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.

Reality Blog Award

Awakenings was honored in January with the Reality Blog Award from Alastair. My sincerest apology goes to Alastair for being so late in responding to this wonderful award. January was indeed a hectic month since January 22 was the official release date of Awakenings from Then 'til Now.

Before going into the award, I want to tell you a little about Alastair. Alastair is cool! He has an awesome blog, Alastair's Blog, where he shares stories AND poetry, and features terrific photography AND great music. One of his latest additions in 2013 has been his amalgamations. He participates in various blog/writing challenges, i.e., Friday Fictioneers, Cee's Fun Foto Challenge, Phoneography Challenge, Share Your World - 2013, WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, etc. As you can tell, he is one serious blogger! Check out Alastair's latest products @ Society6.
