Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Two Awards: Addictive Blog and One Lovely Blog Awards

Awakenings is pleasantly pleased and deeply honored to have two awards bestowed upon her by Resa McConaghy @Queen's End. Resa received the Great Photographer Tribute Award from Free Tag Zone - Inventory of the Ephemeral: "To restore ephemeral art all its nobility ..." and has been featured on Awakenings blogpost Real or Art?
Before delving into the awards, let me introduce you to Resa and a little bit about her photography using her own words. . .
"During a recent trip to Winnipeg, I saw a fabulous Mural of Charlie Chaplin on the side of a very old hotel. I shot it the best I could, and submitted the photographs to the Free Tag Zone network.
It was then that I was made aware of the more than 600 Murals that grace the city … The Murals of Winnipeg. I began to shoot. I couldn’t stop. I photographed over 70 of these Murals during my stay. I shot almost 2,000 images of complete works and specific details within them."
When Resa Meets The Murals Of Winnipeg is a wonderful site documenting these Murals. I encourage all to visit her site where you will whet your appetite only to return for more, more, more...
Now, on to the awards...
Most awards come with 'rules' of engagement. This one is different. There were NO rules to pass along to new recipients. The only requests are to link back to this site and select a recipient or recipients you feel deserving of the awards. You may bestow both on the same blogger(s) or different blogger(s).
Awakenings bestows the awards as follows:
Addictive Blog Award
Alastair's Blog - Photography, Music and Poetry 
"I am a 45-year-old father of two children. One is 14 and acts like an 18-year-old sometimes, and a 16-year-old who has Asperger’s Syndrome which is an Autistic Spectrum Disorder. ...I usually take over a thousand photos a month at the moment so had to buy a spare memory card and battery as well."
Once you visit Alastair you will definitely be addicted anticipating the next article, photo of the day and featured music video!
One Lovely Blog Award
Source of Inspiration - All is One, co-creating with the Creator
Pat Cegan enlightens her readers through poetry...words of wisdom with loveliness of thought and expression. You will enjoy not only her inspiring words but also the photographic images that reflect the emotion behind her words.
