Hi Bloggers! Do you have to share a story or a short reflection tagged with the letter “M”? For example I’ve written about MANHATTAN (read below), about Madrid or Munich, modern times and mouths, Mexico and Montenegro, mothers and motorcycles, memories and musicians, milk or moon, military or mankind, minaretts and metronoms, Metropolis or Mursi people, mosques or the Mekong river etc. – I’m sure you’ll find an own story or a short reflection tagged with “M”! Feel free to add in the comments the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “M”!!!
John Dos Passos (1896-1970) has tried to compose an artwork built of the stuff: MANHATTAN, – and it works like a movie script – but written in a time (1925), in which the film industry did not yet have the tremendous technical and financially possibilities available as they owe today. I hope I will experience in my lifetime, that MANHATTAN TRANSFER once is a movie – read more at Manhattan Transfer
- Do you have a favorite movie? Which?
- Would you like to create an own cinema-movie / youtube video / TV-spot? Which?

I thought you were writing about the 1970s music group by the same name MANHATTAN TRANSFER!

Here is my link to my letter M = mandible
“The interesting part of this whole thing was that when I touched a feeler, his hind legs shot out and up and it was also in the meantime making a noise by opening and closing its MANDIBLES…”
you are RICH because you have the TIME to make a DIALOGUE with this little insect!
Lots of M’s in most any language so a good choice of letter. Looking through my extensive blog files I saw this old one that I posted early on. It’s about Willie Mays, my childhood hero and the best baseball player I have ever seen. Perhaps Joe DiMaggio was smoother and a better hitter. I only saw Di Maggio play a couple of times, and that was in the Old-Timer’s games – and each time he hit a home run… But Willie Mays is remembered to me the best and the finest of them all. An Ode to Willie Mays….http://bumbastories.wordpress.com/2010/12/14/an-ode/
I do play stories in my head. But I often get lost myself. Hehehehe. Love love this image, frizzz. It’s gonna be another memorable image. 😉

Hi Frizz, here is our M contribution this week at GatheringBooks: http://gatheringbooks.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/photo-journal-a-z-photo-challenge-m-is-for-magic/
I also thought that you were referring to the music group as I love Manhattan Transfer. 🙂
Alas, I have too many favorite movies, it depends on the genre, really. City of God though, hands down, is one of those personal favorites. La Vita E Bella also comes up there on top (Life is Beautiful).
yes, there are many nice words with M:
Myra, moon, magical, movies …

Do you have the whole day free since you ask me “Do you have a favorite movie and which..?” – many movies that have chiseled in my memory over time – and perpetrated irreparable pleasure for me… 😉
– In the early 1970s about 10-12 years old, never forgets these 2:
“Ditte Menneskebarn” (danish) and “Ordet” (danish)
Hello again. Thanks for the chance to share a post that I wrote just before spring this year, about the Mimosa trees and blossom in Portugal: http://juliedawnfox.com/2012/02/09/m-is-for-mimosa/

Good morning Frizz!
Here is my contribution to your Challenge and to your question about films…
thank you for your M-poetry!
“It was Midnight when the Mermaid Made off, Merrily, from the Mediterranean Sea…”
Beautiful image, Frizz! See you later 🙂
you’ve featured your MOTHER in a wonderful way …
Beautiful black and white photo. Is there someone who remember who taught you to ice skate, a teacher who guided you, a positive role model? My M is for mentor.
you are right: a MENTOR is important! I had some for swimming, guitar playing, taking photos, writing, loving …
Your were fortunate to have some wonderful mentors. I’ve been lucky too.
I’m lucky to say: I had a lot of mentors!
and me? I’m proud to say, that I
taught swimming to more than 1,000 little children …

and those that move.
I’m in one of these class… ‘hahaha’

Great story challenge. I love the photo you used.
M is for Mt. St. Helens! M is also for memoir, and here is what I was doing when Mt. St. Helens erupted.

Thank you for this article. I would also like to convey that it can possibly be hard if you find yourself in school and just starting out to establish a long credit history. There are many individuals who are only trying to endure and have a lengthy or favourable credit history is often a difficult issue to have.
