the title reminds me of a song...the lyrics go like "it's impossible to be loved by everyone. whoever likes me...fine, for the rest...sorry I can't"

Nice song
Take care
peace and love

Dennis likes the tiny people in the foreground of the collage. Tiny people would be fun.

Reya Mellicker said...

Merle you are so funny!

Library = imagination ... hmmm. Yes, for many people that's true. When I worked at the S. Lake Tahoe Community College Library, people took that idea to extremes. You can't believe the things we caught people doing in the stacks.

Yeah, that. And that, too. And even THAT. Wow. It was quite an education for me!

Avid Reader said...

I am what... I am you are what ... and i'm it.

I can imagine the Club Foot Orchestra playing along to this picture and the people in the audience all with books on their knees.

I do like that.

Baino said...

Alas I am at work (being on the other side of the world) and have no speakers so I had to hum to the montage. Unique.

Delwyn said...

So while the author conducts the script we each hear a different tune...

Auntie, aka cagny said...

Hi Coffee,
Yes, library = imagination. The freedom to imagine is precious indeed.
Do give us some details of the Coffee Festival.

You are one of the blogs of note (along with mine and others) whose content is being reproduced in its entirety on Project Backslash (someone evidently trying to make money through google adwords). He does provide a link back to the original context, but it's still cheesy.

Here's the site:http://www.projectbackslash.com

Here's the email of the webmaster if you would prefer he not do that: boardoutofmymind123@hotmail.com

I also noticed Lori Times Five had her blog copied there. So I'm going to post this in her comments.

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Books, music, creativity and imagination - yep, it all works together well!

Mary said...

Hi Coffee! Just pulling my nose out of the school books for minute to say "hello". You seem to be doing just fine as usual. :)

Coffee Messiah said...

Thanks for all your interesting comments.

Too tired to think and appreciate the 2 folks who pointed out the person stealing blog posts from me and you.

I've contacted and emailed the party in question and Wordpress.

Will lay low for awhile.

Cheers and Thanks for stopping by while we were gone!
