Dragon's Loyalty Award

Dragon’s Loyalty Award

Erika Kind!
A beautiful woman from the Liechtenstein (between Austria and Switzerland) a daughter, a wife, a sister, a mother, a novelist, a writer, a poet, a beautician who undertakes the following, massages and has products with essential oils, spiritual healing, Matrix transformation and an avid Blogger and on top of that my great friend in the Virtual World.
Erika is the name of a flower, it has other meanings also, one is Ever Queen and Ever Powerful, you may refer for more details if you want. She was on a holiday when she gave me this Award and was blogging from wherever she went, kudos to her. Kind is her surname but I feel she is very KIND at heart also.
To tell you more about her; she has written four books –‘I am Free!!!’ Is one among them.  It is already on the stalls and is been a best seller already. No sooner I see it in the stalls anywhere in India I shall buy it. It seems to be a touch on the spiritual side of all of us. You may buy it and read it and pass comments to her. The link to her blog: https://erikakind.wordpress.com/
She has given a stunning interview to my friend Mr. Ngobesing Romanus at Success Inspirer you can refer it at this link. http://yoursuccessinspirer.com/2015/11/30/74782/
In an interview such questions should be asked to dig the in-depth and profound answers to those questions are in this particular interview.  You go read the interview you shall come to know.
She has presented me this Dragon’s Loyalty Award months back and I had promised her I would respond to her by this post. I was overwhelmed when I received this message of hers but could not respond immediately, as I have my own reasons for that. I don’t fuss on posting Award posts unlike some bloggers have put sign boards that their blogs are Award Free. Some do not accept at all, some accept but do not write Award Posts, some have an averse on those, some do not even respond or say thanks, OMG! But I personally feel this Award thing in the blogosphere is a fine act and should be considered as a ritual. One gives, one takes and then again one gives, what a wonderful act. After all it is in recognition.
This Award was initiated by …. … I wanted to write about them and explored about it but could not get the source. This is given to those who are loyal to you, that means people who visit your Blog regularly and read, like and pass comments on your Blog and who have become good friends in this Virtual World. I do not know why the Dragon picture or name is given to this; I explored about it but could not get any answer. May be centuries back the dragons’ used to be very loyal.
I thank Erika once again for awarding me this.

The Award requires to tell five random fact about me

I Love Swimming, when ever I see water in which I could swim, I shall never try to loose the chance.

I wanted to be an Actor, should I say a Film-Star. I did act in many Dramas in the Lead role always.

It is the Quality that matters to me rather than the Quantity.

Who is Who that does not matter to me, its I that Matters.

Life is a Journey and I believe in it.

Award Rules

  • Accept the award with thanks.
  • Give your readers 5 facts about you.
  • Nominate other bloggers and let them know.

I nominate the Following Bloggers who have been very, very loyal to me and have given all the encouragement, they have been visiting my Blog often and have commented on most of my Posts.

Thanks to them, go read them and put them in your basket.

I feel, make this Award Presenting and Receiving a Ritual. As for now we do not have anything else to get recognised or to recognise others whom we have come across. I mean, in this BLOG WORLD.

I had never ever expected this I take a deep bow in gratitude, Shiva. You literally did researches. I am not surprised you needed time for doing this. I have no words to say how humbled I am by what you did. Thank you for all the honoring and very “kind” words you found for my blog and me….. and my books (pssst… not really a bestseller, but selling better and better… haha) A hug hug to you, my friend!!!

    Well deserved Shiva; you are a revered and delightful presence in the blogosphere. Many thanks also for giving me a mention and nomination. Could I possibly ask you to correct the minor typo in my surname? [i.e. ‘Brawn’ not ‘Brown’] Congratulations and respect to you dear Shiva!

    Congratulations and thank you!!! I completely agree with you about Erika, she is the most warm, kind-hearted wonderful woman! Shiva we share so many things in common, when I was young I wanted to be an Actress…too bad we didn’t follow our dreams perhaps we could have starred in a movie together…well actually we still can when I close my eyes I can see it!! I was in the Drama club in high school and performed in a few plays too! I love the picture that goes along with this award, and I will treasure it always knowing it has come from you! Thank you again and mostly Congratulations to you Shiva!! Deb xo

      Actually I have taken a Screen Shot of this comment as a treasure in my Jewel Box. Yes! We could I suppose; I was so crazy about being an actor, nothing on earth could change my wish, I was after it for almost a decade that was before marriage and drowning myself into the family business. I did have a heartful laugh, when I read that we could do even now by closing the eyes. Its really wonderful to imagine like that, hence I think we can imagine so many things like that. I hope you understand. I have acted even in Shakespearean Dramas in Othello and Hamlet. Rest all of them in Kannada our regional language, I think it was there for almost a decade. We had an Amateur Association in which we used to play and I was the founder President of that.
      Erika Kind was kind to Reblog this Post, look how she has commented here and also in her blog about my gesture, I was overwhelmed about it, go see it. I told her that my Award posts are like that and asked her to read them, in which your nomination is there. Till then telepathy.

        Wow you really were so involved with acting. You pursued it much further than I. That must have been wonderful and now you have such rich memories to look back on! I am honored to be placed in your Jewel Box, I shall treasure being there. I will go to Erika’s blog to see what she wrote.
        You’re in my mind and heart!!

    Shiva thank you very much for thinking of me. I am honored. I am a procrastinator (true confession here) and though I’m not anti-award and actually, think they are a good way to encourage and connect, I’m really behind on follow through…so, there is a line ahead of this one (I’m so embarrassed to say) and I’ve let it get beyond me. I have lots of reasons but no real good excuses. I’m joyful but very imperfect. Just know that I truly, am flattered that I came to your mind as a nominee. God bless.

      No issues Pam!
      You are such a dear person having to express all that you wanted to in a very befitting manner.
      I loved the way you put it forth.
      I went to see what exactly Procrastinator means, of course it says:
      A procrastinator is a person who delays or puts things off — like work, chores, or other actions — that should be done in a timely manner. A procrastinator is likely to leave all the Christmas shopping until December 24th.
      Ha! Ha!!!
      So do you leave the shopping till 24th Dec.
      Now, Pam My Dear dont take it seriously.
      I always have great respect to YOU and you are in a corner of my Heart.
