Writer's Block: The Meaning of Life

Describe your life in one sentence.
Forgetting what is behind, and straining forward to what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:13-14

Attention wardrobe consultants everywhere

David Boreanaz should always wear leather pants. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Writer's Block: Teenage dream

If you arrived at your front door and saw your first love standing there, what would you do or say?
"Does your wife know you're here?"*

*Please note the correct usage of "your" and "you're."

Writer's Block: Hit the road, Cupid

If you had the power, would you permanently eliminate Valentine's Day?
No. I don't see the harm in it. Yes, I usually spout off about not enjoying the day, but plenty of people do. So why not have a chance to get dressed up, have a nice meal, give your loved one something special?

I understand the arguments about it being crass commercialism and that we should demonstrate our love 365 days a year, but you could say the same thing about Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween - any of the major holidays. Valentine's Day is about what you bring to it, just like any other holiday. It doesn't have to be crassly commercialistic (yay, I invented a word!). I say, kiss your loved ones, tell them you love them, and do it again tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.*

*This opinion brought to you by a terminally single middle-aged woman who plans to spend Valentine's Day evening at home with her cats and TV.

Your Attention Please

I'm making this a public entry because I want the entire world to know what an absolute sweetheart inoue130 is. Thank you, darling! You are so thoughtful. I will scour that thing cover to cover. *hugs*

Writer's Block: Free your mind

Do you believe society will ever truly overcome racism?

Not until people stop talking about it and just do it.

Writer's Block: A real eye opener

Which one book should everyone read, and why?
The Color of Water by James McBride. It's a biography of his mother - a Jewish woman who left her home in Virginia to marry a black man and rear 8 mixed-race children in Harlem in the 1930s. When her first husband died, she married a friend of his and bore 4 more children.

It's an amazing story. This woman's courage and heart, to live where and how she did at the time, are inspiring. All 12 of her children went to college, and many went further than that. I can't praise this book highly enough - it's well-written, full of love and honesty, and you need to read it.
