The Queen's Meme # 13 ~ Peaceful Places

Today has been a blur.
I was in a meeting until 7:00pm. My brain is not firing on all syntax volts. And Blogger is acting wonky. I shall attempt to answer in photographs.

1. How do you find your own personal peace/nirvana?

2. Where do you go to find respite and solace?
Is there a particular place, city, country, room in your house?

3. Who is the most peace-loving person you know? What makes them so?
4. What do you do when your inner peace is threatened?
Do you have a strategy, a routine, religious faith, a mantra......to calm yourself down?

5. What is your favorite comfort food?(Thanks Ann!)

6. Do you have a pet that brings you happiness and peace? If not, what type of animals bring you peaceful thoughts?You See, There Were These Bees.... 7. What is your favorite peace song? Desert Songbird's rendition of Dona Nobis Pacem

8. Did you post a peace globe on November 5th and participate in BlogBlast For Peace? If so, please repost your peace globe here with a link to your peace post so that the Queen's players can enjoy it. If not, join in! It's not too late. Here's how....

From Anndi's "Transition" blog. Click to read "A celebration of beginnings....and remembrance."

See you tomorrow. Click here to play The Queen's Meme.
P.S. I'm still reading your wonderful peace posts. Tomorrow is Veteran's Day in the United States and Remembrance Day in Canada. Let us remember.

I thought Desert Songbird's song was wonderful too. I wish that I had her talent.

My comfort food is peanut butter marshmallow toast. It works!

Travis said...

My comfort food is mac & cheese, and CAKE!

Here's to a peaceful day!

Desert Songbird said...

You're killing me with embarrassment here, My Queen.

Now I want ice cream, and I haven't even had breakfast...

Charles Gramlich said...

Fried chicken is my favorite comfort food.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jennifer - Peanut butter marshmallow toast? I'll try it!

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - I love mac 'n cheese!

Mimi Lenox said...

Songbird - You make me proud. Stop with the embarrassment. Bah!

Ice cream? In the morning?

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - Fried chicken is great (no skin though)..can't do the skin. We're all hungry now. Going for more French Vanilla coffee.

B&J's Apple Pie (no longer made :( ) was outrageous...

Nov 11 is the day my grandpa chose to leave the world. I have no doubt he picked the day in some way.

Today I remember sitting in a shadowed hospital room while a little bird sang its heart out just beyond the balcony. I remember going out to get lunch and buying a red poppy from ... my one old school teacher.I'd forgotten that.

It was a gorgeous spring day in Africa. And I went back with a poppy and a sandwich and stood with all the family and watched him leave us. It was, odd as it may sound, a very beautiful day.

Nothing prepares you for the fact that death can be beautiful and terrible and peaceful all at the same time.

Sending you lots of love and tonight I'll be lighting a candle for all fathers and grandfathers.

Mimi Lenox said...

Xmichra - We're all on a food kick it seems.

I checked and it is the next link in the Linky that is linked back to the original meme post...not my own post. I think it's fixed now. Thanks for the alert!

Mimi Lenox said...

Cooper - I was improvising that day and having a marvelous time. You play, right?

Mimi Lenox said...

Michelle - It is so true. All those emotions jumbled up into one. Hugs to you. I'm sure you're having a hard day.

I am still getting round to all the peace posts. Savoring them. I will be there soon!

Anndi said...

My comfort food? Grilled cheese and tomato soup. It reminds me of coming home for lunch from school.

But I MUST have some of that ice cream. I may have to take a day trip to Ben and Jerry's soon. Chicklet and I had a blast when we went.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

The pictures tell it all. An original way of showing the answers.

Mejis said...

Mmmm Ben & Jerry's ice cream. I had some for dessert today.
Great pictures! Glad you're back. Tuesday's were so empty without your meme.
