The adventurous and interesting Tami Clayton invited me to play a game of letters (my favorite kind). The rules: reveal 10 of your favorite things that begin with a certain letter of the alphabet.
My letter (in case the post title didn’t give it away): S!
Stories: Escape into magical worlds. Power to change the real world. What I want to spend my life writing and reading.
Spices: Cooking has never been so interesting!
Sliding ladders: Ohhh, I want one so much!! Or I could just move into a library that has them.
Shakespeare: The love of my literary life (minus the earring). The genius bard of the Western world. Themes as relevant today as they were in the 16th century. Need I say more?
Sunshine: Just one of the many great reasons to be living in California again!
Scotland: The windswept land of bagpipes and legends, monks and poets, caber tossing and lovely accents–my second-favorite place in the world (after home, of course).
Springtime: My favorite season of the year!
Singing: I like to shatter windows with the high notes. (Actually, I just like imitating Hayley Westenra in the shower, on my church praise team, and when I have the house to myself.)
Sincerity: One of the characteristics I value most in friends (and in literary characters).
Socks: These are not my feet. But I kind of wish they were. My favorite Tinker Bell pair got a hole in them, but I do have a pretty awesome pair of knee-high blue-and-green argyles.
What are your favorite S-things? If you have a blog and want to play the letter game, leave me a comment and I’ll send you a starting letter via Facebook or Twitter!
