Last week I was awarded a Kreativ Blogger award by Wendren! Many thanks :)
And for my acceptance speech, I need to list seven things I love.

I sat in traffic today for hours, both morning and afternoon, though I actually found myself able to concentrate and think about these things, the things I love, of which there are actually too many to name. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

I dare not say: I love traffic.
Though for the first time in weeks I found myself happily trapped in my car, no movement, no mobile phone, no music, nothing.... I just enjoyed moving slowly.

Today I loved traffic. But don't quote me.

Seven Things I love, by Debi van Zyl

1. I love watching planes take off and land. I can honestly never ever get enough of this. I am not exaggerating when I say I can watch it over and over and over...... and over again.

2. I love my plants... voila: my makeshift garden at the studio.

3. I love Neko Case's latest album, Middle Cyclone.

4. I love it my guitar even though I'm still really bad at playing it. Taking lessons has been the best thing I've done in a while. You are never too old (or jaded) to learn something new.

5. I love typrography, in all it's forms. Wish I could practice more.

6. I love history. I can't get enough of it. And this is a secret.... but, I frequently imagine/fantasize about having lived during the Roman Empire, in Victorian London, and the roaring 20's. And actually, if you've read the latest National Geographic's article on the She-King, Hatsheput, which I just read this weekend, it makes me want to live during her reign as well.

And last but not least, and for which I have no photo:

7. I love finding $20 in the pocket of a jacket I haven't worn in months... that was really great. I still have it. Haven't even spent it. What a find!

..... . . . . .. . . .. I think I'm supposed to pass this on, but I'm going to be lazy for few days :)

Great list. Even better than watching planes taking off is being in one of them going somewhere fun. :) I'm off to Durban this weekend - I'm so excited. :)

I have to agree that finding R200/$20 in your jeans pocket definitely ranks as one of my favourites too although I don't think I have ever found that much.
Thanks for sharing.
