So, our lovely Manic Monday yesterday wrote a post honoring all of us here at Canvas with the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. She, in turn, inspired me to write this up, to take care of a loose end and weave in a new strand.
So. On the subject of awards, in January our own Tallulah “Lulu” Stark gave us a Versatile Blogger Award. I honestly wasn’t sure how to handle that one, as there wasn’t much activity on Canvas around then, and hadn’t been for a while. I gave it a tincture of time and an ounce of judicious neglect, as my pediatrician used to say. And now I think it is a good time to post about it, to make the bloggers here who might have missed it aware, and to thank dear Lulu from everyone.
And don’t think I’m missing my chance, either. I’d like to give to all of the authors a Liebster Blog award. I got this idea when Monday let me know about her nominating the group.
There are so many versions about what this award means. Okay, well I’m going to give you Ruby’s reason for sending it along to the Canvas authors. I took German a million-and-a-half years ago. I may not remember everything, but I do remember that the root of “Liebster”, lieb, comes from the infinitive form of the German verb lieben, which translates as ‘to love.’ And I love very much the wonderful family I have found here at Canvas. I wanted to write out a sentence or two on what I find special in each person, but so many of the reasons are personal for me. You see, things go on behind the curtain as well, and I don’t choose to blog about them. I’m just grateful to have all of you in my life.
Now let’s get these lovely accolades displayed somewhere!
