We had a great time on the Fantasy Island and if you missed my list of favorite albums, you can find it on my post from Monday. The entire week I posted about music and I plan to continue through the upcoming week.
This coming Monday I will be posting my list of NINE NICE JAZZ FAVORITES, which are jazz albums that I particularly like. If you'd like to join us you can sign up on the Linky list at the top of my page. I don't expect a lot of participation on this one because I think I lot of you don't think you like jazz. Please check any of the lists on Monday and see if maybe you can find something to suit your tastes. Jazz covers a broad gamut of styles and you may be surprised at what is offered up under the label of jazz.
At the bottom of my page you will continue to find the Linky listings of A to Z participants and FANTASY ISLAND FAVORITE lists. These lists will stay for another week if you'd like to continue to go through any you missed.
In the upcomng week, after the JAZZ FAVORITES on Monday, I will be talking about some more individual albums and artists. On Thursday I will have another music related debate topic. So be ready-- this blog is alive with the sound of music.
I been TAGGED!!
Gregg from GOSPEL DRIVEN DISCIPLES tagged me for this "what if" game:
IF I WERE A…
MONTH -- April because my showers bring the May flowers. I enjoy the coming of Spring when it's starting to get warmer, but not too hot. If I were April I would cancel income tax day.
DAY-- Monday because I would want to get everyone motivated to start a new week of getting things done and to show everyone that Monday is not all that bad.
TIME OF DAY -- 8:30 in the morning when I still feel fresh. I've just finished breakfast and ready to start my day. It's a time for optimism and a time to look forward to the day ahead.
SEASON--Springtime for the reasons listed under April
PLANET -- Earth of course because it represents home and life.
DIRECTION--Southeast is a nice part of the United States that I consider as my real home, but I can feel at home just about anywhere.
TREE-- A Christmas tree because it's festive and brings such happiness to so many people.
ANIMAL--An eagle since they can soar above everything and look down upon the world.
MUSICAL INSTRUMENT-- A finely crafted violin because I play the violin.
FRUIT -- Avocado because guacamole is good. And yes avocado is a fruit because it has a pit.
FOOD--A chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and why would I need any reason for that?
COLOUR-- Green like lush expanses of vegetation because it represents so much life.
BOOK--The Bible because it is really the only book any one needs if they were only allowed one book.
SONG --Je Crois Entendre Encore because it's one of my wife's favorite songs and she would want to sing me.
MOVIE-- It's a Wonderful Life because it's a movie filled with such a range of emotions, but ends in a way that makes us all happy.
FLOWER-- A tall sunflower because it's big bright and yellow and always faces toward the sun.
FACIAL EXPRESSION-- A pucker because I like to give kisses.
I will pass this on and tag:
