I got this from Anita Dawes & Jaye Marie. Be sure to check out their blog.
What is a Chinese Portrait? It is a set of questions ones answers about themselves. Most people agree the answers should be spontaneous. They’re then used to get to know the writer better.
Though I looked, I could not (easily) fins an origin for this, so if you’re curious you’ll have to do your own research.
On to my Chinese Portrait:
If I were a sound… I would be falling rain.
If I were an animal… I would be a cat; pampered and petted.
If I were a flaw… I would be a crack in a mirror.
If I were a season… I would be autumn when colors blaze.
If I were music… I would be a violin piece.
If I were a sin… I would be greed.
If I were an element… I would be earth, whether I like it or not.
If I were a song… I would be Jingle Bells, sung loudly and off key.
If I were a color… I would be red.
If I were a fruit…. I would be watermelon.
If I were an insect… I would be a butterfly. (does that count?)
If I were a natural phenomenon… I would be a tornado – become the thing you fear.
If I were a month…I would be October.
If I were a place…I would be a wooded stream with lots of bunnies hanging around.
If I were a job… I would be annoying and detail orientated.
If I were a word… I would be happy.
What would YOU be? Feel free to post your answers in your blog, or in a comment, or even on Facebook. You can use these questions or you can make up your own/find others you’d rather answer.
Have a red Jingle Bells kind of day!
