Thinking Blogger

Sonji named me a "thinking blogger." Kathie and Dara named Sonji as a "thinking blogger" and so the cycle continues...

It's funny, because I think my blog has lacked some depth of late. I struggle a bit with direction in my blog. Sometimes I have big ideas or questions that I wish to post about on my blog, but I don't always want to take the time to really put the words together carefully to express my thoughts. Thinking takes time. Sometimes I think it's ok to to "dance through life." There is a song in the musical Wicked called "Dancing Through Life" which includes the line, "life's more painless, for the brainless." Of course, I note this in jest, but only slightly.

By the way, Claire and I are going to see Wicked on Thursday.

So, thinking blogs! Here are some that come to mind (that haven't already been named on other thoughtful blogs).

Amanda at Soulemama. There are many things I love about Amanda and her blog, not the least of which is that she posts EVERY weekday. I also love her creative spirit, her retro style, her dedication to her children, her honesty and her view of beautiful Maine.

Ali Edwards. So delighful. Ali is a big-time scrapbooking designer and teacher, and though I do not scrap book, I love her thoughts about "capturing life and creating art." Her dedication to raising awareness (and money) for autism is also quite inspiring.

Julie at A Nun's Life. Actually this blog is totally new to me. I heard about it on the NPR Pop Culture Podcast, so I've been reading it for a couple of days. Having grown up in an church-going family, I am very drawn to the real lives of people who are active in ministry. It's definetely a "thinking blog."

Kim at Something to Say. I think Kim posts even more than daily sometimes! Always something fresh. She's got a great eye, amazing links, inspiring ideas!

Joshilyn at Faster Than Kudzu. Definetely not enough pictures, but so witty. Also a nice peek into the world of being a novelist (for when I get tired of reading about art quilters). But :: get this! :: I've heard Joshilyn's next book is about an art quilter!

And so many more!

Hey, Deborah, I call thinking what you do before you create your beautiful art, and then you blog it, and THAT is definitely thinking!!
