What is one topic you love to talk about?
I love having theological debates. I know it’s not a comfortable topic for many people so I only talk about religion to those who want to have this discussion. Talking about faith to someone who shared my faith helps both of us to understand the minutiae of it better. Some others, willing to discuss theological topics are from different faith and I feel that it’s a great way to learn about their faith.
Ask the wonder question . ‘But so, suppose there was a magical wizard standing right in front of you and you could turn your life into anything you wanted, what would you do?
Hmm….. What an interesting offer. I think perhaps I would like to change my life for that of my grandmother, my mom’s mom. She was born in the early 20th century. Was one of the few educated women of her day. It would be interesting to live in those times when people weren’t even used to indoor plumbing!
Could you adjust to life without any internet?
I think I would adjust to life without the internet after a bit of cursing because, in my life, the internet is quite recent. Before the internet, we used to shop in person, wrote letters by hand, called people on a landline, wrote the monthly expenses on a diary daily, and paid bills by going to the bank. One thing that I’ll miss very much will be blogging. We can devise ways to communicate with each other by writing via snail mail like pen-pals to each other.
What do you think is unique about the human ‘animal’ (homo sapien)?
Humans are the only species on earth that do things out of greed without the need. Like exploiting the resources of our planet, scamming people because they never have enough money, or accumulating wealth and sitting on it just because it gives them a feeling of power.
Share some encouraging words that you’d say to someone who was feeling down.
I think that telling people that things will get better when they are feeling down seldom has the desired effect.
Mostly I like to talk about positives in their lives. It often works or I try to make them laugh and feel loved.
On that note here’s Dinky!
Many thanks Melanie for always coming up with new, and interesting questions.
