Time

september 15 2009




1. Are you a Rolex watch, a Mickey Mouse watch, or a pocket watch?

A pocket watch.
Nice, warm and only surfacing when it's really important.

2. Can you think of a time when you couldn't see the forest for the trees?

Not really.
I'm quite an analytical person, but always in the context of a greater composition.

3. Can you think of a time when you were on the outside looking in?
What did you see?


In a way I'm always a bit at the outside.
I don't mind reflecting on things.
When I'm not at the outside, I'm trying to get a different perspective from the usual one.

What I see is humanity divided into groups.
Some are so very concerned about money and keeping on top of everything, economy, religion, politics.
It makes me feel OK to have the feeling of being at the outside.
I can easily turn around and see those who struggle to stay alive, those who suffer from the hardships of having no money, no high position in society. I can see those who want to respect the earth and other people.
As a writer I'm the one who needs to translate between these groups.
I can see how the rich are unwilling to share, that those who want to march into battle don't care to work on the fields....

4. Go back in time. Maybe a long time ago, maybe today. Pick an hour you'd like to freeze frame forever and tell us why. It doesn't have to be THE most important hour of your life, but make it a good one.

Sitting on the coach with good friends. Sipping coffee. Forgetting time moves on.

5. If you were a cuckoo clock, what would others say about you?

Haha!! My cuckoo clocks always got so many comments. Ugh!
As a cuckoo in a clock I can't shut up though.

6. Can you think of a time when time stood still?

Yes, when I had my dead girl in my arms.

7. Watch this! You are a stopwatch. What would you stop?

Not what, but who.
I'd stop all those people who are too stupid to have a well informed opinion, so others can discuss making this world better between themselves.

8. Imagine you were just born and have infinite wisdom. After the doctor smacks your newborn dust ruffle you look around and say to the Universe: "Give me a whole lifetime to do "this" and I will bless the day I was born."
What did you choose?


Well, as I don't have infinite wisdom I don't know.

I've chosen to be one of the people standing up for the rights of autistic people.

But I would rather stand up and teach the world that peace starts within each and every person, and we all have our own responsibility we really should take.
Too many people just march to the orders of others and to the needs of society.

This month is filled with remembrances of WW2. Operation Market Garden is remembered.
So many people lost their lives to end a war started by a few who wanted it all and who ordered others to kill for their own foolish beliefs that a certain kind of people is better.

When I would be able to make everyone clear that it's the individual responsibility of each and every person to make each day peaceful, I would bless the day I was born.
