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!

Time to Curate
We're beginning July. In two months' time, this project will be a year old. I am tickled by the response, and I'm already working on ways to keep the backs of the postcards interesting. Questions are still arriving, sometimes as many as a half-dozen a day!
It's hard to keep up!
So, I'm going to have to switch to a "curated" approach, especially because some of the questions are starting to be "repeats." I can hardly expect a person to scan every single post to determine if his or her question has already been asked!
From now on, I'll post questions that I haven't received before. That way, I'll be able to register cards at Post Crossing in a timely way, but still keep things entertaining over here.
For today: Would you risk your life for a perfect stranger?
I'm thinking that in an impulsive situation, I probably would. I'd push someone out of the way of a vehicle, for example.
In a more calculated way, I'd assess risk, I guess.
What about you? (I know you're out there, reading!)
