The Brief History of ‘The Inspiring Muse Award’
I’ve been ‘Shamelessly Promoting Someone Else’ for as many years as I’ve been online and I decided to take it one-step further. Despite the internet’s reputation for trolls, I’ve found that I interact with a brilliant collection of people on a daily basis. Each offers a gift whether it’s art, knowledge, a story, or just a well-timed joke. I wanted a way to thank them for inspiring me that was more permanent than a typed ‘thank you’.
This is a personal award that I bestow on people who I feel are excellent examples of different aspects of the creative community, or of humanity in general. Anyone I interact with is eligible to receive it, and it is awarded once each month… except this time.
Sometimes someone extra special happens along, and it is my pleasure to announce June & July’s winner, Neil Singh.
On his website he lists his mission as being “To be a good father who creates partnerships that seek justice.” This isn’t just a nice motto; he actually lives it and travels the globe doing good work.
…I am on a sabbatical from my career of 30 years. I am volunteering with an organization called UrbanPromise with several projects in Vancouver, in Honduras, in Malawi, and elsewhere…
