I should have done this a couple of days ago, but I somehow lost track of my own schedule. I just realized that it is the last day today, and I sincerely apologize to Gunta who invited me to join this circle a couple of days back.
The yearly Līgo celebration happens every summer solstice in Latvia.
During that time, participants adorn their heads with Līgos of flowers, oak leaves,
grasses and plants. Then they join circles around bonfires and celebrate life,
and appreciation of each other.
The virtual Līgo Circle of Appreciation goes like this:
For a duration of 22 days, starting on 1st October 2012, we will be inviting 2 bloggers per day
to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation.
PLEASE NOTE: This is an Appreciation, NOT an Award.
To fully participate in the Līgo Circle of Appreciation:
* Complete this sentence about blogging: ”A great blog is…
* Refer back to the blogger who invited you
Gunta of Movin’On has included me in this virtual circle of appreciation. Gunta is a talented writer and photographer who currently lives in Oregon. She has Latvian roots, thus, familiar with most of the cultural practices in Europe. I have to say that I truly appreciate being connected with her through blogging since I constantly learn a thing or two in her posts. You should see it for yourself. Please click here to visit her blog.
For me, a great blog is one I can relate with and where I learn something new. It also takes me to places I have never been before and introduces me to cultures I have never experienced. There are a lot of blogs out there that have met this criteria, but since I am only able to choose 2, here are the bloggers whom I would like to invite into the circle:
I write what I like – A seasoned adventurer’s blog about the outdoors
Jolene’s Journey – A runner, teacher, and traveler’s blog about life
I am adding here some pictures of fall in my part of the world.
Have a great week, everyone!
