Live the questions...

I copied these questions from http://butterfly%20dreamer/

It gives one a few things to ponder.
"Be open with whatever comes next." by John Cage
Could you do this? Be open with whatever comes next... I think in life we have to be open to all sorts of changes or else we would get stagnant, grow old and die.

What do you think is sexy? Is it physical or a state of mind?
Is is more important to be sexy or feel sexy?
Is it really that easy to define or explain?

It is a state of mind! In my younger days I did not know that I was even pretty,
but as I have grown up, I find confidence sexy.
Of course a pretty smile helps too !
And laughter is very sexy to me!


If not, WHY?
Fear of failure stops me dead in my tracks.
not anymore!

Do you judge others by how they look?

NO, I try to see past the wrapping and see the heart of the person.

Do you assume you know what she is like?

You know what they say about assume? When you assume, you make an ASS out of U and ME.

Could you be friends with her?
ABSOLUTELY! I like all kinds of people. Celebrate the differences!

Can you allow yourself to be different?
What can I say?I am different...

Take a chance and color outside the lines.

You might like it?
It is ok to be yourself!
Really OK
what were your dreams as a child? Are you living them? If not, WHY?
I wanted to be a mailman or a milk man.

JUST anything but a secretary. I wanted to be outdoors.
I became a florist and owned my own flower shop. Check one dream come true.

Do you believe that all life is sacred and beautiful?

All life is a gift and we are to manage it well.

Don't all people deserve clean water, food, medicine, and shelter?
Why do you think the world has not achieved this? Yes, people deserve all of the above and more. Greed overcomes good too often. Selfishness. Ignorance. Maybe if we put others needs ahead of our own, more might be attained.

DO you think there is good and bad in each of us? Is anything really black or white or just shades of gray?

Is it important for you to acknowledge that part of ourselves?

I think it is the human condition to have good and bad in us. We struggle with it daily. No one is perfect except the ONE that made us. Yes, there are some gray areas, but I feel that is each person dilemma. We are fooling ourselves if we do not acknowledge this part of ourselves. Can't live in denial, so just accept the TRUTH.

Own it now.

WHO do you believe in? Yourself, God, reincarnation, or other people? For me, I believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, maker of heaven and earth. I respect other's believes as well.

WHAT inspires you? What inspires you to create?
The beauty of NATURE inspires me, the cry of a newborn baby inspires me, the sun reflecting off the water inspires me, little children inspire me, dreams and hopes inspire me, white puffy clouds inspire me, as well as butterflies. Life inspires me!
The desire to create is innate. I was born with this gift. It comes from God. My challenge is to use that creative gift to bring honor to Him.
HEROES...Who are my heroes? My mentors? Why?
Anyone that serves our country is my hero. Soldiers, firefighters, policemen, missionaries,
I hope I have not left anyone out.

My Grandparents were my heroes. They took care of me and loved me unconditionally.
WHAT makes you think? REALLY THINK?
What are your unanswered questions?
I don't think I have any unanswered questions at this point in my life.
If I don't know I will have to get back to you on that!
Is love the most important thing there is? If so, only romantic love or any love?
"Love is all we have"
Love can change the face of the world.
I know that I am a dreamer.
Do you think other generations had more fun or
had it better than this one and if so, why?
I liked the war years. It seemed like all abandon was thrown to the wind.
I have an eighty-eight year old friend and I love to hear her talk about that era.
What gives you bliss?
It does not take much to make me really happy.
In my youth, it might have been a romantic kiss with my husband.
Something that just makes me go awh...Do I have to explain it to you?
Definition from wikipedia ...
"Bliss can be a state of profound spiritual satisfaction, happiness or joy, often associated with religious ideas of the afterlife.
