THE OFFICIAL 2013 BLOGATHONATX BLOGGER QUESTIONNAIRE
2. What is your blog’s name, URL, and what’s it about?
GrayGaia.com is the blog I have maintained for five years this month. I share gardening, photography and loads of recipes. “Boomer Musings or Current Affairs” is where I spend time blogging whatever pops into my head. I can be in the middle something and all the I just want share something and it all just starts flowing like, “Conviction”. Some rambling blogs like “Conviction” are on the condition of our economy, day to day concerns.
3. Please give me a link to your favorite blog post you’ve written in the past year.
My favorite blog post year was Panna Maria. As a returning resident to Texas I find that driving down any road leads to some pretty amazing stuff. But this interesting story of the first Polish Catholic Church and how it became a historical marker in not only Texas but in the U.S. as well as recognized by the Vatican will stick in my mind and heart forever.
4. Why did you decide to attend BlogathonATX? (Be honest!)
Well, you see, after five years writing a blog accompanied with Facebook page, I want to hear some fresh ideas. And I am working on a second blog on photography that is taking me in a completely different direction. So far I am writing guest post on a Butterflyfx.com the latest one I wrote was on a photographic option called “Negative Space”. Branching out into photographic environs is very new to me so learning new techniques are welcome.
5. If you had to be stuck on a deserted island with one celebrity for five years, who would it be?
There really isn’t one person I can think but if I was stuck the Nat Geo photography team and they shared their work. Now that would be special. If I was stuck I think Viktor Frankl would offer stability for a long term stuck situated on a deserted island. So far this author of Man’s Search for Meaning has led me through the waters of aging quite well.
6. If you had to choose your Last Meal, what would you pick?
A night out at the top of Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco where I would have a lovely steak dinner, champagne and tiramisu for dessert.
7. What do you like to watch on TV?
Classic movies, British TV and okay, (hiding now) I love anything historical. I watched a show about Tesla last week that kept me riveted. On the lighter side I am a lifetime Trekkie. I refer to it as being a “Trekkie lifer.”
8. Which of The Avengers are you most like?
Ironman. No reason. Just because when I watch the show I understand him the most.
9. Cats or Dogs?
Dogs! Anyone who knows me for over two minutes knows my heart belongs to these intelligent critters. But, I am not above stealing the affection of cats if the opportunity arises.
10. What is one quote that you try to live your life by?
My one and only quote, my true mantra is, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
