Sunshine Blogger Award Border

My answers for the questions from my nominator:

1.) What is your best childhood memory?

It would definitely be having a holiday dinner at my Aunt Judy’s house with all the family and friends there.

2.) If you could learn a language, which one would it be?

Irish–which is a language I am struggling to learn!

3.) If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be?

A photo of my wife and I; a volume of the complete works of Shakespeare; my writing journal; a pen my parents gave me as a graduation gift from college; and the cast iron frying pan that had been my mother’s.

4.) Who do you most admire in life?

Since I am uncertain if this means a person living or in death, I will go with J.F.K.

5.) Scuba Diving or Sky Diving?

This one is easy–I hate flying and love the water, so scuba diving!

6.) Do you have an embarrassing moment you have never told anyone else, if so what is it?

No, I don’t.

7.) What age do you feel right now and why?

That is a very good question–I am 60, but I feel like I am in my late 40s. Except for some aches and pains, I can still do more work now than I did in my 30s.

8.) If you could live in a movie or TV show, what one would it be?

The original Star Trek.

9.) If you could see one person in the world the last minute of your life, who would it be and why?

My wife. The answer is love.

10.) Comedy or Drama?

Drama.

11.) If you could speak to everyone in the world at the same time, what would you say?

Try to recognize the value of all people, try to understand the need for acceptance of diversity in all its variations, and work for human justice.
