FIELD OF FLOWERS AWARD: HEM nominated by Irene A Waters

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”


▪Thank the blogger who nominated you

                “A Field Of Flowers

▪Let your nominees know that you nominated them



Alex is a GCSE student and good friend who is an avid photographer of British wildlife and scenery. He is also a technology buff and has ventured into news reporting. Right now Alex has produced daily roundups of the successes of Team GB and others in the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, including individual triumphs and medal tallies of the best performing nations.


Ajay is a long-established blogger from Mumbai in western India who enjoys photography, both his own productions and found pieces from the length and breadth of the Internet. He is a kindly soul with a special affection for children and animals, and is one of the most prolific bloggers in terms of post output I have ever known.


Don Charisma, or DC as he is often known as, is based in Thailand but has links to the U.K. He very much oozes charisma through his writing. Multi-talented, he regularly takes pictures of the life and spaces he encounters in Thai society and couples this with his thought-provoking posts on many subjects. Especially look out for his panorama images of Thailand and London. A must see.


Meet Kendall F. Person, aka the Public Blogger, master of a place where writing is a performance art and every post is a show. He regularly organises blogger awards and writes powerful and emotive short stories with which he has built up a massive community.


Wendy is a positive and friendly Singaporean blogger who is also a great jewellery designer. She markets her creations via her cute and heartwarming blog “Clouds and Cups”. She has been a good friend who has brought her own wisdom and insightful commentary to the Half-Eaten Mind many times over.


Run by Tomas, this Spanish-language blog is all about fine wines and fine films. His perfect analyses of the best products coming out of Spain’s multitudes of vineyards really bring the wines to life.


Cindy is a globetrotting photographer living out on an American ranch called the Holler. Her photography is highly intense, detailed and a visual celebration of the very beauty that the natural world embodies. Right now she is on a tour of the US and British Virgin Islands taking in the local sights, both man-made and natural and keeping a photo-diary of her adventures.

Congratulations to all the nominees and thanks so much for making my blogging experience as varied and calming as the serenity and luminescence of a field of flowers. The original nomination article can be located in the sources below.
