stepping stones of truth

A journey along the path of life - the stones can be rough, smooth or even wobbly!

Horizon, who lives in a lovely part of Scotland, kindly nominated me for this award. So I have great pleasure in passing it on to two other bloggers, whose writing I enjoy tremendously.

The Other Val of Val Has Her Say lives in another contintent but we share so many similarities - apart from the obvious one of our name. We are both librarians (though she is now happily retired and is my pathfinder); we are of similar age; we have Husbands Who Cook; and are both fascinated by Japanese gardens and culture; enjoy reading novels about India. And I just wish we lived closer and could enjoy a good chat over a cup of tea!

Vishwa lives in India, and through A Walk in the Drizzle I've watched him become a parent, and learned much from his eloquent writing. Its lovely to share his everyday and spiritual life in a small way.

I am settling again after the upheaval and fun of the wedding. I feel like an old house that has been shaken by a small earthquake, and is shaking off the dust and sending down roots again.
I think I need peace and quiet in my daily life for a while. But I wont get it! Never mind, life is lovely in Dorset - despite the rain today and the crappy job!

That's a beautiful photo of your daughter and her husband Val- she looks wonderful!
Give them my congratulations!
Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog- meant so much. I'm headed to bed now with a good book. Keep well and Bests

Thank you for that, Val. I always love to be reminded of the things we share from afar, and I too wish we could meet one day for a long chat and a nice pot of tea.

I see that Blogger has reinstated hyperlinks to the interests listed in our profiles. I believe that is how you found me in the first place. Happy day that was!

Congratulations on your blogger award.

And the picture of your daughter (and her new hubby) below is fabulous. She looks stunning and I love that dress!! Congratulations to them both.

Thanks Val :-) And I like that analogy of an old house shaken by an earthquake!

Well done, Val! This is one of the most thoughtful places I know!

Well deserved Val. I agree with Cate.....yours is a thoughtful place indeed, and I love reading your reflections. You have a way of bestowing peace through your writing, which I so much appreciate.
The "Other Val" is also a thinker (and doer) and a very dear blog friend whose musings I enjoy greatly. I'll have to visit Vishwa to have "A Walk in the Drizzle".
I hope you find that peace and quiet you're seeking.

The award is certainly well-deserved, you always have something worthwhile to say. Thank you for your kind words about my book post - I have to say that it's never entered my head to send anything I write to a magazine etc, I wouldn't even know how to begin:)
