Now for the 11 Random Questions

1 What is your passion?

Wow difficult off the hop!  I have had difficulty narrowing that down because I am passionate about many things but I’d have to say writing.

2. Why did you start blogging?

I enjoy writing and my son suggested giving it a try.  I didn’t even know they existed, how to begin or what to say.  I’m not adept at getting around the internet, so all I can say, is I wrote a blog about blogging and you’ll have to go to my blog to find it.

3.If I could change one thing about myself, what would it be?

I would have taken my health a lot more seriously much earlier on.

4.Is there a moment in your life you wish you could go back to, just to enjoy it again?  If so, what is it?

I would go back to the moment I discovered the ocean, breathing in the delightful salty sea air and basking in the sun as the waves lapped the shore.

5.Are  you planning on publishing a book in the future,  If so, what would it be about?

In actuality I already have published a book, it’s entitled “Prisoner on Holiday” and it’s a mystery.

6. Do you believe in love at first sight?

I’m not sure it is “love at first sight” but I do believe an immediate attraction on another level can be felt that draws you to another and I don’t mean lust.

7.Is there something your afraid of that is quite unusual?

No, I don’t have any unusual fears.

8.What country are you from?

I live in Canada,  on an island in British Columbia.

9.How many languages do you speak?

Unfortunately, only one as I’ve forgotten my French and Sign Language and Spanish.

10.What is one of your most embarrassing moments in life?

I don’t recall any embarrassing moment, just humiliated beyond words moments, which I will not be sharing. lol

11.Are you happy?

The first half of my life was horrific, the 2nd half  was spectacular due to the arrival of my children.  They have added an invaluable and unequaled richness and we share a warm close relationship.   Unbelievably so, unexpectedly so.  Delightfully so. I am incredibly happy!

I am nominating and contacting the following people I have been following.  Their styles may differ, but their message is always interesting and clear.

I nominate AprilEsutton, The Story Reading Ape, Swaugh212, Marilyn Armstrong,Gbolabo Adetunj.  Unfortunately I’m not adept enough at finding emails and cannot add them.  However I replied to each as I am able to inform them about their nomination.
