Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. (Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud) Cheers to all of us thieves!



These are questions suggested by Markandangel



If you could instill one piece of advice in a newborn baby’s mind, what advice would you give?
The most important thing to remember is that we are all the same, no matter what our gender, race, color, religious affiliations or anything else.  Be kind to everyone until they prove that they aren't deserving of it.

What is the most desirable trait another person can possess?

What are you most grateful for?
My family, my memories

Is stealing to feed a starving child wrong?

What do you want most?
To die with all my intellectual faculties intact, preferably in my sleep.

Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
Probably doing the right things; I rarely do things "right"

What has life taught you recently?
Never let important things go unsaid.  You never know when it's the last time you will see someone.

What is the one thing you would most like to change about the world?
ONE thing?  Reverse climate change...and get rid of the man in the White House.

Where do you find inspiration?
People who speak up and demonstrate for betterment of the world.

Can you describe your life in a six word sentence?
I have had an amazing life.

If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
Maybe because we never actually learn from our mistakes....or we can never figure out what mistakes we have made.

What impact do you want to leave on the world?
I want the world to remember me as a good person who made a positive difference in some lives.

What is the most defining moment of your life thus far?
My life was changed completely the day I became a mother for the first time.

In the haste of your daily life, what are you not seeing?
The good things in the world because the bad things seem so overwhelming.

If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
Actually, I have learned to say "no" to a lot of things I don't like and enjoy most things that I do.

What lifts your spirits when life gets you down?
Lately it is watching all Ned is doing around here, for himself and Marta and for Walt and us.  It is inspiring and humbling.

Have you ever regretted something you did not say or do?
Oh sure.  Many times.

Has your greatest fear ever come true?
Yes.  When our kids were little, I feared something terrible would happen to them.  And it did to two of them.

Why do we think of others the most when they’re gone?
Because when they are here we don't need to think about them because they are HERE.

What is your most beloved childhood memory?
Wow.  That's a tall order.  MOST beloved....?  I guess visits to my mother's parents.  They had a house on an acre of land in Inverness, CA. My grandmother had the biggest hugs as she whispered "precious child" in my ear (Sorry, Jeri...I was a precious child before you were!).  We loved to
pick strawberries in her yard, blackberries on the wall of vines.  I loved gathering eggs with my grandfather and seeing the newly hatched baby chicks.  I especially loved spending time with my cousin, Peach.  We spent a lot of time eating green apples in the big tree and sharing life's secrets.  We didn't see them often because my father felt they weren't good enough for him, but I loved them so much more than his parents, whom we saw all the time.


Lacie's birthday cake
(no, I can't explain it!!)

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
Remember to sign your name in the "Name" box or else you will show up as "anonymous"
(unless you want to be anonymous, that is!)
