I really enjoyed this post Dori...it's nice to learn a bit more about you. I was interested in your desire to live in NYC and wondered if you had before...

Shinade aka Jackie said...

Dori you did a terrific job on this one!! I am totally with you on about 1/2 of your answers.

Wow I have been to NYC so many times and it's a nightmare! That is unless you are wealthy and can afford to live the high life...then I too would love it!!

I would love to visit London. but, I prefer living in the country.

Happy weekend!:-)

Gifts Of The Journey,
Glad you enjoyed my post :) I've never lived in NYC, but I've visited. But as we all know, living somewhere is different than visiting, so I'm sure it would not be the same experience. But I enjoyed it so much when I visited that I would love to spend a year or two living there,just for the experience....for the theatre and culture. I don't know if I would want to live there forever though since I'm a country girl at heart :) I think it would be great to have a bit of my life where I experience something totally different from how I grew up, kind of like what living in England is like...different. So yeah, it would be interesting for a while and then I'd have to leave though :)I loved thinking this out. Thanks for the comment. Have a great weekend! :)

Shinade aka Jackie,
Glad you liked my little list here :) It's great that we have some things in common. I can understand your nightmare thoughts about NYC, because it is loud and busy all the time, but also for me right now at this point in my life it would be exhilarating artistically :) When I was there it was an overload to my senses and I was glad to get home, but I couldn't deny how exciting it was and how I'd love to go back on a regular basis to do the things that I like to do. And you read my mind on the being wealthy thing. Since this was a fantasy choice on the list....in my mind the wealth would have to be there so I could live in a nice place. LOL. It's all about real estate baby ;-) I just think that right now at this time in my life, I'd love a place like that to jolt me into action and like I said before, I'd be ready to go home at some point though since I'm a country girl at heart. I like the peace of nature and I always will, but right at this moment I guess I need a bit of excitement :)

London is great. I hope you get the chance to visit soon :) It's loud and crowded like NYC too though, but I guess that's how it is with big cities. Yet I love going there. It's just cool to drop in from time to time and get a different experience. Thanks for dropping by and commenting. Have a great weekend :)
