Et voila! Yesterday The Observer, after him having replied to the questions of Redrose, asked me and few other people to take the same questionnaire and write down the answers. Since we have recently exchanged ideas, I find it convenient and meaningful to respond to his friendly gesture.
Here is the project (all of them difficult to decide. question marks covered with bitter honey) :
1.If there is fire at home..choose one thing to save?
This is one thing ummm? If it would be several, it would be two volumes of poetry and my diaries. But since it is one, I think I would take a byzantine style icon I have for Archangel Michael. I love it with the afternoon light, on its golden lines and the background. More of an aesthetic pleasure to tell you the truth. (By the way, has it ever occured to you at the airport to feel afraid that you lost your luggage, and that you have to describe what was there in the bag, and realizing that you do not recall but very few items?? meaning that all the rest, the kilos that torture your hands are not important in reality?)
2.Situation you felt embarrassed in?
Well, this can be an encyclopedia-size account. I remember details since my very early years, so I have many instances of embarrassment. Embarrassment, I conclude, springs from the magical equation Memory X Reinterpretation (E= M X R). Ok, an innocent one, when mom was catching me having attacked the sweets and stuff (pies, cookies) kept for later in the cupboard. I was overweight, it was bad for me, I was greedy, it was bad for the arrangement of the right time for a feast.
3- If you can do over a part of your life, what will you change?
A long relationship I had established. Out of its many years, I believe I had been creative and shivering only for few months. This I would change, although I have no clue what I would do with those 6,5 extra years.
