IMAGE SEARCH...

I saw this on YellowRose's blog, and thought it might be fun to do, and it was! I don't think you are supposed to write as much as I did, but...I couldn't help myself....

THE RULES:
1. Choose a search engine (I use Google, mostly) and click on "Images".
2. Choose 5 random blogfriends (Or not so random, your choice)
3. Think of a word that you feel best describes your blogfriend
4. Do an IMAGE SEARCH on that word.
5. Pick the image that best fits your pal and post it.

Okay. So I need to do a little explaining...I found it hard to pick 'one word', but I did, though I don't think one word fully describes anyone!

So, here are my coices today:

Yellowrose - "Angel"





I think YellowRose has an Angel's Heart and I loved this picture, because it encomposed the 'angel' and the 'heart'...So, it certainly gives you an aspect of this delightful blog pal.



Panthergirl - "Activist"

Panthergirl is an activist, among many other things...fighting for the rights and lives of a special breed of dogs, The Greyhound, and in particular Greyhound Rescue & Rehabilitation....plus giving generously of her time and money to other worthy causes....Brava Panthergirl....

Sonia - "Music"

Sonia loves the music of her country, (and so do I)...Brazil...and she generously shares this with some of her blogfriends. (like me...thank you dear Sonia....) Of course, like everyone else this one word doesn't fully tell you everything about Sonia in any way, shape or form...it's just one aspect of her many faceted and multi-dimensional persona....

Plumbkrazee - "Caring"


As with each of my other pals that I chose today, this one word--'caring'-- doesn't really cover everything there is about PK, but it's one of the things that stands out in my mind. She cares a great deal about many many things, and acts on that feeling all the time. If I was in some kind of trouble, I'd want her on my side, for sure.

And, last but not least by any means...

Chickie - "Funny"

Dear Chickie has, among many many other wonderful attributes, a great sense of humor! And, I think that she would think this is funny! I know I do, and even though it's a rather gross exageration (That's what makes it funny to me....). It speaks volumes, and so does Chickie.

This really is a very 'fun' thing to do. So if you do decide to do it, let me know and I'll link you!

And do go visit all these lovely pals if you don't already do so. I think you will enjoy each and every one of them for different reasons...And there is one thing they all have in common BTW, they are wonderful terrific women!



**On a sad note, the superlative actress, Maureen Stapleton died yesterday.
She was one of a handful of truly great theatre actresses of that Golden Age Of Broadway...Kim Stanley, Geraldine Page, Colleen Dewhurst, and Maureen Stapleton....the last of these four brilliant ladies and now, she too, is gone. I saw them all, I'm glad to say, and I even had the privilage of having Maureen S. at a small dinner party here on the hill, many years ago. She was a very very dear friend of another wonderful actress, Norma Crane, who was a very good friend of mine, too...(Norma died much too young at the age of 43, and all who knew her were devistated by her loss, Maureen, at the top of that list....)


Mauren Stapleton had a fantastic career having played Broadway, done Movies and Television and having won an Oscar, a Tony, and an Emmy...She worked with all the great writers, (Including starring in three Original Broadway Productions of Tennessee Williams plays. Also starring in Neil Simon's "Plaza Suite"--playing all three women's roles on Broadway, just to touch on a few). She was one of our greatest actresses and a very warm and witty woman, too. A standing ovation for this superb talent, whose voice is now stilled.You will be greatly missed**

That was an incredible picture of Chickie. I have a neighbor with the same kind of attribute and she really makes everyone turn their heads when she goes down our street.

I used to watched Maureen Stapleton's movies years ago and she will definitely be missed by the industry.

This is the hardest game I've ever seen. But as in most things, you exceed expectations.

I'm sure most of your male readers will think the last picture refers to them, no matter what you intended. ;)

When I read that Maureen Stapleton had passed away I thought about you immediately. I wonder why!

Good post Naomi. That one picture is pretty wild. Those girls couldn't stand up if their boobs were that big!

Sometimes I wonder if anyone is "getting" me, or if my blog is doing me justice.....then I hear from you, and I get a big smile on my face ~~~ thanks for "getting" me. And, yes, of course, I am ALWAYS in your corner...Plum knows how to take care of business! =) (Lovely tribute to Maureen, also)

Naomi, I agree with you about Maureen Stapleton and those other actresses you named as the greats! I wrote about Maureen on my blog today. I want to hear more about your friendship with Norma Crane. I thought she was so brilliant (and ultimately underappreciated) as Golda in "Fiddler on the Roof."

The great ones always pass away too soon. Why is it that we don't appreciate what we have until it is gone?

She was a wonderful talent. I'm sorry I never got to meet her. But knowing that you did, and that she touched you as she did, makes up for that.

What I take from this entry is simple: I will take an extra moment to appreciate the greatness of others. I will make this part of my everyday routine. I will not take good souls for granted.
