Welcome to "Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 51"! You can find the fill-ins here and at 15andmeowing.com each Thursday, allowing you time to contemplate and fill-in. Please come back on Friday, to link up and share. The first two fill-ins are provided by my co-host, Ellen. The final two statements are offered by myself.
The A-Z Challenge is almost over. *whew* It was interesting. I think it helped me with some writing discipline. It helped me sort some things out. It will seem odd to go back to “normal” blogging and writing. I hope that I can continue my focus on discipline. In the coming months, I plan to use some ideas that came to me in moments of inspired clarity. Thanks for being a part of my journey.
As April showers bring May flowers, I wish you all beautiful weather in which to make memories. I also wish you plenty of time to have fun!
The fill-ins are thought-provoking this week. I look forward to your answers.
1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is The Stranger in the Woods, by Michael Finkel. This is an amazing book about a man who walks away from the world to live alone in the woods. Finkel discusses issues (such as autism) that could cause someone to choose this isolated lifestyle. For nearly thirty years Christopher Knight survived by stealing only what he needed from the nearby community. This is his story, but also theirs.
2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say “Be the change you want to see!” I think this billboard would cover a wide array of people and issues. If each of us took positive action to actually change the things we feel are wrong, then we could and would make a real, tangible “safe place” for everyone. We could call it “Earth”.
3. I have a hard time with people who care only when it is convenient or conducive to their own agenda. I find them insincere and untrustworthy. Just be honest; that is easier to respect.
4. I really enjoy watching Bill play (lead) guitar. Forty years ago, when we first met, he was playing his guitar. I was amazed; and to be honest, I still am! He has extraordinary creativity and skill. He can read music, but he can also easily pick up what he hears. I am in awe of his talent and his gift of music. I am thankful that he shares it, too.
