Happy Friday! Happy Weekend!
I am excited it is the weekend, and even better it will be snowing here in Milwaukee, perhaps a last little bit of winter before the end of the season. In addition, I am going on a road trip, and I love an adventure. I love to see the sights, try out the junk food in whatever area I am traveling, make up stories to entertain whoever is with me, and just enjoy the company of my travel companions.
As it is Friday, I thought it might be fun to play a game, Scrabble to be exact. Jeanne fromCollage of Life had a great post today called “Words for Life”… and she suggest sitting down and writing, no punctuation, no capitals, nothing that will take your mind off of the game. Basically, you sit and compile a list of words that describe your life, your interests, your favorite things, whatever you want. Jeanne suggests answering the following question: “If life were a game of scrabble my words would be?”
I loved this exercise, and I have to tell you that Jeanne is absolutely correct, once you start your list the words just keep coming. I sat for twenty minutes and these are the words that came to me, obviously not an all encompassing list but a good start for now.
These are the words that make up the “fabric” of me and my life:
my pup munchen
time with my mother
spending time with my family and friends
niece’s and nephew
spending time alone
walking along the beach
listening to the sound of the ocean
english home magazines
pizza, grilled cheese sandwiches, and macaroni and cheese
classical music, violin concertos, string quartets
Gregorian chants, i turn them up loud and relax to them
early music, groups such as anonymous 4, lion heart
metallica, yes the heavy metal group
Pavarotti, Bochelli, Groban
Dead Can Dance, Lorrena McKennitt
Broadway plays, Into the Woods, Chicago, Mary Poppins
ANYWHERE in scotland
the cottswolds, the lake district
still life paintings

cashmere scarfs and throws
Issey Miyake Perfume
Hermes Birkin Bag…a girl can dream

By the way, your list is a work in progress. Start and stop and go back when you can or when you think of something you want to write down. It is very cathartic. I hope you try it and link back to Jeanne at Collage of Life . I would love to know your words for life so if you do write your list I would love to read it. Thank you Jeanne for a wonderful exercise in self!
Have a great weekend, be safe wherever you are, strange weather happening all over the world.
