QUIXOTIC / SATURDAY SCAVENGER HUNT

Quixotic:

1) like or befitting Don Quixote

2) extravagantly chivalrous or romantically idealistic; visionary; impractical or impracticable.


Cu Chulainn

How about a Celtic Warrior tale?

CĂș Chulainn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia





A romantic display of affection.


Or a couple of romantic songs.

Laura - Flogging Molly Lyrics

Flogging Molly - Never Met A Girl Like You Before


Or true life stories of heroic people.

Wow this was a tough one! But I like a good challenge. I could only manage one of my own photos and had to resort to being crafty. Thanks NoRegrets!

  3. A windmill, perhaps? The Man of La Mancha. I remember this because I taught my sister to sing "The Impossible Dream" when she was 2 years old. It was very impressive.

  6. Cube-- Hahahaha... I'll tell you why that's so funny. I live in a gorge famous for it's winds and there are a bazillion windmills here... did I think of that? Noooooooo. lol

    I even have a photo of windmill parts being trucked down the freeway. They come in several humongous parts.

    Don Quixote would need a giant horse with really long legs and one hell of a lance to tilt one of our windmills.

    Oh crap... see what you've done. Now I'm going to have to do a post on windmills. You've set my brain on fire! Thanks!

  7. I love the way you did your post! We've seen in the past how it often becomes not so much about the photos, but getting a look into people's free associations :-) I especially loved those Flogging Molly songs.

  9. billy-- You never fail to surprise me. :)

    "I have dreamed thee too long
    Never seen thee or touched thee
    But known thee with all of my heart
    Half a prayer, half a song
    Thou hast always been with me
    Though we have been always apart
    Dulcinea"

  11. Jeff May is an inspirational hero. I hope he is doing better now. He sure deserves the best.

    Where do you get this stuff? It is all amazing!

    I have no idea who Dulcinea is and feel very stoopid, thank you so much!

  12. laura b.-- How did I skip you? Sorry about that.

    Thank you. Part of my trouble was being tied up this week and not being about to get out. But my brain froze... So I did what I always do when my brain freezes... research. ;-)

    You will often find something Irish here. I should have put is as one of my obsessions. Ha.

  13. crazy4coens-- The Irish part is a hobby of mine. The month of March, is my time to share Irish tales and history with my school kids. I that that very seriously. I love the stories about Cu Chulainn.

    The others were searches on Google. You know where the Flogging Molly comes from.

    Dulcinea is Don Quixote's object of affection and the woman he desires to protect and serve as a knight. My quote is from the Man of La Mancha musical. Such a wonderful story.

    Is not Jeff May a wonder! Holy moly.

  14. Embrace the uncertainty and know that karma is in perform and, over all, think.
    It was just enjoyable to see what we were told. Why would that not be accurate for psychic feeling?
