Share Your World – 2014 Week 15
For your blog do you basically use Windows or Mac, laptop, desktop, pad, or phone?
I use a laptop & I use it standing.
I hijacked the ‘breakfast bar’, which is perfect both in position & height.
It allows me more freedom of movement & encourages me to stretch & move while working.
I am also free to move between the lounge & kitchen areas, making it possible to continue working while I cook etc.
It also prolongs the life of the kettle, as I’m less likely to forget it’s on if it’s steaming just behind me.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a mystic of some kind with all sorts of magical powers.
I still want to be a mystic but I’m no longer interested in powers.
Life is so much more magical if you just leave it alone & go where it leads you.
Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
I grew up in London, but I was born into a Roman Catholic, Irish, immigrant family.
I didn’t get out much, so I may as well have been born in a tiny village somewhere.
Later though, in my teens I started to explore London on my own & I loved it.
It is an amazing city, where you can travel in time & space & can visit almost every culture on Earth in the space of an afternoon.
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
As a child I always wanted to get to 18 & stop.
I saw this as the ultimate age to be & believed that all 18 year olds were wise & beautiful.
Now, of course, I know different, so I’d like to get to around 35 & stop.
That way I’d have just about enough wisdom to be happy & just about enough youth to be beautiful & healthy.
Grateful for … Two bottles of wine, received from my employers as a Pesach (Passover) gift.
Looking forward to … A week off work.
