Questions to be answered:

  1. Which would you prefer to possess  – power or wisdom – and why? Wisdom.  You can use wisdom to make good choices and improve your life or situation. That’s a form of power, anyway.
  2. What invention do you think has been the most important to Humanity? The laptop. I’d be lost without it. Oh, and my iphone. Love my phone.
  3. Which would you rather have – the ‘perfect’ body or the ‘perfect’ mind – and why?  Well, now that I’m getting older… lol
  4. Do parents have rights over their children – or duties to them?  Laws give us rights over our children for their protection until a certain age. We also have responsibilities to them as their protectors and guides. But they are still subject to us, not the other way around.
  5. Your child asks you: “I want to be a footballer but I want to be an artist too.  My teachers say I have to choose one.  What do I do?” – What’s your reply? Do both.
  6. You have the ability to write the greatest epic novel of all time –given a great deal of time  – or you can write a hundred bestsellers in a few short years.  Which do you do, and why?   Both. The point is to write as much as I can. Not everything will be epic or fantastic but most will be enjoyable, I hope.   
  7.  You can go to the swankiest, most expensive, top-ranked chef’s restaurant – cost no obstacle – or you can go to a small family place with traditional, all freshly made, home cooked food.  Super fancy. I can go to a family restaurant anytime, darn it.
  8. Traditional animation or CG?    Anime.
  9. What’s your favourite tree?  Any tree. They are all gorgeous.
  10. Your children/grandchildren:  a field, a bat and a ball or their school sports day?  Which is the most fun? Either. 
  11. Which: lying on a perfect beach beside a perfect sea or getting bramble-scratched and nettle-stung picking fruit with family?  Beach. I need more relaxation time.
