A. said...

OK, a long car journey has allowed me to think.

What do you love the most?
People and the world we populate.

Closed minds - there are many sorts. So this means there are some people I don't love, but I do love people in general and the rich pattern they weave.

Losing my sight?

What do you want more than anything right now?
The things I tend to think of are impossible so I'll settle for that cup of tea.

You know how to ask some tough questions!

1. My family and writing.
2. Lying.
3. Being old and infirm, and unrooted.
4. To live near the beach and have a book published. Rest of family fulfilled in their own ways.
5. What I put into it, I hope. Who knows?
6. More than one place: where I was born and have roots (US) but also where I am at home (Canada).

On rereading this I think I didn't really say it right, but this is the best I can do for now :)

"An end to intellectual and economic slavery."

What do you expect from life?

"Absolutely anything I ask, for which I am willing to pay the price."

What does the word homeland mean to you?

"My place of cultural and spiritual belonging where my soul feels most content; the place I want to die."

Obviously there are no right or wrong answers to a purely philosophical discussion like this. We all want different things, expect different things, believe different things.

If someone asked you a series of questions today, would you give the same answers you might have given a year ago? Five years ago? Ten years ago?

These six questions are known as "The Anna Questions" which were asked by Russian filmmaker Nikita Mikhalkov of his daughter Anna each year from the time she was six until she was 17. He documented each asking and answering in a film simply entitled "Anna."

This was done during the time of the Soviet Union, and, as Anna grew older, she began to express apprehension that perhaps one should not be asking such questions.

Here is a film review of that documentary, if you would like more information about the experiment.

Patchwork said...

1. A big glass of Pinotage and crackers.
2. Obligation and Prison Break at the moment.
3. Lung cancer and big bottle of Pinotage.
4. A better treatment for cancer than chemo.
5. Success.
6. Two mud huts and barefoot, runny-nosed children running after a passing aeroplane and asking it to bring sweets.

I haven't been here in a while and I find an assignment.
No time at the moment to take the test. Perhaps I will at a later date, but probably not.
What's with all the short posts?

Thank you for the information on the gig line, I immediately told the husband he was wrong. Priceless.

Relax Max said...

No wrong answers, no right answers. I don't know why I did this.

---------

So give him a gig and make him work it off washing dishes. Or something.

Shakespeare said...

1. Compassion
2. Fear-Hate (a certain brand of hate)
3. War
4. A caramel macciato
5. Purpose
6. My own peace of mind

Relax Max said...

Shakespeare, I've been thinking and I can't argue with any of your answers!

Sheila said...

A remarkable set of questions to ask a six year old. Some of them I can see could be interpreted by a six year old in a six year old way, but, "What do you expect from life?", What does homeland mean to you?"? In a way, it's a shame that he stopped at the age of 17 because that's when the answers might have changed as horizons start to widen.

I so hate introspection.

Anyway - here goes:

1. My hubby
2. Working
3. Regret
4. Someone to refill my wine glass so I don't have to get up.
5. Not sure but I don't think this was it.
6. 2 thoughts - where I am from, and "homeland security." I really don't care much for either.
