If you were given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do? (This is just a dream question, remember anything can happen in SYW.)
QUIT MY JOB!!
Finally get a place of my own. A small one story house (No stairs) with a front and back yards. And at least 3 Full Bathrooms! In My Dream House I would have my Own Large roomy art/writing studio. My art studio would be big enough for me to have my own personal Art Show! I would also adopt more cats and dogs.
Stephen and I plus a care giver/helper would take a month long vacation to the Caribbean! In fact I would move out of New York during the winter months to Florida, Hawaii or California as my body cannot handle Cold freezing NY winters.
Also I’d have my own personal Limo Drivers since I cannot drive and if I were to move to a more rural location with no transportation that would be the only way for me to get around.
In what do you find the simplest of joys?
Spending time with my brother Stephen and being outdoors during warm weather in Nature.
What would be your ideal birthday present, and why?
Since I was born in February when it is freezing cold in New York if somebody would give me a month long or even two weeks in Hawaii that would be a Blessing! Folks My 60th Birthday is coming up February 2019 so Feel Free to purchase a round trip ticket for me! Thanks in Advance!!
Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?
Yes. I live in a poor working class neighborhood where many of the stores don’t take cards, credit or debit. Even the Metro Card machines where you purchase your Metro Card to ride the bus/subway sometimes don’t take cards. Cash rules. Therefore I always have paper money but not organized.
Are You comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?
This is my retirement Theme Song because by the time I’m 60 which is next year I will be retired!! I believe the song answers the question. Doing nothing will be my new way of life!! I’ve been working since 1976 so it’s about time to do nothing or anything I want to do!
What is your greatest strength?
Toughness and endurance.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
The Cherry Blossoms
My Latest Most Recent Painting. It does not yet have a name. I’m open to suggestions. Please give me your thoughts on what I should call this painting!
I was trying to get it more like the experienced artist in the below video but mine did not come out like his. However I enjoyed painting outside in our backyard in this balmy 71 degree warm weather! Fun!
