Huguettes Questions (only honest answers are allowed  ) and my honest answers:

1 As a straight person, how you really think about gays / homosexuals. Without filters and fancy words. What if someone from same sex approached you?

I both work with those who are gays/ homosexuals and have them as acquaintances and as friends.

I love them so much.

I don’t mind if they approach me. I would say, hey, I still got it… 😉

2 You’ve been loved more or you loved more?

I met my husband when I turned 17 and we’re married and together yet, 26 years … so it is the same…

3 Do you think death is the end?

No, I don’t. I think «dead is just the beginning»…

because I am a medium and work a little bit as a clairvoyant and «clean» houses… yes, I talk with ghosts….and I am grateful…so I am who I am…

4 If God exists, and he is listening now and you know that: what would you ask him?

wow, I would have been ego and asked about my own future as a poet and artist and if I could get a super hero skill to transfer me to all you wonderful bloggers and given you a hug and said hello here I am and this is me…

5 Physical attraction is important to you? Not the most important, but is it important? And I know that the heart and soul are the most important; I really do but let’s be realistic here OK?

Yes, it is important to me. That’s why I have the world’s most handsome man😉❤️

6 General Manager in a big company or running your own business?

My own business…

7 What would you feel / do if you suddenly enter the room and found your partner in your bed with your best friend ? Or simply a friend? If you’re single, your future cheater partner then?

It will be good to take the big green plant beside my bed and use it on both and divorce and move and I will feel completely fucked and deceived and not good enough and inept and ugly and on and on an on…oh wow, it is my biggest nightmare… I hope I never will be a part of this….

8 What’s your favorite scent? Can be a fragrance or just a scent.

It is nature and the ocean and Norwegian fjords…

9A car ride or Harley ride?

A car ride… or… Harly- gosh… that is just a ride in my imagination…

Jessica’s questions:

Yes, on the University.

Do small things with great love.

3. What kind of fear have you overcome?

My spider fear

4 Ever experience to drown?

Yes.

5 When you heart and mind is in conflict, which wins?

Oh wow… sometimes my heart and sometimes my mind…

6 What kind of blog post you like to read?

I like to read different posts.

From heart and soul -honest-

from darkness to light- cop with life-

from real life and fiction – inspiration

poems and short stories – heartwrenching- painful- beautiful – feelings-

I love you all folks.

7 If you were an animal, what kind are you?

A panther….

8 Do you like spicy food?

Yes.

9 Age doesn’t matter to love. Agree or not? Why?

My heart says it doesn’t matter, my mind says it does… well, who wins this time…

Only those involved love each other and are honest, respectful, loyal and mean it seriously …. (don’t play with feelings)…

10 Your definition of true love?

True love is hard to describe, but easy to recognize. In other words; When you first encounter true love, you know with yourself that it is what you know. And when you doubt your feelings, it’s because they’re not real. This is certainly true in many cases. But it is not always the case. For the nature of love is not at all equal for everyone. On the contrary, everyone experiences it in its unique way.

It is difficult to define love and describe how love feels. We must distinguish between love and falling in love. Love is a much stronger feeling than falling in love and needs some time to come forward. Falling in love is something that you will experience several times in your life, but once many will experience a life-long love. Eventually, this love is transformed into something we call love.

Or, me and my husband = true love❤️ but, I need so many more pages to describe us on, so ..

Oh wow, I have to stop myself.. I love to philosophize…

Thank you again Jessica.

Take care.

No nominees or questions.

Then you gotta answer the questions that the person who nominated you asked.

Then you must nominate 5 people and ask them 10 questions.

//

Steve’s question and my answers:

1) What is your favorite color, second favorite?

Purple

2) What is your favorite food?

Souvlaki chicken

3) Would you prefer to swim in a pool, lake or ocean?

Ocean

4) Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because I think I was not alone about what I went through and what I experienced from childhood, and up to adulthood. Being able to reach someone with my writings, art and poems and small stories became important to me, and be able to tell you that you are not alone whatever part of the world you come from.

When I blogging I can feel deep in my soul that is a healing prosess too.

I still have to blog because it turned out I am not alone and there are many great people out there with a heart of gold and beautiful souls. I am motivated by all of you lovely souls and inspired. It is much love and we are caring for each other. Much of support and I am very grateful for all of you.

Blogging is like art to me, but I have to admit that I have changed myself during the year I have blogged and it is probably something you as a reader also notice on my blog that I am a poet and an artist.

5) Do you think you will continue blogging for a long time?

Yes.

6) Why did you start following my blog?

I love to grab a cup of coffee and relax with your words. I discovered that your posts made peace in my mind, and it still does, thank you. (otherwise I will refer to the intro of this post about you).

7) Did you find my blog by accident or was it from being mentioned on another blog?

ops, I don’t remember … so, Steve, do you remember? ehh, was it from another blogger, or I did I discover your comment on another blog and you stole my attention…

8) How much time do you spend blogging?

Oh, … sometimes several hours a day… sometimes I don’t have the time on a day and sometimes one to two hours a day….

9) Do you enjoy spending time outdoors?

YES.

10) Do you have a pet? What?

I have two dogs, one cat and a tank.

Thank you again Steve, I really appreciate it.

Take care folks.

And I’m sorry I break the rule and I don’t send it any further.

AZQCueu2- A to Z cue you too Society.

When I read this challenge on Monday morning from Simon, I thought who is this Rory… but he is a very wise and creative man……anyway and I felt like my breath was drawning, because I didn’t understand a letter with my norwegian brain….

(Text copied from Simon)

Below are the information and rules copied from Simons post as is and the topic is “Society”.

Oh well, it was a new challenge / game created by Rory

Each week, he will select a Random Topic from any genre for the game itself.

AZQCueU2 is a fast challenge game, meaning that when you tag someone it’s because you know they are online on a regular basis and not perhaps every few days, so a daily presence is required for the duration of the game to continue at a certain speed. This game was created for speed and ease, conveniency and efficiency.

Each week he will create a new AZQCueU2 Post with a New Game Topic and he shall begin the game with the first letter of the alphabet which is course and obviously.

To better understand I will quote Rory below:

A

I shall then find a quote on the selected topic where upon the quoter’s surname ends in A.

With my A quote firmly on display, l shall then tag one of my own readership and award them with the second letter of the alphabet ….

B

Their task is to find a quote on the topic from someone with a surname beginning with B, when they have completed the post, they too must tag one of their readership and award them the third letter of the alphabet …

C

This continues until the game stops due to an inability to find a surname beginning with the selected letter for the topic in question.

Only one Quote is required from each player.

The Letter X has been extracted from the alphabet we use.

The Quote used must be the Surname only, not the forename.

Should you create a post, all l would ask of you please is to provide a ping back to the link in game and also provide a manual ping back, so l don’t lose sight of the game itself, which as we all know with WP at present is sadly easily done.

Each newly created reader post, must contain all quotes created by the previous readers so that all newly tagged readers can see the alphabet running smoothly and there is no confusion.

Got it? Ok, this week topic is Society.

//

Rory took the letter A

“Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean,

man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives.

Man’s life is independent.

He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self too.”

Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar

//

Paula took B

“The paradox of education is precisely this – that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.”

James Baldwin

//

King Ben’s Grandma took C

“To me, the progress of society consists in nothing more than in bringing out the individual, in giving him a consciousness of his own being, and in quickening him to strengthen and elevate his own mind.”

WILLIAM E. CHANNING, Thoughts

//

Beckie took D

“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”

Frederick Douglass

//

Sadje took E

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Albert Einstein

//

Li took F

“It’s a very difficult era in which to be a person, just a real, actual person, instead of a collection of personality traits selected from an endless Automat of characters.”

Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

//

Jim took G

Galileo said, “In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.”

Galileo Galilei

//

Punam took H

“Racism is taught in our society, it is not automatic. It is learned behavior toward persons with dissimilar physical characteristics.”

Alex Haley

//

Fandango took I

“In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something else.”

Lee Iacocca

//

Ashley took J

“I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.”

Thomas Jefferson

//

Ribana took K

“Some men see things as they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were, and ask why not.”

Robert Kennedy

//

Huguette took L

“Many thousands of youth have been deprived of the benefit of education thereby, their morals ruined, and talents irretrievably lost to society, for want of cultivation: while two parties have been idly contending who should bestow it.”

Joseph Lancaster

//

Simon took M

He who reigns within himself and rules passions, desires, and fears is more than a king.

John Milton

//

Orkidedatter took N

Vi er alle oppdagelsesreisende i livet, hvilken vei vi så enn følger.
