Mining for Creativity

Here's a simple photo post.  This really cool sculpture was in the Louvre Museum, summer 2008.  I've used the photo on a variety of photo cards.  It's fun to come up with great captions for it.  I like to think of it as someone mining for creativity.  Speaking of creativity, I received my second blog award!
I received this from Lizzie.  I need to list seven things about myself:
1. I have taught in Dublin, Prague and Budapest.
2. I have walked on The Great Wall of China.
3. I have five brothers and sisters, and 51 first cousins.
4. The last book I read was The Help by Kathryn Stockett.
5. Two DVD sets on my Christmas list are The Tudors (season 3) and Life on Mars (the U.S. version).
6. I don't sew . . . ever.
7. I wish I had tried out for basketball in high school.

Now, to nominate seven other wonderfully creative bloggers who have inspired my creativity:
Connie at Connie's Dream
Nancy at Squirrelly Art
Carol at Life and Howe We Live It
Connie at Creating with Connie

If I nominated you, you are supposed to put this award on your blog, list seven things about yourself and ass the award on to seven other bloggers.  Thanks to each of you for being an inspiration!

Great to read your facts and get to know you better :-)

I love the Louvre - we went to Paris to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and spent some time at the Louvre, but not long enough!

thanks so much Rinda, what a great surprise upon returning from my little vacation to Arizona. I'll work on this in the next day or so when I have a bit more time - gotta think up 7 interesting facts:-)

p.s. I did try out for basketball in high school and they didn't even put me on the D team - I guess I was too much of a swimmer (synchronized) and not much of a jumper!
