Here we go!

1. Pick one thing from my interests list that you like, and explain why.
Celtic Christianity, because I’ve always thought it was so interesting how a nation so vast and secure in its own different, ancient brand of expressing faith merged and reconciled that with Christian doctrines.

2. Pick one thing from my interests list that you don't like, and explain why.
Interior Decorating, only because it just does not interest me very much. Though oddly, my daughter is hardcore enough into it that she’s considering it as a possible college major.

3. Pick one thing from my interests list that surprises you, and explain why.
Also Interior Decorating, only because in my eyes it’s a bit unrelated at first glance to most of your other listed interests.

4. Pick one thing from my interests list that you don't understand, and I'll tell you about it.
Ira Progoff

5. Tell me one thing that's not on my interests list that should be.
Maxfield Parrish. I just have a feeling you might like his art.

That reminds me - I should a message on my Celtic concert/worship experience in Holy Island. I never post anything relevant there.

The link is creative expression. I'm a creative person who can't draw. So, I write. I've always been a bit of a flake in terms of how I dressed. My husband once told me that he figured that this was how I expressed myself artistically - that I put together outfits combining colour of texture the way he did with his painting. Interior decorating for me is just carrying this to dressing up the walls. And every room in my house is starting to get a different theme - Celtic hallway, fairy tale/Tolkien-esque dining room, medieval living room. It's like theatre or theme parties for my house.

4. Pick one thing from my interests list that you don't understand, and I'll tell you about it.
Ira Progoff


He was a pioneer in the field of journaling as psychological growth. He developed a complex form of journaling keeping - a Progoff intensive journal has about 25 sections (from about 6 broad categories)at different tabs. I never went to one of his workshops. I borrowed a book from someone and am half-way through it. Some sections are kind of new age on chakras and ESP and things.

I have read articles by people who were glad they'd taken his seminars, but found his 25 section journal unworkable and reduced their own journals to about 10. I led a housegroup once where we studied "Spiritual Journaling" by Richard Peace. His book is based on Progoff, but condenced and from a Christian perspective. I love Richard Peace's book.

I'm really into journaling, so I think Ira Progoff had great ideas even though I'll most likely end up one of those people who takes his theories and modifies them to what's workable for me.

5. Tell me one thing that's not on my interests list that should be.

I will have to look up some of his stuff.

---- When you put it in those terms, yes I can see the appeal. I lack the skills to make such a transformation cohesive but maybe I can one day ask my daughter's opinion about it. She is a junkie for those room makeover TV shows on cable, and no doubt would love to do such a thing. Perhaps when I finally buy a house one day, we could do this. Thanks!
