ONE THING YOU WANT TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE

Antarctica


this is my favorite townhouse in the city. it was for sale a few weeks ago, but some lucky person or family will move into this lovely yellow New Orleans style beauty.

i enjoy spending time going inside myself. our world is always in such a hurry, and it's so easy to feel this pressure.

i have another day off. no agenda yet. maybe after my tea.

Well then! How fun is this! I'm learning some things. And hey, here's some great material for the Pink Grapefruit poem that I'm still working on for Sapphos tomorrow (don't know if I'll get the revision done in time for this week).

You know I was teasing you about posting every day. It's just that I gobble it up. This should only be fun and when you have something to say!

Ginnie said...

So Ruth is just eating you up, LA, as are the rest of us, of course. This is so fun.

Memes like this always bring out stuff I never knew, which is why they're so great to read. Glad you did this one. :)

mammy!
i know you were teasing me! it makes me happy to post for you every day. i think i will try. even if it's just a photo.
for you. because i love you.

lesleyanne said...

thank you aunt bootsie, yes i enjoy those very much. you always find out something about someone you know very well, something that may be a bit awkward to ask. like..'hey how are you! so what are you wearing right now?'

mystic rose! yes, you inspired me. i read yours and found out some great things about you as well! i admit, some very good answers. especially with your choices. i love that your reactions are a choice. isn't it the truth.
you should definitely try kayaking and rock climbing! i admit i don't have the money to climb right now, and soon i will have my kayak in the city!

kayak...:) sounds fun! how do u take it around? cabs?
once it gets warmer, you will have so much fun!! theres lots of places around here, harryman park for instance the lakes there are awesome!

It will take a lot of time for me to write this Lesley, things keep changing, music for instance, right now I have Indian music fever, after reading your your what do you call this ? Mystic rose what is this ? Tag ? I find that I am not a steady person, I am pretty chaotic, you are so level headed Lesley, I will write some thing today and I will write something else tomorrow. From past few days I have been reading PD Wodehouse, I just want to laugh, I have read the same so many times before, Wooster and Jeeves.
There was a dramatic change in my attitude toards life. I'll write about it. My life is never sad or something. It has always been happy
Right now I am in a big hurry to write about cotton and silk cottage weaving for you Lesley in my next few posts and I keep postponing the tags.
