Phew, silence now. What a beautiful sound:) Actually, the sounds of early morning, birds waking up and greeting the day. The ocean waves. Sound of a heavy summer rain on a roof and down a drainpipe. Musically, perhaps a Celtic flute / pennywhistle. Or a good drumming like a thunderstorm:)
47. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Beatles all the way. (adding here only: I like the Beatles, anyway, but my late cousin, Dougie, adored them.

I think my favorite includes Paul McCartney for his songs/poems. I miss Dougie. Sometimes a lot. I guess I always will. He and my late gram, too, the one named Elizabeth but she went by Betty.) M, Dougie, and Gram, are my three favorite people in thee entire world, the ones I've been closest with. Oh, if things worked out right, I'd even marry BJ, I know that without a doubt, and I've known him IRL since summer 2004, but, those three are my favorite long-term ones so far:) )

Only for 2 weeks, but it did alter my perspective on life and what's important, etc. Sometimes I need to pause and remember that:)Beautiful country, colorful people. As poor as the dirt floors they'd sweep and sprinkle w/ water before meetings / services, in their paneless windowed churches. And musical. A lot of music:)49. WHAT'S YOUR SPECIAL TALENT? I can multitask really well:) If I wish to, I can actually write decently, and I have a clue about dancing. I like arts and crafts and sometimes do okay with colors.
