Getting To Know You

Audio-Technica PRO31 photo 5

I’ve written here for awhile now and I want to get to know you.  Some of you have been here since the beginning, others have just arrived to the party.  My desire is not to make this blog all about me, but to share useful content that will connect us and move us to action.

I would like to hear from and get to know you.  There are a lot of interesting people who read here (I know via emails, facebook, twitter, pony express, hot air balloon, etc.).

So, here are some questions I’d like for you to answer in the comments below:

 

1. What is the best book you’ve read or movie you’ve seen so far this year?

2. What was the last thing you hoped for?

3.  What is one thing you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?

4.  What is your favorite quote and/or joke?

 

Thank you so much for reading and please stay hydrated, it’s a long hot summer. 🙂

  • So, I don’t have an answer to all the questions, but I just wanted to say that I always enjoy reading your posts here, and am constantly inspired and challenged by what you and other readers have to say. Even if I’m a couple weeks late in reading a post, and even if I don’t comment, I am reading!! 🙂
    Also, I just wanted to say to David that I just watched Midnight in Paris on Friday evening! Pretty amazing and imagination sparking. 🙂
