Friday Flash 55.....

.


.
Last week while taking a nap,
Father Alberto dreamed he was the star of a Fellini movie.
Was it a dream?

Felliniesque:
1.) Referring to the style of Italian Director Federico Fellini.
It's become synonymous with extravagant, fanciful,
and even Baroque images in cinema and art.
2.) Dreams and reality are sometimes perceived as one experiance!

.

.
Yeah I know...I'm on an "esque" roll. (Pun Intended)
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man!
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!!
So from the most dreamlike host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!!

Hell - my last dream was filled with very dull looking snakes. I like your dream better. Maybe I can conjure up a little "esque next time. :)

My 55 is posted.

TALON said...

Does it qualify as a nap if you have time to dream Felliniesque dreams? ;) Father Alberto obviously has an awesome imagination! And I've enjoyed the 55-esques very much.

My 55 is up:

Speaking in Tongues

What is that blasted noise?

PattiKen said...

Geez. And I thought clerical blown-dry hair and manicured nails were bad. Funny one, G-Man.

I’m in with a moo-ving interview with Swallow.

Janna said...

Fellini sounds like it should be a type of pasta.
I'd like some fellini with marinara sauce, please.
Garlic bread would be nice too.

Thanks for another 55!
here's mine.

John's comments said...

It was never the priests I remembered from a Fellini movie! Here's my Friday 55. Hope your week goes well

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Hey, 'esque' all you want. This one is perfect again Mr. G!

Funny, I don't think I've ever seen that car before...Cheap!! [referring to your Thursday Portrait]

My 55 this week...LINK

Have a super Friday! And thanks for the welcome back from last week's comment.

Eric Alder said...

Loving the 'esque'-cargo, G-Man.

Since so many people were wondering about secrets (because of my recent post) here's one to chew on:
The Event

jabblog said...

No esque in mine either!
First time for ages but I've posted mine.

Eaton Bennett said...

You sir, have an extravagant imagination...thank goodness!!!

I'm playing 55 this week, have a great weekend, G-daddy.

hugs,
Eaton.

Eaton Bennett said...

A question...is anybody having trouble with bloger? Every time I put up a new post I can't preview or go to html or upload a pic without my font getting so large, when I post there is nothing in the post but the pic. Any clues as to what is going on?

regards,
Eaton.

MorningAJ said...

We'll have a new term soon - G-Manesque!
Cool 55. And I learned something too.

I'm having Second Thoughts here

the walking man said...

Father Alberto has seen too many movies. You on the other hand just keep on as you are.

Scott said...

Good morning, my friend! Father looks quite Fellini festooned to me :-) I love the photos you come up with!

I still don't know how to insert a "linky" with text in a comment so you'll have to just visit my blog: www.sobernuggets.blogspot.com by cutting and pasting lol.

drybottomgirl said...

Great picture! Isn't it fun to have lavish over the top dreams? It adds a kind of spice to an ordinary nights sleep! Mine is up and have a superesque weekend!

JStar said...

Nessa said...

As I clicked on the comment button there were already 55 comments. I thought "I should leave this for the G-Man."

But nah, that wouldn't be dreamy enough for you or 'esque enough. Some here i am with my bit of reality.

Happy kick-ass weekend G-man!

secret agent woman said...

Reminds me of a song from Hair: "Pretends he's Fellini and Antonioni and also his countryman Roman Polanski all rolled into one."
