30 Day Art Challenge, Day 9: Things You Liked When You Were Little

Good question, Art Challenge.

With a few exceptions, I think I was a pretty standard middle class kid in the 1980’s.  In no particular order:

  • My Little Ponies (and the little Pals that came with them)
  • Notre Dame football
  • Horseback riding (thanks, Mom and Dad!)
  • Track (sprints and long jump, of all things)
  • Writing in my journals
  • Reading (Little House on the Prairie FTW)
  • Legos


What were you into?

Sunday Sentence.

It’s been awhile since I read the book, but it is a fantastic novel.

“I like that every page in every book can have a gem on it. It’s probably what I love most about writing—that words can be used in a way that’s like a child playing in a sandpit, rearranging things, swapping them around. They’re the best moments in a day of writing—when an image appears that you didn’t know would be there when you started work in the morning.”
 The Book Thief, Markus Zusak
