Monday Muse - Blogs that Inspire

If the blogroll on my right sidebar were a bookshelf, then Trailing Light would be an elegant, slender volume of poetry. This is the poetry blog of Beyond the Fields We know author, Cate. There are exquisite photographs and eloquent poems - haiku and free verse. Each entry is thought provoking, and as with her other blog, one must slow down, hold very still, and savor the moments as one reads Cate's nearly flawless writing.

Two Frog Home is the online home of Kathie, who once wrote the blog "Simple Katie." I've long enjoyed reading her simple, practical tips for budget-friendly, earth friendly living. I guess you could say, she's just plain friendly! She keeps a running tally of the food she has put up for long term storage and points readers toward practical advice elsewhere on the web. Recently, she and her husband have moved into a new home. I look forward to watching them turn their new property into a small scale homestead. Kathie's friendly, well-written narratives, keep me coming back, with interest, time and time again.

This spring, I made a colorful new friend via this blogging community. Linda, of Vulture Peak Muse, is a talented artist who lives in California. Her gorgeous paintings are alive with saturated color. Though health issues sometimes prevent Linda from participating in our Sunday Strolls, when she does her photographs have a special artistic flair. Her blog is a carnival of color and beauty: from roses lit by a golden sun, to a black and white border collie named Belle, to vivid, arresting artwork.
