♫ Ay oh ay oh ay oh ay
And the voices rang like the angels sing
We’re singing, ay oh ay oh ay oh ay
And we danced on into the night
Ay oh ay oh, ay oh ay oh
And we danced on into the night…♫
Lyrics and music by: Chad Kroeger, recorded by Santana.
First let me say congratulations to all the 2016 Clawbie winners, finalists, those nominated as well as all those who write long into the night, hoping their words find an audience and receptive eye. Thank you all who have taken the time to read these words and nominate my humble blog.
When Steve Matthews, Emma Durand-Wood and Jordan Furlong first created the Clawbie awards back in 2006, I had no expectation that I would ever receive one. Now, looking back, I find comfort in what Jonathan Sacks said:
“Follow your passion. Nothing – not wealth, success, accolades or fame – is worth spending a lifetime doing things you don’t enjoy.”
I would have to say that not a word would have been written on thoughtfullaw.com if I didn’t enjoy the process of writing and blogging. I have been most fortunate in finding these humble words found a receptive audience and as a result I have met many much more interesting people than I otherwise would have as a result of the blog.
To me the Hall of Fame award sets another goal – to ensure that if I write anything now, that it measures up to what has gone before and at least equals all the other blogs similarly awarded.
Congratulations to the other Hall of Fame award winners:
- Avoid a Claim (Dan Pinnington)
- Law of Work (David Doorey)
- Michael Geist (Michael Geist)
- Slaw (Collaborative)
as well as to all the many writers who work trying to find those words that dance long into the night.
