So I was visiting Leah at Creative Every Day today and I learned a new word. The word is "meme" as in "She found a meme on another blog and she created a post with her own replies." For a pretty clear definiton of a meme, you can check here. Apparantly you can pronounce it so it rhymes with "dream" or like it is the "mem" part or "memory". I think it should be pronounce "me, me!" because whenever I read a meme, I immediately want to respond to it. Hence, "Me, me !!"
Maybe not ...
Anyway, saw this meme on Leah's post and had to reply. Like Leah said, what is it about memes that just makes you want to respond to them ? Leah finds them calming... I think I feel a sense of belonging mingled with a sense of uniqueness... What is it about memes ...?

I know/knew nothing about "meme", LOL! I love your image with you in a crown! So wonderful. I too have been in a blue period. So excited for the change of fall, but then a sadness for losing summer, all mixed with other stuff. i hope you blues did move, bless you for finding a creative voice in the midst of it. I love the piece...brave in sadness brave in love. Yes!!!
You should create now "a meme" about BLUE. Enjoyed reading all this...
Blue is serenity, calming and enhances perception!
And so it blew the blues away :)
The piece you created here is fabulous! I didn't know how to pronounce "meme" (I prononced it with french accents and it sounded like mémé, an old grandmother...), so thank you for the explanation!
