"I am playing with myself,
I am playing with the world's soul,
I am the dialogue between myself and el espiritu del mundo.
I change myself, I change the world."

My Favorite Things

This post could be subtitled, "Giving in to peer pressure." O.K. there has been no pressure, but I see all the cool kids playing, and I feel a little left out.

What is all the fuss about?

Mrs. G.,over at Derfwad Manor , has invited all of her bloggy friends to post a list of their favorite things.

So here goes.

1. Folk music. I love all sorts of music, but my latest favorite, and the accompaniment to every evening meal at my house is The Weepies.

Aren't they sweet? I just wish they'd release a new album!





4. The Guadalupe River (Though Susan will ask if it is the Frio)

5. Coffee. O.K. , there should be something in the cup, but what can I say? I drank it.

6. Poetry. Especially

Emily Dickinson
7. Sweet people.

Grandmother and Momma

Morgan and Susan

I love your list and I went in and added you to the original narrative. It just wasn't the same without you. Have a great weekend.

I love how you used pictures for your list. Well done.

And thanks for stopping by my blog!

Folk music, coffee and sweet people - we're on the same page.
The picture of your Mama and your Grandma - beautiful. And I love that the dog is Alice....which reminds me I wish I had put up my dogs too. Maybe we will do Favorite Fridays again. I have thought of lots of other favorites since I posted. Like seat warmers. Love seat warmers.

What a great list! I too like the use of pictures instead of words. Nice touch!

Hey you look fun, too. :)

I loved how in your profile under favorite books you put, "Are you kidding me?" And I love Joni Mitchell. Do you know Robin & Linda Williams' music? They are regulars/folk singers on Prairie Home Companion.

I'm intrigued. I'll be back.

Hehe! I especially love the label "embarrassing revelations." Those are always the best, aren't they? Everyone else just finds them endearing, after all. :)

Because I could not stop for Death
He kindly stopped for me
The carriage held but just ourselves
and Immortality.

Dickinson FTW.

Such pretty puppies.

Hmmm, now if only I had some pictures of our puppy....I guess I need to go take some.
