- Was the last thing you read digital or print?
I have a couple of e-books on the go. I was reading “The Last Librarian” back in January but it was rather a depressing book so I put it aside during the bushfires and haven’t gone back to it yet. I read a very funny travel book and then started another e-book which also turned out to be rather serious so I put it on hold too. Recently I’ve only been reading blog posts and news articles. The last thing I read before this was a post from Mrs Angloswiss for a word prompt.
- Are you more an extrovert or introvert?
I am most definitely an introvert and I did not need the Myers Briggs test to tell me that although it did tell me what kind of an introvert I am, or at least what kind I was in the 1990’s when I had to do the test as part of a work training program.
- How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person?
I can honestly say that I did not imagine this part of my life at all. The future was shadowy. I didn’t imagine being a widow or having aches and pains. I didn’t start to think much about old age and what it would be like until David died. Apart from that, I guess my life is much like I thought it would be as I always knew that dreaming of lottery wins, world travel and big houses was an entertaining fantasy, not real life.
4. Do you think about dying? Does death scare you? Why or why not?
Yes, I do think about dying. We all die and realistically I’m nearer the end than the beginning of my life. Yes, it does scare me a bit. I don’t want to die in a hospital like David did. Perhaps I’m more afraid of the being ill and helpless part than the actual dying, although I hope it won’t hurt. I do wonder what comes after death as I’m not sure if I believe in heaven and hell. Not reincarnation I hope because I don’t know if I want to go round again.
Additional Gratitude Bonus Question: Who has been the kindest to you in your life?
I don’t measure how kind one person has been to me against another. I’ve been very fortunate to have always been surrounded by kindness. I have had it from (some) family members and many friends, especially in the past few years.
