Rainer Maria Rilke, was a Bohemian-Austrian poet. Among English-language readers, his best-known works of poetry is the Duino Elegies; his most famous prose work is the Letters To A Young Poet. I received my first copy of Letters to a Young Poet as a present when I was in my twenties. It was an inspiration and I highly recommend it to anyone who has aspirations of poetry in their soul.

Shine On Award

Shine On Award

Thank you Ganesh for the wonderful surprise award of the “Shine On Award.” And your wonderful words about bloggers on WordPress. We are all a pretty amazing group. I keep getting to know more and more people here. It is a world that expands ones mind and heart and soul. So supportive and friendly and amazingly creative. I will place my “Shine On Award” in a special place on my blog. It is rather like one of my new favorite groups: “Pink Floyd’s” song “Shine On You Crazy Diamond.” I love that song, actually rather addicted to it. Thanks again Ganesh for coming into my world and life here on WordPress and being so generous to me and so many others. jk jennifer-the secret keeper :-)

I am going to borrow some words that Ganesh wrote on the post he wrote to present many different awards to many different bloggers. These are my sentiments also and what he wrote was so perfectly written. “Over the last couple of months, there were a lot of kind-hearted bloggers who have conferred upon me numerous awards and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for considering my blog for these awards.” Thank you Ganesh and everyone who has followed my blog “the secret keeper” and for presenting such creative and inspiring material on all of your blogs for me to enjoy and to be moved by, sometimes tears, sometimes laughter, definite smiles. thoughts to make me go deeper inside of my own mind, heart and soul. It is such a wonderful world here in the blogosphere. May everyone have a very HAPPY NEW YEAR in 2013. Hopefully, we will all find our dreams and wishes listened to and become a reality in the GOOD sense of the word. Love Peace Joy and Bliss I wish to all of you. jk the secret keeper Jennifer Kiley j. kiley…
