Can You Hear Me Now?

Tuesday, May 16, 2006


I “borrowed” this from Tam over at What was I thinking. I’m so glad she has returned.

I know, I know I’ve already done one of these “MeMe’s” this week, but you know I love words and the subject of this one ironically enough is…WORDS!

What is your favorite word? My favorite word….okay, now let me my answer is: bliss.

What is your least favorite word? My least favorite word has to be: stupid.

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Creatively: putting my hands into/onto something and FEELING the creation come to life.

Spiritually: Feeling the presence of God in and around me and HEARING God speak to me (recognizing His voice).

Emotionally: childlike moments in life. The truest expression of emotions among people.

What turns you off? Prejudice, ignorance, hate, selfishness, abuse…among many, I’m afraid.

What is your favorite curse word? It is not blog-appropriate!

What sound or noise do you love? I loved Tam’s responses…I’ll try to be original on the heels of such expression.

I love the sound of children laughing. I love the sound of Jim Brickman on Piano. I love the sound of a wave crashing inland. I love the sound of my best friend’s voice. I love the sound of rainshowers. I love the sound of my husband’s voice.

What sound or noise do you hate? I hate LOUD, GANSTA Rap Music. I hate hearing people fight. I hate loud screaming.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Writer of encouraging books, of course! Graphic Artist. Personal shopper. Owning/running a comfy, loungy, coffee shop; furnished completely in garage sale finds! Hairdresser.

What profession would you not like to do? Telemarketer!

What would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? The obvious: “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Over and above that maybe, “Welcome home my child! Come here and give me a hug!”

ahhh, how refreshing (and blissful) to read your words again...I forgot about bliss!

thank you, friend, for accepting the tag and getting it so soon. you are so faithful.

I loved your responses, of course!
The coffee house thing is so totally one thing I'd love to do...I've whined to my husband many times about it, and the hairdresser! oh my word! (I secretly want to be one)

Sooooo, mmmm, can I be maybe be removed from "gone but not forgotten now"? I truly loved that you put me there, it was ever so very thoughtful to create a spot for us "sabbatical-ers". So touching to know you didn't lose hope!

To comment on a previous comment you gave would we email w/o letting the world know our addresses? I swear I really did consider the internet yellow pages before but then the "duh" moment came to be...ah, kpjara just isn't listed!!! Thank for trying tho!!!

You are too funny to stay gone for so long. I have needed the laughs lately. My email is actually linked on this site under my I'm out there. Feel free to email and I will do the same and consider yourself moved back in the "active" area once again!

Loved the dress BTW.

Uh, sorry. I see you don't like Gangsta Rap music or loud screaming...

Hey, doll -- I LOVE all the things you wrote about the sounds you love! I love them too!!!

And about that whole coffee shop thing ... my husband and I discussed that one time too. We discussed taking an historic home and converting it to a coffee shop, but I'll admit something to you ... and you only ... so don't share this with anyone else ... sssshhhh -- I HATE -- nay, DESPISE -- waking up any earlier than 7:00. Just can't do it! And in order to have a coffee joint, ya gotta. So pphhtt on the coffe joint idea!

You don't do mornings? I LOVE early mornings...of course I like to be in bed by 9:30-10:00 and can fall asleep in like 2 minutes by 10:30 pm

I'm thinking perhaps an after dinner, specializing in DECAF kind-of-place for you...with some live music perhaps...called "Dusk to Dawn"..then you could work later...sleep later...and there is no more beautiful time then dusk!

Overwhelmed! said...

Ah ha! I found your meme responses. We actually had some of the same responses...great minds think alike! :)

kpjara said...

Amen, "overwhelmed", amen.

I'm going to the beginning of your story to read about this little blessing of yours so I know the rest of the story...before I go back to the heart-wrenching stuff. I just wanted to let you know so it doesn't appear I'm "lurking".
