In a February post, I mentioned that starting in March I would select and feature one blog per month.

I am happy to announce that My Blog Pick for the Month of March 2013 is nightlake blogging as call2read.

From her email notifications, I believe she is from India though in this global village, she could also be hailing from Europe, America or Anywhere 🙂 I respect her privacy and did not pry. But I do know from her ABOUT page that she moved to Singapore after her marriage and I hope she loves her stay here.

In the few months, she and I had been following each other’s blogs, I found her writing subtle and refreshing. She writes both poetry and verse and I love that she packs so much into so little. Her posts take a minute or so, even seconds, to read but hours to digest depending on how deep you want to delve.

I suppose she enjoys my posts too, as evinced by the regularity and quality of her comments. I remain humbled and grateful for her support.

    1. Thank you, Nahijah.

      I notice you just started your blog and (besides reblogging) yet to post your own works. May I wish all the best in your endeavours.

      — Eric —

  1. Eric,

    I’ve spent quite a bit of time reading through Padmini’s poetry. Lovely! Thanks so much for the recommendation. She has a beautiful voice. I appreciate your most generous spirit.



    1. As you probably guessed, there are several layers here:
      First, the literal (pun intended).
      Second, human conception.
      There is a third, but admittedly somewhat vague.

      Glad you found it awesome,
      Eric 🙂

  2. Excellent recommendation, Eric. She’s GOOD. I can see quite clearly why you’re captured by her writing style. She, like you, paints so fluidly … highly refined, yet with the power to move the reader at will.


    1. That is marvellous KP – nightlake is talented.

      Now, I’m feeling the pressure to ensure April’s Blog pick meets the bar. But, all in good fun.

      Cheers, Eric
      P/s Left a slight naughty comment for the good Professor in your blog 🙂

    1. Thank you Maryam 🙂

      I enjoy your visits too and you are generous with your comments.

      Not all bloggers need publicity as they manage quite well themselves. But I see some really talented people who simply don’t have the time to —- so I help to promote their blogs. Admittedly, it also does me good.

      All good wishes,

  3. Hi Eric, Look forward to catching up with the above.
    In the meantime I am nominating you for The One Lovely Blog Award/The Very Inspiring Blogger Award.
    Here are the rules.
    Thank the person who nominated you.
    Add The One Lovely Blog Award/The Very Inspiring Blogger Award to your post.
    Share 7 Things about yourself.
    Pass the awards on to 10 nominees.
    Include this set of rules.
    Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs.

    1. Congratulations Chris 🙂 and thank you also for nominating me 🙂

      I am reposting here what I mentioned in your blog. Let me know if you encounter problems and I’ll try to guide you through – but do bear with me if I take some time to respond to your queries.

      I read your post. Wow!

      50 years of worklife – that is something. Truly, you are deserving of a happy retirement – from work but not from enjoying life. And 37 years of marriage – you’ve set the bar too high for many.

      Re: with Awards, one usually copies and pastes the “image” – if unsure, please visit one of my award posts here > or see my topline > Z-Awards Page.

      And it is usual to leave a link-back to your blog post.

      But hey, no worries – I found your post 🙂

      Have a good one,

    1. OMG, Val – that is such a lovely compliment 🙂

      Pressure-pressure on me to maintain standards – but I shall do my best.

      All good wishes,
      P/s I had a good crack up reading your flash-in-the-pan about what gave you ecstasy.
      P/p/s – Everyone, especially the guys, reading this comment – hop over to Val’s 🙂

  4. Thank you so much for the kind words. I am overwhelmed by the kind appreciation of my posts. Yes, I am from India and think Singapore is beautiful and well maintained. Honored that my blog was selected for this month. Thank you so much once again..

    1. You are very welcome and well deserving to be recognised – I am not going to mention your name here 🙂

      Ah, from India 🙂 Well, I guessed so but one can never tell. One side of my family, my paternal grandfather, is from India. He came to Malaya in the 1920’s.

      Happy blogging and God bless,

    1. There are many great blogs out there and call2read is definitely one of them, Mike.

      She is very unassuming and treats all her commentators with decorum.

      Glad you concur with my selection 🙂

      Cheers, Eric
