White Light; Fractured right, spectral delight.

What is a meme?

ETYMOLOGY

I was invited to participate in a meme.

I don't like much like meme's --as they exist in the blog-o-sphere.. and Grocho Marx like, I have anti social tendencies ( I don't want to belong to any club that invites me to be a member)

But I like TeaBird (and I like to be asked to join, (even if I don't want to be a member!)--a bit of irrational behavior, I know, but that's how it is!)
So this meme is about a 6 work memoir. Here are the directions (copied and pasted from Tea Birds blog):

Here are the directions:

  • 1. Write your own six word memoir.

  • 2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.

  • 3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.

  • 4. Tag five more blogs with links.

And here is a link back to the start of this meme (a ploy no doubt to increase traffic)--I refuse to tag any one person.. anyone who wants to participate in this meme can consider themselves tagged.

I don't have a photo for this meme—and if you're looking for my 6 word memoir, look to the title of the post.

Meanwhile, my not quite solid red socks are taking shape.. Now that I have completed the heel, the ribbons will work their way round the leg..
