It is amazing to sit and think who may have influences your lives without even having to met them in person. I have been encouraged by many authors whom I admire like Maya Angelou, Emily Dickerson, Walt Whitman and many others.
Here is others I admire and respect:
Oprah Winfrey (she got the world reading again),
Queen Latifah (so multi-talented and spunky),
Ellen Degeneres been following her career since the 90s,
Prince (his amazing range and talent as a musician,
(I named a goat after her and would now vote for her as President of the US. Simply because she has learned how to be more diplomatic by being Secretary of State.)
Etta James, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Melissa Ethridge
Shartey my adopted eBay blog mother
Grumpy Gramps gives so much of himself and inspires our boys
Kelley the amazing cat rescue woman
Jan raising awareness for MND,
Julia Childs, I remember watching her cooking shows (in black and white) as a child thus sparking my love of cooking.
Kat for reasons that are personal and dear as she is begining her life again.
Judy for her ability to bounce back after being tossed about.
Then again I have taken inspiration and hope from all the bloggers I read. I also thoroughly enjoy my Facebook account thanks Mr. Zuckerman. Just think of all the folks who touch your lives silently everyday. Perhaps if we all took time out to think of more positive thoughts and send those thoughts up --our world would not be as angry....?
