Over two months back, Ann at All Write with Coffee handed over the 'From Me To You" Award, only she called it the "From Me To You (Picasso)" Award, and gave it to me because she liked some of the photographs I had posted that week!
I'm exercising my poetic license, and am passing it on to bloggers who touch the heart with the visual images they create -
Al of Publish or Perish
Heather of I'm not Hannah
Faith of Sacred Dirt
Fifi of Fififlowers
Fiona of On a Quirky Quest with Lady Fi
Jan of Crazy Jane
Marjorie of Everything Emerald
Patricia of Patricia Stoltey
SueAnn of SueAnn's Journey
Each is an incredible artist, and I salute them all.
And here's a photograph of a flower that bloomed in my "garden" earlier this week. One of the several varieties of jasmine, Juhi, with their mild fragrance always take me back to my childhood.
My thank you comment disappeared! I'll try again: many thanks for this award - I'm honoured. I saltue you right back - thanks for such insightful writing.
Congrats on the award and thanks for some great new links to check out. I love the photo of the jasmine, so enjoy the smell of that flower.
Thoughts in Progress
Thank you, Rayna, that's so sweet.
And congratulations on receiving the award -- you have wonderful photos but you also have a way of giving us word pictures that make us feel as though we've been all the places you talk about. The jasmine photo makes me want to lean over and inhale the scent.
Do you remember the Bhimsen Joshi & Manna Dey song- ketaki gulab juhi champak ban phooley?
That's what your beautiful photograph evoked.
I've loved all your recent posts, just been caught up with too much stuff to comment on each. Loved the mega-post especially:)
Congratulations for your richly deserved award and thank you for passing it on to me...I accept it humbly and as you know that's hard for me! Ha! I'm having a struggling day - did my thousand words but the plot is UNWIELDLY. Going to go take the pooch for a stroll and blow the dust outa my brainpan...
Congrats on your award, and thanks for the lovely pict. I can almost smell the Jasmine!

Great photo - I can almost smell the aroma! Congratulations on your much deserved award.
Congrats on your awards!!
And thank you!
Found you of course through the interconnections here blogging. Glad I did. You remind me that I met a wonderful man years ago here in Virginia (USA) who did acupressure on my brain-injured daughter. He also taught us many things about India food and other cultural things. We loved him. So nice to meet you.
Congrats Rayna on receiving the award.
I love that flower photo - so pretty :)
Rayna, your blog is poetic in picture, word and soul food. I'm so glad you were honored with the award. And thank you for sharing it with me and these other lovely writers!
