10 Things I Can't Live Without

10 Things I Can't Live Without

1. Colour in my life - I often dream in colour, and they say that we don't...


2. Paris - Sights, sounds, smells, tastes, views, being In Seine (groannn!)... you get it


3. Magic - Spells, incantations, chanting, hoping, wishing, do-gooding... all that and wishing on stars! Oh, and luck... "If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all...!"

4. Laughter in my life......


5. Greenery and Scenery - I cannot exist in a grey world far from greenery, even if it is just the verdant leaves of a plant...


6. I cannot live without my wild heart... Photobucket


7. Strong, funny, witty, crazy, beautiful women...


8. Music


9. Words and Language


10. And, last but by no means least...

books Pictures, Images and Photos

Hello Fhina,

I'm sure that things like laughter, colour, music, scenery and books would feature largely for a lot of people. Paris is also good and luck and magic. We all need a little magic!

My son has recently become enamored by all things magic-related. Sometimes it takes a child to open us up to things we normally wouldn't give a second thought to. That and some lame card tricks :D but he's working on it!

Where do you find all those photos of mystical looking women? I have a bit of a thing for the artwork on tarot cards, the colours and symbols are sooooo - you know what I mean?

Is that Alnmouth at the top? I overheard a visitor telling someone they had just seen Balamory!

Lots of interesting thoughts amongst your ten things - although I though there were more like a hundred of them.

Derrick - I think many of our lists would be alike - I think mine is pretty close to Scriptor Senex's for example - He had pen and paper, and I would have had that too - Keeping it to 10 (obv. excluding family, friends, pets and home, of course) is pretty hard!

Carma - Too true - A little good magic and sleight of hand are wonderful things!

Tismee2 - Colour pic is of Alnmouth, indeed. I mainly source pics from Photobucket - I agree re mystical imagery and art - Some of it is very beautiful, so too are older paintings, which I wish I could bring in here to add colour, but those are pretty rare on Photobucket!

p.s. I'm trying to do short - Is it working?!

I thought l would do the same sometime soon, but it may be boring for you to see...as the only one l think l would change is magic...!!

Your photo collage is very beautiful . . . I liked the way you used pictures to tell (part) of your story. And your list? All wonderful things.

Liked the Alnmouth photo a lot. At first I thought it was Lord Armstrong's place...how wrong can I be! (I will link to you when I get my act together. Hope that is OK? Cheers.H.)

Books are an absolute must as well. 100%.

Diane said...

I love your list... love it. I may do this one instead of the 6 things (I like 10 better :).

PS... I believe in magic, too. I did a post once called, "I Do Believe in Fairies! I Do! I Do!" I'll find the link for you... you'll like it :)

Diane said...

I gave you an award tonight... come get it :)

Greenery, Scenery and Magic are definitely things I couldn't live without.

FFF - How could you ever, ever, ever be boring - Get a list done, girl, I can't wait to read it! x

Drunken Bee - Welcome in, I sense another kindred spirit - Your blog is lovely, and I heart your monicker!

Diane - You are a generous and enlightened soul, thank you! Please check out Diane's Addled Ramblings, friends, if you have not already. And I'm sitting here in tears this morning, particularly after reading some of Diane's beautiful, recommended reads - If you only go read one thing, please see Maithri's poem today, pretty please? x

CJ - Living wehre we do, it's hardly surprising that I am a lover of the Green Man and magic, eh? x

Protege said...

Beautiful, I can related to all of the above.
Thank you for stopping by my place and leaving such a heartfelt comment.;)

So much of your list would be on mine. It's hard to come up with a set number of course - but I think you did an excellent job.

So few people realize how prominently magic figures in their lives. Some find it in religion (faith and miracles) and some in the power of positive thinking (self empowerment). But I truly believe that whether you believe in fairies, God, the power of the human spirit or all of the above - it all boils down to one kind of "magic" or another. There are unlimited sources of wonder in life - and magic can be found in the ones that just can't be explained in words.

Thank you for sharing your top ten list - and the beautiful photos! What a lovely "stop and rest" point in my day. :)

High Desert Diva said...

Your list is very similar to what mine would be!
