If I were....
I woke up this morning to big, fat snowflakes, the size of half-dollars. Alas, it's 34 degrees, so none of it stayed, but gosh, was it pretty. I sat with a cup of coffee and just watched it for a few minutes.
I got this meme (below) from somewhere, but didn’t make a note of it and can’t remember where. Or maybe I made it up? I can’t remember that, either. Anyway, it’s fun!
If I were a natural phenomenon, I would be…dusk, where it’s not quite dark, and the horizon stands out in a deep blue, sharp relief.
If I were a metal, I would be…silver.
If I were an animal, I would be…a bear.
If I were a color, I would be…green.
If I were a mythological being, I would be…a Moon goddess, full of cool, silvery power.
If I were a human activity, I would be…reading.
If I were a work of art, I would be… something in chiaroscuro. What he does with light is amazing. See the above painting, by Caravaggio.
If I were a weapon, I would be…words.
If I were an emotion, I would be…contentment.
If I were a character in a book, I would be…Morgaine, in The Mists of Avalon.
If I were an article of clothing, I would be…a warm, soft woolen shawl.
If I were a flower, I would be…a daffodil—secretive and seasonal, and always a good surprise.
Someone else's turn!
