A Week Of Questions.

Grannymar had posted these questions with her own answers and I thought that I should do the same in my blog as it certainly helps with one more topic to post!

What is the best part of being a blogger, writer and/or photographer?
Keeps me out of mischief.

When you are reminiscing with friends, what is your favourite story to tell?
The one that appears in my mind within the context of the discussion.

What is your favourite place in the world?
My comfort zone. My home with all the conveniences that have been provided for me.

When you are looking for inspiration where do you search?
I depend on my intuition.

Are you a morning person, a night owl or somewhere in between?
I am at my best in the mornings.

What animal best represents your personality?
Alley cat.

What is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to you?
An entire 1305 word letter from my brother which concluded with; “Ramana my dearest brother, all I can say is that no matter how much money I was offered, I could not have performed what you did for my father. All I can say, is thank you my brother, and probably wrongly, on behalf of my father, may I thank you, I know that he never did, but I am doing so on his behalf. You and your son, and your now departed wife are superhuman, otherwise you could not have done what you three did. God Bless you and keep you. I believe that you will, some day be rewarded for your efforts.”

    1. If you do remember, please share again here. I am quite intrigued what it could be. Why I chose it is because I had read somewhere that an alley cat lives the perfect life, eating what it can where it can get food and taking its pleasure where and when it can without worrying about tomorrow.

  1. The nicest thing anyone ever said to me took seven words, “You’re perfect just the way you are.” My mother said that one day when I was an adult. A few years later when I was nursing her as she was dying she also said, “Oh, I do truly love you!” That’s enough to keep one going for a lifetime.

    At a party for those of us who took an early retirement package my division leader came up and said, “We’re going to miss you, Jean.” I was touched that he was trying to be nice, so I started to answer graciously. He said, “No!” He looked me in the eye and slowly said, “We’re going to miss you, Jean.” This was the fellow I had good-naturedly pestered over the years — all for good causes, mostly for the way he treated people. He liked to intimidate people, so I’m guessing he liked people who weren’t cowed by him. Anyway, he knew how to deliver a compliment and not let it be brushed off. Thanks for bringing up some great memories.

  2. Dear Thomas O’Malley (my favourite alley cat), I think you are spot on there. Though you might have to fight (or share) your territory with amiable Shackman.

    Your question what animal would represent one best had me thinking. I don’t know. I am most certainly not a snail. Or a dog – though am loyal to a fault.

    Can’t say I am fond of heights. Yet identify with those majestic birds like the eagle or the more modest buzzard soaring in the sky. Preferably above a rugged landscape or cruising over one of my beloved meadows. Actually, Ramana, writing those words I have just realized something. What would an eagle do without its sharp eyes?

  3. This post has all the elements of a great story. Humour (“Keeps me out of mischief”), Intrigue (What does that alley cat get up to?), inspiration (Intuition.) and gratitude and love (your dedication and your brother’s letter.)
