Michelle at Putting My Feet In The Dirt has wonderful prompts for each day of August. Today’s prompt is delights and deliciousness.
I envy people who are multi-talented. (Not envy in a bad way.) There are many bloggers who are much more than just amazingly great writers who delight us daily with their pizzazz and talents. There are bloggers with great knowledge about flowers, music, photography, cooking, and all sorts of info beyond my reach. I can, and do, spend many hours reading blogs that enlighten me and make me feel connected to the authors.
After reading about and listening to music on blogs I am often uplifted out of a funk, into joy and happiness. I adore finding new (to me) artists. As I listen to my iPod in my car, Sirius at home, and CDs when I can, I rarely hear anything from the last decade or more. Blogs have expanded my music range.
When I see all the wonderful photography, I can’t wait to feel safe enough to take my camera to a camera store to get it fixed. I have my phone of course, but it’s not the same.
When bloggers share their flowers and gardens, I am able to enter their world and enjoy it with them. Knowing that they can see and feel the gifts of nature, makes me also enjoy my little gardening spots.
When I see and read about the great foods, bloggers make it makes me want to share in the deliciousness of the cuisine. This shelter in place has meant I am making more meals than ever. I am often prompted to try something new because of a spark initiated by a blogger. On the hot days we are having now the simpler the better. I am back to sandwiches for lunches and that is OK with me.
Blogging is such a positive community with much to learn and enjoy. I am so glad I am a member of this tribe.
