fun with proust, take six - meg


good morning, friends!

have you met meg?

have you read her honest, poignant, sweet blog - the wild and wily ways of a brunette bombshell?

have you seen her beautiful, friendly smile?

well have you??

if not, please check her out by clicking right here.

but first, get to know her a little bit here:

1. what is your idea of perfect happiness?
i just read the loveliest memoir by doris kearns goodwin detailing her life growing up in rockville center and the golden age of baseball. I was particularly taken by how she described the love and affection shared by her parents (every night they'd sit on the porch together and share a cocktail). Upon the discovery of her mother's death she says, "Halfway up the stairs, I heard my father calling for Jeanne, home for the holiday weekend. 'Jeanne! Jeanne!' he cried. 'My pal is gone...My pal is gone.' I ran to my parents' bedroom. My father was sitting on the edge of my mother's bed, sobbing into his hands." My idea of perfect happiness? That at the end of my life I can look back and know that I've spent it with "my pal."

2. what is your most treasured possession?
family photo albums.

3. what is your greatest fear?
oh, there are so many from which to choose. dying before i've ever been truly loved. i mean, my family loves me of course, but...you know what i mean.

4. which talent would you most like to have?
i would love to be a really great dancer. i can't imagine what it feels like to move as they do. i'd even settle for enough groove to get me through a night at a club, but this white girl ain't got rhythm in any sense of the word.

5. what or who is the greatest love of your life?
that story has yet to unfold. and i can't wait.

6. what is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
my inability to listen well.

7. what do you value most in your friends?
i've been thinking about this a lot lately. and i think what it comes down to for me is effort and follow-through.

and meg's favorite photo of herself:


isn't that the cutest photo?

i hope you've enjoyed getting to know meg a little bit. i just adore her, and i know we'd be terrific friends in the "real" world!

    That first one? how beautiful!!! "my pal." I loved that sad but sweet image she painted.

    Meg, it reminded me of something i read over the weekend. Jasmine, i hope you don't mind me taking up space here to post it, but i have a feeling you'd love it too:

    "In the cab station, he told me that when he was growing up he'd see a look of pleasure cross his mother's face and ask what she was thinking; she'd say, I was just thinking of your father.

    "That's how I want us to be," Archie said."
