It just seems to go on forever, doesn't it? More questions from you, my lovely readers, even though based on comments lately you've all but disappeared. Bitter much? Nah, not really. I'm not complaining, I'm just making observations - expanding your horizons is a sign of maturation. (And if you can name that reference, you win my everlasting awe.)
So Maggie asked:
If you could forsee a single day of your future in its entirety, what date would you select?
Tough call, honestly. I considered the day of my death, just so I could know how it ends. I also considered the birth of my first child, but how could I pick to see the birth of one of my children but not another? So I think I'd have to go with my wedding day.
I worry a lot about finding the man to share my life. I want to know who he is, where he is, whether I've met him yet or not, and how we'll begin our life together. I want to see who will still be there by my side, who will be wishing us well. I want to see what my face looks like when I look at him, and how he looks at me, and how others look at us together.
Plus, obviously, I want to see what I'm wearing.
She also asked:
If you could have been told one thing that you weren't told when you were a teenager, what would you like to have heard?
Life is precious and fleeting - don't take it for granted. There's been too much death around me in my life, and too many moments wasted because I didn't realize how quickly they could be gone. I'm much more appreciative of that stuff now, and I wish I could get some of that lost time back these days. I wish I had more to say on the subject, but really, that's all I have.
Hug your loved ones, folks. Hug them often.
The Kaiser asked:
What's your favorite quote from The Big Lebowski?
I think he was kidding, because he knows I hate that movie, but if he was expecting no answer, he's in for a surprise. The best - by which I mean "most useful" - line to me is, "Nothing is fucked here." I'm a big fan of that one. The other one that's good is, "Nobody fucks with the Jesus." That said? I still hate the movie.
Lastly, for those who don't normally frequent the photo blog, I answered a question from Little Spoon over there, simply because it seemed more pertinent to that blog. But you should go and read if you're interested in my self-portraits!
In the meantime, I'm curious: What day of your future would you most like to see?
