Friday's Feast - 25 January 2008

Thought I'd try this again. We'll see if I stick with it.

How many times per day do you usually laugh?

Probably 5 to 10 times a day. Twice as much if I take Maggie to the dog park. I find dogs at play to be incredibly amusing. There's amazing abandon involved. Even the posturing is for fun.

What do your sunglasses look like?

I have no idea. I believe the lenses are dark. In fact, I believe the frames are dark, too. I have a distant memory of the frames being somewhat angular. Rare is the day that they are actually seated on the bridge of my nose. I usually forget I own them. Wonder if wearing reading glasses most of the day this winter will change that?

You win a free trip to anywhere on your continent, but you have to travel by train. Where do you go?

Go west, middle-aged woman. I would so enjoy seeing the wide expanses of the West, both north and south. I'd go north first, hitting the Rockies, the high plains, Montana (birthplace of my Grandma S), all the way out to the coast. Then I'd head back home through the south, hitting all the beauty that way.

I'd read. I'd get off and sight-see. I'd drink it all in. Ahh.

Main Course
Name one thing you consider a great quality about living in your town/city.

When my children were little, it was definitely the high volume of parks. I'd say that most homes are no more than 4 blocks from a great park with room to run around and play.

Now, I'm very grateful for the abundant trees in this very urban village. Makes living here palatable for me, being able to gaze into my back yard and see my wide sturdy cottonwood, anchored on Ridgeland Avenue as it probably has since the house was built 100 years before. I love knowing that it was here in Oak Park when my grandparents lived here.

If the sky could be another color, what color do you think would look best?

Palest sunset pink with a hint of yellow. All the time. Gorgeous and flattering to old people, too. ;-)
