Update: Where I'm From, the meme
If you're seeing this again and again in your feed, it's cause I keep getting new additions to the list and they are worth reading. Send yours along, too!
This meme originated with Fragments from Floyd (also there, details of how to "play"). He quotes this "Where I'm From" poem by George Ella Lyons:
I am from clothespins,I think it was originally a teaching exercise. Find the whole poem here.
from Clorox and carbon-tetrachloride.
I am from the dirt under the black porch....
Here are more "Where I'm From" poems, now mostly sent my way via the fabulous Michele, some found on-line, and some written in response to my challenge!
Mr. Max and Boo
True Jersey Girl
Art on a Limb
Sea and Sky
Nina Turns 40
Music and Cats
And This Too

Blogging in Paris
And, lurking in the comments section of "Blogging in Paris," you can find "Where Melinama is from". It reads like an explanation of why I converted to Judaism.
What a lovely way to learn about some blog neighbors! If you've done one, or are willing to do one now, let me know and I'll link to it.
