Here we go – sharing my world with you, week 18. Thank you, Cee, for the wonderful questions every week! As usual, I’m late in posting this although I had answered it a week ago – and promptly forgot to post.
Oh, by the way, I changed my theme temporarily because something wasn’t working with the other one – as much as I loved it. The left sidebar when viewing the main page wouldn’t show up, which made it seem weird. But it did show up when one clicked on the individual posts. Go figure…anyway, thought I’d have this on for now, and see how it goes.
What object do you always have with you when traveling and why?
That would be my iPhone, I guess. Although in lieu of anything electronic, it would be my Alunsina leather journal, and a pen, of course.
What subject would you like to study in depth, if given the time to do so?
The mind. I think the body is just amazing. We all originated from one cell that became two and so on. Our body’s cells are always doing what it does best to keep us working in tip top shape – and then there’s the mind, which can adapt to certain circumstances (to a point), has been found to regrow its cells, and so much more.
Neuroplasticity – that’s where it’s at.
Or maybe I just wish I could bend metal with just my mind, or read other people’s minds, controlling their actions and their thoughts, who knows? After all, X-Men does open this coming weekend!
Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?
My life has been anything but contented bordering on happy, secure, and predictable although these days, it sure looks like it – which makes this question a tough one for me to answer because I want a balance of both. I’ve been through the turbulent life with their extreme ups and downs and there’s something that can be said about that – never a boring moment. So, can I have a balance of both?
What are your favorite spices?
Chinese five-spice powder is not exactly a favorite but it’s one of my favorites, and the only one I can remember off the top of my head that is a spice – or a collection of five spices. It’s a blend of star anise, cinammon, cloves, Szichuan pepper, and fennel seeds and when brushed with sesame oil on chicken wing drumsticks (without the wing tip part), wrapped in foil packets and deep fried or broiled, is just amazing!
