Today I'm taking part in Nicole Ducleroir's Bernard Pivot Blogfest. Here are my answers to ten questions.
What is your favorite word? Serendipity. I love the way it sounds when you say it and the dictionary definition matches it lovely sound; an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident.
What is your least favorite word? I can't even type it on here. It's a nasty nasty word.
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally. Open spaces. Beautiful sights of the planet and quietness.
What turns you off? Hate. It's a negative emotion that benefits no-one, and hurts the person carrying it.
What is your favorite curse word? Crap. Having children, I have to think about what I'm saying and if I am going to accidentally swear in front of them (for instance at the point of injury) I want it to be pretty low key.
What sound or noise do you love? My children laughing. It can cure all.
What sound or noise do you hate? The sound of fairgrounds - people screaming and jangling bells.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Volcanologist. I would love to go and work in an active volcano. I think the planet is an amazing place.
What profession would you not like to do? Accountant. I'm not a numbers person and sitting shuffling numbers all day would bore me to tears and give me a headache!
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Your loved ones that are already here are in that direction.
