Photo Hunt #7 Bright ... and 'mouse' musings


This is my 7th ...
(but the 1st 6 are at Small Reflections)
Today's theme is Bright

After the rain came ...
Bright Skies

(Next week's theme is: Pointed)
~ ~ ~

I happened upon
the Blogthing below at Misty Dawn's last week
but because I was overly busy, I
didn't actually take the Quiz
until this morning ...

and when these results showed up I experienced surprise ... almost skipped sharing this one at all ... but then decided to reminisce a bit about 'my mouse persona' of yesteryear ... musing in personal reflection mode to see what comes up ... something I've not done here in quite a while.

You Were a Mouse


You quietly examine life's lessons
and see multiple meanings in things.


You are also good at discovering details and
remaining in the background.


What Animal Were You In a Past Life?

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert O'Brien (1971) has long been one of my favorite children's books, and for a long time I strongly identified with the main character ... a mouse by the name of Mrs. Frisby who rises to the occasion in a big way ... discovering she's able to face her fears & handle dangerously challenging situations in resourceful ways. In fact, I adopted a variation of her name as the 'handle' I used when I first explored online interaction ... way back before the World Wide Web existed as the Internet we know and love today.

I believe it serendipitous today that I'm reminded of this currently, and although I anticipated being some sort of canine critter, methinks I'm okay with the finding of 'mouse' ... and the two descriptors do feel like a 'fit' as I type this now. I'm glad to be reminded that I, like Mrs. Frisby, have risen to the occasion whenever I've faced MY fears ... and that's a good think to know.

How appropriate (the picture and the mouse thing)... great observation and great capture. :)

How interesting. Love the sky photos. Just went to try the past life animal. It said I was a horse. You can't be fenced in - you long to run free.
You are good at overcoming obstacles and realizing your potential.

I like the progression i oft think it might be fun to try taking once an hour and posting the progression

Joyce said...

I was a crow, but since it was just based upon my birth date, maybe the answers are random? Those little quizzes are fun, anyhow.

Your sky photos are lovely. :)

SandyCarlson said...

That's a lovely collage!

WillThink4Wine said...

Your collage is wonderful! I've got to try that sometime!

Eve said...

You Were a Dog
You are an excellent companion and a loyal friend.
A good protector, you smell trouble before it arrives.

I expected to be the mouse - you and I so frequently coincide on these things. I'm still thinking about the smelling trouble part, but I think it mostly fits.

Wow! The white brightness in your cloud pics is almost blinding! Stunning!

mama meji said...

Pretty shots of the sky. And the collage is perfectly done. Don't we just love looking at the skies after the rain?

sexy momma said...

I appreciate each of you dropping by my 1st Photo Hunt here at Sacred Ruminations. I enjoyed sharing my ‘cloud collage’ here and reading your comments this morning. It was fun to visit others on Saturday (while waiting and hoping my new laptop would arrive) to see how they interpreted the theme this week too. If I’ve not yet been to yours, I’ll be by later this afternoon (or tomorrow), but this morning I’m off to my Photoshop Elements class.

Yertle, Joyce and Eve
I’m delighted you each decided to ‘play along’ with the Quiz and share your results here in comments. We’re quite a group aren’t we … a mouse, horse, crow, and dog ;--)

To all - I hope you all had a Marvelous Monday and the rest of the week brings many interesting experiences and joys.
Hugs and blessing,
