For you are my companion, my lover in life and death, the protective spirit of this valley.
For when I died it was for you, with you, to be with you for eternity, your human lover rendered immortal.
Do you remember the view that day, the snow, the clouds?
Do you remember us on that day, my love, on the grey cliff, enlaced, kissing, falling, falling…?
I am smitten! Talented and beautiful Tawn, of totallytawn fame, has nominated this humble blogger for The Sunshine Award! I would like to thank you Tawn for the nomination, and for the lovely bloggers I will visit as a result. I wish to say that I am blushing at being part of such company, a great honour.
Following the tradition I have to give some answers to eight questions – blushing more – and then nominate ten bloggers for the award…
What is your favorite Christmas/festive movie?
O dear! Like you I am not a fan of Christmas, and I am very selective on the films I watch, besides being partly allergic to TV – giggles in his beard. I am not certain this is “festive”, strictly, but it is one of the great films of the last century: so here goes – Michael Cimino’s The Deer Hunter.
What is your favorite flower?
What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage?
What is your passion?
What is your favorite time of year?
Spring, the best season by far in old England where we live.
What is your favorite time of day?
Early morning, for me around 6 am at this time of year, a little later in the dark season, the hour of going for coffee!
What is your favorite physical activity?
Outside mountaineering holidays, cycling. I occasionally indulge in Tawn’s favourite one as well, when weather permits 😀
What is your favorite vacation?
The Italian Alps, and more precisely the province of Alto Adige/Bolzano (Bozen), and more precisely the Alta Badia valleys… This is for us a source of inspiration, of great exhaustion, and unlimited pleasures…
I think this covers the ten questions – as to the nominations, those are bloggers, writers, photographers I enjoy visiting time and again:
And, please, dear readers do visit Tawn’s marvellous blog and see the universe through her eyes!
