Favorite thing to photograph? Write? Or Cook?
Photography. I love taking pictures at night. It’s not the kind of photography at which I’m best, but I enjoy the challenge. Second favorite? Anything Autumn!
Writing. I just like to write and have as long as I have known how to form words on paper. I write about history, personal stuff, humor, technology, books and book reviews, movies, television and of course, dogs. Anything, everything.
I’ll write about pretty much anything that tickles my imagination. I think I could give you a solid 500 words about nothing.
Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing?
I still love swings. I used to go very high and recite Robert Louis Stevenson’s poem while I did it.
by Robert Louis Stevenson
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
Rivers and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside —
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown —
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!
What has surprised you about blogging?
The friends I have made. The sense of family. I didn’t expect that. I was just looking for someplace to show off some pictures, maybe post some of the funny little things I write. I didn’t expect to make so many friends is so many fascinating places.
List at least five favorite desserts.
