A Meme: Six Word Memoir

"Romance charms Routine . . . with a dance."

SHEILA at Gim'Me Memories tagged me with this MEME! So, I chose the above painting, En Vendanges by Daniel Ridgeway Knight (1839-1924), Rehs Galleries. Although using an image was optional—and most of the Meme's that I veiwed used personal photos—I was entranced by this spontaneous gesture of love. Look to the right of this couple to see the expression of delight and suprise on the older woman's face. In my mind, picking grapes couldn't get any better!

Now, I get to SURPRISE 5 more unsuspecting souls...

Here are the MEME rules:
  • Write your own six word memoir.
  • Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
  • Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible, so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
  • Tag five more blogs with links.
  • Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

    Haha if this really happened to you...I wanna hear more about it! I know you must live near a vinyard...
    Have you seen my favorite movie A Walk In The Clouds?

  6. KJ,
    Thanks for tagging me - a first for me! Hmmm....
    I will have to think about this!!!
    Loved your painting!!!

  7. Miss Shabby... It’s not exactly my memoir, but my hubby did propose to me on a gondola in the Alamitos Bay of Long Beach—with Pavarotti music permeating the starry night. We ate a picnic basket dinner and he knelt on a tapestry carpet.

    The Napa vineyards in California are many hours North of me. I have been in the surrounding areas, but never to the vineyards. One day soon...

    We used to have quite a few local vineyards in the San Bernardino area of California; they were seated at the foothills of our local mountains. There are a few that are still operative, but the locale is nothing like the beautiful landscape of Northern California. So many suburbs and commercial areas have gobbled up farm land in Southern California.

    It you link back through Sheila on this Meme, you will see family photos, etc. I guess I just became smitten with the romantic notion of this painting. Yes, I am a romantic soul...

    You have a fabulous day my dear Miss Shabby!

    Sheila... Thanks for the compliment. I know that I am not always orthodox in my interpretation of something, but this was fun!


  8. Now, I KNOW I left a comment on this post before. I suppose it is lost in cyberspace. Okay, I'll try to duplicate it:

    Ooh, girl, your six word meme rocks. It intimidates me. But, I accept the challenge and will do this meme. You go, girl.


  9. I love this - I think it's my favorite one so far! That painting says it all.


  10. Thanks KJ, I will give this some thought and blog about!


  11. Hi KJ, I posted my memoir this morning! This was fun!



Thanks for stopping by!
