A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

Better late than never...I hope.

Okay, I became so behind and totally overwhelmed by life and then these wonderful awards started to come my way. The comments about me or my blog really warmed my heart. The only problem was that I didn't have the energy to put a post together for them, so now I am two months behind. So please forgive me, my untimeliness has nothing to do with my degree of appreciation. I really do appreciate each and everyone of you and the awards.

Well, way back on 7/27/08, my hilarious friend Bradley of How is Bradley? Honored me with the Arte Y Pico award. Then, I waited long enough to be honored with the same award from my courageous friend Svasti of Svasti: A Journey From Assault to Wholeness on 9/5/08. If you click on the name or the award it will take you to the site that explains what it is. There is an English section, so scroll down. It also give you the following rules:


1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award, creativity, design, interesting material, and also contrubuites to the blogger community, no matter of language.

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award-winning, has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog thathas given her or him the ward itself.

4) Award-winning and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y pico"blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) To show these rules.

On 8/20/08, my gentle friend Precious Rock of One Bipolar Life blessed me with two awards, Sharing the Love and Friendship Awards. These two you are supposed to bless three other bloggers.

On 9/19/08, Immi from MigraineChow my new friend recognized my blogwith the Brillante Weblog Award. On 8/16/08, my honest friend bluegirl from Rantings and Ramblings did the same. Also, within the this last month the wise John D. from Storied Mind ~ Writing to Recover Life from Depression recognized my blog with the same award. This one you are supposed to recognize seven other blogs.

Well, I am supposed to pass these along to others, but many of you have received these already. Since I don't have time to check every blog out, I am just going to list some of my favorite blogs that I know did not receive these and if you did accept the compliment again. You can take all or none. Pass it on if you feel like it and if you do don't forget to link me. Oh, and don't forget to check out the amazing blogs from those who honored me!!!

Here is my list:

  1. Desire to Heal by Tamara
  2. Nippercat's Home by Mary
  3. Soulful Sepulcher by Stephany
  4. justAna by Ana
  5. Investigations and Ruminations
  6. Disjointed Thoughts

You were on my list but I've seen you had already won "Brillante Weblog".
I'm very happy you've added me because I also like your blog and the way you express yourself.
I didn't receive the "Arte y Pico".
Take care!

etta said...

Thanks Clueless-
I am quite honored to be recognized by you. I also rarely get around to writing the follow-up posts (I get too overwhelmed!)with these awards, but like you, that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the recognition. Thank you again so much!

Tamara (TC) Staples said...

Thank you, Clueless. You are so sweet! This is only my second award. The first one I received a few days ago and have not posted yet. I will get this up early next week. Wow, really appreciated!!!!


Clueless said...

Tamara, you are the sweet one and well deserving of all of the awards...they are all yours to take or not.

Immi said...

Ooooo another list of great blogs. That's my favorite part about awards. I do love your blog. Well, sometimes I sort of hate it because I get reminded of myself and my sordid past so much, but that's when it's the most useful. So that's cool. You deserve the awards.

Clueless said...

Thank you and I understand about reading my blog. Enjoy the list...I like that part too.

Unknown said...

Clueless said...

Mary, thank you for the compliments. You are so deserving also...your poetry hits deeply.

jumpinginpuddles said...

Clueless said...


Well, I thank you!!

You deserve the multiple awards. And its never too late to acknowledge them.

I've read a few of your recent posts and it sounds like you're doing very well in getting more of the stuff out.

I know what you mean when you say that you are starting to believe it happened.

Stay strong! xo

Clueless said...

Svasti, Thank you for your award. It was a bit of a shock when I went to put this together and had so many and duplicates.

Yes, "starting to believe" is a strange concept because before I believe and I didn't or, at least, denial was stronger.

take care,

GirlBlue said...

Clueless said...

GirlBlue, Thank you ((((girlblue))))
