My first nomination ever and now I understand how those Golden Globe and Oscar nominees feel… it’s an honor to be nominated.
I couldn’t possibly beat Mary-Ann’s Snoopy jig – done twice – upon being nominated so I won’t even try. A heartfelt thank you to her for having a blog that I delight in following, Not the Family Business and for being generous in passing on the hug with this award. Though along with it comes all the guilt because I have not kept up with it as I should. It makes me feel a bit less guilty though that those who don’t know me have a bit of info/photos/reflection to be had in the pages already written. However, this will spur me into action to bring it up to date!
So I am now supposed to share 7 random things about myself. Hmmm, where do I start when I already feel I have shared so much?
1) Versatile. The definition describes me quite well. I grew up in 10 different countries because my father worked for the United Nations and relocated every 2-4 years. Had I not been versatile I would not have been able to survive the first day in a new school or in a new country with new languages and cultures.
2) I am an only child.
3) Though my “official” profession is actor I have a huge passion for photography, painting, writing and traveling. All of which I must, must do.
4) I can’t live without music whether it be the one in my soul and heart or the one one I hear. (That makes me sound kind of kooky, doesn’t it?)
7) When I was awarded this my first thought was: “Oh my, I’m in the middle of moving I don’t have time for a post!” and now I can’t be happier that I’m doing it or that someone thought me worthy of it.
