A 24-Hour Friday Five

RevHRod wrote...Yesterday I had the 24 hour flu. I had been told by the people who had it first that it really was a twenty-four hour bug. And so while I dealt with all the blech of the flu, I kept reminding myself that morning would come and I would feel a lot better.

This is certainly a strange way to start out a Friday Five but it made me think about what I might like to do if I knew it would only last for 24 hours. There are no reality boundaries to these imaginings. So here are the five things for you to consider...
  1. If you could dramatically change your physical appearance for 24 hours, what would you do? I would get rid of 50 pounds of extra weight and enjoy being more physically active for the day.

  2. If you could live in another place for 24 hours where would you go? I would go back to Japan, where I spent a year as an exchange student. I'd try to find some of the people I knew there and share lots of sushi and sake with them.

  3. You get to do somebody else's job for a day...I've always thought I might pursue a career in licensed massage therapy later on in life. I think I'd try it for a day and see how I'd like it.

  4. Spend the day with another person from anywhere in time and space...A day with Mother Teresa of Calcutta, working by her side.

  5. A magical power is yours. Which one would you pick? Any power that would enable me to alleviate human suffering by addressing its root causes...perhaps the powers of insight or persuasion, on a global level.

Sister Honey, I got to spend some time with M. Theresa. It is was an expereince of being in the vacinity of someone who was in touch with the Holy.

The Irish talk about "thin places" as being a place that exudes the since that it is close to heaven. M. Theresa was a person who exuded that sense of being a person who was close to God.

That's cool that you would want to be a healer because that's what I do!

And there are healer groups who do gather together to send distant healing to our planet. We need more people willing to spend time that way.

It's not hard to learn how to do! :)

Great play. I didn't do this one because I just couldn't think of any good answers. If I had, I would have stolen some of yours. Mother Theresa - perfect.
