; I like her vitality and creativity in facing the life."

The rules for accepting this award:

- Put the logo on your blog or within your post.

- Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.

How fitting that such an award came from Italy, and well deserved too.

As others have stated, how wonderful the award came to you from Italy, plus you both are comfortable conversing in your native language.

Congrats. I am catching up on reading as I am exhausted to get back to my tail of Get Me to the Church on Time. Too tired. Hint: the next episodes has a fiance MIA (missing in action...i.e., from Virginia to Texas)

Oh, my dear, you are most deserving of this sunshine award because you are totally capable of bringing brightness to even these stormy CA days. I treasure your blog so much and look forward to seeing what the day brings from Oregon! You also steer me to some other wonderful blogs...not that I can afford to spend another moment at this computer! Congratulations!

Janna Qualman said...

Rosaria, indeed you are a ray of sunshine (first typed with a typo: sunshit) for your followers and visitors. Oh! and your comments! What light they pass on! Interesting that my word verification for this comment is "minded"...for once, a real word and one that applies to my friend Rosaria, a mindful woman.
