Three Hundred and Seventy Sixth Question

This might be the last question until next Tuesday (depends on if I saddle up to the laptop or not over Christmas break :)

May you all drink lots of egg nog, gracefully survive any family gatherings and be blessed with knowing you are loved.

The bartender at your office holiday party comes
over and asks, "What'll it be?" and you say...

Three Hundred and Seventy Third Question

Since I can't send each of you a Christmas card
in reality, here it is in virtual form:

The inside reads:

Dear Everyone,

Even though I only get a small glimpse into each of your lives through the answers, I still feel like we are all somehow just a little more connected because of this blog. After all, we all now know some of the most personal things about each other. Things that some of the people closest to you in your lives might not even know!

I most love the questions that seem obscure - things you haven't thought about in years - things you'd probably have never thought about again. The cool part of this blog isn't what comes out when you type your answers each day. It's what happens inside each of you when you read and reflect on your own lives, recalling the very events and people that have shaped you. Each question is subject to individual interpretation. The answers are never right or wrong, just your own. I'm sure someone out there has said this more eloquently than me...but, sometimes it's good to look back at where we've been so we know how far we've come and where we want to go in the future.

Sometimes I think about the fact that there are parts of this blog where the questions were springing out of me from at such a painful time in my life, that I don't like to even read those pages. Then I realize the bigger picture of this project, on a whole, reflects the ebb and tide of my life, randomly intersected with each of yours’ through the answers. I think how every one of you has made this place special and because of that I've decided to keep it going.

Wishing each and every one of you the best holiday season and an even better 2007!


Today's question:

Is there a person you can't or won't send a holiday card to?
Suppose you were to send one anyway, who would it go to
and what would it say?

How do you picture your life at age 70?

"...when you in your return shall arrive at pier No. 70 you may step aboard your waiting ship with a reconciled spirit, and lay your course toward the sinking sun with a contented heart."

- From Mark Twain's 70th birthday speech
