Self Portrait Challenge - Introduce Yourself
boho, canon digital rebel xt
This month's topic over at Self Portrait Challenge is "Introduce Yourself".
When I first read this I sort of laughed to myself. Goodness...I have spilled so much of my inner the last five months on my blog that introducing myself feels like taking a few steps back in a growing relationship.
I suppose I would liken it to hanging out with my tribe all day and then when we are ready to part I stick out my hand and say..."Hi, my name is Denise."
Perhaps the true reason I find this topic uncomfortable is because here on my blog it has become second nature to get right down into the deepest foundation of my soul and it never occurs to me to share trivial tid bits of my life. Like what my favorite color is or what cuisine teases my palette.
But those aren't really trivial, are they? All those little tid bits make up the big lovely bit of who we are.
Upon more reflection, I realized that on those days when I feel too far into the depths of my head, it feels so good to shut my brain off and read "tags" or "meme's" listing light and airy information about the people I find so intriguing in this bloggie Universe.
So I am going to reserve all the Tuesdays in this month of May for a bit of easy breezy Boho sharing. Nothing too deep. Perhaps a few surprises.
So, here are just a few bits about myself that you may not have guessed by what you have learned about me thus far:
I don't have a favorite color right now. I choose my colors based on my mood and my mood changes quite frequently. My favorite color when I was younger was white. I thought of it like a prism in that white held all the colors of the rainbow into one. I even wrote a poem about it called "White", of course.
I have a difficult time sharing popcorn out of the same bag with my husband at the movies. His hand is so big that I feel like it swallows up everything left for me. So we usually get separate small bags and laugh about it every time. We are wondering if this stems from something out of my childhood. We think it might be since I had a special diet growing up, I was used to eating my own foods apart from others and it is hard for me to share. Did I just get too deep there???
Oops, my apologies...okay, one more easy breezy tid bit.
When I was a freshmen in bible college, my lovely roommate and dear friend Pattie and I snuck out passed curfew and found a route around the guard through the woods. Even though all we did was meander in and out of Redwood trees in the dark with some boys (ummm...the Dean's son?), it still felt cool that we were supposed to be in bed. That night we saved a frog from despair and brought it into the dorms not realizing that its ribbit sounds would wake everyone else up. Try to explain that one to your Dorm mother. Oooohhhh...crazy bible college stories!!!
More fun Boho bits next Tuesday.
