Do you recognize the song lyric? Probably not, unless you are a dork like me. It is a Spandau Ballet song that has been running through my head today...judge me if you must :-) It is because I am thinking about this week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word, COMMUNICATION. This week's word was chosen by yours truly. COMMUNICATION is important, don't you agree?
I listen to music to know that I am not alone
I read books to know that I am not alone
These are song lyrics too! They are from Shonen Knife - The Perfect World. Music and books are ways of communicating thoughts, feelings, facts, and fancies. The CD photo is one I have used in another Sat. Scav. at one time or another...but that's okay, because I really like music. The book I took this morning after I picked it up off the shelf to use for a photo shoot they are doing here at the library today called "My Favorite Book". The idea is for as many people as possible to be photographed with their favorite book. In truth, I'm not sure I can choose a favorite book. Books are a favorite COMMUNICATION medium of mine and I love many, many, many of them. The Accidental Tourist by Anne Tyler was what I chose for today, though. No matter how many times I read it, it continues to touch and move me.
Looking back, it bothers me a little that COMMUNICATION, as highlighted in my world, is so one sided....music and books are speaking to me...and I'm not required to speak back. Ah well. Make of it what you will.
For next weeks Saturday Scavenger Shots I am tagging NoRegrets over at Woman with No Regrets. So go on over and find out what she has planned for us!
Thanks for joining me in this form of COMMUNICATION - blogging!
