Glad to hear from you. You know, I waffled with blowing off the shopping day because I couldn't do it perfectly (find 12 cards I like, Ha!)
Instead, I pulled into a drugstore, found a really funny card for my friend who's going to have surgery and another blank one that could work for some other folks, and even though it wasn't perfect (which I always want to be), I felt so much better!
Now I"m going to make a note to myself to take some time to go and get a set of blank note cards (so it's more reasonable too!) and send out more note cards next week.
But doing a little really made me feel so much better. Guess that's the lesson of the day.
Because they have such beautiful hearts and are so kind and graciously allow us to see ourselves to such a large degree.
oops, must add dolphins, because they are so brilliant, and exuberantly joyful.
My favorite domestic animal is (if you choose dog be specific with breed etc):
Bichon Frise, they are joyful, intelligent, and completely unconcerned about how you feel about them, except to the extent it affects their groceries. They have enormous self esteem, and keep going for what they want no matter what!
yes, see above
A famous Chef will prepare anything you want. What do you order:
What ever is fresh for the day in the city we are in (except no wheat shellfish or pork)
Because while I have "Favorite meals" I think fresh food is the best and if a famous chef is at the helm, that person would be able to make something far beyond my programmed "favorites", (assuming the chef takes into account my allergies per above which would just make the meal more creative) SO basically, I think almost all food is delicious (even the ones I don't eat per above) and in the hands of a gifted food artist, I would want that creativity to run free and not be impinged.
Five people either dead or alive you would have at your fantasy dinner party::
Ok, I'm not sure I would want to eat, I'd just want to listen. Let's see: Pythagoras, Mahatma Ghandi, Sojourner Truth, William Shakespeare, Rumi.
If a pilot would fly you anywhere you want, you would go to:
Bali please. Tropical beauty meets art in all aspects of life and a society that views all things that happen to them as something they are responsible for, good and bad. Bali please.
My perfect slice of pizza is:
You are at a bar. You order this drink:
Mineral water with lime.
I can't drink anymore because I feel sick (I'm not an alcoholic, just couldn't take it anymore after age 45). I used to love margaritas or gin and tonics.
You are at a coffee shop. What coffee or tea do you order:
Medium latte no foam.
If a genie could grant you three wishes they would be (separate by commas):
Freedom from suffering to all beings, peace for all beings, happiness for all beings.
You are going on a long road trip and you can only bring three CD's. Which ones do you bring
(separate by commas):
Toni Childs Ocean, Leonard Cohen 10 Songs, Vivaldi's 4 Seasons*
This is a HARD question, subject to change please.
If I could do anything for my neighborhood today, it would be:
Add a train down the middle of the 405.
Have timely and adequate public transportation throughout the city.
Add dedicated bikes lines the entire lengths of Olympic, Pico and Santa Monica Avenues.
A sunset I remember:
In Austin Texas at The Oasis. Pretty spectacular on a regular basis.
Any character I could be from a movie, TV show or book would be:
Jane Eyre...nope, I was Jane Eyre, erm...Pee Wee from Pee Wee's Big adventure, that was a fun adventure.
Well, I can't think of any one I'd really like to be that was a fictional character so why not someone who was having lots of silly fun!
I love silly fun.
