Happy Friday, Gals and Pals...
Our FF today is in honor of spontaneous thinking!
1. What religion/faith besides yours captures your curiousity and why?
You know, I love Judaism. I so am enamoured by my rabbi friends when they lead a scripture study in our clergy group, and how much I learn. I love the rituals and prayers. If I could be anything other than a congregational UCC pastor, I would be a Jewish rabbi.
2. What is the first or most memorable pop song you ever learned as a kid?
"Hey, Delta Dawn, What's that flower you got on. Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say, you were a .....(can't remember) here today......(ditto)....to take you to that mansion in the sky-yi" I THINK it was Helen Reddy, and it was my first purchased 45 record. I memorized it and was going to go down to the radio station to sing it on air (or so I thought I was) and become an instant star, but I chickened out at the door when the guy said, "Can I help you?"
3. If God were a color.....(finish this sentence creatively)
a beautiful rich thick gray layered with subtle shades of lavender and azure and silvery shots...
sort of like the ocean on a really beautiful early morning and you are sitting in wonder, sipping your coffee and simply being all grateful and beloved and connected.
4. If you were going to make a sandwich right now for lunch, and you magically had all the items you need for it, what would that sandwich be?
Avocado, maple tempeh bacon, a fresh tomato off the vine, lettuce from the garden, and really fresh sunflower bread.
Or, a lobster roll from the best place in Maine.
5. How are you doing? Really, how are you?
Because of all of the lovely people around me, I am o.k. It is clear that in the next 12 months, no matter what, I will have a big transition professionally, because my current position is being cut to part-time and reframed in Summer 2013. This is all out of my control, and I have no idea where God is calling me and it's a bit anxiety producing at times, but for the most part, I am o.k.
Bonus: What are you enjoying/loving right now?
My new green Keen mary janes, Magic City series on STARZ, Nurse Jackie and The Big C on Showtime. My 15 year old spice girl poodle, named Daisy. Long walks the past few weeks. Flower baskets. Brewing Tazo Passion Tea with Zen Green Tea in my iced tea maker, and dreaming of vacation, which commences in a week.
