Get to Know Me Sunday 2

5 questions:

1.) Would you prefer to have many friends or a few very close friends? Both? I'll take as many friends as I can get, of any variety.

2.) How would our society be different if it were matriarchal instead of patriarchal? I think there would be a lot less overt violence and a lot more subterfuge...think Cersei of GoT. Just because women don't have the strength and testosterone, they can't be as in-your-face, but the type of person who likes power and likes to rule is out there and sex/gender is irrelevant.

3.) Would you rather be smart, athletic, or good-looking? Smart. Athleticism and looks fade a lot faster than brains. Usually.

4.) Which is most important to you- love, excitement, success or knowledge? Love and knowledge, equally. You can't have one without the other.

5.) If you didn't have to worry about money, what would you do with your life? Be an artist of course. Travel. Go to school. Be philanthropic. Find a way to help people love each other and live life more fully.

Get to Know Me Sunday

5 Questions:

1.) What car would you love to buy without considering any practical reasons? I don't know why but since I saw it a few years ago, I've wanted a Bugatti Veyron. There is something about it that's so...50's retro-space age. I'd like a Harley too, but that's not a car!

2.) Where would you choose to live if you had to leave this country? Vancouver, Canada if I felt the need to stay close to home. Or Anywhere, England just because I'm horrible at learning new languages and they kind-of speak "English" there (or, more precisely, *I* kind of speak English) and it's a great jumping off point to see more of Europe.

3.) What has been the most spiritual experience of your life? Visiting the Buddhist temple in Canton (Guangzhou) and the Seven Star Crags and the mountains all around. I felt a lot of connection to my ancestors. Also, my recent conversion to Buddhism has obviously been very spiritual.

4.) What is the best way to spend a rainy weekend? Cuddled up with someone you love, with nothing to do all weekend but make love and amuse each other.

5.) What is the perfect age? When you're old enough to do whatever you want and young enough to do it without aches and pains. Also, when you're mature enough to see what is rather than what you wish it was.
