to cassy at reach for more--aspira a mas, who gave me the arte y pico award! loosely translated from spanish, arte y pico means art and spice, but the spirit of which really translates to something like "wow. the best art. over the top!" . . . at any rate, the award is passed on to blogs that others can learn from, that inspire, that make people smile or think, and/or that are doing something special.

here's what cassy had to say: "LanaBanana, at American Fool - for her bad-ass attitude which I love, and because she is probably someone I would love to hang out with in real life. I appreciate how she says what she wants to say, sin pelo en la lengua!"

i am very, very grateful. but more than the award, what i'm most thankful to cassy for is her on-going encouragement and inspiration (seriously, people, you have to check out her blog. her poetry is moving without being pretentious. heartfelt and thought-provoking, you'd be a fool not to go read her writing).

many, many, MANY thanks, amiga . . .

if you would like to give this award, here are the rules:

1) you have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and contribution to the blogger community, no matter what language.

2) each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) each award-winning blog has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of the arte y pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) to show these rules.

again, cassy, muchisimas gracias . . .
