On the 12th February 2014, the Half-Eaten Mind was nominated for a brand new award by memoirist and writer Irene A. Waters. We are now the proud owners of the ‘Field of Flowers Award‘. This award is given to bloggers who have helped make the world a field of flowers for their fellow writers, photographers and in fact, anything else you would care to think of.
The Field of Flowers Award is a kind and joyous award invented by our good friend Patty of Petite Magique. Based in the Netherlands, Patty has been a strong supporter of the Half-Eaten Mind’s writing for many months and she is also the inventor behind the Semper Fidelis award which we were nominated for in August 2013.
Irene is a memoir and general writer behind the awesome blog “Reflections and Nightmares“. She considers herself lucky and grateful in life, whilst maintaining a compassionate rapport with people and animals. Her blog is a written account of her journey in enlightenment and self-discovery where she collects and notes for prosperity life’s learning lessons. By blogging, Irene hopes to make sense of the past, look at the present and have a fun time while doing so.
As well as her writing career, Irene also photographs and has a chapter on her blog about the many animals that call her company home, including silkworms, finches and dogs among others. She has a lot of compassion and friendliness with our fellow animals.
I would like to thank Irene for choosing me as one of the Field of Flowers nominees. May her life be as sweet, beautiful and full of tranquility as a field of blooms on a gently breezing spring’s day.
Here is Irene’s summary of the Half-Eaten Mind:
“Vijay Shah graduated in media studies and has a well written entertaining blog but not only this the assistance given to new bloggers is immense, sowing the seed in the field so to speak”

Especially look out for his panorama images of Thailand and London. A must see.
