Another day, another meme from Melissa. I was tagged this time though!
1. What was your favourite subject at school?
Ha! I was a goody two shoes and loved school. But the enduring top 3 were Maths, French and English. Maths because it is another beautiful, complex and yet so incredible language. It opened my eyes and my brain and left me reeling. Imaginary numbers, I can still remember the exact moment when the concept clunked into place.
English because I love words.
French because it was words and they sounded like music.
2. Did you have a favourite teacher? What was it about them that you liked?
My favourite teacher was my Dad. He never stopped pushing and extending me. With him as my teacher I was always excited to learn. Craved learning. That's a hell of a gift.
3. What do you like most about yourself?
I hate these questions. But my mind. My ability to easily make sense of things. To think expansively. It wasn't until I was an adult that I realised not everyone can grasp things as easily as I can and it's through nothing special I've done. It's just a gift I've been given.
4. Why did you start blogging?
5. Can you show us your 5 favourite blog posts?
Nope, I am very poor at rating my own writing. The posts I re-read most often however are under the heading "naissance"
6. What do you love most about your partner?
9 years and he still lights up when I walk into a room. With him, I never doubt my self worth. It's powerful stuff.
7. Next to your husband/partner/significant other/children, who do you speak to most often?
My friend Bob. He nurtures both my inner ridiculous side and the artist though he's probably only aware of the silliness. He's passionate about what he does without arrogance or drama. I respect him a lot.
8. What are your 5 favourite books?
Rowan of Rin, Emily Rodda
Fantastic Mr Fox, Roald Dahl
Emily's Quest, LM Montgomery
Anne of the Island, LM Montgomery
The Green Wind, Thurley Fowler
9. Do you have a favourite work of art?
Many. Here are some of them. Universally they look better when you stand in front of them and can see each glorious brush stroke.
10.If you could live for a year anywhere in the world, where would you choose?
Paris. 10 years of French education, a love of art, music and patisserie et fromage mean nothing else comes close.
