Thinking Blogger Award

To my surprise and appreciation, Elizabeth at fluent gave me a Thinking Blogger Award. Unwittingly, she has made my job of selecting five blogs that make me think, make me question, and challenge me a little bit harder because hers would be right at the top! Thanks, Elizabeth, and your musings on writing, writers, and life in general always give me something to ponder.

With no further ado, then, here are five of the many blogs that make me think:

Musings of a Distractible Mind: This doc's curiosity is matched by his intelligence and wide range of interests. A great read.

Managing the Sweetness Within: If there's one thing Lyrehca likes to do, it's ask questions. She's asked a lot of terrific ones as she juggles Type 1 diabetes and pregnancy, and she is as insightful as she is hilarious.

Swimming Upstream: I first found this blog through Elizabeth's site and have been engrossed by this writer/MFA student's honest, thoughtful prose.

Tundra Medicine Dreams: The thoughts about medicine are as striking as the amazing photography and descriptions of Tundra life--an intellectual and visual treat.

Emergiblog: Kim's blog is informative, interesting, and always satisfying.

Wow--thanks for the shoutout (and today's my birthday, too, so what a nice gift!). Now I gotta think about who makes me think. Looking forward to lunch this week, too.

You're welcome, Lyrecha! Thanks for cracking me up and making me think.

I finally got the award image to work right--apparently, the gold was too large for my site but the silver did the trick.

More importantly, Happy Birthday!!! Have a great day, and I'll see you soon!

It is wonderful to be recognized by you in this way. I hope I don't make you think too much, however. I do my best to avoid thinking at times too.

I also like reading the other sites that are referenced in these. It is an honor to be mentioned with them.

You're welcome, Rob. I know you've already been accused of thinking before, but I couldn't resist. And rest assured, my nod toward your wide range of interests was in deference to your...eclectic, let's call it, subject matter.
