I often feel I have great difficulties engaging my brain. You know we are only supposed to use a fractional amount of its capacity? Well, I'm under the impression that mine takes the piss by obscuring access to vital functions such as memory so rendering utilisation extremely tricky. What isn't hidden away under lock and key (lost) is frazzled by circular arguments with my pre-ado 10-yr old son.
Imagine, then, dear reader(s), my stunned surprise at being nominated by a very superior blogger Roads of Stone for the Thinking Blogger Award. Roads' blog is one where you go to meander down country lanes, agonise empathetically over miles of a marathon course, or feel your hair blow as he describes whizzing downhill on the London to Brighton cycle race. Marvellous stuff! Anyway, thanks Roads!
The award brings with it a “spread the joy” request to share, by tagging five other blogs - those which make me think.
So here they are:
Dream and Daemons written by ColinB whose blog is packed full of serious information and opinions on various subjects from the use of sulphites in wine to the usefulness of university courses.
Minter Dial who is a mathematician and therefore an alien... He's an American who lives in Paris and his blog provides analysis of American business, Wimbledon, footie, film revues and so on. An eclectic read and always excellently written.
Suspect Paki; a Londoner and a Muslim whose insight and honesty on his issues packs a definite punch.
Colin Randall's blog France Salut! which is a bit of a cheat because he is a real journalist and is paid to write thoughtful stuff. However, he is not paid to write Salut! so I feel justified in nominating him.
Blue Vicar in which Anne relates her life and experiences and offers ideas and suggestions to inspire others to write.
Congratulations to all five of the above, and if you choose to participate, here’s the fine print:
If, and only if, I tagged your blog, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
Link here so that people can find the origin of your award.
On On !
