Food 4 Thought Friday

march 20 2009

If your job made you move, but you could choose which country you would be living in, which country would you choose and why?

Well, anyone who knows me knows that I would love to move to Scotland..RIGHT NOW!
I grew up in a time when there was real freedom and the future was a good promise.
People were positive and they believed other people where essentially good.
Because of that people felt respected and respected others.

Now I feel there's more talking about freedom, especially freedom of speech, only as an excuse to invade the freedom of others and limit it. I'm fed up with politicians that have no decency and show no politeness at all and are admired just because they say it's freedom of speech.
It leads to ridiculous situations that americans are financially supporting the political activities of an intolerant and discriminating politician here. I don't understand that, because the yelled murder when there was even a thought of non-americans supporting the campaign of usa politicians.)

I don't like the way everything about people is registered. Even small children have to live up to standards some people have created from behind a desk, and when they're not exactly living up to those standards this will be filed and it will hunt them all their lives.

Children need to play, because play itself provides all the stimulus for development.
I'm not talking about the prepared plays at toddlercare, but at free play of a little child at home and in nature.
I also firmly believe moms are not for planting kids on the earth alone, but are also the persons who can give a child the basic feelings of security, being loves unconditionally and all that.

Apart from that I do believe that motherhood is as good a job as any other and I'm fed up by younger people who tell me it's time I should contribute to society by working in a real job.
(Well, I guess their lack of a good childhood role model and mom made them underestimate the important role of mothers on society.
I don't think there would be as much criminal and almost criminal behaviour, not as much language problems and learning difficulties, etc etc, when the mothers would raise the children themselves, without being held responsible for giving their best to a job.)

I've never heard that jobs are the future of a society, but I do have heard that kids are the future.
Well, invest in them properly.

I don't feel at home in this society anymore.

My dream is to move to Scotland... or somewhere else, where I live far closer to nature, and I'm responsible for my own life, and where I can take that responsibility by developing my talents and work with nature to get bread and vegetables on the table.

My Scottish genes, the few I have, pull me to Scotland.
To the raw nature, to a place where I can use my bagpipes without disturbing a soul.

Do you have any phobias?

Real phobias...Don't know.
I hate spiders, and I think I hate snakes.

What is something you can't help but spend money on?

Haha... don't have money to spend, so I'm saved from the feeling that I can't help doing something I shouldn't do.

Midnight Snack
What profession/job did your parent(s) have while you were growing up?

My father worked in communication. He was one of the first 4 in my country who prepared for the computer era.
My mom worked as a seamstress and at a telephone company.

  1. I love your purple... !!!

    I wholeheartedly agree with all you said about motherhood and the disprect it endures. Women that birth children need to put that as a priority! Not let the government raise their offspring! You gave us all a lot to think about! THANKS!

    Great answers as always! Thanks for playing!

  2. I love Scotland - my sister married a Scottish guy 10 years ago, they live in Glasgow - it is amazingly beautiful. You are so right about the way society is going now - I can't even let my children go out and play alone in this neighborhood because of the number of homeless in this area.
