1. It's October so let's get this out there first thing...have you jumped on the all-things-pumpkin bandwagon? How so? I have not jumped on the "all-things-pumpkin" bandwagon. All I've done, so far, is purchase 4 pumpkins for carving. We were going to do that this past weekend, but we decided to wait and see what the weather held for us.
2. "We have more power than will; and it is often by way of excuse to ourselves that we fancy things are impossible." Francois Duc De la Rochefoucauld
What's something you once thought impossible, but in hindsight see as more a matter of lack of will?
Just about everything I don't want to do. Ha!
3. The rose is America's National Flower, but every state also has its own (click hereto see the list). Are you happy with yours? It's ok. If you were in charge what would you declare your state's flower? The daisy, of course. If you're outside the U.S. what bloom would you like to see labeled as your country's national flower?
|The state flower of SC: the Yellow Jessamine|
4. What have you lost interest in recently? I lose interest in so many things these days that I'm going to say- just about everything that I used to find important or fun or interesting. None of it is.
5. In your opinion, who's the best living musician? Geez, there are so many great ones that it's difficult to narrow it down to one. The most transformative music, to me, is classical. With that in mind, two of my favorite musicians are, Yo Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman. Can you imagine being at this concert? Go to about 4 minutes in and listen to the pure tones they get from their instruments. Talk about a spiritual experience. Are they the best? I don't know. But they're damn fine.
6. S'mores-love 'em or no? LOVE them, don't eat them. Ever make them indoors? Of course. Last time you sat around an outdoor fire? Last oyster roast season. Are making s'mores and sitting round a fire pit on your autumn bucket list? Nope. Do you have an autumn bucket list? Nope. But, if I did still eat those delightful S'mores, I'd try this:
7. Your favorite small town? I haven't found a favorite one yet. I have to wonder if my favorite small town exists only in the movies. Sigh. I'm pretty darn sure it's up north somewhere. Or in Alaska. Maybe even in the Midwest. When I was a kid, I LOVED Helen, GA and Gatlinburg, TN. Now, I'm sure I'd find them both too touristy.
8. Insert your own random thought here. Most of my thoughts are with those whose homes are under water. Disruption like this is difficult at best. As they are known to do, most people in the area are reaching out and lending a helping hand to their neighbors and to strangers as well. Hoping for some normalcy soon.
In the Columbia area:
Have a great rest of the week, y'all!
