Alex J Cavanaugh , our Ninja Captain, is hosting the First loves Blogfest:
Post your first loves – first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person. Four loves, one blogfest!
Mad monkey Kung fu– My father took me to watch this one when I was five years old, and, I spent most of it trying to hide under the seat. Maybe I should watch it again, to see if it brings back any memories?
First Song: As a kid I remember Phil Collins playing at our place. Can’t remember the songs, but then, I’ve never been very musical.
First Book: It was a comic, actually, meant for kids far more grown up than me. I made my grandma read it to me so many times, I learned the dialogs by heart, and my parents (from what I remember from our family stories) amused themselves (and others) by making two-year-old me ‘read’ aloud the writing…and apparently I did a flawless job despite not knowing the alphabet.
First Person: I had my first crush when I was fourteen, I think. Just one of those things–nothing special. But if we talk about love as a universal emotion, the first person I adored was my grandma, who passed on when I was six. I wish I had seen more of her– she was a self-taught poet, a whimsical cook given to experiments in the kitchen, and a spiritual seeker whose heights I aspire to today.
So that’s the saga of my first loves. I’ll go blog visiting via the linky list now…
