1. Link the person(s) who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.

4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged bloggers’ blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

Six unspectacular quirks:

1. I never use an alarm clock, and never will. If I don’t wake up naturally, I sleep until I do. This is one reason I cannot work day shifts.

2. I am a compulsive reader and writer. I am also a compulsive eater, and that’ not as healthy.

3. I do not wear clothes with any kind of advertising, brand logo, cartoon or message.

4. I love Lapsang Souchong tea. I’ve never met anyone else who can stand even the smell of it.

5. I still think about horses every day, though I haven’t ridden in twenty years. I still watch horse videos, and imagine myself galloping across a field.

6. I hate ball sports. That means football, baseball, soccer, basketball, and any other ball sport not mentioned.

About Marahm

At first glance, I may appear to be a middle-aged American woman with kids, grandkids, retired from a job in a hospital, gratefully relieved from the responsibilities that come with all of that. Behind the image, which is true enough, I am fairly unhinged from much of American mainstream living, having spent twelve years in Saudi Arabia, years that sprung me from societal and familial impositions, and narrow bands of truth. I have learned to embrace my identity as a seeker, an artist, and a writer. I study Arabic and Italian language, because I love them, and I love their people. I still dream of spending more time in the Middle East and Italy, though the dreaming now seems more real than the possibilities. I am a photographer. I write, and sometimes publish, flash memoir, and now a blog or two.

    I love horse riding too. But i was not a horse rider. I also like basketball and voleyball and i used to play them since childhood.
    Now i just do hiking. lol

  2. Marahm says:

    Hiking is a very healthy activity, and can be done as one gets older. I love walking through natural settings. There is a nature preserve near my home; sometimes I go there just to walk.

    I suck at such tags. Can’t think of what to write! You on the other hand have interesting quirks:)
    We have something in common, I also do not use the alarm clock.

    Marahm and Shahrzad, don’t forget riding recumbent bikes! Very suitable for people with backproblems!

    It is clear that you are infected with the ”horse-bug” no way that is ever going to change. The only way to stop the dreams is to start riding again. 🙂

    Ah! now I know what a pingback is, and the next step is to learn how to do it. Welcome, Juli.

  8. WM says:

    Marahm, what kind of things do you read/write?

  9. darvish says:

    Very quirky 🙂 So you like boxing?

    Ya Haqq!

  10. Marahm says:

    darvish: Boxing! Verbally, perhaps, and then only rarely.

    WM: I write personal memoir. My current favorite reading subjects are Italian literature and Depth Psychology. I don’t read fiction any more, unless it’s Naguib Mahfouz or someone of that caliber.

  11. Aafke says:

    *of that caliber*? That sounds rather snooty, 😉 after all you read my blog too, don’t you 🙂 ??? 😕 !!!! 😀

  12. Aafke says:

    Wauw!!! love your new heading!!!

  13. Marahm says:

    Thanks, Aafke. Now that I’m more comfortable in the blog environment, I decided to start using my own photo-art This photo was a dull, drab mistake until I played with it in the photo-editing program that came preloaded on my laptop.

    So I sound snooty? That’s nice! You’re in good company here –but you already knew that, no?

  14. Aafke says:

    Moi? Snooty???
    Fi donc! Quelle horreur!
    Pas du tout!

    That banner is really cool! And usually I don’t like too much mucking about with photoshop, but this is a magical landscape and I like it very much!
