Most Influential Blogger Crop Recently, I was honored by Elsa Elskerarvid when she nominated me in her blog for the Most Influential Blogger Award.

Takk Elsa for din type nominasjon av bloggen min. Jeg liker dine vakre ord veldig mye!

As you may no doubt know, there are usually a series of questions that reveal some aspect of the nominee’s life, thoughts, passions, visions. So let’s try these questions on, and for me they are tough……

1-If you could create your planet what would it look like? Tough for me because unlike many of you I am not prone to using the word planet, or global. I am more local and service oriented. So let me take the easy way out…my planet: no harsh weather; all the seasons felt but no Arctic blasts, high humidity or cataclysmic events…nothing to idealistic there.

2-If you could visit one nation you have never visited before, what nation would that be? Too tough to answer…maybe I would draw from a hat and see if Italy, New Zealand, Chile, Peru or The Seychelles came into view.

3-Have you ever taken a long distance train trip? Yes, I was 12. By train, we left Portland and made our way to West Virginia, then from there to Wisconsin and then back West to Portland. That was a very long budget trip with only the coach chairs to sleep in.

4-What is something you would collectively change about humanity? Tyranny, War, Hunger.

5-What is your favorite song? Sweet Home Alabama or Hotel California or Leather and Lace

6-If you could meet one person who is still alive who would you choose to meet? Can’t think of anyone famous….I can think of this: love those close to you. Hold those conversations now that will give you glimpses of the loved one’s inner space. Don’t stare off later, after they pass, wondering what they thought about this or that. 

7-If you could choose one symbol to represent you, what would that symbol be and why? The Egyptian Ankh symbol of life. Why:Egyptian mysteries, Pagan, Spiritual, Paleo…simple and powerful. 

Now to bestow this worthy nomination to others……
