Oh, and the rule is you are to list 10 things you love that start with a certain letter. If you want to play along, let me know in the comments and I will give you a letter!
I love that I can get free almost accurate information about almost anything!
I love to walk, hike, and r...walk. Running is okay when I've got motivation and am in training, but I truly would rather enjoy a calm pace so I can enjoy what's around me. Like looking at my husband walk. *giggle
Where the Streets Have No Name:
I love U2's music. I have to admit I'm not a fanatic, nor do I own all their music. But I have never heard anything by them I didn't like! (don't you love this old-school poster?)
Love it. Love to drink it (prefer it over anything, really), love to swim in it (snorkeling is preferred), love to watch it (waves, baby, waves!), love to hear it, and love to smell it (rain!).
Okay, the movie wasn't that awesome for me --too much "save the Earth or we'll all end up in outer space for 700 years! Do it NOW!" And that bugged me. However, I like being Green. Not fanatic-green. Just doin'-my-duty Green. I recycle, I turn off lights, I buy organic, I buy local (try to), and I love the Earth. I think the last one is it. I don't do any of the above because it's "cool" or because some famous person told me I should or because it's all political now. I do it because I love nature. It's kind of my favorite thing, really. Green's my favorite color, too, btw, but it doesn't start with "W". See why I picked Wall-E?
I love learning from people. Smarter people --people who KNOW. Like prophets, seers, and revelators. Also, I enjoy learning from my parents, teachers, old ladies in my ward, blogger friends, Wikipedia (see?), the scriptures, my children, authors who write awesome books, and many, many other people and things.
I love to wish upon a star...but more importantly, I try to be optimistic. That doesn't mean I'm not good at complaining (holy cow do I complain!), but I always end my rants with hope and looking at the positive side. Optimism and hope are things I love, and I'm always reminding myself to remember it. Life without wishes (and watching them come true?) is depressing. I'm depressed enough without adding to it...
Windows are awesome. I especially like old ones (this one above was taken at the Tower of London in January by yours truly). There's just something about windows that make me happy. I love looking out our kitchen window above the sink at our old, old tree-which-has-a-name-I-don't-know. The seasons change this tree dramatically, and I love to watch the changes. I also love a house with open curtains and lots of sunshine. And then, I could wax philosophical on ya' and talk about windows to our souls, etc. and so forth, but I won't right now...
So, there you have it. Let me know if you want to play!
