My heart, in so many ways

So what do you get when you try to be a good little blogger and play along with a tag? You get tagged back - immediately! With something HARDER! Ack! Ok enough complaining from me :)

Mimi from Living in France has paid me back in spades for the 6th folder/6th photo tag I hit her with last week. This one is really tricky (for me, anyway) because I couldn't tell you what any song lyrics are, and poetry's not really my thing. So I'm going to do the best I can with this. This tag goes as follows:

"with as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, a poem, a song (or piece of music), a phrase (or quote), an item of clothing, a place, and (just for fun) a disney princess. if you want to join in, tag 6 more blogs."

I don't think I can be showing my heart any more than it is in this picture. Look at it shine.

Me and my baby. Doesn't matter which one.

My heart in a poem?
This is the English translation of a latin poem from Catullus somewhere around 60 B.C.
I found it in one of my very favorite books of all time, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.
Matt and I have part of the latin engraved on our wedding bands.

Come and let us live my Deare,
Let us love and never feare,
What the sowrest Fathers say:
Brightest Sol that dyes to day
Lives againe as blith to morrow,
But if we darke sons of sorrow
Set, then, how long a Night
Shuts the Eyes of our short light!
Then let amorous kisses dwell
On our lips, begin and tell
A Thousand, and a Hundred, score
an Hundred, and a Thousand more,
Till another Thousand smother
That, and that wipe off another.
Thus at last when we have numbered
Many a Thousand, many a Hundred;
Wee'l confound the reckoning quite,
And lose our selves in wild delight:
While our joyes so multiply,
As shall mocke the envious eye.

RICHARD CRASHAW (1612/3 - 1649)

A song?

I've always loved this one

My heart in a piece of clothing?

What else did you expect?

My heart in a place? I love the beach where we vacation with family each summer.

Outer Banks of NC

My heart in a Disney Princess is Jasmine - at least according the quiz on Facebook.
Maybe it's the flying carpet?

I'm not entirely sure what all this says about me, but there you go. To pass the fun along, I'm tagging the following 6 - I'd love to see what they come up with, if they feel like playing.

My next post is the big 100, so come back for my giveaway! It's pretty random, sort of like my blog ;)
