You Tube & Rowan

This post is for Rowan who posts lots of You Tube videos on his blog instead of working on his PhD - alas this will be no more (or maybe just not as often) as he enters the world of work shortly. Don't know that he comments on the videos, but Rowan, I salute you and say "Thanks for keeping me amused with all the videos and distracting me from work. I guess I shall have to find something else to keep me amused now......"

Skeletons and Closets

So this picture is courtesy of my Emily Strange calendar. It made me smile and then stop and think. I have one or two skeletons in my closet (well maybe a few more than that). Not that I'm about to confess all here..... maybe I too need a bigger closet to hide them all in..... either that or a confessional box.

Still pondering my questions as I drive around doing "work" (yup started back today after Christmas - it feels like I just got off. Grrrrr.......). This is not the place to answer them - the answers I come up with are best left in my head (or my journal). My friend Sarah talks about "cheap intimacy" in the blog world and I've posted on it before. I guess I still think the same.... if you want to know the answers to my questions...... buy me coffee :)

Questions Questions

Was flicking through an old notebook a couple of weeks ago & came across some notes that I'd taken when I heard John O'Donohue speak this time last year. I found a page with a list of questions I've been pondering since. some seem very pertient to me at the minute & are encouraing me to make decisions. I'll not be posting any of my answers (you have to figure your own out for yourself !!), but the questions might be something worth taking time to ponder over the Christmas season as you look to 2007.

* If you knew you couldn't fail, what would you do ?

* What are the 3 secret doors through which you could get out of your own way ?

* What decision do you need to make that you are putting off ?

* Who are the friends that you have lost ?

* What burdens can you not let go of ?

* What is the true face of your enemy ?

* Who has given you the truest gifts ?

* Who tells you the truth ?

* Who can't stand you ? (NOTE: this does not read 'who can't you stand?' that's another question for another day :) )

* What do you continue to put up with that you needn't ?

* How do your family really think of you deep down ?

* Do I know I'm alive or do I feel alive ?

* When was the last time I really listened to my heart ?

* If I could sit down with myself what would we say to each other ?

* Who can I open my heart to ?

Good questions - maybe I'll answer some of them here. But for now, my head is fried. Time for a coffee.

Tis the season of advent - hope you are all enjoying your calendars as we countdown to Christmas Day.... I'm certainly enjoying mine (see picture) (please spot the sarcasm before I get flamed !!)
