A top-rated meme, very well done. I like the artistic work you did. I also like Catherine Deneuve, although her movies don't get shown on British tv.
Michele sent me here.
I loved that you started with a photo of Baby.
'ooh', I thought 'Baby!'
I loved this meme, and thought ending on 'abundance' was a fabulous idea.
I may have to do this one.... :-))
Oh, just beautifully done! loved reading everything and seeing your fab pics as well!! My middle name only has 3 letters...
you never cease to amaze me Naomi! Great "answers" and photo's!
and of course, Sweetie is the handsomest kitty!
Very well done, Naomi. Thanks for the mention and the link. I appreciate it more than you know. I will rent Indochine as soon as this mess here is over.
That's a great Meme... Yet again, we get to know you a little better! Your art work is amazing. Having studied Ceramic Design at uni for 3 years I know what you mean when you write that you look at your work and think, wow, did I really do that??
Naomi! What a GREAT post! I LOVE it when you do meme's! You should do them more often - we learn so much about you. (not that we don't learn a LOT about you from all your posts - but the meme's seem to bring out weird stuff that would never come out otherwise!) I will do this one - but not for a few days. My blog palette is FULL at the moment! ;)
I don't mind doing this one...it was so nice to read all those things about you. And of course I always enjoy the pictures you put up. I have to think on mine...yours was so well put together. And that Sweetie...oh he is beautiful. I had a big smile when his picture showed up. He really is one of the prettiest cats I have ever seen. You are right to be proud of him.
Michele returned me here to reread this super meme.
Fascinating post, facts and colorful photos! BTW I answered your comment question about my dog at my place in my current post before I found this piece. Especially, enjoy reading about your creative process and your sharing some of the results.
Beautifully done, Naomi !
You have uch incredible talent/a gift at putting words and pictures together to create feelings and stirring images, "Clarissa' !
Baby and Sweetie - cats are such loves ! The best companions EVER, I think !
And abundance, yes, you DO have it, and you give of it so generously back !
Hugs, and a happy healthy weekend to you !
I know automatic writing. I loved this meme. I did it a few posts back
p.s. Naomi, I will do the meme next Friday !
I will have Courtney add Indochine to her Netflix queue so we can watch it. It sounds wonderful!
Sweetie is a super gorgeous cat!!!!
What about C for chocolate???!!
I saw this meme at Judy's, and she tagged me too.
I will do this sometime after I finish my vacation series. I have a few other meme tags to do too.
I like the memes that reveal a bit about a person.
This is a goodie!!
Happy Weekend to YOU!
Another great meme from you.
You do know that it is our anniversary today right ?
I met Sweetie today a year ago, and you of course Aunty Em.
Happy meetiversary lol.
Oh, a great meme Naomi! I'll do it but I must think first. Lord knows that will put stress on my brain!! LOL!! They say it's good to keep the brain active, so I'll look at it that way! I don't have a middle name....hmmm.....
I would love to see all the bowls Sweetie has!! Not embarrassing to me at all. I know how close we can get to our cats. Sweetie is beautiful..absolutely beautiful. He should be gracing the cover of Cat Fancy!
Hope you are having a great weekend! Hugs to you!!
Michele sent me back fancy that lol.
In regards to sweeties bowls you should post a pic, I thought it was the funniest thing I had heard all day when you were talking about how fussy he was and you swore.
It boggles my mind how deep your talent extends in so many media. You inspire anyone who reads you to seriously raise the level of their game.
This meme was a treasure chest of all things Naomi. I'm going to need to read it again to really appreciate just how complex and gifted you are.
You up for a chat this week?
Hi dear Naomi! Love to read your Meme! The photos and images are very attractive, too!
Thanks for think on me for that Meme! So sweet of you!
Have a nice Sunday!
Excellent, Artful, Inspiring, Captivating.
good good stuff
Loved this, Naomi. :)
I'll definitely take the tag and do it. Your creativity and earnestness inspires me. I don't have a middle name, but like you, I can make one up.
Loved the images/paintings. Not only do I know what automatic writing is, but I have always believed that art and creative expression comes from a very similar space.
Enjoyed this post, and your affirmation image at the end. From over the hill here, it appears that you have all the things on that card. And I wish you more. Thanks for the positive boost.
What a lovely meme and a great read Naomi - thanks for sharing your thoughts and this beautiful pictures!
Thanks also for tagging me - an honor - I'll see what I can do and if so keep you posted.
Wishing you a lovely Sunday and a great week ahead:-)
I am glad that you finished on abundance as this is exactly what this emem held: An abundance of information about you that was at once engaging, warm, interesting and so rich!
The photo's of Baby and Sweetie are wonderful. Cats are such dear companions and I really do not understand people who presume to tell me that they are not when they invariably don't own a cat!
I also know exactly what you mean about the creative process. Sometimes I look back at something I have done and I feel exactly the same way. It's like another person has done it even though it is you.
I might have to borrow this meme even though I wasn'ttagged. I might just tag myself! :)
Hi Naomi! If you have the time, take a look on my update post to see the photos of the Google Earth showing my place.
Ditto, ditto, and DITTO on Reality TV. I absolutely hate it! All of it.
Shhhh....don't tell MY three cats, but I have to agree, Sweetie is simply stunning. Such a beautiful cat!
And thanks for the mention of that movie. Going to Netflix to add it to my list.
What a lovely meme! I see you are a very soulful person. Your exhibition poster is beautiful...reminds me a bit of Georgia O'Keefe. I wish I had some ability in the art arena, I do love colors and shapes so. So glad Michele sent me.
I was totally blown-away by Sweetie's blue eyes :)
What a lovely post and beside movies, is Indochine found in book? I would love to read this book ya!
Have a wonderful day Naomi just as your post have given me a bright sunny day :D
Hmm where do I start
I came to say thanks for stopping by my blog and well WOW
I love your template and I liked your MEME so much I did it too :D
in Novy news
The art Music and Cats sounds like we have alot in common
My meme is up...not at all as nice and artistic as yours!
Another fabulous post! You are truly amazing.
I can't help but look at Sweetie and think, "That is one handsome fellow!"
I recognize so much about you in this post. Art, music and flowers are the first things that come to mind when I think of you. Oh and Sweetie is absolutely gorgeous, perfect coloring with the hair and eyes. I will also be adding Indochine to my "to view" list. On my way over to Netflix now to see if they have it.
Naomi – since my connection is still slow, I am answering right here on your blog. Lot’s to read – so excuse me. But it’s honest. And in honour to you and your very interesting and giving blog.
Cats: I’ve had Cats for about 50 years. And I still admire their way of manipulate homo sapiens – and also be very useful, not only as pets but as food guards and cleaners. The oldest one we had, Per the Castrate, well, he went away in the age of about 27.
Lyrics: Well, I did write some for comedy shows in College – in Norwegian. That was fun. At that time.
Art: That’s way back – in primary school. A tree, during Winter, No leafs. But the Sun behind. That was #1 in the contest.
Reality: Four kids. With first wife. She is now “sister”. Silver wedding with Anna in December.
Indochine: The movie l’Indochine has given me a forever strong impression – so strong after watching the movie with C D (she is beautiful - and I think this was her best role ever), I did refuse to go for free to the Musical Miss Saigon, in London;D - What happened there was not at all entertainment – it was a tragedy. (in fact I went to Paris to visit some friends - and went back to London the very next day
This movie is one that really has awakened me – like the Dutch movie Max Havelaar. (Fair Trade) – RESPECT - I then learned.
Sweetie: I must admit, your sweetie is absolutely fantastic. Look at those eyes. So wise. So comfortable. So in trust. Mieew. My sweetie? So many. But I think it ends up with Anna and the kids and the cats….
SENECIO: I have not seen those flowers around here, but yours are beautiful.
Abundance: “My thoughts . . . are from the abundance of my heart” (Thomas De Quincey).
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with all these memorable photos.
I loved this meme! I am going to check out that movie....I love coming here and learning so many fun things about you. I will do this one tomorrow sometime, sorry it's taken me so long to get with the program. =) I just caught up with Judy....oh my! I can't believe I missed so much the few days i've been missing......i hate that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fantastic post! hmmm.... :) You have wonderful hand to write. So many emotions! And you love cats! Certainly I'll back for more!
