|Four loves, one blogfest!|
I was only five when it first released, but I was instantly hooked on the world of the Jedi. I even tried to write out all the dialogue once so my family and I could produce our own version of the movie. Even though I don't write sci-fi, Star Wars inspired me more than any other story to create new worlds and adventures as a writer. It's still one of my top favorite movies.
There was something about their music that struck a chord within me when I was in high school and college. Their lyrics seemed to fit what I was experiencing at the time and they were the first band I ever went to see in concert. While I still like their music, my playlist nowadays includes a huge variety of artists.
I was enchanted as if I'd been touched by Merlin's magic. I read and re-read this book so many times that the paperback cover came off. The book still sits on my shelf waiting for me to pick it up once again. Not only was the story itself magical but Howard Pyle's illustrations at the beginning of every chapter were bewitching, drawing me further into the ancient realm of knights and chivalry.
My first and only true love. I don't know how I got so lucky to find him. He's an inspiration to me in his quest for learning and living life. He supports me in all my endeavors and has opened my eyes to new possibilities. It's been a fun 18 years!! :) Can't wait to see what the next 20 years will bring.
Have a great Monday and don't forget to go check out all the other First Loves.
