A Phoenix Burning

Allies in Life’s Battlefield

Boy it seems like everyone is struggling these days in one way or another.  Financial difficulties, lost jobs, sick family members, injuries.  I’m sure others are struggling other ways and privately. 

So dang it all!!  We all could use a little distraction, don’tcha think?! 

Today is “Get-to-know-your-blog-friends Day!

Answer the following questions in the comments in any way you wish to…with words, or links to photos, music or video.  Take several days if you must…but I’d love to see everyone’s responses.  Could be a fun mid-winter distraction, no?

So, here we go…

You’re stranded on a deserted island…(doesn’t that sound lovely right about now???)

You’re hungry…you wish you had _______________.

You’re thirsty…you wish you had_______________.

It’s dark…you wish you had ________________.

You’re lonely…you wish you had _______________.

You’re bored…you wish you had _______________.

You miss reading…you wish you had _______________.

You miss TV…you wish you could watch ______________.

Have fun!!!  Be creative!  Share yourself.

And here’s to better times.  *raising glass* 

“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it. Let me not look for allies in life’s battlefield but to my own strength. Let me not cave in.”  -Rabindranath Tagore
