On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep?
A powerpoint, or electric socket. I have sleep apnoea and require a CPAP machine to sleep. Other than that, I can sleep on a rock.
Music or silence while working?
Depends on what I am doing. If I am painting, I like music…something more orchestral or instrumental, or choral… choir singing hymns. If its too modern or loud I lose my concentration. When I am working on the computer (writing) I like silence. When I am photographing, I get into the spirit of the occasion, I generally take photos on the street, so subject ot all kinds of sounds. When I am doing inventory control…stocktaking, I am subject to whatever horrible music is over the PA system in the shopping centre or store I am working in. I never knew there was such bad music in the world.
If you were to move and your home came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain?
My own easel and paint kit, my camera, and thats about it really. I live simply.
What’s your least favorite mode of transportation?
Least favorite would be bus. I am a big person who sometimes requires a walking stick. I find the bus doors and aisles on non- disability friendly buses too narrow, the steps too steep, and people in Sydney sometimes too rude to let a disabled man sit down. I find small dinghy boats difficult to get in and out of, but I do have fun travelling in them once I am in. A friend has offered to take me kayaking, but I doubt they make a kayak big enough to hold me. he he. (I am Santa Shaped).
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Would I be so boring in again mentioning my incredible boyfriend. I am forever grateful for him. Oh alright… I will be a bit more diverse… I am grateful for toilets. I came across a display by a group called Engineers without borders yesterday. They had an art installation to hightlight the need for sanitation and toilets in many countries that still do not have them. Funds raised by this installation through donations go to sanitation and clean water supplies to some villages in Cambodia.
