If I Could Be Anything ...

Making "the most of our moments" sometimes means stepping beyond our comfort zone.  

After voluntarily allowing ice water to be dumped on my head this week, I may have become either more brave or more foolish.  Probably a little of both, as I decided to tackle the second part of this week's Words for Wednesday Challenge
"Write a poem and tell us what you would like to be if you had no restrictions." 

The last poem I can remember writing was a limerick in fifth grade!  I'm not sure my poetic talent has improved much since then - but perhaps these photos of my cat will make up for my literary limitations!

It would be so nice ...




I used to think it would be nice to be a bird or a horse  -  but if I could be any animal, I would definitely choose to be a house cat.

What would your choice be?

This post may be linked to one of the great link-up parties I follow and list on my blog.  Check them out!

  2. How true it is. Cats rule.
    I have often said that in my next life I would like to be a cat. To make it more challenging, I think I would like to be one of my cats - so that I am suitably indulged.

    1. Cat's DO rule - and I suspect yours really are indulged :)

  3. You nailed it! This is terrific. I would want to be a bird! That way I could travel as far and as often as I wished. I wonder if birds can get Alzheimer's? Thanks so much for your donation! It was very nice of you.

  5. Sorry - but you would get bored as a cat. You are far too active. :)
