Before admiring my new gown, I want you to go visit Aya's blog. Quick! Right now. Put down your cup of coffee and go read her words.
Aya demonstrates her worthiness for the Bloggy Award by using the occasion to reflect deeply on a matter personal to her and relevant to the rest of us. Her examination of that subject is intelligent and thoughtful. Reading it, we benefit from her ideas.
I have two motivations for the Bloggy Awards -- first, to recognize and reward exceptional efforts in blogging and, second, to promote connections and friendships among bloggers. Both goals appear to be happening. Thanks, Aya, for your contribution in this direction.
