I’ve been tagged again!!!

I have been tagged by On Windy Days at:  http://onwindydays.wordpress.com/ .  Well Windy–I’ll try my best.  Ha!

The Rules

1. I must post the rules. 2. I must answer the questions the tagger listed for me  3. I must create (or reuse) 11 questions for those I tag. 4. I must tag 11 people. 5. I must let them know they’ve been tagged.

My questions and answers:

1. What is your favorite quote, who is it from, and why?

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”  – Henry David Thoreau

This is one of my favourite quotes.  I have many.  🙂

2. Which song can bring you to tears or reminds you of your childhood?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnWKehsOXu8 – The warmth of God’s love always brings me to tears.  I love this song.

3. What is one thing that keeps you going day in and day out?

My heart.  Ha!

4. Why did you start blogging?

I was looking for a place to express myself.

5. Is there one thing that you regret not doing in the past? If so, would you be willing to share it what that was here?

Regarding one particular person in my past–I regret that he felt unwanted.  That was the furthest thing from the truth.

6. What is one thing that you saw that restored your faith in the human race?

There is much love in the world, all one has to do is simply look for it.

7. Rain or Sun?

I can write about the rain often, only because I know that the sun will never let me down.

8. What movie had the most impact on you? (A movie that just really made you challenge your view on anything)

Singing In The Rain.  One should never stop singing no matter what.

9. List five words that describe your character.

passionate, interested, caring, expressive and determined

10. What is your greatest fear?

It used to be a fear of butterflies and moths, but I have overcome this now.  Butterflies and moths are again beautiful.

11. What do you ultimately want to accomplish in the days to come?

I want to complete the final draft of one particular screenplay that I have written and live to see it on the big screen.

Now – I get to tag some people.  Ha!  This should be fun.  I tag:













All of the above are blogs that I have recently discovered and have enjoyed visiting.

My questions for them are:

1.  What types of things do you do for inspiration?

2.  Who is your favourite artist or recording artist?

3.  Who is your favourite poet or writer?

4.  What animal do you most associate yourself with?

5.  Name one of your goals in life.

6.  What is your favourite meal?

7.  What would you like to tell the world?

I will notify all of the above at some point tomorrow.  It is 2:04 A.M. and the sandman is calling me.

With best regards,

the days of yore

so you sit there

churning around ideas

slipping further and further

into a pair of slippers

soulful distraction

you turn on the tube

“remain seated

for recycled laughs

cream yet to be butter

stay tuned

for the days of yore

retro places

the days of your pain

brought to you by

short and snappy personalities”

you proceed carefully

read the star, the sun

the globe & mail

take a look at now

colored socks

knitted leggings

new front door designs

a place where shoes take you places

suggest answers

and the van gogh exhibit

is way too far to get to easily

so you wonder

what might the next issue bring

another motivational patchwork quilt?

lessons with clay?

sunbleached ideas?

pop-up autumn advertisements?

“hello fall”

you return to the laughs

snack from a healthy tray of pre-made delights

wipe mouth with serviette

stare at screen

there’s a new guy up now

you crank up the volume

listen to dishwasher safe words

oh he’s good with metaphor

you envision your mother’s full clothesline

in the backyard

blowing in wind

as if it were yesterday

birds flying overhead

preparing to…

she’ll have to rewash those sheets, I guess

suddenly you tune in

to cheers and applause

another new face

to excite the imagination

“annoy a few listeners

amuse the rest”

that’s what he’s all about

songs of mental high notes

delivered with sincere commitment

creative energy flowing

a first-aid kit just in case

those days of yores need bandaging
