FSO- Favorite Things

....Aside from the fact that I can't quite remember the words to These are a few of my favorite things and so I'm loudly singing, "Rainbows on lollipops, birds of a feather; gingersnaps, sauerkraut don't go together, when I fly kites I hold tight to the strings, these are a few of my favorite things!" Well...it fits with the music. Go ahead sing it out loud and see! Mark

'Favorite thing' is the theme for this weeks FSO... My favorite thing is Creativity!


If you live,
                       and I mean truly live; recognize,
                                                     and I mean truly recognize your path.
    Sometimes we have two paths.                                                             Sometimes we have none, because we do not see even one.
                                                    Mixed with recognition, true heart, a persons strength will be seen in all he or she does full heartily;

                   does that not mean that you are whole heartily a true heart?
                                                                                                                 We can be who we are truly meant to be, if we can be true to ourselves.

                                                                           Be who we are meant to be?
By following the path set before us?                                                                    Sure we have obstacles,

but those are only part of the path that gives us strength to keep going...they are just hurdles.

                                                                                             We have to learn to jump...jump higher.             Jumping those hurdles isn't so hard!?                             
                                                         I might even have three paths, you may follow...













I have been told by my teachers, mentors, and anyone else I might care to hear, that I contemplate...think more than necessary...can't stop, won't stop, part of who I am... My voice, poetry, vision for my work...oh, and I like puzzles, love them! I adore my new Prada glasses I just purchased and am using as my muse here...


I also love discovering artwork as these butterfly benches in a local garden, that unfortunately was meant to be a butterfly garden, but they have yet to plant any flowers... Gosh I just keep thinking of more stuff I love, and am I crazy for forgetting that I love food; it is a passion I share with many...

Go over and check out the other Friday Shoot Out Members, and their favorite things... We now have Mr Linky to help keep track of who posts, and mine is going up early because frankly I am swamped with work, and a trip into the city tomorrow...

PS. I will be starting an artistic group this coming week- Muse Monday. You will do a photograph along with a poem, a favorite quote, video, or just your feelings, link it (instructions Monday) through here and it will work like our FSO... Looking forward to moving on with my artistic endeavors...

Cool, well maybe I can do the artistic thingy too by quoting someone else's words.

Your rendition of the song is hilarious!

I hate the hurdles. I'm guilty of turning around and going back instead of trying to find a way to get over them.

Here's to creativity (lifts a kir made with my own crème de myrtilles)!

REDLAN said...

Wow Prada! And the butterfly garden is so cool.

kate said...

Oh, Prada is so dreamy :) The only Prada anything that I've ever had was the fake purse I bought on Canal Street in New York City (I call it my Fraud-a) - great post! Have a good weekend.

Doreen said...

Loved your song (yes, it does work with the tune!) and poem. You've just put a smile on my face. thanks.

Simply Heather said...

You creative gal, you! Not so different are we. I do like your version of the song...I was wondering if these lines were in it or not :)

Might just have to pop in now and then for your new Monday adventures.

Thank you for you encouraging comment today.

creativity has to be among one of my favorite things too. I loved your post and I love food too.

(I hope I didn't post this comment twice)

LOL - I don't know how you do it, ChefE - another project? I couldn't even manage a FFS post this week.I did, however, leave something for you at my blog. Come on over and pick it up, okay?

We have a butterfly park here in Auckland. But most children here have learn about Swan plants in school, and have experience the Monarch butterfly from eggs on.

Please let me know what topics I can research for you. I am now on holidays. From Dec 21 to Jan 27, I am on real holidays, I will go to Australia.
