I love the A to Z challenge for the opportunity to meet and discover some amazing blogs. One of those is Nouveau Scarecrow by author Michael Cahill. Michael’s subtitle is “A ragged soul investigating the human condition,” and he does an amazing job of it. He is a rare talent who has a way of touching other “ragged souls” through his words.
I left a comment on his blog telling him he was like the Bob Ross of writing to me. If you have never seen Bob Ross, he too is worth checking out. Though he died in 1995, his art classes are still available for purchase and some can be seen on You-tube. As he painted his "happy little trees," he had a way of teaching and painting that just relaxed you and soothed the soul. Michael has that same affect on me with his words. I could go back again and again and reread his posts.
How many blogs do you feel like that about?

Michale Cahill's prose can also be read at Word Worth, the online magazine of ideas and the arts.
