Thank you http://ivonprefontaine.com/, Teacher as Transformer for nominating me for the Reality Award. It is my embarrassment it has taken me weeks to respond. Questions stump me. Too often I treat them as though they really matter. It makes life too serious. And then I got busy and whenever I saw it to complete I skipped by. And here all ivonprefontaine wanted to do was a good thing. So thank you, truly.
1. If you had the chance to change something what would you change?
I would change my ability to be more empathic with people and give them the support they truly need and want. Is this attribute lack ever so vaguely related to procrastination of this nomination?
2. If you could repeat an age, what age would it be: I don’t want to repeat an age. I should write a blog about this.
3. What one thing really scares you?
Anything bad happening to my son and his family. And second: I don’t want to be against personal choice and belief in this, but I am totally fearful of full head burqas that show only the eyes or sometimes not even the eyes are seen through a lacy veil. To me the face is an indication of whether I’m socially safe or not, and I feel very unsafe around hidden faces. I’m also not crazy about Halloween masks either, but at least that’s only one night.
4. What one dream have you not completed yet and do you think you will be able to complete it?
Easy answer is travel more. Deeper answer I would give up the travel for is to be able to pass along whatever wisdom I have accumulated to my granddaughters to give them more foresight and understanding as they grow into adults. I think I can accomplish some of it, but my real wish would be to open their heads and just pour in “good” stuff, not my problems, only the true wisdom that has nothing to do with me, but stands on its own as real in spite of me.
5. If you could be someone else for the day, who would you be?
I would be President Obama. I think experiencing close-up the strength and power such a position holds would broaden my thinking forever.
Like my example, I am hoping to spread the pleasure of the award. Below are a few of the blogs I enjoy.
Really, I gain, enjoy, learn, laugh, worry for blogger, from every blog I visit.
