Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist?
I used to consider myself an optimist for most of my life but the past five or six years I’ve become more of a pessimist. The stupid people seem to have the world in their grip and I sometimes feel the only way to outwit them is to die but of course, that’s probably just what they want.
Can War ever be just?
Probably not, sometimes we think we’re going to war for the right reasons, to defend our homes and families or protect weaker people; but who decides when we should go? Politicians; and they have their own agenda and the power and influence through the media to convince people to do what they want without necessarily telling the real reasons.
Think about the people you love most in your life, what do you do for them?
I would never let someone I love go without if I could help them. I wouldn’t let them struggle alone when I could support them.
Are you health conscious?
Am I health conscious? No, I try not to be excessive in what I eat but I don’t enjoy exercising. I like to walk but I never enjoyed playing sports and find repetitive exercises boring.
Gratitude, Thankfulness, Wonder, Awe and Joy!
I’m grateful for my pets, my garden and the creatures that visit it.
This is the space where you share, if you’d like to, something that falls into those categories.
I hear so many stories of people who are homeless, living in vans or sheds or renting houses that are so expensive they can barely manage. I am thankful that I have a home of my own.
