🙂 I gives me singular pleasure to announce My Blog Pick for May 2013
Dee G. Vachal blogging as lillies, sparrows and grass
Dee posts lovely images – her lilies, as I call them – and all so beautiful, soothing and uplifting.
She writes poems and her words sing and flutter – her sparrows. Quite often, her choice of words is unique. Here is an extract from one of her recent poems The Warmth of Summer’s Rain :
“Upon the cobblestones / the smoldering coals / of melting snow”
Take a moment to dwell on this imagery.
Oh, she also writes articles, which borrow mostly from Scripture. These I refer to as – her grass. After grazing, one needs to chew and mull to relish her words.
I dedicate this haiku for my dear friend in Blogsville – Dee 🙂
Welcome to the feast, and feast.
Something else I wish to share about Dee – she is accomplished in many ways and I suggest you visit and read her About the Blogger page.
What struck me most of about Dee is the time she apparently invests in ALL her comments she posts in my blog. She consistently shares ideas and opinions which I find profound and triggers further thoughts for me. Those of you who know my leanings, can understand how much I cherish such writing.
I can go on but shall add one more snippet and stop.
You know that some of my posts are controversial but Dee displays her inner confidence as revealed in her comments – always empathetic.
Dear people, many of you already know her but for the few who don’t – please pay Dee a visit. You will not be disappointed > lillies, sparrows and grass
Dee, my friend, it is my pleasure to read your works and I hope you continue to share your love and wisdom. God bless you and yours.
🙂 Eric 🙂

I’ve just travelled through to Dee’s site Eric, a wonderful experience. many thanks for pointing me and others in such a wonder-filled direction.. There are so many fantastic people with so much talent, sharing their ideas. thoughts and poems though blogging, I try to take a ‘space walk’ as I call it,every now and again. but time makes it a short one unfortunaely… xPen
Happy for you and for Dee that you found her blog a wonderful experience, Penny G. All of us are challenged by lack of time and such ‘recommendations’ help us zoom in on blogs with great content.
All good wishes,
Thank you 😀
Dear Eric, this is a heartwarming surprise. I am overwhelmed by your post referring to my blog as your blog pick for May 2013. After traveling over 20 hours again from the East Coast USA to Asia, here I am sleepless, fortunate with a smidgen of internet connectivity for a while, and smiling with shock (picture that). Thanks again, Eric. I am grateful beyond words. Luv and peace, Dee
Oh dear, caught you at a wrong time, Dee, but also glad you managed to drop over and post a comment. I’m very happy indeed that you’re smiling – that’s great 🙂
Have a good visit, rest, enjoy and we’ll ‘catch up’ upon your return stateside.
Luv and peace to a dear friend who has given me much with her posts and comments,
Thank you for the introduction to Dee. Just popped over for a peek, and loved what I saw 🙂

Mutual self-help, I reckon 🙂
