I wasn´t gonna post today. Mostly because I slept only three hours last night and I have to be off and do loads of things. But a busy scedule never stopped me from blogging.
This morning I visited Brian´s site. He publishes every Wednesday and Friday and I have known him for some time now. Today he left me in total awe.
Brian is an amazing person who must have such a zest for life, that regardless of what life hands him...somehow he powers through.
His strength, honesty and beautiful heart touched me very early. He also wrote me a poem, a girl likes that too ;)
Now, I know that some of you already dwell in his poetic sphere, but those of you who don´t...why don´t you head on over to his site and read his last post. Read it all the way through and feel good afterwards and refreshed.
I am not sure what exactly it was about this post...but we sure all could use a little dose of good things in life!

FYI, talking about good things in life: Terry has some lovely pictures from Iceland up. In case you are curious about what surrounds yours truly!

Isn´t it great to publish a post, pointing to other people´s wrintings?! :)

Ok, I screwed up a little.
I am very tired after all!
Fred commented already-I am sorry I somehow deleted it- and said:

Fred: ok, will do! Go to bed...

At 14:02, Blogger Doug said...

So, am I first or not? That Brian's a poet. I'll go look.

Schlaft güt!

At 14:40, Blogger Kyahgirl said...

You are clever miss minka :-)

I'll go see what our Brian is up to.

And hereby acknowledge poor Fred as First! (sorry Dorky Apple Bro)

My dear Monika,

I am flabergasted at such generosity and grace from you. You are the definition of what it means to be a blogger friend. I am in your debt.

Your friend, Brian aka hummingbunny.

P.S. You are the first to know, but I just created a new blog "My Muse, My Poetry, My Life" in which I am creating folders for all my poetry. That way you don't have to hunt for a poem you liked. It will be done completely by Monday. Two folders are published now.

I can see why you like it there Minka.. gorgeous scenery, not too many people, and the people that are there are friendly, no?

At 16:24, Blogger Cowgirl said...

Already a Brian fan. He amazes me.

Brian, I´ll check it out after work and no need to be shy about it. I give praise when I think it is deserved. I saw an opportunity and didnæt want to miss it!

TVI, yes, theya re lovely people here. A little shy, but very friendly. And if you happen to see one on the street in teh countryside...they even speak English ;) Lovely place to visit! Let me know when you arrive!

Wonderful Friday evening to you my young friend!

At 00:12, Blogger Minka said...

tsduff...the pleasure is all mine! I was very lucky when I stumbled onto your page. You see I love this odd country deep down, and the fact that you do too...well, it just makes sense!

At 01:53, Blogger snavy said...

At 04:40, Blogger SquareGirl said...

At 07:20, Blogger Minka said...

First off, I am very impressed by your ability to sew curtains! I cannot get around sewing to save my life! In Denmark they used to make us take home-ec type classes in the 5th grade and I was very good at woodwork... before we got into sewing we moved but I was quite relieved as I just was not doing too well in that class!

I LOVE Terry's pictures! Makes me wanna come over and discover a land I need to know!

Kisses to a sweet, sweet Minka and buenos dias hermana!

At 23:41, Blogger dddragon said...

Question: Does it really count as a post if all you're doing is pointing to others'?

Answer: YES! and thx, I enjoy expanding my horizons (and very nice pix, too!)

At 01:40, Blogger Tom & Icy said...

I loved that photography you pointed to. Wonderful.

At 10:09, Blogger Minka said...

shayna, Yes, he is wonderful with words.

3D, I think so and am very glad you liked the pics.

Icy, wouldn´t it be nice to be able torun aorund and met Icelandic dogs here. Burry a bone somewhere and pee on a moutnain to mark it your territory? :)

At 20:15, Blogger windowtomymind said...

I have seen terrain in the Himalayas similar to Terry's pics. Hmmm...Himalayas-Iceland=Hi!

Thanks, Minka and Terry. Beautiful pics.

Go see my follow-up comment on Tuesday, May 30th.

At 20:19, Blogger cube said...

Thank you, Monica. I live & learn.

At 22:08, Blogger Sar said...

Great referrals and pix, Minka.

I have yet again fallen behind in my reading and I have to work my way over to Brian's place.

At 22:29, Blogger Minka said...

Ben, sure will do!

cube, as we all :)

Sar, don´t worry you didnæt miss anything so world changing :) But I sure hope you had a lovely weekend...tomorrow is still another holiday day in Iceland. How about the States?

At 00:18, Blogger The Gnat's Trumpet said...

Wow, those pictures over at Terry's are breathtaking. Really makes me want to take a visit. I always heard that Iceland was green and Greenland was icy.

At 00:25, Blogger Minka said...

Well, you heard right :)
It is lovely here. The scenery is breath taking an dyou get everything from sandy areas, to waterfalls to glaciers to volcanos. There are few people on this island, so you can ctually go off and be alone for a very long time if you choose to do so. And people always think it is bloody freezing all the time. I am not saying we have hot weather right now, but it isnæt freezing either. It is a lovely middle.
Oh...and welcome, I believe this is your first visit over here!

At 04:14, Blogger Kyahgirl said...

Hi, its Sunday night for me and Monday morning for you! I'm first!

People with the good sense to like me often demonstrate good taste in their other acquaintances as well!

Let's hear it for dropping names and finger-pointing! Thank you for the recommendations:)

At 00:41, Blogger Sar said...

Holiday? Did you say holiday, Minka? I didn't get a holiday! Hmph.

At 12:21, Blogger Doug said...

Wait a minute! This is the one-year anniversary of our meeting and you have NOTHING to say about it?!?!?!

At 12:32, Blogger Minka said...

But nontheless a sad excuse...I will make amends right now!
