Are you a traveler or a homebody?

The irony is that I’m perfectly balanced between the two.  In my normal life I’m much happier at home – I don’t feel the need to hit parties every weekend, and short jaunts out of town aren’t typically my thing.  But I truly love to travel.  I enjoy the vacations that involve days of reading and relaxation, and I like the ones where we drop into another culture for a week.  Stamps in my passport are one of my favorite things to collect.

What kind of TV commercial would you like to make?  Describe it.

I’d like to start a campaign for human rights – not tied to a political party or particular event, just something to kick off a movement that recognizes universal human needs.

There would be a rainbow of people – all colors, all ages, all abilities and disabilities – gathered in a large park.  Groups would be intermingling, talking, sharing food and water and clothes.  Some would be praying, others playing, but overall there would be a sense of togetherness.  Not sameness, but oneness.  Our children need the same things as other kids around the world; our elderly do, too.  My commercial would be a call to see ourselves in those we consider “others.”

Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name.


List some fun things for a rainy day.

Writing.  Coloring in my mandala book.  Reading a great novel.  Taking naps.  Baking.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week we were blessed to have the chance to visit BrightSide’s parents.  His sister and her husband came, too, so it was a weekend of family time.  I loved watching my kids playing with their aunt and uncle, and it was great to have a chance to visit with everyone.

This week I’m hoping to catch up before Bear and I leave for her field trip to DC.  My battle plan is to get lots of sleep and pamper myself a little before tackling that crazy long bus ride.
