A Year of Love Mekanism Project

What would I say if these were the last things I said? What would I eat if this were the last morsel I  feel on my tongue? Where would I go? What would I do? Who would…? With whom…?

Questions that seem the most dark to think of- especially when you have no reason to believe you don’t have time to figure out are all the ones thrust on me a bit over a month ago. I found that none of these are reflected here and that there’s no reason they shouldn’t.

Poem 21: Part 2 – Second the One

2nd part of the series “Second the One” by Meka

Sell me the dream,” I think
Gazing intently atop my drink
Careful not miss his rendition of the familiar speech
These lips can sync it by heart and memory
Recalling files of familiar lines from the Top Shelf
Tipsy enough to amuse myself

But the muse, myself
Instead is listening attentively-
Admiring how seriously
He takes life but not himself

Makes punch-lines land smoothly
Amid run away laughter
Drowning out the sense to tell when it’s time to

Poem 26: Teacher

Do it again

Make me react like that

I didn’t know that did that

How could I know that meant that

Studiously catching words from your lips

Pocketing them at my hips

To be emptied by your fingertips

Don’t stop teaching me

Teacher

Like, share, and don’t forget to follow the Project on Facebook!

Poem 23: If My Love Were Your Drug

For all my lovelies in love! Have and make enough for me ❤

A story of contact, your eyes would concoct

As they widen til bloodshot

No faking when

Your pupils dilate to take me all in

5. Awards: A Love Note

1. I know I have thanked you to death already in all the acceptances. This week there were 2! Very Special Awards to Me: The Inspiring Blogger Award and Wonderful Team Readership Award in that order.  Thank you so much! Few things are sweeter than being recognized by your peers. For as long as I get them and I can reasonably respond regardless of the

Very Inspiring Blogger AwardWonderful Team Member Readership Award

timeline, I will. I read all the time, and I genuinely have no problem saying ‘thanks” or sharing! Art is so beautiful in that there doesn’t have to be competition 🙂

2. If I give you an award, please know that the most important thing is that you know how I feel about it. You’ve already given, and you don’t owe anything. Someone will circulate them lol. That’s all!!

3. I am aware that some do not answer them because they are busy and their blogs have become so popular they can no longer accept them. We used to jokingly call those a “high-class” problem to have!  I think that’s marvelous and will not hold it against you, so don’t mention it! In fact, I must admit that I do not check to see afterwards. I have no idea

4. Otherwise, I do include the instructions in the original post, so please feel free to refer back to them as you go about making someone else’s day!

There’s plenty to enjoy in every step of the journey. I will try not to forget to enjoy it. I will do all for as long as I can because I like interacting with you. I read a lot. I like reading, and I believe that every interaction counts.

Super! Wonderful Team Member Readership Award

Thank you Whimsical Eclecticist for this award- the second one from you is just as delightful as the first; I am honored. His writings are clean, creative, and smart; it’s no wonder he’s often showered with awards. I’m impressed by his creativity and grateful for his generous blush-inducing appreciation for Love Mekanism. This energy has been a welcome asset to the project – especially now. I know that one necessary challenge for me will have to be to visit the Whimsical Eclecticist blog and not smirk or smile. You should try it sometime!

Rules:

  1. The nominee of The Wonderful Team Member Readership Award shall display the logo on his/her blog.
  2. The Nominee shall nominate 14 readers they appreciate over a period of 7 days, all at once or little by little; linking to their blogs; and telling them about it at their blogs.
  3. The nominee shall name his/her Wonderful Team Member Readership Award nominees on a post during 7 days.

I’ll follow his lead and nominate at least two people a day for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award– that is a minimum of two added to this post until all 14 have been nominated. All things equal, this process should take no longer than a week.

Wheeeew!!! No interesting facts 😀 Perfect because I’m all out this morning.

This award is really really important because I believe it’s about the relationship between our blogs- as readers, specifically. Like Kamille, who is quick-witted and one of the most honest people I know. Not to mention a dear friend of the project from the very first post. I told her recently how I appreciate that because I know how difficult it is to continue to support anything consistently. Since Love Mekanism Project has been on Facebook too, she mostly follows there, but I am always happy to see her presence.

Now let’s get down to the business of this lovely award:

You know I am sooooooft mushy putty for the Love Mekanism Project Community, Honey. Loving, supportive, oh so sharp, witty, patient, sexy, understanding, empathetic, but honest, and very talented. My keyboards couldn’t build a better partner than you have been to me here. I hoped you might read what I write, and I do write a lot about nearly everything lol, but you hang right on in there with me, and I appreciate that so much. I don’t know how you do it, but I do know that your presence is the perfect “love tap” along with the sweet comments, sharing, and following–all mean alot to me. When I got this wonderful award, I couldn’t wait to share it with you!

First, I’d like to nominate Juno@rt to receive the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award.

1. I love Juno’s blog. It is one of the most aesthetically pleasing blogs I have seen. She’s a has a special gift for emoting through photography; you feel it. One of the first images of hers I re-blogged here was one called Loves 🙂 Through her lens, a simple flower becomes majestic, and immediately you are drawn in– that’s also when you understand that what you’ve seen is worth remembering… immediately. But just to be sure there is absolutely no denying her talents, she pairs her photos with poetry and quotes that could not be more fitting. I don’t know how she does it, but she reads and is active here. You’re an amazing artist. I appreciate it so much. Thank you.

2. My next *PICK* for this award is Flow of My Soul. Ya can’t help but root for the Flow of My Soul blog. Sure, 😀 I connect with the blogger’s story, of course! It’s a little familiar, but mostly because I really dig the work ethic. Challenges are set, completed, and posted as promised. No matter. Having made and heard so many excuses to not start and not finish, it is refreshing to see one forging ahead and getting better with each post while finding the time to be a faithful friend of Love Mekanism Project, and active member of the Community. You are appreciated.

About the New Decorum Here

Take a click around. I know that this was a sudden change, but I got tired of not being able to find posts. Hopefully this will help because there are a looot more than I thought. Seems like just yesterday, I posted a celebration of 50 of them! But now there are upwards of 70. Some of them are by others. So far so fine, but it requires a lot more pics. I’m not a big pic person, and I don’t have any professional ones, so be kind.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • “Featured”: This thing calls all the posts across the top, “Featured”. On this blog, I’ve been calling Reblogs and Guest Posts “Featured” because I didn’t know what else to call them, but until I can change them all, unless otherwise specified, I wrote them.
