Food for thought

A bus-stop acquaintance handed me this on the way up the hill this morning:

Pick 5 of the following and then complete the sentences. Then pass this little meme on to 3 more of your blog friends! But no tag backs! And be careful…you could be next!

If I could be a scientist…
If I could be a farmer…
If I could be a musician…
If I could be a doctor…
If I could be a painter…
If I could be a gardener…
If I could be a missionary…
If I could be a chef…
If I could be an architect…
If I could be a linguist…
If I could be a psychologist…
If I could be a librarian…
If I could be an athlete…
If I could be a lawyer…
If I could be an inn-keeper…
If I could be a professor…
If I could be a writer…
If I could be a llama-rider…
If I could be a bonnie pirate…
If I could be an astronaut…
If I could be a world famous blogger…
If I could be a justice on any one court in the world…
If I could be married to any current famous political figure…

so I picked ...

If I could be a painter… I'd paint a huge big portrait of autumn, and make liberal use of all the fabulous rusts and reds and golds and browns and greens of autumn. My painting would absolutely EXPLODE with colour, and I would hang it in my bedroom where it would be the first thing I see every morning. That way, I could open my eyes, and remember the delicious feeling of crisp autumn air and promise of newness that I associate with the season.

If I could be a linguist… I would study and learn languages and dialects from all over the world, and devote the rest of my life to developing a single universal language that would reduce cross-cultural hate, mistrust, and fear.

If I could be a librarian… I would want to be a librarian in a very special library that catered to craft-a-holics like myself. My library would be filled with knitting and crocheting patterns (etc) from around the world, and would sponsor knit-alongs and supports groups for people like me.

If I could be a gardener… I would have a special section in my garden for dye plants, because I have always wanted to learn about and try my hand at natural textile dyeing. I've used pre-prepared chemical dyes on wools and silks, but the colours are not as nice as the range of beautiful colours obtained from plants.

If I could be a bonnie pirate… oh what the heck! It would just plain be fun to have me own fast little ship and to terrorize the powers that be on the high seas! I'd be a bit of a Robin Hood, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, and I'd wear one gold earring and a black leather eye patch!

So which 5 sentences would YOU pick? And what would YOUR answers be?

Check out my blog for my answers ... damn, that was more challenging then I thought it would be!

Appearantly my passion is purple...but the little writeup does not describe me at all (in my opinion anyway).

I think they described ME pretty darned good! (except I wasn't wearing anything red the day I took the test ...)
