Several of you - including Scarlet, who gave me these words for my meme, as well as Joey, Grannie Annie and Fireblossom, among others (and if I forgot you, don't be mad, it's tired me here) - have posted about this meme. Someone gives you five words and you muse about them...or something like that.
Here are my five:
Words are my biggest aphrodisiac. That and a British accent (before I met Mr. RK, anyway.)
Scents have always been linked to memories for me. No matter how long it has been since I have seen or thought of someone, if I smell a lotion, cologne, perfume, or other scent that I have associated with them, memories will come back.
The people who have been the biggest inspiration in my life, I just realized, have all been social activists of one kind or another: social workers, nonprofit workers, pastors.
Beauty really is on the inside. People with ugly personalities become really ugly to me.
Speaking of beauty, I finished a friend's manuscript last night, and a line from the last page really grabbed me and made me read it again:
Life is not perfect, but there are perfect moments, complete in themselves, requiring nothing more, for more would be too much, and less would be too little.
I will fight like a mama bear if I think someone I love is being treated unfairly, but I am a peaceful person at heart (this means "peace" in Spanish.) I fantasize about world peace. I wish we could somehow eliminate greed, because I think we'd eliminate about 99% of the world's problems that way.
