A. Never trust a sword to a man who can't dance
A. Unconditional love. Giving and receiving. The moment a small child says "I love you." for the first time. And every time. Being truly forgiven. Being accepted. Laughter around a table stocked with friends. Sharing of food and wine on a cold night: the storm outside, you inside, safe and warm and cherished. A perfect morning, nothing but bird song and a soft wind. Writing "The End."
A. Pieces of music, rather. The Moonlight sonata by Beethoven. Now, that's a song without words. Leader of the Pack. Torn. The Snow Patrol song I keep singing but don't know the title (hits me like a hammer, though.) Almost anything by Nick Cave. But this is just today...
A. Courage. I aspire to it. Compassion. Because I find that hard sometimes. Timing. I so often get it wrong.
A. Don't know about mine, but I just hate the over-use of the word "Appropriate"!
