This week’s questions are a little deep. I wasn’t sure about a few of them, but I answered them as creatively as I could. Scroll down to learn how you can participate.
How do you know if you are connecting with another person?
That’s a really good question. With my limited vision, I don’t pick up a lot of nonverbal cues. The only way I can tell if I’m connecting with a person to whom I’m speaking is if that person responds.
To be beautiful means. . .
to love yourself. Believe it or not, there is such a thing as inner beauty. It’s not what’s on the outside that matters.
Do you spend a lot of time keeping up with what is going on?
No. I listen to news briefs on my smart speaker when I get up in the morning and before I go to bed. I often tune in to NPR music stations during the day, which broadcast short hourly news reports. In the evening, I read my local paper. I have better things to do than follow late-breaking news unless it affects me or my family.
True or False. You feel that your friends have more rewarding experiences in their lives than you.
Frankly, I don’t care. As long as I’m happy with my life and even if I wasn’t, I’m not going to waste time concerning myself with any more rewarding experiences my friends may be having.
During the COVID19 pandemic, do you feel more swamped by your responsibilities than before the pandemic?
No. I was already working from home before the pandemic. So, my responsibilities haven’t changed. As a matter of fact, I have more time now than before the pandemic because at the moment, I’m not entertaining regularly at senior facilities, since they’re still on lock-down.

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
