I felt I couldn’t refuse. Please check out this amazing blog.

Oh to participate you :

Shake the hand of the person who nominated you with gratitude, providing a link to their blog.

Provide answers to the 11 questions they gave you.

List 11 fun facts about yourself.

Here goes 

1. If you were granted one wish what would it be? This sounds so trite and beauty contestant silly, but world peace. There’s just so much chaos and hate out there , it would be lovely to live in a world without both.

2. What is your favourite season and why? Fall. It’s just a magical time of year. The air almost sparkles. I swear I’m not drunk… yet. Kidding 

3. Have you ever had your heart badly broken? By whom? A few times and always by people I loved dearly. I guess that’s why they call it heart broken.

4. What makes you cry? Aside from heartbreak, everything . Ha! Injustices, sappy movies, songs, every time I consider who the president is.

  1. As an alcoholic I relate more to Hemingway. Actually as a writer I relate more to Hemingway. Hemingway was into many of the things I am and similar experiences. Despite being sober nearly 2 decades I still find a lot of sober alchies inauthentic and enjoy hanging around honest alchies practicing or legitimately on the program. Only 2 kinds of alcoholics I have ever known… male and female. Hemingway understood being a tortured male and didn’t need to take it out on a woman by pressing her into slavery.

    1. I think all writers are tortured in different ways . I’ve always been fascinated by the tragic love story of F Scott and Zelda. I’m happy to hear you are two years sober. I’ve never struggled with addiction but I know people who have, it’s not and easy road it seems.

  2. Just listening to some girl on the train calling some bloke a fag. These are the kind of people who make a wage from such rhetoric and using the right language. Friday night on the town and anything goes.
    I love Hemingway because he’s like a monk… integrity. I don’t know if I am capable of selling out. It would be like pretending not to know your mother even if she was insane.

  3. Congratulations! I’m also the same about wishing for world peace, spaghetti as my favorite since forever, hoping to be less critical and being just random.

  4. Don’t do these, but thanks for sharing – had a great laugh on …”What makes you cry? …every time I consider who the president is.” (And I love Falling Slowly too… Actually my grandson when he was a baby would only go to sleep with the soundtrack of Once…No lullabies for him!!!) Have a great weekend!

  6. I just saw your bit about Scott Fitzgerald, who I never read, so went off to research, (I like authors from that period too) Then I stumbled onto Miranda July, whose film I enjoyed, so I DL’d her book sample titled “The First Bad Man” and I’m reading it now, its hilarious! I think you’d maybe enjoy it too – its very sassy and “now” 🙂 Xx

    1. I just ordered the book cos the sample was so enthralling and funny! I’m going for the book cos its cheaper than the kindle (2nd hand) Love a good read! Have you ever seen her film “The Future” its so strange and arty! I wonder if you’d dig it? 🙂

      1. I might read the other samples of the other books while I wait for the postman, the film is kind of minimalist very odd style, a bit cold, whereas the book is much warmer – see if you can find the sample, so funny! ❤ ❤ Xx

  7. Great post! Pink Floyd reference. Nice! You have wit – a very underrated – but awesome quality to have! And your parents definitely have admirable careers. 🤙🏻 I laughed at your comment about the president. I feel the same way. Ugh!

    For now, I’m reblogging my favorite poet’s answers. Hope to get back to nominate bloggers soon! 😉 ❤
    Sherrie Miranda’s historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:
    Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too.
