In a recent Facebook post, my dear friend, Fridley, shared a list of simple questions for folks to answer, thereby revealing a bit more about themselves to others. As he stated in his post, it’s time we took a break from all the dreadful news, had some fun, and got to know each other a little more.
It was a fun exercise, and reminded me of a book I purchased a couple of years ago entitled, Conversations by Blue Carreon. The book is a series of thought-provoking, fill-in-the-blank questionnaires completed by “icons of fashion, interior design, and art.” Since the Facebook post was fun, I thought I’d share the Conversations list of questions with all of you, and include my answers in the hope that you’ll take a stab at it, too, and we can all learn something more about each other. And you might even learn something new about yourself.
Just copy and paste in the comments section below, erase my answers, then add your own.
So, come on, let’s have a conversation.
When I wake up . . . I do a series of yoga stretches before getting out of bed.
Before I go to bed . . . I snuggle up, and then thank the Universe for my life.
A well-dressed woman . . . knows herself and dresses accordingly.
Women should always . . . respect themselves, first and foremost.
Men should never . . . underestimate or diminish a woman. It reduces them (men).
The best thing that’s been said about me . . . I’m a peacekeeper and young at heart.
The biggest misconception about me . . . (this one stumped me).
If I weren’t doing what I’m doing today . . . if I was still working and had the chance to do it over, I’m pretty sure I’d do something in art or art history. But honestly, I just want to keep on doing what I’m doing today!
My legacy . . . is TBD
A great idea . . . always reveals itself to you when the time is right.
Botox . . . is an individual choice.
My mother . . . was my best friend and taught me all the best things in life – like how to forgive, to trust that most people are good, to love and support your family, and to always believe that things will work out the way they’re supposed to so have a little faith.
The soundtrack of my life . . . “Magnificent Madness” by John Klemmer (seems fitting)
The future . . . is a little scary, still exciting, definitely creative, and mostly joyful.
Happiness . . . is a decision you make every day.
There’s a time and a place . . . for black walnut ice cream.
There is too much . . . anger and hate in the world.
In the end . . . only love matters.
Till next time,
