“The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”
The Basis of Morality
A dear blogger friend taught me about this concept.
“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
As my good friend Patty, from http://petitemagique.wordpress.com/, frequently says, there is a shower of awards arriving at “It Is What It Is“.
It never ceases to amaze me.
It’s a wonderful feeling to feel that your “work” and message is appreciated. The real values of these awards, for me, is the knowledge, like I’ve said before, that there is “someone out there“. As one sits at the PC, it’s you, your keyboard, your monitor and your heart and soul. It can be lonely, if you look at it that way. You never know what is going to happen. One can only hope for the best.
The feedback that one receives is what makes the difference. It’s a confirmation that your goal has been attained.
Today I’m combining five awards. They will be listed here and are available for any fellow blogger who wants to pick them up. There are no rules and no nominees. These are here for the taking.
Consider yourselves the champions of this blogosphere in which we interact.
We are all connected through this web we weave!
~~The awards are the following~~
~~Nominated by Tazein~~
Semper Fidelis is Latin and means Always Loyal. Wolves have very strong ties with their pack. Like a family or a great group of friends.
This award stands for the loyalty and love between friends.

“The Dragon’s Loyalty Award is for the loyal fan/commenter, whether the recipient is a fellow blogger or just someone who follows and comments regularly.”
From Angie …. http://kyangel17.com/
“One version has a caption that says “For Blogging Excellence”. This one doesn’t. It’s actually for the angels in my life. And that means all of you who read my posts. So everyone who reads this stop by and pick one up. No strings, no rules. You are all my angels, and I can’t name you all. So I will probably just stop in at every blog and let you know it’s here. And feel free to pass it on to all your friends and followers. You can never have enough angels in your life.”
From “Idealistic Rebel” …. http://idealisticrebel.wordpress.com/
It has German origins – the word “liebster” has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart, beloved person, darling, dear, darling. More definitions: beloved, liked very much; affectionate, loving favorite, preferred above others; liked or loved above others.
From “Moorbey” …. http://moorbey.wordpress.com/
“When you consider nominating a fellow blogger for the Versatile Blogger Award, consider the quality of the writing, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page. Or, of course, the quality of the photographs and the level of love displayed in the taking of them.
Honor those bloggers who bring something special to your life whether every day or only now and then.
And, have fun!”
Anyway, today I’m bending the rules for these awards.
Anyone who stops at this post, feel free to take them and display them proudly in your blog. If you are here, you are:
A dear, versatile, beloved loyal friend who is one of the angels in my life!!
We ALL are connected through this web we WEAVE!!
We ALL are ONE!!
