the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

From Japan comes this wonderful question (and lovely handmade postcard):

If you describe feelings by colour, what colour(s) is the moment of happiness to you? the moment of joy to you? and why?

Oooooh, how I like this question! I experience a small degree of synesthesia, which is basically a way of perceiving one sense through another. So, for me, for example, the deep blue sky of the western horizon at twilight "smells" like cinnamon. Every time I see that color, it's as if someone snapped a cinnamon stick in half near me. Mmmmmmmm.

Now, I shall consider what color joy might be.
