Question time from our friend Rory:
Check it out here and while you’re at it, have a browse through his blog.
- How spontaneous are you?
Not as much as I used to be, but a classic example of how much can be found here
- How flirtatious would you say you are and if that is not the word you would use then try the alternatives of ‘teasing or playful’ either way – how much are you of this?
I’ve had my moments I suppose, but to be honest, it’s a word that doesn’t apply to me these days. Besides, Hubby knows me so well!
- How serious are you as a person?
It depends on the situation. I am usually relaxed and easy going, but on our wedding day, my Mum and Dad commented that they had never seen me so serious. That was because I meant every word I said in front of the Registrar.
- Do you think the older we become certain emotions are easier to handle – say as an example ‘grief?’
IMO grief will never become easier, it is different in all cases for us as individuals, no matter how old you are. However, temper, anger, and wearing your heart on your sleeve can be modified as we age and learn about ourselves and other people.
- What is the most adventurous thing you have done to date?
Gone to NZ to see Bro on my own in 2010
- What’s the craziest or riskiest thing you have ever done and simply got away with it or gotten caught doing it?
‘Borrowed’ a flashing warning lantern off a roadworks sign (not one that would lead to an accident or personal injury) with my first husband. He put it up in the roof and three years later, it still worked. We never put it back.
- What do you think the future is of dating and other ‘other’ now that social distancing has become part of your life?
Obviously I’m not interested, nor would I be if I found myself on my own, but the way some people deliberately mislead their audience makes the whole idea extremely delicate and risky IMO. Apps and virtual meeting places would probably be the way to go which makes me think of the film Surrogates.
- How different do you really think you are to the next person – are you prim and proper, or straight laced and serious, wild and abandoned or rebellious and controversial?
I am Me. I am no better or worse than anyone else, just unique in my own space, so how other people see me is their interpretation.
- During this time of global concern how has your thinking changed with regards the planet, conservation, climate issues… or has it not changed one little bit?
Greed and ignorance is killing our planet, but the proposed remedies are as everything else, too little too late. With less traffic on the roads due to lockdowns and people working from home, comments have already been made about improvements in air quality. However, the idea of ‘all electric’ modes of transport isn’t practical and will lead to even more problems, but TPTB can’t see beyond the dollar signs.
- What ‘topical issues’ considered ‘taboo’ by society are you deeply passionate with and about to the point of doing something about it?
I’m passionate about cruelty to animals, child abuse and greed. What to do? Toughie.
- What’s more important and or is there a difference between ‘Friendship and Companionship’ and if so what is that difference?
Companionship is company to share time or interests. Friendship is similar but deeper.
- What is your passion with regards writing genres – (1) what is your chosen genre and (2) what is the genre you might like to write about but lack confidence to start?
I write about general stuff, ideas from word or photoprompts, and opinions. I’ve written some short stories all very much in my comfort zone or from my imagination.
I can do humour or romance and I can be serious, but above all, I try to be honest.
