Duet Awards

Music used to play a huge role in my life.  As a baby, I quieted when my mother sang or played tapes for me.  Playing the piano began at such a young age that I cannot remember being unable to read music.  Then for years I took voice lessons, sang in choir, or devoted my time to the piano.

However, my voice is now weak and unreliable  because of restricting food.  Pain fills my lungs along with oxygen whenever I attempt to sing.  For months, I have pretended that I did not care.  After all, writing is my passion not singing.  Music does not need to be part of of my life.

As much as I tried to forget music, it remained close to my heart.  So, I continued to listen to my favorite songs and expanded the genres and artists that I enjoyed.  Walking through the woods near my house, I always dance along the path to a CD.

Thus, when I found the blog hopeandloveradio, I loved it right away.  Slesser1013 posts music videos and lyric videos of wonderful songs.  Sometimes, they will be tunes that I know and love while other times the songs are new to me.  You really should check out some of the posts!

Anyway, hopeandloveradio just nominated me for the Duet Awards: the I Am Part of the WordPress Family Award and the Imagine Award.  I am excited to accept them and pass them on.  Here they are and their rules as well as my nominations.
