Active Rain Gem: Lola Audu, Founder of "Fraiche-Aire by Active Rain"




Lola Audu

I love this group's description:

"Fraiche-Aire by Active Rain is a place to share the unusual, the amusing, the amazing and interesting aspects of your daily practice. Like a breath of fresh air after the rain, this is a spot to be refreshed, relax and then move on to make someone else's day just a little better and brighter. Post your ah-ha moments, the things that make you smile and encounters which have touched & transformed your life. Update 4/08: Fraiche Aire is not a political forum. We understand that there are different deeply held views and feel that posts on politics are best suited for groups with that specific focus."

As of this post there are 250 writers participating in this forum. They happen to be some of the best and brightest Active Rain has to offer. If you haven't stopped by, you do not know what you are missing. I was introduced to this group by my good friend Lizette Fitzpatrick, who happens to be a member and one of those very talented writers previously mentioned.

In Lola Audu's post entitled, "Degage...Rebuilding the Heartside Community with the Mortar of Love & Dignity!" she speaks about issues surrounding abandoned homes and abandoned people. My favorite quote from her article is, "To love a thing or someone is to proffer one of life's greatest gifts. Love clothes life with dignity and respect. Love grants us the courage to face life. When we loose the ability to give love to ourselves and others, our dwelling places also begin to reflect the winter of our despair." You can read the full post here.

In Lizette Fitzpatrick's post entitled, "Decorate Rooms In Your House With Just A Sharpie," she shows us just how much she truly loves a creative idea, "especially when it has something to do with decorating a room in the house. Some of the best ideas are not expensive. Even if they don't cost much they do require your time and patience..." If you want to see what she has in store for you, read the full article here and don't forget to click on the embedded links. You're in for a treat.

BTW, I am a card carrying member of Lola Audu's group and if you haven't thought about joining, you may want to take a virtual ride over there and check them out. Once you get to know them I think you wont give the decision to join a second thought. They are truly a nice group of bloggers to hang out with on-line and have some very interesting perspectives about life and real estate.

Enjoy your visit! Regards, Carolyn.

C - if you are supporting this group I'm on my way there now.  We seem to have a lot of the same interests in common.  Children, animals, Shakespeare (love him). Love Club Chaos and all it stands for and I am honored to be a member.
