Things I Love

                                     Medieval buildings reflected in the canal. Gant, Belgium.                                     
                                     "Haunted" houses. Bruges, Belgium.
                                     Peaceful swans love to glide...
                                     Today is no special day; I have no news to tell you, or any
                                      problems to discuss with you. But I'd like to share these thoughts
                                      with you dear readers.
                                     There are four things I'm most passionate about that I could not
                                      live without.
                                      I absolutely love them like a fat kid loves cake!
                                      I adore:
                                      My favourite music.
                                      Watching movies.
                                      Long-distance walks.

                                      What are the four things you love?

                                     Now if you feel like your ears have been lacking wonderful music
                                     and lyrics,check this clip out; "She's always a woman to me"
                                     by Billy Joel.
                                     Perfect music and symbolic lyrics.
                                     (Sorry male blog friends, no offence intended!).

                                     I so love this song. I've got it stuck in my head actually. xx

You beat me to it, I also love this song and mention it in a post yet to be published. Used in an insurance company advert here in England, the lyrics are beautiful.

I love the photo of those houses, so quaint.

Brisbane Baker said...

Amazing photos. I do l love to take pictures also. They aren't that great, but I love taking snaps of random things :)

Good morning Betty..
Beautiful photographs and love your music also.
The houses in second photograph really look like haunted.
Wondering how it would be at night.
Have a great day.

Betty, May I love the things you love, because I DO. I think we (you and I) may be what I call artsy. We see art (art-see) in everything. I love music, photography, art and travelling. And I love my bloggy friends!

Gorgeous pictures!

Today, I love air conditioning. I live in Florida and our air conditioner died a slow death over the last couple of weeks. Today, as we speak, they are installing my new air conditioner.

Call me superficial, but I don't like to sweat. ;0)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Those are so peaceful, beautiful and serene. I needed to see those today.

Steve Julian said...

Is the word serene? Nice pictures and there are good days to post the pictures. Pictures and music can speak for us.
I take lots of trips by listening with music. Helps me.Peace

Those pictures are beautiful! I used to listen to that song often. I hardly listen to music these days. That's sad, isn't it?
