Today I was reading Living the Creative Life: Ideas and Inspiration from Working Artists and one of the exercises suggested making a list of all the things you loved as a child. Here's my list:
Barbies, books, paper, crayons, paint, cookies, cakes, cats, rings, fingernails, elbows, tulips, swings, shoes, quilts, the beach, the woods, rain, swimming, my bike, gum, candy of all sorts, Coke, hair, lipstick, little chests of drawers, flannel, coffee smells, troll dolls, gnomes, tiny furniture, doll houses, Snoopy, Archie comic books, trees, tree houses, the golf course, pie, apples, cheerleaders, pom poms, stationery, letters, perfume, sewing, embroidery, pickles, foam pillows, walks, races, plays and acting, dancing lessons, Camp Fire Girls, writing in journals, butterflies, cows, fields of crops, strawberries, taking pictures, doodling, clean smells, saddles shoes, Van Gogh and Grandma Moses, dolls, fabric, wall paper, fresh sheets on my bed, tidy cupboards, and sack lunches eaten in the woods. The thinking is that you like all the same things as an adult. I do. You should make a list of all the things YOU loved as a child and share it with me. Do you want to?
Tomorrow = NOVEMBER!
Bye bye October! You were fun and very lovely! See ya next year!
Oh, I love you, my blog readers. You are so quick to give of yourselves. I appreciated your comments on my last post. You're so smart, so wise, so real. I wish you soft love and tingles in your mind, the kind that make you feel bright and cheerful. (BIG HUG!)
