“Versatile Blogger Award” …. Nominated by JeremyTheBoyPoet!


Thank you Jeremy …. from http://jeremytheboypoet.wordpress.com for nominating me for this award.

I am honored to accept it for with grace and humility. It never ceases to amaze me that what I write or post or compile, some “out there” find it interesting to read, like, reblog and share.

The times that I have been nominated for an award by fellow bloggers, who have been working with their wonderful platforms, the more touched I am. These fellow bloggers have been accepting and have welcomed me with open arms. As I have started my journey into the blogosphere, I have found many bloggers that have been so open, so helpful, so inspiring and so educational to me.

I feel honored to be among some of the best. I feel inspired by what I read and moved to do better.

Some of you may know that “my blog” … “It is What it Is” … is relatively young. I started on this new venture in March 2013 – a month after I retired from my professional career of almost 40 years.

I had time on my hands and at the suggestion of a very dear friend … this journey started. My friend suggested that I write about the experiences that I had at work because of the “system” that I had been working with. It was started with the basic idea but it morphed into something else. It morphed into a little bit of everything. I call that “eclectic” …. I have found out that the more I bring my being to this “place”, the more it changes.

I would like to emulate those blogs that I find inspiring, educational, spiritual ….. these awards make my commitment to improve stronger. I don’t want to disappoint those who have considered by blog worthy.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. congratulations Dr. Rex. I love where you were born, so beautiful. Your father is a handsome man, and the school you went to is gorgeous!!!!! What a life!!!! I play the piano too. I would do anything to have a piano once again. We had a fire and it burnt up in that, but when I see a piano, I sit back down and it all comes back. Thank you so much for the nomination my friend. Big hugs.
