if I were a time of day, I'd be 8:00 p.m.

if I were a font, I'd be Book Antiqua

if I were a sea animal, I'd be a jellyfish


if I were a direction, I'd be northwest

if I were a piece of furniture I'd be a huge comfy chair

if I were a liquid, I'd be white grape peach juice

if I were a gemstone, I'd be amber with a mosquito in me

if I were a tree, I'd be a ginkgo

if I were a tool, I'd be a Swiss army knife

if I were a flower, I'd be knautia


if I were an element of weather, I'd be a soft breeze

if I were a musical instrument, I'd be a piano

if I were a color, I'd be celedon

if I were an emotion, I'd be motherly love

if I were a fruit, I'd be a peach


if I were a sound, I'd be a whisper

if I were an element, I'd be carbon

This was an interesting exercise. I had to ponder a few of them, but most just came to me. What is your "if" list? I'd love to find out!

That was beautiful! I like that you are a peach, a robin, and motherly love. I need to think about that for a while ... mull it over. I might post that on my blog, too. Thanks for the inspiration.

i love the amber with a mosquito, i wish i'd thought of that! :-)

and i think your soft breeze is much nicer than my hurricane. :-)

it's been lots of fun reading everyone's take on this. i found it was a deeper exercise than i at first thought.

This is such a wonderful idea. It was great to read your answers - like getting to know someone from looking at their bookshelves! If I were I month, I'd be October - in New England!
