Edenland certainly tops my list just because she is so freakin' honest in all that she writes. She is raw, and "there" and I've been "there" too.
I love to read The Yellow Prose of Texas just because she is so right on the money in her portrayal of Texans and all their quirks. And they are a quirky bunch. Terrible drivers too. I never had an issue with road rage before I came to Texas, and now it seems to have become a problem for me that I should truly seek out a 12-step program to resolve. Except, I'm sure I would run over my sponsor in a heartbeat.
I've also started to read Pearl, Why you little... because I just haven't figured out yet if she is really creative, insane or if her cat truly talks to her. Either way, it brings a smile to my face because if cats could talk, I could imagine some of the ones I had having the same conversations with me.
Chris at Serendipitous is such an awesome photographer that I love these glimpses into her world. Especially her photographs of wild birds. For some reason, they give me such a peaceful feeling, and I miss having birds and feeders in my back yard. If I couldn't have a fish tank of tropical fish to relax and hypnotize me during the day (and I don't, which also explains why I'm so stressed most of the time) I could sit at a window and just watch the birds at a feeder all day. I don't have one of those either, but one of these days I will again, and cannot wait for the hummingbirds to begin to arrive.
I pop in to read Toni's comments at ChickChat because I think we are secret soul sisters, and if we ever met, Australia would never be the same... the trouble we could cause... I wonder if Australian jails are more comfortable than Texas ones? Not that I've seen the inside of a jail anywhere, but there is always a first time, and while it isn't on my bucket list... I could pencil it in near the bottom.
Amanda at Unfolding Creatively just makes me jealous with all of her talents, compassion, and bravery. I've wanted to visit India since reading my first M.M. Kaye novel The Far Pavilions! But her artwork is so inspiring, empowering, and positive. I love the piece I won from her and have it featured prominently in my writing room... where I don't spend enough time writing my next novel. I do spend far too much time blogging, however, so perhaps will just one day put all of this random babble in print.
