1. “All that is gold does not glitter,” written by Gandalf in a note in The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien.
2. I’m watching television right now (oops). My favorite song? Wow, just one? “Wishing You Were Here” by Chicago (with assistance from the Beach Boys).
3. I thought good cyber-exchange would be healthy. So far, it has been. After starting up the trappings of a blog, I wandered into a poetry class at Blogging U. That class and the community there have made all the difference.
4. I like rainy days. Rain is interesting. I prefer to be inside looking out (though I dreamed last night that I was walking in the rain).
5. Good conversation. The posting of things, even series of things.
6. The Hobbit.
7. Lunch. By then, my stomach has woken up; and I’m interested in food. And lunch, for me, has an association of gathering with friends.

Good questions. Thanks!
