I’m a sucker for collecting random phrases and quotations that speak to me in the particulars of some moment. Removed completely from the context that birthed them, done in up their Sunday best of imagery or fancy fonts, meme-ified and Pinterest-worthy — I love this nonsense!
Which is why I am participating for the first time ever [and probably the last!] in one of those blogger’s challenge-type things currently making the rounds. Thanks and curses alike to Lin at Breathing Space for tempting me with this particular siren’s song.
I have already informed Lin that I will be honoring the spirit and not the letter of the challenge by posting the guidelines. . . and then promptly breaking them. Since she did too, I’m feeling quite remorse-free.
[Oh! Here! should you be at all interested in seeing more of my FOOD WORDS collection.]
Guidelines, as written:
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post a quote each day for 3 days.
- Each day nominate 3 new bloggers to take part.
Yeaaaaahhh. See, I don’t do the “tag — you’re it!” chainletter-esque blogging. Ever.
I do have some lovely blogging friends whose sites I’m happy to encourage folks to visit, so I’m going to do three recommendations instead of nominations.
- Deb, at I am, therefore I write
- Danielle, at Is Happiness Spoon Fed?
- Claudia McGill, at Claudia McGill Writes Poetry, Did You Know That?
[Bonus recommendation: if you haven’t yet visited the internet home of The Claudia McGill Museum of Things Claudia McGill Picks Up From the Street When She Is Just Going Along Being Claudia McGill and Doing Claudia McGill Things, you really are missing out. The saga of the blue comb alone! I’ve gone all goose-pimply just thinking about it…]
If any of these three folks decides to participate in any way — anything from posting quotes on their own blogs/Facebook feeds, to putting some favorite words in a comment here, to just having a warm happy feeling a few weeks from now when they read this post and realize I was thinking of them — well, that sounds pretty lovely too!
