I've been tagged by Freya and Blue Bolt (gangin' up on me, eh?)

How can I resist?

Four Things That Make Me Smile
Dogs running on the beach with their tongues lolling out and a gleam in their eyes
My children laughing
New born babies
My dining room table crowded with good friends and family (and good food)

Four Ways to Win My Heart
Have those sexy, crinkly lines fanning out from your eyes
Read funny stories or erotica aloud to me
Treat your parents with kindness and respect
Engage in thoughtful and intelligent discussion

Four Things That Turn Me Off
Ignorance in those who have the brains to be informed (willful stupidity)

Four Things In Which I Believe
A mother's love
The frailty of humans
The resiliency of humans

Four Things I fear
Losing the use of my hands
Losing my sight
Being so poor I can only afford cat food when I'm old

Four Things I Do Every Day
Read and Write
Think of my children
Talk to my sister

Four Things I Want To Do/Have
Do: Make wild and passionate love in the back of a limousine
Publish some of my poetry in a small press before the year is out
Have: A small, 3-bedroom home with a small backyard
A four-footed companion

Four Things I Want To See Right Now
My father
A full moon shining through my bedroom window
The Mediterraneanan Sea
Allison's village and the kangaroos

Four People To Do The Four

I love learning about other people like this. I thought about the losing sight thing as both my mother & my brother are blind (diff reasons). But having spent time with both blind & deaf people - I've come to the conclusion (for myself) that deaf would be worse. If blind - I could still hear the birds and music - get spoken books, hear intonations in peoples voices. The deaf people I have met have such suspicion of others that I find sad.

on a lighter note - a friend of mine has a blind mother & deaf father. Yep - he points & she talks.

You are welcome to my village anytime Bird.
I agree with Blue. My friend Lyn ( 'up-the-back')happens to be a teacher for the blind children in the greater area. She tells me of their joy in running as hard as they can even though they can't see where they are going and their love of braille books, music and their descriptions of "what colour is that".
I would hate not to hear...voices of my children, of my man.
Loved all your "4's" but I think I missed a couple in mine. No matter. Nice to see you back, Bird.

I found this exercise particularly painful, but good.
