I Grew Up, but Never Forgot the Summers of the Sixties

Like JLo sings, I never forget I am Jenny from the Block. Do we ever forget our origins, our childhood years, even if we try? Those memories are so embedded in our permanent memory, they are hard to erase. Many details fade away, but just as many persist. When Snowmeltssomewhere, posted about Australia a flood of memories were brought back in a flash. Despite growing up at opposite ends of the earth, there was one thing in common that bound us.

Blue Skies – About Me

Lorelle is relatively new to the WordPress world, and in support of her, I have decided to accept the nomination to participate in the Blue sky challenge.

Versatile Blogger Award

Many, many thanks to Millie Thom over at Bringing History to Life for nominating me for the Versatile blogger award back in January, when I was off gallivanting around the southern capitals.

Whilst I am very honoured by her attributing the award to me, I will fulfill some of the conditions of award in disclosing seven facts about myself, and nominate certain several blogs I feel are definitely worth a visit.

Personal faith versus Public Religion

Where is the boundary drawn? Do the public institutions of religion enhance or restrict the evolution and development of personal faith? If a person becomes 'enlightened', do they really need the guidance and advice of clergy who carry their own opinionated dogma and experience? Can the clergy really provide an impartial view?
