Expressing myself for the WPC

“Be yourself – not your idea of what you think someone else’s idea of yourself should be. “ ~ Henry David Thoreau

This week, Krista challenges us to show what “express yourself” means to us.

I enjoy expressing myself with my piano music, although nowadays I don’t play nearly as often as I used to.

My eyes often express what I’m feeling, like in this photo of hubby and happy me.

I love to express my joy at being granny to my adorable grandkids.

I adore travel, but as clothes are part of my way of expressing my individuality, I don’t tend to travel light.

Taking every opportunity for a bit of fun that comes along, ensures that I have a great time wherever I find myself.

I’m also not averse to expressing my ‘No Fear’ with a bit of up in the air riskiness, as long as I know I’ll be coming back down to terra firma afterwards.

Pretty shoes are important to me, but on the odd occasion, I don’t mind expressing my sense of adventure in really ugly wellies.

Let Me Serenade You, for Jake’s Challenge

Jake’s Sunday Post Challenge this week is ‘With Musical Instrument’. Being a musician myself, I really admire people who use their musical ability to entertain others. From experience, I know that it can take a lot of courage to actually perform in front of total strangers, but once one gets past the nerves, the performer can enjoy it, as much as the audience.

These song lyrics from the 1960’s American rock band ‘Three Dog Night’, came into my head whilst I was looking for photos of musicians who have serenaded me on my travels.

Let Me Serenade You

I will serenade you, all along the way
I will serenade you, anyway you say

Take you to the country, I’ll take you to the shore
Show you to my garden, I know you’ll make it grow.

If you let me serenade you
You know that’s what you come for,
So that I will serenade you

And when the walls begin to fall
Can’t hold back the joy
That love will conquer all.

Every moment, every day,
If you want to hold me, I will stay.
