Thanks to author Lois Winston for giving Write Here, Write Now a Sunshine Award, which is for “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” Lois, or rather the heroine of her Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mysteries, writes the Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers blog.

Like many such online honors, the Sunshine Award asks recipients to do a few things:
  • Thank the person who gave you the award in your blog post.
  • Answer a few questions (see below)
  • Pass on the award to deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs.

Sunshine Asks & I Answer:

Favorite Color: Bright red-orange - it's energizing and supposed to indicate creativity in the person who loves it.

Favorite Animal: Oh, come on - that's like asking a mother to state publicly which is her favorite child. I don't think so!

Favorite Number: Really? I'm supposed to have a favorite number?

Favorite Non-alcoholic Drink: Water. Okay, maybe cranberry juice. But I usually opt for water.

Facebook or Twitter: Yes.

Your Passion: Just one? No no no. Life is much more interesting than just one passion! Here are a few of mine...
  • dogs & cats (big surprise, huh?) and other animals
  • writing (ooh, another surprise!)
  • books, essays, poems - anything well-written
  • visual art that lifts us up -- paintings, drawings, textiles, photographs
  • travel - the world is made of beautiful places, creatures, vegetation, and people
Giving or Getting Presents: Giving. But not for holidays. I love to find the perfect, unexpected something for a friend.

Favorite Day: Today. (Live once, repeat.)

Favorite Flowers: Oh, my, another silly one. Sorry, I cannot pick just one. Here are a few: Mexican sunflower, zinnia, orchid, bird of paradise, camellia, jasmine, and a field I used to visit by a lake in Indiana that filled in late summer with purple ironweed, white Queen Ann's lace, and yellow black-eyed susans. Spectacular!

Finally, these are the fantastic bloggers I'm tagging for this award. Check them out:
