6 things you may not know about me:

1. I have a pen and paper fetish. I keep it under wraps and I don't go all wild, but truth be told, I have a secret fondness for blue pens and specialty notebooks. It is always tempting to buy a new journal for this reason.

2. I don't believe in coincidences. Synergy happens and it happens all around me-- especially when I am open to it. I believe that there is wisdom to be had in these small but significant happenings. I don't pretend to understand all of them, but that just makes them more mystical.

3. I have over 15 types of tea to choose from in my cupboard, but my favorite is just plain Lipton. I love offering and fixing tea for others. It is a part of my Irish heritage and something I hold dear. If you were to visit Ireland you would see how tea is a fundamental part of their culture. Tea anyone?

4. I sleep with my mouth open (luckily I don't snore).

5. Most items in my house have been given to me. I often joke that I have a sign on my forehead that says, "give me things". I am fortunate to have a lovely eclectic home donned with these items-- probably due to some of you and I thank you.

6. I am a seeker of truth. I try to stay open and hear both sides of a story; I don't mind sharing my thoughts always seeking to solidify them as I gather data. I am not intimidated by contrary suppositions or different opinions-- however, I do get off put by others that don't give me the same courtesy.

Howaboutyou? Things that you would like to share?

I have an in-born quality of enoying meeting people that I know entirely nothing about. This is fortunate, since I meet tens of thousands of people every year (that I know nothing about). Once of my relaxing past-times is going around the web and visiting other people's blogs -- which is why I am here at yours. I usually will not comment, but I enjoyed your writing, and I figured that anyone who enjoys tea and has a patterned tablecloth like the one shown in one of your blog photos (very cheerful -- it would be a "happy" table to sit at), must be alright in my book. I probably will never be back here again, but thought I'd write and say hello (while having my morning tea, btw!). I pass my good luck and good fortune along to you and wish you a good day.

Hi Frank,
So happy you stopped by. I hope I have a happy table as you describe. Feel free to stop again. And, top o' the morning to you!
