Fragen und Antworten

More questions from my German friend Ira:
1. What are your life prinzips (principles)?
In the U.S. we have a saying, "what goes around, comes around" which basically means that whatever you do, it will come back to you. If you're nice to people, people will be nice to you. If you do good things, good things will happen to you. If you are rude, negative, or dishonest, that's how other people will treat you. It's not always easy, especially when I get stressed out, but I really try to treat other people the way I would like to be treated.

2. What kind of Present you like to get on Christmass?
I love everything! The gifts I really like are the ones that show that people have really had me in mind when they got me something. I enjoy a lot of things--books, bath products, anything beagle, Snoopy, or Winnie the Pooh related, fountain pens, and a ton of other things. The best is when someone says "I saw this and just knew it was perfect for you." It always is perfect for me.

3. How Do you feel now for the moment?
I feel sehr gut. A lot of good things have come my way this year--our great time in Germany, our new home, being close to my family so I can have days out with my nieces--it's been very good. Like every year, I'm so thankful for my continuing good health and my wonderful, wonderful husband. I'm in a great mood right now because I just had a lot of fun with Corie. I'm looking forward to our housewarming party on the 11th, and to Christmas in general.

Thanks for your questions, Ira! Keep reading below for more comments.

Ira also suggested:
I recommend you the movie: " Die Fabelhafte Welt der Amelie"
In the U.S. the movie was called "Amelie" and I loved it! This is a fun movie that leaves you feeling good about yourself and makes you want to do nice little anonymous things for other people. Great suggestion!
Book: Will Schutz "Deep simplicity"
I did some searching on Amazon and I think the U.S. title is "Profound Simplicity." I'm definitely going to check it out.
Artist or Albom??? The classikal Musik from Frederik Chopin. I like Chopin very much. It is also gut for meditation.
Ooo, Chopin is wonderful.
