MLydiaM ~ March 2011


Thoughts inspired by this week's photo (of yummy garlic) by Tess Kincaid at Magpie Tales
and top b&w image (not my work) via flickr.

Never knew Garlic could be so sweet.

Cheers,

I guess I used to avoid using garlic in my kids' food when I knew they were going out after supper!

Niamh said...

That made me go aww...and most perfect image!

jane.healy said...

love the picture!

I feel abit like that sometimes ...

mythopolis said...

What a wonderful photo! PS: I would dance with a 'garlic girl' any old day....up close and personal, too!

Trellissimo said...

Clever combination of visuals and words...

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I am a garlic FREAK....I know it has to ooze from my pores I eat so much of it!

I love when Rachael Ray says she eats so much garlic that she smells like a salami!

Oh, I wish you had written this longer! It would make a lovely short story. And what a great grayscale photograph. I was so taken with the sad old people and their thought-bubbles I didn't at first notice their capering shadows. This Magpie was a lovely experience, and I looked at it a long time. Thank you.

Indigo said...

I absolutely loved this! I agree with ARnab never knew the delicate dance of life could be enriched with garlic. (Hugs)Indigo

the watercats said...

This post is just beautiful. despite my horribly cynical tendencies, i do appreciate lovely things like this :-)

Helen said...

Lover's Dance ... the energy, the fire, the sweetness.

Fireblossom said...

That's so clever how you did that!

By the way, that cup of coffee on your sidebar looks sooooo inviting!

Brian Miller said...

ha...garlic just adds a bit of kick...and dancing is not so bad esp if you both have eaten it...smile.

Arnab Majumdar~ Ah, yes, at least as sweet as the fun of reading your comment!

earlybird~ Really? That is so funny, because I only imagined this probably happened in some household somewhere at sometime. Now you are proof. :)

Niamh~ I admired the image so much and enjoyed your comment.

jane.healy~ (I like that dot in between your names.) I am sorry to read that you feel like that sometimes. May that not be true in the future.:)

mythopolis~ Great pic, I agree. I would dance with a garlic guy that way too.

Trellissimo~ Thank you so much!

Cat Chat~ I love it too, Caren. How about your cats? I have noticed that garlic is added to many dog food formulas but have not checked to see if the same is true with cat food. Supposedly it repels fleas (not fact-checked). ^.^

Lucy~ You looked at this magpie for a long time, and I read your comment more than once! It was so beautifully expressed that I admired it.

Indigo~ "The delicate dance of life" = how beautiful. I think it has been enriched with garlic for centuries; it is such luscious stuff!

the watercats~ Oh, you may be cynical but your singing voice would never be the beautiful thing that it is without you overriding your cynicism at times. ^.^

Helen~ Absolutely! I am remembering an Italian dinner house in Reno when I was a kid, where my sister and I could watch my mother and step-father (both beautiful dancers, he especially) on the dance floor after dinner.

Fireblossom~ Thanks much. :)
That cuppa is charming to me, too. I found it on Google images and wish I had tried to track down the name of the photographer (if available).

Brian~ True, but even if I had not eaten it and he had I would find the aroma intoxicating. I just love garlic (obviously!).

Aayushi Mehta said...

Lovely writing. And the photo is so beautiful (the first one).

Roxana said...

aahahah

adorable, your fine sense of humour - and i love garlic, so i am with you on this one as well! :-)

Lydia said...

Aayushi Mehta~ Thank you for your comment and for visiting my blog. :)

Roxana~ I am glad you like the humor and thrilled that you are a fellow garlic-lover. :)

bfk said...

Love the poetry and the image.
...And the garlic.

Well done, Lydia

Phivos Nicolaides said...

That's amazing. Love it! xoxo

Lydia said...

bfk~ If you think it was good then I am most pleased. :)

Phivos~ I love it too! :)
