Question Time Over Coffee- 12-25-22- Family and Friends

Are you more socially or community-minded regarding people, or do you not think there is a difference between the two?

To me, it’s about family and close friends. The rest is just details.

On a scale of 1 – 10, how ethically minded do you think you are?
What behaviour do you consider to be ethical?

If you aren’t behaving ‘ethically’ at all times, then life is gonna be hard for you and the people around you.

Tattoos are a very personal lifestyle choice by those who have their bodies inked.

So – Do you think tattoos make people more confident or less?
Do tattoos look good on everyone?
[If you are inked, have you ever regretted any of your tattoos?]

I wouldn’t suggest what others do. Tattoos aren’t for me. [Just a guess, but people who tattoo their faces seem to want attention and/or fewer job interviews.]

What enrichment do you personally receive from being social?

It’s a wonderful way to test my own perceptions and values when I interact with decent, intelligent, people. I’m known as a gregarious person but I’m not really fond of socializing.

Have you become noticeably more socially isolated or socially interactive after the pandemic and the lockdowns? There may be no difference in your social behaviour; if this is the case, let me know below.

I didn’t even notice the lockdowns were going on. That’s how socially motivated I am. The views of others have nothing to do with my own measure of my worth so not socializing had no influence on my happiness. (My immediate family did not abide by any of the “idiotic” constraints either, so we acted normally.)

What would be your top sustainability tip?

Seems the topic of the day so, measure yourself against yourself – no one else. Self-reflection and self-improvement are the roots to being happy and fulfilled


We live in a world that treats being open and vulnerable as a taboo and something to be frowned upon, so –

Do you find it easy or hard to talk to your friends and family about your health?

I don’t bow to taboos-especially when it comes to free expression-, but I also don’t find discussing myself and my health much of anyone’s business. Perhaps, my socialization philosophy needs improvement? I’ll think on it. lol

What will you be doing this weekend?

Enjoying the warmth of family and friends and feeling deep gratitude for our Saviour’s birth.

As the writer and author of your blog, how connected do you feel to your audience?

Does your blog reveal too much, too little or just the right balance of you to your readers?

I’ve made a few deeply appreciated friendships. That was a surprise to me. Overall, I don’t write for anyone else’s approval but my own. In real life, I’m quite genuine and I imagine my writing reflects that.

If you were granted a day at being one of your favourite book characters, who would you choose to be and why?

One of the first books that I loved was The Jungle Books by Rudyard Kipling (NOT DISNEY)- I think I’d like to be Mowgli for a day communing with his animal family and friends.

What do you believe is the greatest threat to our planet today?

Human arrogance.


I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.

  1. Hey Susan, Happy Holidays to you 🙂

    Mowgli would be a good choice and l can understand all too well the fun aspect to talking with the animals and having a fun time with them all also 🙂

  2. Nice! And well – since you didn’t ask me, I won’t write up my own answers/publish, but many of your answers, whether I’m exactly of the same mind? Um…well – nice list of questions, still find where you and I have in common, here and there, things on various fronts – interesting read and no, I read, but you aren’t vulnerable or in danger of me attacking you, simply because ya posted/shared – 😀

Tell me something good...
