1,Think back to the time you left High School, what were your hopes visions and dreams for your life/ for the world? I dreamed of a large world but wasn't sure how to find it. Curious about everything, I wanted to KNOW, especially about people.
I didn't envision much future for myself. My visions were interior because I was shy and hesitant about asking for much for myself. Going to college opened up the world for me in great ways.

2. Have those hopes visions and dreams changed a lot, or are some of them still alive and kicking? (share one if you can)
By the time I was mid-way in College, I wanted to know theology. Interest in theology and people continues to this day.

3. Hebrews 11:1 " Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. " Comforting, challenging or frustrating?
Comforting. I don't mind thinking into the future without practical evidence; don't mind if things are open-ended.

4. If resources were unlimited, and you had free reign to pursue a vision what would it be?
I would junk pick everyday.
I would re-purpose junk into art everyday.
I would be a gardener on an private English estate.
I would read 6 hours everyday.
These are solitary pursuits mostly. I might not like them if I could clone myself to do all of them all the time. I love family life and when the family noise over takes me, I like to think of this list (and more) as a mental get-away.

5. Finally with summer upon us- and not to make this too heavy- share your dream holiday....where, when and who with...
LH and I go to New Zealand for 6 months.

One of my coworker's daughters went there for three weeks and said it was the most magical place - as if fairies should live there.

I like the thought of mental getaways - I must do that more often.

Totally count me in on the junk picking adventure!

mental get aways are good. I love the ballet (the colour and the music feed me and take nothing from me)... it's a good mental getaway in a practical sense

Have a restful weekend
