Actually, she said it over a month ago (thank you, Eva, I really did and do appreciate it - I feel all verklempt about it actually) and I've sat here and done nothing about telling you about 5 people who I think are blog thinkers in turn.
This is mostly because I already have a list of people who I think are blog thinkers and they're listed here to the right --> along with a few others like Snickolet, who just lost her husband to cancer, is taking care of infant twins, and is still blogging with such evocative language and real beauty that I'm ashamed of my everyday pettiness. And Leggy (whom I won't link to due to her wish for privacy), who blogs about ca.nce.r, 1nfert1l1ty and 1nlaws. And some others who don't blog regularly. How do I pick just 5? Many have already been picked, too.
Here's the thing, all of you - Each and Every One - is a blog thinker. Each of you makes me think something new everyday. Each of you teaches me, reaches me, informs me, makes me laugh, and cry (sometimes in the same post) and get angry. I can't pick just five. And if I were to link to each post that I've read that made me think, well, I'd never be done.
I can't thank you all enough for being out there. Writing your lives. You make me feel like part of something big. A huge community of loving, caring, intelligent individuals who are all looking out for one another, sharing pain and joy and outrage and faith that somehow the world can be a better place.
