Was given my first award by The Higher Voice a couple days ago on Thursday, May 5.

There are a couple of rules to receiving The Versatile Blogger Award. First, you have to thank the person who gave it you by linking back to their post. Second, you have to tell seven things about yourself. Third, you have to award 15 recently discovered new blogs.
Here are seven things about me:
1.  I’m not just a blogger.  I used to write fiction.
2.  In the early to mid 1990’s I was published sporadically in the SF/F/H small press.
3.  I lost interest in writing after 2000 and I didn’t even miss it.  It wasn’t until I started this blog that my love of writing returned.
4.  I’m a professional photographer.  Check out my images at CJP Photos.
5.  Before Wisdom and Life, I wrote two other blogs.  I’ve since retired them.  One was a book review blog.  The other was was a photography blog.  (No Photos published, just news, tools and useful   information.)
6.  I’m a voracious reader, sometimes reading as many as two books a week.  I read EVERYTHING.
7.  I love my day job.  Not many people can say that.
I hereby give this award to the following blogs I recently discovered, listed here in alphabetical order.
