About Thoughtsalone

 Thoughtsalone or Thoughts Alone is a collection of poems, prose, random thoughts, and other musings about life, love, family, exercise, work, existence, and anything else that strikes me in the moment and I capture in text.  Here and there are original photos also snapped in the moment that just seemed to provide a particularly interesting or unique perspective to me.

The things exposed when the water is low can surprise, confound, or even inspire.

    Hi Thoughts Alone. Thanks for nominating me for the Liebster Award. I decided a while ago I wasn’t going to get involved in awards anymore as they are too time consuming. I have however replied to your questions and here they are.

    1. What is most important to you?

    Of course the obvious answer to this is family and rightly so. Besides family I would say that world peace is something I pray for every day. I truly wish that all of us could live in harmony spreading kindness throughout the world.

    2. When you look in the mirror, do you ever look into your own eyes like you’re looking at another person or just at the rest (face, hair, body, etc.)? What do you see?

    Apart from the fact that I’m quite vein, there has always been a battle between the mirror and I. I’ve always been critical of what I see with occasional bursts of “not bad”. These are few and far between. In the past twelve months as age started to take its toll, I’ve become even more critical. Why do so many women including myself do this? I’m reasonably attractive even with the wrinkles although everything seems so much better when I leave my glasses off!!

    3. How many languages do you speak?

    Sadly, just English.

    4. Have you ever lived in a country/culture other than the one you currently live in?

    I moved from South Wales to Australia at age 13 with my family. I lived in Australia for 42 years until I moved back to the UK this year.

    5. Do you think it is possible to have more than one true love? At one time? Why or why not?

    It’s taken me a long time to find true love. I found him 13,000 miles away. We knew each other as young children and then became re-acquainted later in life. As to whether it’s possible to have more than one true love, I’m not sure what the answer to that is. I’m happy where I am and don’t need to find out.

    6. If you could do anything you wanted for one perfect day what would you do? (Assume you could be anywhere, had enough money for anything, etc.)

    Going with the flow is a perfect day for me. On the days when I allow myself to do this, everything seems right. Over the years I’ve learned that money does not necessarily make things perfect.

    7. What is your favorite book?

    Jessica by Bryce Courtenay. I cried at the end.

    8. Do you like to read books and/or watch movies more than once? Why or why not?

    I often like to watch films more than once to see the bits I missed the first time. If I truly enjoy a film where it evokes lots of emotion, I will watch it many times over. The only book I’ve read more than once is Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. I wanted to read Rebecca’s Tale, a sequel written by Sally Beauman in 2001 and decided to read Rebecca beforehand as I’d read it many years ago.

    9. If you could tell a person you just met one thing about yourself to help them really understand you, what would it be?

    I’m not a snob, I’m just shy.

    10. If you could share just one piece of advice with your child self, what would it be?

    Despite what the nuns told you at school, you are good enough, in fact you are more than just good enough. You are smart, intelligent and can be anything you want to be.

    Hello: As part of a technical condition of responding to a nomination, I have listed Thoughtsalone as a recommendation for the Sunshine Award. It all seems a little hooky, but If you wish to pursue this please see my site at Mvschulze.wordpresss.com under the “Awards” page. 
And thank you for your time and effort in producing your most enjoyable posts. Sincerely, Mschulze.
