7 for the weekend--- seven new blog friends

47  193/365  My Church's Wall

I just had dinner with a large group of friends at my church. As I enter blogger land, I have decided to celebrate that I have been blessed to have stumbled upon some new blogs, so let me praise them:

1. Synch-ro-ni-zing--- Original poems, great photos, developing a love of jazz, a recent post on Detroit that is filled with hope... also check out her projects on Rumi and Rilke

2. Curt's Jazz Cafe--- I mentioned Curt back in July when I was talking about twitter and jazz, but failed to mention his blog. His recent take on obscure trumpet players has been quite educating and his end of the year best of list gives me a chance to catch up a bit on what I have missed.

3. Our Little Family--- I am so loving what happens here most Thursdays and that is all I have to say.

4. Art Propelled--- When Mosaic Woman's sister moved to South Africa, Mosaic Woman, hoped to find some interesting blogs from there. Just so happened I had just found a blog by a wood carver.

5. Sew On and On--- She has stormed from being a twitter follower to flickr contact to blog reader to facebook friend. Check out her Thankfulness Installation, which she has been highlighting for the past several weeks.

6. Snowcatcher--- OK, so I may not be planning a ride up Pike's Peak this summer, like she is, but her passion for bicycling has my heart aching for what used to bring it so much joy. Her photography like so many of these bloggers makes me humble.

7. Blue Lion Blog --- A science teacher with a passion for nature and photography. His relatively recent post on Yellowstone had me flashing back to when I was 13 years old.

these and a few others just got added to my blog roll today.



  1. I am very touched that you included me in your blog roll with such wonderful bloggers Wayne! You and Margaret have become dear internet friends and I count myself blessed that our paths have crossed.

  2. Thank you very much, what a nice thing. Now I know your name, thanks to Valerie. So glad we found each other's blogs.

  3. Valerie and Ruth--- you are more than welcomed, finding your blogs have been a treat.

  4. I am honored that my blog helped you relive some special moments from your youth! Thanks for sharing my blog ...I have also added you to my blog roll as well. Cheers!

  5. I'm going to have fun visiting your blogging friends!

    And don't count out Pikes Peak just yet... you might get inspired!!!

  6. John and Snowcatcher--- you two awe me with your cameras and eyes. as for Pike's Peak, you must have another Stratoz in mind who could get inspired to such things
