Exciting news….. I am gratefully accepting my first award … The Liebster Award!!

For my nomination I must say a big thank you to Tracey Rains  from  http://spontaneouswhimsy.wordpress.com/ 


and now I have to answer her questions as follows:

  1. If you could be any animal, what would it be?

      If I could be any animal, it would be a bird….. one of the Apex predators in the bird world like our Wedge Tailed Eagle here in Australia or a Condor in the Andes …. soaring on the thermals high above the world. 

  2. What is your earliest memory?  My earliest memory is from when I was nearly three years old, standing up on my parents big bed with a brand new dress that was being made for me…. having the hem measure
  3. What accomplishment are you most pleased about?   My biggest accomplishments have been surviving this life so far in the face of recurring challenges including cancer and major depression
  4. Do you prefer nighttime or daytime and why?
    I usually prefer the daytime when the sun is out and the light is shining on me
  5. What season do you prefer and why?
    I love the Springtime the best of all when all the growth is starting to pop out in the form of tiny green buds and the dew is still heavy on the ground….. new life is wonderful and the colours are awesome
  6. What modern convenience could you simply not do without? An air-conditioner for our hot and humid summers
  7. What is your favorite holiday?  My ideal holiday is to be somewhere close to nature, in the Mountains or forests where the wildlife runs free and there is lots to capture in photos
  8. If you could meet any historical figure who would it be?
    If I went right back in history I would have loved to meet Queen Elizabeth 1 ( providing I could keep my head on 😀 )
  9. Who is your secret celebrity crush?    I don’t really have one but I guess if I had to pick one I have always loved Liam Neeson
  10. What talent do you wish you had?  I wish I could fly
  11. Finally, stealing from my own nominator…What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?  I really  want to find a comfortable space where I can discuss the things that are important to me and I can maybe have some small influence on making the world round me a more harmonious and compassionate place …. I hope it will give me more of a purpose
