If I Were. . .

I've been "tagged" by Carol from Carol's Storybook / Parenting Decisions to answer some questions.

Here's the scoop on how to play: I pick 5 occupations out of the list below and post my answers. Then I tag 3 other people to post their answers on their blog. If I tag you, and you don't want to be a part of this, then that is okay. Just let me know and I'll tag someone else.

The "questions": If I could be a scientist...If I could be a farmer...If I could be a musician...If I could be a doctor...If I could be a painter...If I could be a gardener...If I could be a missionary...If I could be a chef...If I could be an architect...If I could be a linguist...If I could be a psychologist...If I could be a librarian...If I could be an athlete...If I could be a lawyer...If I could be an inn-keeper...If I could be a professor...If I could be a writer...If I could be a llama-rider...If I could be a bonnie pirate...If I could be an astronaut...If I could be a world famous blogger...If I could be a justice on any one court in the world...If I could be married to any current famous political figure...

Here are my answers:

If I could be a painter, I'd go to the places I've been and felt overwhelmed, and capture on canvas the feelings and sights. My heart would be turned to the Creator in worship, as He allowed my creativity to capture just a bit of the world.

If I could be a writer, I'd head for the hills and write poetry to express my soul. I'd pen influential essays on policy issues that would land me a place in the university speaking circuit. I'd write books that would encourage people, especially as they struggle to keep their eyes on God as they live in a fallen world.

If I could be a bonnie pirate, I'd make my home on an isolated Caribbean isle, sit in a hammock and read all day while sipping pina coladas. My mateys and I would take a monthly jaunt on my good ship, to do the whole pirate pillaging and plundering thing. And then I'd return home to rest in the shade, reading and sipping.

If I could be a scientist, I'd do research related to brain development, learning, endocrinology and attachment.

If I could be a world famous blogger, I'd want to publicize a freedom movement in a former soviet state. I'd turn my blog orange. I'd help communicate the heart of what was going on--not just the political machinations. I'd get an Instalanche and people I don't even know would be visiting my lowly little blog. Oh, wait. Did that already.

Now I get to tag three people: Dogwood Blue, Blogma, and Gideon Strauss (though I'm not sure he'll want to join in. . .)

What a fun game! You have some interesting responses. If you are ever a pirate, can I come along? I'm going to check out the people you tagged now.

Just responded to your "tag." I tried trackbacking but got an error. Hmmm.

Oh, good I saw someone doing this meme a few days ago and it looked fun. Thanks for tagging me.

Posted by: Dogwood Blue at April 27, 2005 08:37 PM

I love your answers. :-) Especially the piratey one. Wonder if one could be a pillaging, plundering, painting pirate?

Posted by: thicket dweller at April 28, 2005 03:44 AM

Of course I want to join in!

Posted by: Gideon Strauss at April 29, 2005 07:45 AM

Why on earth not!? See my response here. Thank you for the privilege!

Posted by: Gideon Strauss at April 29, 2005 08:38 AM

I'm so glad y'all joined in!

(And Gideon--I just haven't seen you respond to many memes. But I was curious what you'd answer. Can I come live in the community you design?)

Posted by: TulipGirl at April 29, 2005 10:03 AM

It's true, I don't do many memes. But for a friend, I would!

Posted by: Gideon Strauss at April 29, 2005 10:24 AM

Uhhh,...You mean I have been reading you all this time and your not a world famous blogger? What are you? Are you ...just a famous blogger? A blogger on the other side of the world? Do you mean your fame is not associated with your blog? I'm truly puzzled.
