I have been putting off posting this week because I have no pictures to include. Getting out to take some isn’t working these days, and it seems getting to the computer to pull some out of archives isn’t working much better. Cee takes the time to put this challenge together, which I respect and appreciate, so rather than dawdle any longer I shall answer questions and not add photos this week and hope that soon I manage to capture one of those days that seem to take off and leave me behind.
1. You are given $5,000 and the chance to exchange it for one of two envelopes. One envelope contains $50,000 and one contains $500. Do you make the trade? Why or why not? I keep the $5000. Because I am certain I would exchange it for the one containing $500 and because a bird in hand is worth 2 in the bush. Then I would struggle to decide how to use the $5,000 because it would not be enough to cover many of the things I would like to do and probably chastise myself for not trying for the $50,000. Good thing this probably will never be reality, huh?
2. Do you believe in the afterlife? Reincarnation? No. Yes. I think I do. I know I used to, but it’s not something that I’ve given much thought to in more recent years, other than to make jokes about coming back as one of my pets. I believe many things are possible. I believe that we have not even scratched the surface of knowing what those things are.
3. If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film, or science fiction? It would depend on the day. Amazing how much would depend on the day, or the moment, isn’t it? I think it would have a bit of drama, some comedy, a touch of romantic-comedy in my younger years, a wee bit of action and a pinch of science fiction. It would have to be a bit of all of these – nothing is ever all black or all white, is it?
4. If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single public building or institution, which building would you choose? I’ve tossed this one around some. I thought about public transportation terminals (?) and museums of one kind or another, but those were not terribly satisfying responses. I did spend a night almost alone in Union Station in Chicago once several years ago. Talk about eerie! Suddenly, it hit me – a library! A big library with wi-fi. Yes! And a coffee machine. And some food. Wine. I have priorities you know.
So that’s it guys. Take me as I am, there are no photos this week.
