Week two is already upon us and Cee has come up with some fun questions to respond to so I say let’s get right to it.
Question: What is your favorite color?
Answer: Purple. I’m not sure why exactly but in giving it some thought and research it seems pretty fitting for me. It’s the color of the 7th Chakra which is known as the Crown Chakra – spirituality, strength, passion, and a sense of oneness in the world. I’m always looking for the connections with people, the earth, myself, my thoughts so it’s fitting that it’s my favorite. And besides it looks great on just about everyone don’t you think?
Question: Favorite thing to photograph? Write? Or Cook?
Answer: My favorite thing to photograph is nature followed closely by people – generally people I don’t even know. I love to capture the nuances in both, what a line in someone’s face signifies or the rings of a tree. I find it fascinating. I love to write anything and everything – plain old journaling, poetry, short stories. As for cooking, I love trying new things from other cultures. Sushi making, check. Hand rolled pasta, check. You name it and I’m willing to give it a try but, and that’s a big BUT I don’t like to do it alone. I love cooking with my husband, my son, my friends.
Question: Name two of your best personality traits.
Answer: I’d have to go with my sense of wonder and my loyalty to family and friends.
Question: What word or words are fun for you to say?
Answer: Spaghetti which I always pronounce as sketti and Napkin which I always tend to leave the p out of if we’re being literal. I also have a lot of fun with words in general. Joey is just learning his letters and so he’s always trying to spell words that make no sense. On the way to school he’ll say letters out loud and then ask me what word he spelled. Usually it’s something like PTEEROS and I’ll respond that isn’t a word but just letters he’s strung together. This is almost always followed by his request for me to sound it out anyway and when I do he always says, “See Mom, it is a word.” Don’t even get me started on the definitions we come up with for some of his words or you won’t be able to stop laughing. For example did you know that PTEEROS means a purple and orange dinosaur that wears footed pajama’s? See you learn something knew every day.
Now how about you… how would you answer these questions?
