List things or events that changed your life?
This is a strange question. I’ve lived 71 years. The number of events that have changed my world are … literally … countless. From learning to stand, to learning to read. To learning to love furry creatures, to discovering the woods and the sky.
Moving along and learning that I want to know everything. Discovering I’ll never be a math genius, but knowing I can write. Painting. Photography. What’s wrong with one marriage and what’s right with another.
Discovering quiet and being alone.
Recognizing that I can’t do the things I did, but I can do other things I never thought I could do. Life is a long pattern of discoveries and each changes your life. From tiny changes, like a new way to lace your shoes or brush your teeth, to realizing that you never will know “the meaning of life” unless you agree that 42 will do it for you.
Playing the piano. Struggling with guitar. Falling in love with computers.
All the books you read, all the thoughts they put in your head. All the things you write and the pictures you take. I don’t think there’s one single thing that changed my world. There were millions of things that changed it. And, with a little luck, there will be millions more yet to come.
Complete this sentence: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s…
What genre of music do you like?
I like music with melody, rhythm, and when possible, words I can remember. I don’t like rap or “hard rock” which to me just sounds like noise. To be fair, this isn’t recent. I always felt like that about it, even when I was a whole lot younger.
My favorite piece of music is Beethoven’s 6th Symphony, The Pastoral.
Second favorite (at the moment): Pancho and Lefty.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?
Finally getting antibiotics and discovering this morning I can breathe without making that hideous bubbling sound. This is a better morning!
