The "Sunday Scribblings" prompt for this week is "Spicy." In other words, what comes to mind when you hear that word.

The first...in fact, the only, image I see is of a beautiful Spanish flamenco dancer. Her skirts are twirling as she dances, and she is smiling coyly over her shoulder at some handsome male bystander. She is beautiful, desirable, and she knows she has this man in the palm of her hand. She is self-assured...confident...bold...unafraid to say what she thinks or feels. She can conquer the world if she wants to. Because of her confidence, everything she tries is a success. She doesn't know what it is to fail.

And wow....where did that come from? What an interesting response. Hmmmm....I'm thinking maybe I would like to be this woman.
Anyone out there teach flamenco?

I love it!!! That is a GREAT and really original take on the spicy theme. Excellent imagery, I think I ALSO want ot learn flamenco now.
I had NOTHING come to mind for that prompt. NOTHING! They usually post the next weeks prompt on fridays. I am looking forward to the next one, as my mind has run a bit dry lately, and need a bit of inspiration.

Isn't it just crazy how these things pop into your brain? Thanks for tipping me to check out SS for inspiration.
As for yourself....if you haven't already written a post on the subject, I'd love to know how your family/ancestors came to Australia. Did I pick up one time that your parents were from England?

Oh golly Kathleen, now you have me thinking. I might have to get back to you on that. I did do a project some 18 years ago for school on the matter, but the details are now fuzzy. I will have to gather some details from my Mum. We weren't convicts though...imagine that story hee hee.
