Through the Opera Glasses - 46 - Blogosphere Event - One World One Heart

My comments are now closed - thank you to everyone who participated. This has been an amazing event!

I just love stumbling upon blog events. I came upon this one when I popped over to Robin's blog, Around the Island, last week.

Robin started the Summer Stock Sunday series last year, which of course is something for which I can't wait to start up again. I'm already thinking about photos I can post.

So I was enchanted by her Magic Carpet Ride post for the One World One Heart event, which I'm just squeaking in under the wire to join, as sign-up time ends at 11:50 PM Pacific time tonight.

Lisa at A Whimsical Bohemian "feels it is imperative to have a 'tribe' of kindred spirits to help feed one's soul." As I begin my fourth year of blogging, I marvel and cherish the friendships I've made through my blog, and look forward to many more years of laughter, sharing and amazement with all of you.

As of this posting, Lisa has nearly 1000 bloggers signed up to this event. "This international event transcends geographical location, socio economics, political affiliation, religious's a coming together like the giant community we are on this planet."

Lisa - all I can say is - AWESOME.

In a spirit of giving, participants offer something to give away to a lucky winner, whose name shall be drawn on FEBRUARY 15th. Check back next week to see if it might be you!

All you need to do is leave a comment, with a way to reach you in case you are chosen. If you post a comment as Anonymous, please include your email address so I can get back to you.

My prize offering is A Numerology. What's a numerology, you may ask? It's very similar to a horoscope, but the information comes from your name and birthdate.

Good luck to everyone playing, and I hope to see lots of wonderful new blogs in the coming week as I roam the blogosphere, visiting bloggers who cherish the idea of One World One Heart.

I have made many dear blog friends from four previous blog events I've joined: Kailana's Advent Blog Tour, Mimi Lenox's Blog Blast For Peace, Kim's Blog Improvement Project and 5 Minutes For Mom's Ultimate Blog Party.

Who knows where One World One Heart will lead me?
