L is for … lots and lots of words

So it turns out, there are lots of L words … and I like lots of those L words … but finding some that describe me are a little difficult … so lets just go with what I like …

Love … love for family and love for friends is so important to me … it’s not just important to me, it is me … it is an integral part of who I am.

My baby ... my mom .... 20 years ago

Liberal … my beliefs are quite liberal …. I truly believe there is room for all of us, with our various faiths and beliefs … coexist people … coexist

Labyrinth … as in my mind … it’s not a simple one directional steel trap … it has layers and levels and secret blinds and alleys that allow me to hold dear, retain, float freely, calculate, balance, create, fly and whatever comes ….

I often wonder if the mind has colour when its all firing away ...

Lace … I love old lace … something with substance … preferably and old ivory crocheted lace … to me it represents the intertwining of threads … like our lives … like this earth … how everything twists and turns together … little bits intertwining together to form greater & bigger parts … gotta watch it ...i'm starting to think a little too large ...

Luminous … a moon child … born under the sign of the moon … surrounded by the beautiful cold light of the moon … with just a wee bit of Loco thrown into the mix.

these little sea creatures remind me of moons in a deep blue sea/sky ...

Light … I am so light deprived … it’s a condition … it affects a lot of us here in the Pacific North West …

colour and light deprived ...

Lemon Meringue Pie … my dad has always made the best Lemon Meringue Pie … always with home made lemon curd … he is an old school baker, no bottled lemon juice or shortcuts... all fresh, nothing fake. Sometimes I relate to the pie … like it I am light and fluffy on the top … I have little peaks and valleys and just the right amount of sweetness … and in the middle … I’m all real … a little tart, but 100% real. And the crusty … yeah, I have just the right amount of flaky … I’m able to laugh at what may come!

I just wanna know how, who and when those damn wrinkles got put around my eyes???

Lollygag … yeah … I do …. And dawdle, procrastinate and wander … I am amazed that I actually manage to get these posts done up on time … it must be the influence of Mrs. Matlock …tee he he

I'm not much of a 'lollygagger' myself...but there are days I wish I could! Loved your 'L' post!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

Right now lollygagging with a toddler is the best!

Viki said...

Loved all your L words. I especially loved liberal because that's what I am. Good way to describe it coexist. I like that definition.

mrs. c said...

I agree with you, too many good "l" words and it is hard to make a choice. You did a great collage of photos and ideas!

Debbie said...

Lollygag, I have not heard that term in a long time lol!~ I loved them all, very clever!

Christy said...

Lovely L post, learning more about you was enLightening.

Riet said...

What a Lovely L post. Have a nice day

Steph said...

You always pick the best words and then express them in unusual and meaningful ways. I like learning about you. You also encourage me a lot with your comments.

My name is PJ. said...

L-L-L-Lots of L words! Loverly!!

mbkatc230 said...

Great choices for today's letter. I love that photo of your baby and mom - just precious. Kathy

Julie Schuler said...

Now I'm hungry for a liberal slice of lemon pie.

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

Yes, lots of great L words. I'm afraid I lollygag too. That's a new word for me, but one I'll certainly remember. I lean toward the liberal point of view too, but avoid politics because it's become so filled with hate. I now consider politics a necessary evil in a Democracy. Sad, but true.

Tina said...

Oh that was LoveLy :-) I feel like I know you a Lot better now. And I second that wrinkles around the eye thing...don't really know how mine got there either, or when...Thanks for visiting LIfe is Good!

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Tracy said...

Prairiemaid said...

Lemon meringue pie and lollygagging...I am jealous, I didn't think of these! LOL

I am following you now, so next time you pick out such great words, I will be quick to discover them.

Amy said...

great use of the letter L..

dEE said...

A post that needs to be reread but a brain that thinks on the opposite side than yours. I crunch numbers mindlessly. Your words just see some relaxing.

Enjoyed it!

Jenny said...

Wonderful letter "L's" and my favorite is lollygag! I've used that word before and people look at me like I'm crazy.

Now, I'm happy to say I know another crazy person who uses that word, too!

And where are the wrinkles?

I don't see any...so if those are wrinkles I'm wondering what I actually have!

Sigh.

Great L post!

Thanks for helping to make Alphabe-Thursday so Lovely!

A+

easternsparkle said...

You're right lots of L's - lovely photo of your Mum and baby!! If you get a morph suit, you'll have to share the photos!!

Your "L" post is just wonderful and so insightful. You really incorporated a lot of "L" words so nicely into a delightful narrative.
