“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Jack Kerouac

  1. Really love this. Almost makes me want to blog again ; )
    As an aside, I love black onyx and amythest too. Chai and chocolate - obviously and preferably at the same time.
    Beautiful photie of you both. Wildflower is such a little pixie there.

  2. Oh...I want to play. Maybe tomorrow?! Love your blog.

  3. Led Zepplin and Vivaldi, eh? You are a woman of eclectic musical tastes indeed!

  4. Love your quote. I wanna play, too. Thanks for sharing the picture, too. You really are beautiful! (And I so appreciate having a face to go with the words!)

  5. This was fun to read. I think I will play along.

  6. I like reading these types of lists -- they help put a picture of someone into better focus. Great idea. Also -- loooove Kerouac, too. What a beautiful mind.
    I'll play tomorrow when I have a few more minutes to spare.

  7. I'll play. Will post my abc's in a few minutes :)

  9. This is fun!

    I've done it too, to be found here:

  10. Great idea. I will attempt to play along. Laughing at the Zeppelin and Vivaldi because I lurve Zeppelin and Vivaldi because I just went to my son's winter art exhibition at his Montessori school and the works of art were painted while the children listened to Vivaldi through headsets...My son will be far more cultured than I.

  11. love it...only one that surprised me were siblings, don't think you have ever mentioned?? am i wrong? somehow assumed you were an only child, like your Wildflower...don't know why...and this picture is even better than the last...

  12. That last post is me...Debbie

  13. Okay, I did mine. Fun stuff, I love talking about myself. :)

  14. Nice idea Mon, have done my ME list...It is super nice to get more of a rounded idea of the people we are connecting with. Once again a gorgeous shot!

  15. I joined in the fun too.

  16. I've been having such trouble posting on your blog, lately. Don't know if it's my computer or what! Anyway, fun list! Loved the pic, too!

    yw (aka: A Green Spell)

  17. fun reading everyone's abcs...i joined in as well!

  18. Greenspell - what a nuisance, don't know what the problem is.

    GM - I swear you look like a different person each time you change your profile pic, lol.

  19. Hey pretty lady!
    Quixote was going to be L boy's middle name, named it after St Francis of Assasi instead.

  20. I know..I am a Gemini and have many faces...the trick is to learn how to be comfortable with all of them and to stop myself from always trying to be the same one to please others!!
