SongOgraphy

Linking with my friend Kathy at "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out" for Songography.  Thank you hostess, mostest.


If I had a million dollars, I'd be glad I hadn't had to get it by playing Survivor and outwitting, outplaying, and out-whatevering the other out it is you have to do to be the winner.  No shower for a month and a half?  I couldn't take it.

Seriously, a million dollars isn't that much money anymore, sadly.  Especially after taxes, but let's say the million was net.  I wonder what opportunity might knock, what way I'd be inclined to go, what would speak to me, or what might be the trappings of that so called good fortune.  Somehow I think if I had a million dollars it would be paralyzing.
 
If I had a million dollars I do know that I'd find a job that I liked, rather than one I feel trapped in.
So, if you win that jumbo mega-bucks thing, send me 1 of the 496 mil.  Help a girl out, would ya?
 
 
Looking forward to next week's Songography.  Wonder where that will take my brain.

I'm lovin' the look of the collages you've been doing. I'm sure you would out-wit the islanders but are you ready to eat bugs?

I adore this photo!

Oh my, you've outdone yourself with this photo AND thoughts. I could never win a mil on Survivor. But "The Amazing Race"???? Now THAT I could do. AND I'd get to travel while doing it...so that frees up my million for even MORE travel :). Interesting perspectie on the possibility of a million dollars paralyzing you. I feel I'd be the opposite, it would free me...at least for a little while. BEcause like you said, one million just doesn't go as far as it use to (or at least I've been told). Can't WAIT to see what you do with "I Want to Break Free"! Thanks for joining in on Song-ography my friend!

That is amazing!! And you're right - a million doesn't seem like "that much" anymore!

Carol Blackburn said...

OK Susan I like what you've done here. Do you call it a collage or montage or ??? Whatever it is, it is cool.

Kim Cunningham said...

In my younger days I used to think I sure would like to try to win one of those survivor type contests. Now, not so much. Really cool image!

Kick a$$ shot and post!
I haven't played yet ... not as creative as most of you!!!

Amazing collage here. Very deep and really grabs your attention. I'm not sure what I would really do with a Million dollars and while it might not last that long theses days it would be fun to see what I could or would actually do with it.

speechless! amazing! wow! love your words & photo. I have to say, a million sounds like a tidy sum of money, but, after taxes, it's still more than I'll ever have... It's been fun to see what everyone puts on their blog.

You know I just love your collage images, this one is no exception. I love all the elements at play, the water, the trees, the field the way your walking towards a bolted door and the graffiti on the wall.

How sick is it that I've often thought that I'd like to be on Survivor if only to lose the weight from the rice diet (I'd have to pass on the rat/bat/vermin brain/cow intestine or other "OMG NEVER" eating challenges - I'm on a diet after all!!). It is true that a million doesn't go as far as you might think - but perhaps it would give temporary relief.

Your art here is so intriguing. Excellent!

Love what you created here. I would pass on the million dollars. As nice as it sounds, I like my life just the way it is.

Karen said...

What a stunning photo! I love the composition, the texture and the story it tells.

Wonderful collage work that captures so much emotion, especially when combined with your title. It's hard feeling trapped in a job that doesn't fit.

If I had an extra million, I would book that river cruise in Europe along with first-class airline tickets.

You are so good at these collages! You certainly captured the feeling of "directionless." I've know that feeling many times!

A million dollars I could cope with quite easily! I often think I'd have trouble with the 60+ million pounds that's often the prize in our lottery system. What on earth do you do with that kind of money? I have a little fantasy that, if I had that sort of money, I'd like to look for people who need something and supply it anonymously - you know, like some old lady who has her mobility scooter stolen and can't afford a new one - that sort of thing. Or open an animal shelter that uses alternative medicine and never euthanises any animal that's not in pain. I'd find something.

I think you're so clever with these collages. Wish I had your talent with them.
