Thank you to Cloudscome for tagging me for the Thinking Blogger Award. Now, I'm required to tag five bloggers who make me think. This is only difficult in that I don't get to tag Cloudscome herself who writes wonderful posts about children's books and wonderful wonderful haikus. Please make sure to read her Langston Hughes haiku. Okay, here are my five (in no particular order):
1) Twisted Curlz: another mixed chick writer who writes about identity, race and her engagement with life. She's in the thick of discovery and I'm always happy to read her blog.
2) A Birth Project: another mixed chick actress and student and deep thinker. Read about her one-woman show about being a transracial adoptee.
3)That Black Girl: an African-American woman married to a white man who lives in my old neighborhood. She's got a lot to say about race and identity (you can see a theme with the blogs I've picked) that other people won't say.
so enough about race, here are two other favorites that make me tune in in a different way:
4) Wish Jar Journal, a guerilla artist and woo-er of the muse. She's a visual artist but her insights into the creative life worth living are wonderful. Plus she encourages play!
5) Chapter XVII: an anonymous friend who has introduced me to some great blogs and books and other things. You won't be able to guess the particulars of WHO this particular chick is. She has multitudes and has wonderful insights into the everyday business of life.
According to the meme, all you guys who have been tagged must tag your own five. Can't wait to see what you all have to say.
