Tuesday's Question! (Happy Clap!)
Tomorrow's question is a good one! Want a hint?
Have you read many books or seen many movies lately?
Oops, I guess I shouldn't ask a question with a question, ...or
answer a question with a question? Well...let me say, I think
a great way to meet people is to ask questions. It's also a great way to have, well...fun!
I love characters in books and movies because they entertain us with people and situations we can relate too! Art imitates life, and well, books and movies are art, ...but of course you know that. Anyway, the characters in books and movies often share mannerisms, ideas, values, and many other characteristics with us, and people close to us. Have you ever seen or read about a character in a film, or book that reminds you of someone you know? Or better yet yourself?
Yes, I know, you have haven't you? One of my friends has given each member of our group of high school buddies the name of the character we remind them of on the situation comedy, Friends.
She refers to me as Rachael, ...yes, I know at dingy head, and my friend isn't too far off base. That is because, again, art imitates life! Not to get all wordy or anything.
So ...I thought... what a good way to understand the people we communicate with via the internet, especially my blogging buddies, whose voices and mannerisms we cannot see, I thought we could, ...wait a minute!
I can't ask the question! You'll have to be here tomorrow at 8 am for that!
Have a great nights sleep, and I'll see you in the AM! :)
Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
