I’ve never made use of the Friday’s Feast (a buffet for your brain) questions, but as I’ve had a difficult week on the home front (no comment) and I’m in the "getting revved up and ready to write finally after too many days away from the manuscript" mode, I thought I would do so this morning.
Cruelty and injustice.
Soup – Who is a musician you enjoy listening to when you want to relax?
Oooh, tough question. I have many favorites. I have my iTunes and iPod jam-packed with all kinds of music. Right now, this very moment, I am listening to Dino (pianist). And I absolutely love the Finding Neverland soundtrack and have used it when getting my last two massages. Very soothing.
Salad – What was the last book you purchased?
I just placed an order for 25 copies of Heaven
by Randy Alcorn for my mom to give as gifts to people she loves.
(Amazing book if you haven’t read it.) For myself, the last book I
purchased was What the Wind Picked Up (see my previous post).
Main Course – If you could live one day as any historical figure, who would it be, and what would you do?
wow. If I took time to think about this, I could come up with a long
string. History is one of my interests (which is why I’ve written more
than 30 historical novels). But I’ll go with the very first thought
that popped into my head when I read the question: I would be Peter on
the day he walked on water. I would love to experience a miracle like
that one, and I would love to feel Jesus taking my hand to rescue me
when I cried out. Well, since this is a wish, I guess I would want Him
to take my hand without me losing faith and starting to sink.
Dessert – Tell about a time when you were lost. Where did you end up? How long did it take you to get back to where you were going?
I cannot think of one single time I’ve been lost. I have an innate
sense of direction and a love of maps and ability to understand them.
I’m sure I have been temporarily lost in the past, but it wasn’t to a
degree that made it store in my memory banks.
Of course, that
was a physical answer. I have been lost spiritually. I ended up in a
lot of trouble while I walked in a period of rebellion. It took me
about four years to get back to the foot of the cross which is my
permanent destination while I walk this earth.
Okay, now it is time I get to work on my book.
