If I were a .....

If I were a month I'd be September
If I were a day I'd be Saturday
If I were a time of day I'd be deepest night

If I were a sea animal I would be a mermaid

If I were a planet I would be Saturn
If I were a direction I would be due South
If I were a piece of furniture I would be a hammock, swinging in the breeze

If I were a liquid I would be the sea

If I were a gemstone I would be an amethyst
If I were a tree I would be a river willow
If I were a flower I would be a peony

If I were an element of weather I would be a summer storm

If I were a tool I would be a torch
If I were a musical instrument I would be a violin
If I were a color I would be the softest sea blue-green

If I were an element I would be water

If I were an emotion I would be resolve
If I were a fruit I would be a lime
If I were a facial expression I would be a single arched eyebrow

If I were a sound I would be trees blowing in a high wind

If I were a car I would be a jeep (or a Jag)
If I were a food I would be a pineapple
If I were a material I would be cotton batik

If I were a place I would be the beach

If I were a taste I would be spicy hot with a hint of sweetness
If I were a scent I would be amber and sandalwood
If I were a body part I would be hands

If I were a song I would be 'Melt With You'

If I were a bird I would be an osprey
If I were a gift I would be wrapped in the funny pages
If I were a street I would Lombard Street
If I were a city I would be a hidden treasure, written up in a travel magazine

If I were a pair of shoes I would be flip-flops

My thanks to Lori and to Pearl and Pebble - wonderful blogs that I 'borrowed' this from. Please, take this and fill it out for yourself and then pass it on to your friends. It's such a wonderful way to take a minute and think about yourself - about who you are and what you're about

....for a change

This was really challenging to do. It's hard to sit and think about yourself and what you 'are' (or want to be). I'd love to see everyone I know do this and then read what they've written. I think it would be very enlightening and surprising. :)

I saw this on Lori's blog as well.... and posted it on mine.... I did mine as sort of a rapid response exercise.... very telling when you go back and think about your answers... great post. :)

Kirsten, it's really a fun excercise in self-awareness. I'm having a really great time reading everyone else's, too!
