NoRegrets is getting quite a reputation amongst those who participate in the Saturday Scavenger Hunt :-) If you ever read through the list of words, cataloged for us by AlienCG, you will note the words next to her name tend to be quite interesting and challenging! This week's word is a great addition to her list...XANADU. Ideally, that word would make you think of Kubla Khan by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. And then maybe you'd think of the monumental song by Rush, based heavily upon that poem. And it did make me think of that, almost immediately...but most immediately Olivia Newton John and ELO started playing in my head. There was roller skating involved and I had to believe we were magic. It was a beautiful moment...*sigh*
Okay. So, once I arose from that little fugue state, I tried to think of an idyllic, exotic, or luxurious place that I would have pictures of...and since I don't travel much (read: at all) I thought I'd have to get a bit non-traditional with my choice. Upon reflection though, I realized that something has recently come into my life. A space that does feel, if not quite exotic, slightly luxurious, and sometimes exceptionally idyllic. I present to you...
My own bed, in my own room. My XANADU. Enough of a stately pleasure-dome for laura b., for now. And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
Thank you for lounging around here with me in my XANADU. Are we supposed to tip the fanners / grape peelers? haha! I am greatly looking forward to seeing all of your visions of XANADU. The neon lights will shine, I'm sure :-) Make sure to check in with NoRegrets to find out who will be tagged for next week!
