Judith Heartsong has bestowed upon me the Inspirational Blogger Award, which is rather like the Thinking Blogger Award, only it rewards, you know, inspiration. I'm tremendously flattered, inasmuch as I find it amazing anyone would be inspired by my blatherings in this space, but hey, I've always found it prudent to undervalue my own contributions to as great a degree as possible. And really, I'm glad that it wasn't called the Perspirational Blogger Award. (Which, in normal summertime temps, I could win in a walk, to be honest. Hence the fact that I generally never wear the overalls between May and September.)
So where was I? Well, as part of the Inspirational Blogger gig, I now have to name five recipients myself. The following inspire me (as do many others):
:: Belladonna's Mind Muffins, whose spirit of life-as-adventure (or slapstick!) makes her blog a daily read of mine.
:: Mrs. Mental Multivitamin, whose simple three-word philosophy might have been admired by Moses (it would, after all, have fit onto a single -- and smaller -- stone tablet).
:: Erin, who likes words.
:: I very much doubt she'll accept this tag, but I find Dorcasina's blogging terribly inspiring, in the face of circumstances that I wish weren't so.
:: He'd probably think it weird, but PZ Myers's fiery commitment to science inspires me.
So there we go. Inspiring, no?
