If you have been reading my blog (glad you're here if this is your first time) you will know I love Christmas and visiting blogs so I am sharing that joy with others and do a little wassailing to my favorite blogs and people. If you don't know what wassailing is here is a definition: The House-Visiting wassail, very much similar to caroling, is the practice of people going door-to-door singing Christmas carols.
Last year I cheerfully knocked on the doors of inspiring individuals, this year I want to share the season's joy with 'groups' I have joined. So come along with me throughout the month of December as I make a wassailing to blogs, websites and a few individuals I find inspiring, funny, educational or plainly a must read.
Today we're wassailing Bernice McFadden and her blog Naki. I can't even explain the affinity I have with Ms. McFadden. I've never met her and yet I love her voice. The first time I 'heard it was on 'twitter' of course. Something about the way her words flow, her dedicated submersion in life just inspires me.
Ms McFadden is the author of Sugar, Glorious, so many others and most recently she is waiting for the January release of
Gathering of Waters and the re-release of The Warmest December,which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. I am so in awe of her. Makes me wonder how I missed hearing of her in life.
