I think I want to start a meme. Summer is a time when I feel an especial joie de vivre, so this meme is in honor of celebrating and loving life.
If you could pick one photo that epitomizes joie de vivre, or quote one short piece of prose or poetry, or write one, what would it be?
Don't think about it long and hard, just do the first thing that comes to mind. I've got two, and I'm gonna post them both because I'm making the rules. The photo's above, the poem is below.
In the meantime, I tag Andrea, Melodee, the Cryders, the Sutherlands, Anne, Liz, Mel, Hannah, TBR, T.L., Beth, Denise and Laura. If you send me a link, I'd love to post your contributions on BCG. OR, if you don't have a blog (you know who you are) and you still want to play, send me your contribution and I'll post it for you here. Please play with me!!!
And now, without further ado, my poem (borrowed from ee cummings)
Great meme, Molly! I posted a picture on TRP...
give me a week and a half. i'll have something for you!
Hmmm, I would never have pegged you as an ee cummings fan.
Thanks, Melodee and Mel!
Master Aegidius: yup, I AM an ee cummings fan, even though his poems are sometimes a bit cryptic. This is my favorite poem by him, followed closely by "Maggie and Milly and Molly and May / went down to the beach to play one day..."
I finally got Blogger to upload my photo, which you can see over at buzzfish.blogspot.com. Thanks for a great meme!
Hi, um...I FINALLY did your meme. Late, late, late...but better than never. Right?
