The fabulous Sovely Matters nominated me for the Vincent Ehindero Blogger Award. Please check out her website, MurmelMeister, Life (Style) with Heart and Soul . It is a wonderfully varied blog, and the stories, poems, thoughts expressed are exactly that: full of heart and soul.
Thank you for the nomination!

You can find out more about the AWARD at  WWW.VINCENTEHINDERO.WORDPRESS.COM

The rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you with a link to their blog.
  • Make a post of the award (with a photo of the logo) and your answers.
  • Post the rules.
  • Ask 5-10 questions of your choice.
  • Nominate 10-30 other bloggers (or more) and notify them.

Sovely chose just one and that makes this extra-special to me. I am not sure how you feel about blogging awards, so I will follow in Sovely’s footsteps and nominate just one: The Vintage Toy Advertiser – for the joy he brings through sharing his private treasure trove of 20th century print advertising, toys, and pop culture curiosities. He is also a great writer, poet and artist, and does all this while working in healthcare! I could nominate lots of others – why not you check out ‘Blogs and Sites I love’ ?

My Replies:

  1. What is the soundtrack of your life?
    From Happy Disco to Gloomy Rock – everything except Death Metal and any sexist/racist ‘crap’..
  2. If your life is like an open book, what would be the title of it?
    “Wibi’s wondrous voyage” – “Wibi’s wundersame Reise”
  3. Do you prefer to spend time with other people and adapt or would you rather do your own thing?
    ‘No man is an island’ – I have reached an age or time in my life, where I feel that I must follow my own path, rather than adapt – but I am also a believer in staying curious and in living in harmony, so I absolutely need – and love to – spend time with other people.
  4. So what is next for you?
    Trying to get my creative juices flowing again, having spent too long working in a poisonous environment. Also, perhaps a move to yet another country…
  5. How do you deal with the history of your country?
    I used to say that I wanted to be a globetrotter, a ‘woman of the world’… In terms of where I am ‘at home’ there are now 2 countries and there are horrible chapters in the history of each – some more well-documented than others. I still carry ‘guilt’ about these, even if I wasn’t around at the time, so try to be honest about what happened and to live and encourage others to live in a way so that there will be no repeat of the horrors.

And here are my questions for TVTA:

  1. If you were a Marvel character, who would you be?
  2. What are you (creatively) working on at the moment?
  3. If you were granted the fulfilment of 3 wishes, what would they be?
  4. Do you like James Bond – and if yes, who (actor) is your favourite?
  5. How do you manage to fit your writing and artistic work around work and family life?

Thank you again, Sovely of Murmelmeister, for nominating me – it was a tough, but enjoyable experience!
