The wonderful BlackBowfin
invited his readers to take a shot at the questions he asked, and I found myself strangely compelled to try and answer. Some of these questions really hit home, and I wanted to give it a try. Scott, I hope you don't mind me mentioning you. And, for those who haven't read any of Scott's works, with all my heart, I recommend you go and plunge yourselves into his writing. Here's his sweet take at the questions he was tagged in:
I'm IT ....and so are you!Ok, I'm a bit hit-or-miss when it comes to tagging/being tagged. I had some time today and thought I should probably be a little more social than I've been in the last year or so. So, gliitchlord, here we go. BTW- thanks for the tag, bud.
1. when you are at rest how would you describe the curvature of your spine
Imaginary and technically unsure.
2. if the world ended tomorrow how many unused pens would spend eternity left on your desk
Assuming that this end doesn't originate from my desk, I'd say- all pens ever. Pens are exclusively for grocery lists and greeting cards. I guess I do fill out a greeting card, every now n then. So, most pens ever. I'm more of a mechanical pencil and keyboard kinda guy.
3. last time you went to the movies, how many attractive people did you notice in the crowd
The one seated on the other side of my daughter.
4. did any of them seem to make eye contact with you
More than once, probably.
5. you just told a joke an the peopl
So let's give this a go!1. Do you ever feel like you've walked this Earth before or are currently walking it in more than one body? Explain.
I feel like I've been here far too many times, and very often this makes me feel tired and unable to muster up the energy to do anything. If there be some chain of incarnations, I'd like this life on Earth
to be my last, or at least I'd like to learn to live with this weight of being here for too long.2. Do you have a pet and to what depth do you think their feelings run?
I don't have any pets. If I owned a dog, it would probably be very sad next to me, and if it was a cat, I think we may get along well. (Not sure if the cat wouldn't dislike me to some extent, though...)3. Who is the person who made the biggest difference in your life?
There are several such men for me. In some way, they are like landmarks, or they even became parts of the foundation that I have built myself upon. The one who has influenced my life the most so
far is my mentor, my astrology professor, a very dear and beloved friend. But alas, at the end of the day, the only person who can make the greatest difference in our lives is the one we see when we
look in the mirror.4. All personalities aside, what 3 professional roles or occupations do you feel most benefit humanity, through the work they do (and why)?
Hm... Doctors, artists, and workers of the Craft. In a sense, all three are healers, doctors being the most obvious representation of this from the side of Science. Artists (be it musicians, painters,
sculptors), because I believe in the healing properties of Art and artistic expression. And when I say workers of the Craft, I mean astrologers, Tarot readers, those who practice Magic to help others, etc.
It is my honest belief that these people can help us through painful periods, help us shed light on the dark corners of our lives, help us see things more clearly. They connect Art and Science in their
work.5. Are you happy in your own skin? (Why/why not?)
There are days of utter delight it in, but still I find myself squirming uncomfortably more often that I'd like to. Sometimes I wish I was put together differently.6. Who would you rather be? (Why/why not?)
Well... I wouldn't exactly like to be someone else, despite not being terribly overjoyed by being me. It'd be nice if I could be a better me, a person of stronger character who doesn't feel her life coming
down to just enduring whatever comes her way. That's what I aspire and work towards. Why? Because life should be something more than survival. And we're not meant to be anything else but the
best person we can possibly be.7. No music... What sounds settle your spirit?
The sound of birds. The sound of the wind. The sound of flowing water, or the waves of the sea. Honest laughter.8. What is the most beautiful geographic landscape you've ever seen (and why)?
So far, the most beautiful I've seen are the snowy forests of mountain Tara in Serbia. I've seen them a very long time ago, so the image is a little faded in my memory. The calm whiteness and the
sound of the wind that brings to mind an avalanche rolling over the mountains in the distance, made me, a child back then, feel like I'm in a temple of some sort, dedicated to nothing but the relentless
power of Mother Earth. Power, softened with kindness and calm. But... The most beautiful landscapes have been the ones I've seen in my dreams.9. What are you afraid of?
I'm afraid of staying frightened and never learning to live my life with bravery.10. What is the most beautiful thing you can imagine someone saying to you (ever)?
I've never really thought about that... But... I think it could be anything, as long as there is honesty and love in the eyes of the speaker, whatever it is they're speaking of. If it's supposed to be
something about me... Again, it doesn't really matter what is said, but that intensity of feelings, the aura people project when they speak with emotion and passion... That's the most beautiful thing I
can hear and listen to. Someone's heart, residing in every word that leaves their lips.
Jeez, I made it too long, didn't I? Without further ado, here are my questions to anyone who'd like to play:
1. Can you feel other people even if they're miles away?
2. If you were free to say anything you wanted to, what would you tell your father?
3. How much do you think your closest friend knows about you?
4. Do you believe in soulmates (if yes, have you found one, if no, why not)?
5. Do you think this world needs to be reset, or should it continue existing as it is? Explain.
6. Right now, where are you at in your life?
7. What is the most beautiful sight you've seen thus far (be it people, a landscape, a city, anything)?
8. What do you crave most in this moment?
9. Does the idea of eternal life appeal to you, or not? Why?
10. When you reach old age and look back on your life, what do you think would make you the happiest and fulfill you the most, and why?
I'd like to invite Dementhia93
and anyone else who'd like to try their hand and answer these.
Whoever you are, whatever you're doing, be well.
