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!

Right in front of everyone

Fruzsi wonders

What's one thing you've never dared to do but always wanted to try?

Sing. In public. Where actual people can actually hear me.

From Belgium comes this inquiry:

If you were blind and deaf, would you want to live?

The writer goes on to ask:

Should we let a blind and deaf person live or wouldn't it be more merciful to let them sleep forever so they can start a new life?

Well, in my opinion, those are two entirely different questions. What I might do - for myself - is one thing. What I would do - for someone else - another thing altogether.
