This is a meme from BookGirl. She gave me the letter “H,” and then I post 10 things I like that begin with that letter. Here’s my take:
“Hello.” This greeting is almost always a positive. Same with “hugs,” “happiness” and “hope.”
Hummingbirds. My favorite bird. They’re like feathered hearts, flying around.
Hammett and Hellman. Writing mentors. Long-time lovers. Independent lives. My idea of a match made in heaven.
Hemingway. Forget his novels (except for The Sun Also Rises) and forget his macho shtick. His short stories and By-Lines (journalism) are marvelous.
Habeas corpus. It was nice while it lasted.
Hot fudge sundaes. Anyone who doesn’t like a hot fudge sundae probably hates puppies and butterflies, too.
Billie Holiday. One of the best vocalists, ever. If you don’t believe me, listen to “God Bless the Child.”
Halloween. Speaking of holidays, this is a fun one. I love reading gothic novels and ghost stories, watching spooky movies, eating candy and breathing in the crisp autumn air. The holiday you can't take seriously. Halloween rocks!
Hiking. My favorite “back to nature” activity.
Humor. Can’t have enough sense of it. Can't get enough of it.
