Maybe not for anything and everything, but I do agree they seem to help often. Mostly recently, for me, out of those three options I'd have to say it was tears. A good cry can be cathartic. Not that I need one very often, thankfully.
2. What's something you can't eat without salt? Do you normally salt your food a lot, a little, or not at all?
I don't like overly salted food, but I do like to use enough to wake up the flavors of the food properly.
I don't put it on salads, fruits, cheese etc. I rarely ever add any to pasta when I cook it.
When we first got married LV seemed to be attached to the salt shaker and put extra salt on everything. And I mean everything. I don't know what happened, but over the years he's been using less and less salt and by now days can pass with the salt shaker remaining untouched.
3. Sands of time, bury your head in the sand, built on sand, or draw a line in the sand...which sandy phrase could best be applied to something in your life right now?
Sands of time .... they seems to be slipping by so fast.
4. A favorite book, movie, or song with an island setting or theme?
Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorite series. It's set on Prince Edward Island, so that counts, right? I haven't read them yet this year, but I intend to.
5. Yesterday-did you run your day or did it run you? How so?
I had an appointment to meet and for a little while it felt as if it was running me. It was a good day though filled with playing in the snow, sewing, learning, writing, and then an appointment to meet towards evening.
6. You're on an island holiday. Will I most likely find you parked in a beach chair, shopping in town, on the back of a jet ski, or snorkeling off the back of a catamaran?
You would probably find me on a beach chair. Shopping doesn't sound horrible either, but I have no desire to go snorkeling ever, and I don't like water or speed well enough to want a ride on a jet ski.
7. What do you think we humans most take for granted?
I think it's very easy to take life and time for granted. It's so easy to assume there will be a tomorrow and that you'll get to see someone again. I really don't want to take it for granted, but I know I do. I treasure moments, cherish memories, and delight in the little things. But I think I unconsciously expect to have many more of them.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
That tablet that is just too pretty to write in .... the dishes too special to use ... the fabric I keep hanging onto because nothing has been worthy enough to make me cut into it ... well that's all about to change. Life is too short to hoard the things you can't keep. I'm going to enjoy them now while I can.
