Thought Provoker’s by Rory of A Guy Called Bloke


How have you educated yourself today?

If by educating myself, you mean I have learned something new, then I have to say that I did learn something about The battle of oranges held in a town in Italy, from a post by Efi, a blogger I follow. I had some exchange of views about it because I feel that to use food, even to mark a festival is a waste and not right.


What is the biggest frustration you’re facing now?

Right now, I can’t have my daily walk due to my fractured foot bones. It is having a bad effect on me as I had cultivated this habit of daily walk over the last three years and I am afraid that I may not be as regular as I was even after the foot is healed.


What gives you meaning?

You mean, gives my life a meaning? That would be my faith and my family. These are the two strongest anchors in my life. In my day to day life, my writing gives meaning to it.


When was the last time you had an exciting idea that kept you awake most of the night? Are you pursuing that idea today?

I don’t recall when I was so excited by an idea that kept me awake all night. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t sleepless nights. Insomnia strikes frequently.


Do you trust your own instincts?

Yes I do. I think that instincts are based on the analysis by our subconscious mind, which stop us from doing something or pushes us towards some action. We just think that it is a hunch or instinct but it has a cogent reason behind it, which we aren’t consciously aware of.


Who are you becoming?

I am trying to become a good human being, a good blogger and hopefully a good writer. Other than that I may be becoming more overweight than I want because of this forced inactivity.


What inspires you?

I am inspired by good people, good writing and by reading great books.

  1. Hey Sadje, nicely answered – l am sorry to hear your foot is giving you a lot of grief – and that you are losing out on your daily walks. I used to love taking longer walks and l am missing those amongst other things very much currently. Scrappy can no longer walk as far as she once could, so even my morning dog walk with her is now greatly reduced because of her arthritis.

  2. Great answers, Sadje 🙂

    Last year I had what is commonly known as housemaid’s knee. Basically you get a huge lump on your knee, it’s painful, and it takes forever to heal. I couldn’t do a lot of the chores and activities which I normally do. I did some of them anyway because I can be silly and stubborn, and that delayed healing. I eventually decided to accept the ‘gift’ of immobility and limited movement and ponder on its possible other meanings.

    Sometimes life gives you a dead end at the end of a road you were following. Or a stop sign to make you wait a while and consider why you are traveling down that path. Sometimes it asks you to consider what you can do as you are at this time – perhaps that is where your focus should be instead of where it was.

    Maybe your foot is saying – write more, you don’t need to move around to write, focus on this new passion and now you have a good reason to spend more time on it 😀

    1. Thanks a lot, Ursula. I know that is a golden opportunity and I am enjoying my writing. But one gets fed up by sitting and lying in bed. But not to be ungrateful, things could have been much worse.
