I’m a day late and a dollar short. Thanks Melanie and Roger for the awesome questions.
- One of my favorite gifts that Harry Potter received came from the Weasley Twins; and was “Mrs. Mooney’s Marauder’s Map”. This magical document showed every classroom, hallway and secret corner in all of Hogwarts. It also showed you the location- by name- of every person in Hogwarts. If you had such a magical map of your town, what would you use it for? If you would not use it, is there another person to whom you would gift it? I would use the map to get around town and avoid traffic … if such a time ever happens again 😦
- When was the last time you made a snowball? Were in a snowball fight? In 1966, but I do not remember it of course. I was too young. But there are picture which prove it. It rarely snows where I live.
- Many cultures set great value in each child of the family having godparents. Did you have godparents? Are you a godparent yourself? Yes and Yes
- You have found a secret tunnel under your house. Where does it go? No tunnels. We are on a slab foundation. Haha!
Muggle Questions (of a more philosophical bent this week):
Is intelligence or wisdom more useful? Intelligence is aptitude to gain knowledge while wisdom is the ability to use what you gained so I’m going with wisdom.
How important is play in living a healthy and fulfilling life? For balance, I’d say play is very necessary. There’s a saying … “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All play and no work makes Jack a mere toy.” Moderation in everything including moderation. One needs enough play to be like baby bear’s porridge, chair, and bed … just right!!
Is happiness just chemicals flowing through your brain or something more? I think something more. What the more is? I’ll share when I find it.
Gratitude moment – the ability to feel something bigger than myself. It’s all sunshine and rainbows over here. Even when it isn’t.
