Good-morning Glynn -- ok -- so is that the view out your window? where's the snow? Where's winter? :)

Before I commented, and thanked you for the mention, I clicked over to read Jeanne's piece, "The Presence of Greatness".

I'm so glad I did.

Thank you -- for the mention and for always championing bloggers from across the realm.


H. Gillham said...

I did the same thing -- immediately to that one ---

What a beautiful post....


And thanks for the others as well.

Thanks for posting these links I started following a few from my blog. There's really some great talent out there, I was unaware of. I'm very excited about the writing links. It not only inspired me to write poetry again, but also to remember some of the rules I learned long ago. Oy! Critiques. They are hard sometimes, but no reply is worse.

Robin Arnold said...

I'm tickled to be mentioned amongst such swell posts. I shared your flash mob suggestion too. My family is crazy for flash mobs. We should have a blogger flash mob...kidding but not.

Have a terrific weekend sir!

Jeanne Damoff said...

Glynn, you are always a dear and give a generous gift in sharing these good reads. I'm honored each time you include me here. But that intro! This morning I feel like you handed me a delicately scented rose, and I bow my head to breathe the sweetness, grateful for friendship and the tender grace of your tears.

Humbled. Thank you.

Maureen said...

I'm honored to be in the company here today; there is so much that is wonderful. Thank you for bringing us this gift round-up every Saturday.

Sandra Heska King said...

You are always such an encouragement! Thank you for including me here again this week. You throw such good parties!

S. Etole said...

Kelly Sauer said...

Glynn, thank you! I was out of town, and here you are, sharing me around anyway! How fun to come home to here!
