This was a challenge for me, since I tend to be one of those annoying people that states, "Oh, I love this or I love that." That being said, I did my best to narrow it down by attaching it with a treasured memory.
Stir of Echoes
This was a movie that from the begining struck a cord with me. The main character, Tom Witzky, played by Kevin Bacon had all the traits I love in a character. He was down-to-earth, protective of his family, ignorant of his talents and nowhere near prepared for a mysterious dead girl haunting him. This was a mystery through and through and I was suspended until the very end. I put it as my first favorite, because at the time I saw this, I was reading several Dean Koontz books and it inspired me to create. Have you seen this movie? Did you like it? Did you think it was scary?
This was a tough one for me. I love all types of music. I had the unfortunate experience of dating a jerk in high school that tried to dictate the type of music I listened to or even purchased (true story). Anyway, I learned early on to voice my opinion and in doing so, I found I had quite an eclectic taste. In short, I'm a lover of all music. I chose Foo Fighters because they are authentic, they've rocked for decades and I LOVE this video.
I adore Jane Austen and marvel at her works. She created timeless tales, but also published them during a time that was almost impossible for a woman to do so. What I loved about this book was our heroine, Anne Elliot. She refuses her first love, young Frederick Wentworth, mainly because he has no title, little money and her family disapproves. Many years later, Wentworth returns after touring with the Royal Navy as a rich, single Captain. And with a substantial fortune, he begins searching for a wife. The best part of this book is Ann's colossal mistake. Having been persuaded by her family the first time, does she have the strength to endure the likes of Captain Wentworth again? Have you read this one? Do you like Jane Austen or are you tired of her?
This might sound ludicrous, but my first love was when I was four. My mother used to drop me off at daycare where I'd cry incessantly. A boy in my class, David--a name I'll never forget--befriended me so I wouldn't cry any more. He was like an angel to me back then. From that moment on, we were inseparable until a year later when I moved. After all these years, I still remember David's kindness and above all his friendship.
What about you? Any first loves you'd like to share?
