Step into a new stage of life.
Nothing like getting a full-blown answer!!! :)
Wow is right..I read her answer and then the other posts. I'm not sure why I can't analyze my life in that way, or feel that deeply, to put pen to paper (finger to keys)to share with anyone. Maybe because I don't feel the need...but she did it beautifully and again I say "Wow".
Rosaria, warmest hugs. I trust you and so I can answer. Now, how are you, beautiful woman? Show me into the meat of your world.(By no means did you need to link, although I know that you know this. I had a few minutes before I was off to work and into my day and thought of you, as I often do, and your kind question.) xoerin
She's quite a writer! Impressive indeed.How are you, by the way?
Somethimes like a lleaves on the wind, but how are you all. Loredana.
I know how shallow the question is, no one really wants to know how you are when they ask the question, even me. But it seems rude not to ask it before getting down to business.
you know if we answered honestly we would probably feel a lot better, but i wondr how many we would scare away...smiles.
It's true. People rarely want to know how you really are.
I don't think we really expect nor want a very long answer. You are supposed to say, "Fine, Thank you!" No matter what! LOL!Maggie XNuts in May
You can't imagine how much would I like to answer this question.Warm hugs, instead. You are a very special woman.
Interesting. I read Erin's post a few days ago, and found it a bit overwhelming. Amazing writer!Me? I'm all right for the shape I'm in. Any more than that, and I'll have to think.
I can only say what I left for a comment on Erin's post...the two of you blow me away...your words are so profound!
Guess you got a little more than you bargained for when you asked that question! :) I'm fine, thank you!
That was a beautiful answer. I too have food, clothing, shelter. I have done my best with the history i have and now find that the one thing I am most of all is content.
Lol, doesn't matter what the other person will answer, its always "fine thanks and you?"
I agree with several, who consider it a perfunctionary greeting and don't really want to know.'It is kinda like "Good Morning" when it isn't "good" at all. Kids sick all night, have a hangover, Did not sleep due to personal problems etc.But we are expected to put on a smile and say "Good morning, afternoon, or night!:
Thanks for introducing me to a fantastic blog - she's a great writer. I have one friend who challenges me whenever I say I'm "fine" in response to this question... he wants me to answer it, not just say something.
"Fine" will never sound the same again. Her response encourages me to look at the meat of my life. Loved the line..."I carry guilt around like my change purse!" What does that tell me about me!Thanks so much for sharing this.
You're right. It's a stunning answer. Full of the stuff of real life. Precious. Thank you for sharing her.
