A garden awaits all who enter

It was an unexpected surprise last week when I was contacted by Walt Wojtanik and Marie Elena Good, authors of the blog Poetic Bloomings. They wanted to do an interview of me for their Web Wednesday feature.

Probably no one will read it, I thought; but I accepted with vim and vigor.

When Walt sent me the questions, I was amazed at how personal they were. It was obvious he hadn't sent me a general list that he sends all the guests. He and Marie had actually taken the time to dig up some dirt on my past experiences.

Excited, I tackled the assignment right away. I let my fingers do the typing, spent time reflecting and even sat on it a few days before I sent it back.

I sure did learn a lot about myself... who cares if nobody reads it? I thought.

And if I had to give you a three-word synopsis of my interview, I would have to say PLEASE READ IT. Oh, and a comment would be nice.

You'll learn much more about the significance of this blog if you do... and maybe a thing or two about me you didn't know.

Laurie, it was a lovely, sensitive and authentic interview. How could it be anything other? May you continue to fly with the crimson of cardinals, my charming NaNo partner. <3

I thoroughly enjoyed your interview and was touched to read of your special relationship with cardinals.

Laurie Kolp said...

Thank you both...

What an honour for you and most certainly an interesting interview.

I am fascinated by your talk of cardinals and their links with spirituality. Also saddened that these remarkable sounding little birds don't exist in Australia

Laurie Kolp said...

Thank you Sylvia and Fi!

Fi- I'm sure you can find signs in Australia if you listen and look hard enough... = )
