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!

Above Average? Below?

Congratulations to Sheila, from France! Her postcard is the ONE HUNDREDTH Thought-Provoking Question posted since the beginning of the project! Wow!

And it's a doozy!

If the average life span were FORTY YEARS, would you lead your life differently?

(Latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control show an average life span (if you were born NOW) to be 77.9 years (for a citizen of the US).)

I'd worry less, I think. And I'd love more.
