Being reactive my entire life.....so far, does not seem to get me anywhere but back to the starting line. It seems that every 10 years I am required to reinvent myself. This time I will turn up the volume on my inner voice and stop listening to the voices of those people that think they have my answeres.
I am so greatful to find a site like this, where I can keep myself focused and skip the junk and get on with doing what I need to do.
There are a lot of places I have never been. One of them is Mississippi. It was fun, when I was a little girl to learn to spell it. I have a friend that lived there and I want to go and see it for myself.
Any thoughts and advise for a northern girl that is thinking about traveling there?
Are there changing seasons there? Do they have winter? What would I do there in November for example?
I am looking for a new direction for my life. I have used more than 1/2 of my normal life span and it looks like I make the same mistakes over and over again. My relationships crash and burn. There must be lessons that I was supposed to learn along the way and I keep missing the clues.
A famous Chef will prepare anything you want. What do you order:
Something tender, moist, mild and flavourful. Creamy and rich. A chicken dish and pasta. There would be fresh fruits, beautiful and served with cheeses. There would be veggies with bright colors and savoury arromas.
I like comfort foods that leave me feeling like granmas home made dumplings, love and dads christmas dinners.
Five people either dead or alive you would have at your fantasy dinner party::
My cousin Ronnie
My friend Roxie
My friend Lynn
My young friend Dale
Ronnie, because I miss him so very much. He has been gone a year now and I miss his laugh, the way he was the center of every party and family gathering. The way he cared for everyone and was always ready for adventure. Lynn, because she saw the world through a different channel. Because she was strong, outspoken, funny, lovable and crazy. I miss her. I thought that when she died I would feel her spirit but I can't even remember her voice. My daughter, because she is beautiful, graceful, talanted, intelligent, brave, and loves me, most of the time. I want her near for ever and always. She is an old soul and fresh outlooks all at once. Roxie, because our friendship just flows so easily. Gaps of moments or of years do not change the connection between us. Shirley, because she is my counter balance. The ying and yang of my world. Because I look forward to time with her like with no one else. She accepts my weaknesses and flaws and ignores them. Because haveing friends from childhood is a rare thing. But my friend Yvonne would have to be there as well, because she is my backbone and my courage. She is my fun and my laughter. And because she would add so much sparkle to the party that it would be an event to find glory in.
If a pilot would fly you anywhere you want, you would go to:
Biloxi, to walk on the sand, to sit and watch the ocean from a new and uncluttered shore. Then I could get a car and drive my friend Marie back home and we would have a nice long road trip together.
You are at a bar. You order this drink:
Anisett and 7 up with a cherry and a long red straw. I always feel special when I drink that.
You are at a coffee shop. What coffee or tea do you order:
That is easy. I am Canadian. That would be Tim Hortons and it would be large triple triple.
If a genie could grant you three wishes they would be (separate by commas):
helth, wisdom, safety.
You are going on a long road trip and you can only bring three CD's. Which ones do you bring
(separate by commas):
Cher, Vivaldi, Brahms.
If I could do anything for my neighborhood today, it would be:
Remove the gossip from every converstion, and add happy laughter to every interaction.
A sunset I remember:
Viewed from my bedroom window. With all the color of the prairie at harvest time. Reds, purples, yellow, gold, blue. Taking a lifetime and a moment, changing and becoming more beautiful as dusk approached.
Any character I could be from a movie, TV show or book would be:
I don't think so.
The lives of the rich and famous seem more troubled than my own.
