Monday Mission


1. Who are your favorite cartoon characters?
The families in "For Better or For Worse" and "Stone Soup"
2. Have you yet reached the point where you feel like you are from a different generation than today's youth?
Absolutely. I am probably 2 generations away.
3. What was the first Music Video that really impressed you? What made it so amazing?
The Beatles doing "Strawberry Fields Forever" on the Ed Sullivan show, when they wanted to intro the song to the USA but couldn't make it over the pond. What made it so amazing was the sheer concept - although I guess you could also call Fantasia a set of music videos.
4. Name a song and an era that comes to mind when you hear the word "Retro."
"Rock around the Clock" and the 1950s - Also "Greensleeves" and the era of Shakespeare. Go SCA!!
5. How has your life been affected by HIV or AIDS?
I can't even begin to count all the subtle ways. The way my profession behaves, for one - gloves and masks and fear. Hearing that my kids lost another High School teacher, or a coach, or some other public figure to AIDS. Watching all the denial, public and private.
-question by Meredith
6. Yesterday in the USA, we celebrated "Mothers Day," a day where we honor the mothers in our lives. If you were on a "special day" nominating committee, who or what would you recommend that we create a day in honor of?
If you look, there are 'days' for just about everything and everybody. How about actually celebrating each day, rather than consuming our way through life?
7. Last week, we have several Tornadoes tore through many neighborhoods, destroying homes and devastating the lives of the residents. How would you feel if you lost every possession you owned? Or would it matter? How would you go on with your life?
It would be tough, but people before things always. Usually in these cases one doesn't lose everything - just most things. I would rather be naked, penniless, and posessionless than to lose one of my children or loved ones. I have been through major earthquakes, small fires, etc - and each time has been a lesson in what is truly valuable.
