Day #3 of my challenge (I was gone for the weekend.)
Hello! I love hearing about your side of the world and sharing mine with you too! This entry comes from some questions from Cee’s Photogrpahy challenge of SHARE YOUR WORLD (SYW)
HERE ARE MY ANSWERS
What is your favorite cheese? All cheeses are my friend! I have some favorites, but I am still positive I haven’t found all my favorites yet. Some great contenders are: Havarti – great in ANY sauce or stand alone. My brother puts it in Chicken Fried Steak and gravy. I like Asiago in Italian dishes…and an easily accessed favorite of course is always cheddar – sharp, medium or mild. I’m all for trying new cheese, especially while traveling!
Are you left or right handed?
I’m left handed. Back when I grew up left handed, it was considered evil to be left handed, and I would get my hand tied behind my back. When I ate at the dinner table, I had to eat at the end so as not to distract or interrupt anyone else. Because I wanted to sit somewhere else, I learned to eat right handed. There were no left handed scissors, so I learned to do more precise things like cutting with scissors or a knife with my right hand.
But all sports and writing are left handed.
Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?
I know it’s important to exercise my body, and I enjoy it. But I PREFER to exercise my mind! I DEVOUR every piece of information I can get – books, video, conversations with people.
Complete this sentence: Hot days are … GREAT! I enjoy the energy and warmth of the sun
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Having time to celebrate twenty years of marriage to my best friend. We had alone and quiet time from the busyness of our lives. It was awesome!
I am a writer, and I haven’t been writing except curriculum and proposals and not as much fun as my creative writing, so I’ve decided to give myself a 30 day challenge. I might use prompts; I might use pictures; I might just be silly, but my goal is to do some creative writing, even if it’s a little bit. I’m giving myself permission to write the worst Cr_ _…but at least I’m writing and getting my voice moving and working again. I have some books to finish!
Today’s prompt is BUMBLE. I am grateful to other sites who help a girl out.
Of sunshine and splendo
While watering my sunflowers’glorious towering stocks I found this beauty peeking from the back row clamoring for my attention. What a surprise and a sweet reminder of my journey with them last year. It was my way of dealing with my dad’s death and feeling him close to me. It was also a most wonderful way to “live poetry” by watching their cycle and comparing it to my own
I live poetry challenge for you: Watch a life cycle of something from beginning to end. It doesn’t have to be flowers or even plants..maybe butterflies or turtled or kids. Record it by drawing or writing or pictures. It is the act of recording in some way and comparing and contrasting it to your own that keeps you present and observant…looking at things in a new way.
Today is August 1st, new beginnings. for a brandy new month, my 100th POST! I was inspired with these words from a poem by Micheline,Jean Louis and she agreed to start us off! We are going to go with the anaphora (repeating phrase) as well. It keeps the message thriving!!! Happy writing.
The World Needs
Compassion Understanding Tolerance Integrity And Forgiveness,from all of us to become habitable for all walk of life.
The world needs Love Hope Child-like wonder Pure Joy Acceptance of one another And their humanness.
small birds that sit in teacups kettle drums with occasional hiccups friendly spiders and long-leggity beasties times of wonder free and easy
the world needs computers to aid in our building invisible bridges to faraway countries sheep with their legs one at each corner and cows that stand up to tell us it’s warmer
the world needs our loving and people forgiving laughter to flow out in healing believing dreams to come true under stars safe our nights and days where we learn to make friends not fight
and now most of all the world needs our time to notice to care when we’re doing just fine to reach out a hand sit on the grass have patience to learn ways of beetle and wasp
the world needs koalas cute grinning from trees fluffy-head thistles kind old dock leaves wolves to sing home again in joy rain or sunny and bear to gurr happiness with nosefuls of honey
the world needs stories to tell and to grow adventurers wild and those who stay home in fire and earth ocean and storm what the world needs always is everyone to care.
The World Needs:
Belief Teaches my heart that All is Possible, All is Ready Standing, Waiting upon my own Acceptance, My own Belief, my own Unfettering Faith To Set Free the wheels of the universe And Create my Heart’s Desire; Yet in this dark and weary place, Where fear crushes dreams And doubt hangs hopes, What is Remarkably Possible if often considered improbable, And Faith sits down in the shadows, her hands tied. The slippery slope of lost Hope Dashes Charisma against the rocks and shakes Vigor to the core; Compressing Life to only what is seen, felt, heard. Lost are the Whispers, Lost are the PotentPromises that Move Mountains, Lost are the Smiles of Satisfaction and Purpose. Still, even in this dark place, where Angels wait, muted by skepticism; When all is clouded o’re and dim, One Word shall Lift the Indomitable Spirit, One Affirmation will Raise the Irrepressible Soul; Shattering cynicism, Collapsing disbelief, And Building Bridges to the Unimagined.
Courage and a cheerful smile, Kind hearts that go the extra mile.
Beauty in the human heart Reflected in our work and art
Vision to prize higher goals, Love purity and long lost souls.
Minds that will meet you more than half, A good old-fashioned belly laugh.
Hope when we hang on the edge of a funnel Light at the end of the darkest tunnel
The helping hand to pull us out, Forgive, restore, remove our doubt
Triumphal music of the spheres To melt away the hurtful years
Courage to conquer Giant Despair And reflect God’s goodness everywhere.
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN!!!
What do you think the world needs?
Just as before, you can add your contribution in the comment section of this poem, & I will place them in the order they come. I will put your name (contributor) at the end of the piece in the same color as your contribution and the names will be in the same order as well. Happy writing!
You, who are full of the most delicious words, who have the gift of story and poetry, who use these delectable creatures every day. Give me your words! I promise to use them wisely. The groups I work with LOVE them! boondoggle, bamboozle, thingamajigger, whatchamacallit, swagger, bouffant…which reminds me. Below is a video which will trigger fun sound words right out of you! (G rated- You need this version because the teens’ faces say it all!)
– Bulbous Bouffant.
I use these words for my work in Poetry Therapy, a medium which assists others in healing.
Okay my friends…I was inspired by a poem I read yesterday that involved the tastes of a place. And food brings about joyous memories with friends and families and those special people we love. So, here’s my challenge:
Write a poem about the tastes of YOUR place…and then maybe include one of your favorite recipes…it can be from that place your wrote about, or one of your favorite recipes…I think it would be really cool to gather recipes of places from around the world….Then I can wake up and say things like, I’d like to travel to Austrailia today or Georgia, and pull a recipe out and be reminded of you! Besides, my recipe box needs new tastes! ENJOY!
JUST LEAVE YOUR LINK IN YOUR COMMENTS SO WE CAN FIND YOU AND PING BACK HERE. WE WON’T MAKE ONE LONG POEM ON THIS…IT WILL JUST BE LIKE A COOKBOOK AROUND THE WORLD.
Though I live in Idaho now…my strongest memories of taste are from Texas…
