Blogging Award

I’m not sure if you read the comment posted yesterday by Marci Koski, on my post, Striking Balance Through Tadasana? In it, she nominated me for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, in the kindest, most generous way. I am sincerely touched by her gesture. Moreover, I am appreciative that she included me in this wonderful group of readers and bloggers. How great is that--to be a part of a team? I gladly accept the award and want to share information on what it is all about, through today’s two posts. Thanks so much Marci, maven of Fuzzy Undertones.

Here are the rules for accepting this award:
  1. The Nominee of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award needs to display the logo on his/her post/page and/or sidebar.
  2. To accept, the Nominee must nominate 14 readers they appreciate over a period of 7 days (1 week) – this can be done at any rate during the week. It can be ALL on one day or a few on one day and a few on another day, as I am doing.
  3. The Nominee is required to name his or her Wonderful Team Member Readership Award nominees on a post or on posts during the 7 day (1 week) period.
  4. The Nominee shall make these rules, or amended rules keeping to the spirit of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, known to each reader s/he nominates.
  5. The Nominee must finish this sentence and place it somewhere in his/her acceptance post: “A great reader is…”

About the lovely readers and writers that I've nominated:

There are blogs that have an impact on your day. You wake up, perhaps during a lunch break or after work, you can’t wait to see what that blogger has posted. You may then mull over what they've said for quite a while. Somehow, they've reached out and through the blogosphere, popping into your life. You don’t want that engagement to end there, so you formulate a written response, in the form of a comment, and post it to their blog. Blogging is a community activity. Blogging doesn't work if you are all alone. As bloggers we are keen on communication, be it written or visual, through music and sound, meditative and poetic thoughts, humor or the arts and crafts.

Note to Award Nominees

Nominees, it’s up to you whether or not you accept this award because yes, there is a bit of busy work involved. It is not my attention to stress you out. Just the opposite, I want you to know that I think very highly of what you’re doing, appreciate your visits to my blog, and want to share you with my readers. It is totally up to you whether or not you want to accept this award and pay it forward to those you want to spotlight on your blog.  No worries, if you don’t want to accept the award—but please do accept my compliments, recognition of your labor of love and its impact on the blogging community! 

Visitors here will notice I've previously nominated some of these people for the Liebster Award.  Still, you can check out their current posts, since all they blog quite frequently. If you've been nominated by me for two separate awards, I guess that action speaks for itself, in terms of how much I appreciate what you’re doing.


  1. Lovely, lovely!!! Congrats, Stephanie - you totally deserve this award. Thank you for accepting! :D

    1. Congrats to you as well! Thanks so much Marci!

  2. Congrats on your award. Readers are awesome, aren't they? Without readers, we'd just be out here talking to ourselves.

    1. I agree with you totally Stephanie and thanks!!

Autumn Equinox Gardening Reflection Part 2

We planted, and the little seedlings took.
They fluttered in the wind, and were visited by bees and butterflies.
The seedlings and plants seemed to enjoy the composted earth and worms, by all indications.

I've been waiting for this post for a long time. It shares the growing journey of my urban garden.

Making Soulful Connections

This weekend, I had the pleasure of presenting my new release "Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss" at Afriware Books and Events, an African-centered bookstore in Maywood, Illinois to a wonderfully receptive audience. Topics covered included making juice from popular soul food fruits and veggies and making mojo bags for self-determination and strength. My daughter Olivia Bird took these action photos:

Thanks to all involved, including Afriware staff, volunteers, my family and the folks who came out on a beautiful Saturday Summer afternoon and supported my work.
