    Today I got to do something that I have not done in far too long...I painted a picture! A fairly big canvas too, 20" x 24". It's not totally finished, but close. Very satisfying. :happydance:

    This is my year to re-claim my creativity. :thumbsup:

    I am grateful that Life supports my creative explorations! :yes:

    8. Name three things you and your partner appear to have in common.

    9. For what in your life do you feel most grateful?

    10. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?

    11. Take four minutes and tell your partner your life story in as much detail as possible.

    12. If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?

    Set II

    13. If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know?

    20. What does friendship mean to you?

    21. What roles do love and affection play in your life?

    22. Alternate sharing something you consider a positive characteristic of your partner. Share a total of five items.

    24. How do you feel about your relationship with your mother?

    Set III

    26. Complete this sentence: “I wish I had someone with whom I could share ... “

    27. If you were going to become a close friend with your partner, please share what would be important for him or her to know.

    30. When did you last cry in front of another person? By yourself?

    31. Tell your partner something that you like about them already.

    32. What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?

    33. If you were to die this evening with no opportunity to communicate with anyone, what would you most regret not having told someone? Why haven’t you told them yet?

    34. Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones and pets, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item. What would it be? Why?

    35. Of all the people in your family, whose death would you find most disturbing? Why?

    36. Share a personal problem and ask your partner’s advice on how he or she might handle it. Also, ask your partner to reflect back to you how you seem to be feeling about the problem you have chosen.

    These are all good questions/writing prompts to allow one to get to know oneself better!
