A Thank You


Some time ago, I published a post that said that I would not be accepting any awards if they were ever offered, and in fact, have appreciated but turned down a couple since.  However, the other day I was nominated for the Power of Words award by Coach Muller, author of goodtimestories.wordpress.com.  This time, I have decided to accept for a couple of reasons.  The first is because I am such a big fan of his post, and am honored that he in turn, is a fan of mine.  If you have not read his post, you should.  He consistently finds and champions the stories that never make it to the news.  The ones that we all wish there were more of, focusing on the power of positive people.  The second reason is a little more obscure.  It is because the nomination came without strings.  No rules, no requirements, no kidding.  I found that refreshing and, quite frankly, a token of recognition given with no expectations of gaining something in return. To me, that is another good time story.

So thank you Coach.  I appreciate the kudos and, if I can ever figure out how to post the damn thing on my blog page, I will display it proudly.

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at poormanspoet.wordpress.com to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
