friday five: random is as random does, or something like that

Kathryn at RevGals gives us a random Friday Five. Here goes!

1.  What’s up?  How are you?
I'm rather well, thank you! I've got some good mojo going on with my fledgling business, have two clients (gotta start somewhere!), am connecting with some marvelous women in business who know their stuff and help other women without blinking, and it finally feels like a real fall here in middle Tennessee. All of this is good, but what is great is that my spirit is aligning in ways it hasn't felt aligned in a very long time. To quote Josh Lyman, "Outstanding!"
2.  You are moving to a new office.  You can only take five books with you (pretend there is no thing such as kindle, nook, etc.).  What would they be BESIDES teh Bible, which is already written on your hearts, yes?
  • A Thesaurus. I love words, and a thesaurus is one of those tools that adds verses of meaning to a single thought. Not to mention that it is useful when working crossword puzzles. 
  • Frederick Beuchner's Listening to Your Life daily meditations
  • A comprehensive book of puzzles that included crosswords and sudoku (for those times when a mental gear shift is helpful)
  • A coffee table book of photographs of  prayerful communities around the world, Talking to God, Listening to the World at Prayer. Wonderful book that inspires me consistently.
  • A blank journal as a space to ponder, reflect, draw, and ...
3.  If you had a superpower that could give you a five hour retreat, and you could go anywhere in the world to spend those five hours on retreat (because you have superpowers, ya’ know?), where would you go?
The Isle of Iona. It's got sacred space, a view of Mull, the sound of water lapping the beach, sheep, good walking and great memories.

4.  What piece of music, song, hymn, etc. are you diggin’ right now?
A tune written for the pipes, Highland Cathedral. Can't get it out of my head and I don't want to. I can't seem to recall how to embed a video, but if you love bagpipes, visit the link.
5.  Use the following words in a sentence (or two):  Tangle, dribble, hook, Panda, shark, smile, worry, island.
The Panda and shark tangled about who would be voted off the island, unable to come to terms about which competitor had the best hook shot and who was most guilty of dribbling during the basketball competition. The Panda did not worry, however, smiling with the knowledge that immunity would trump home-court advantage.

Great use of the words! I think I'd like to go to Iona too... Instead, I'm off to our Diocesan Convention. Woot?

You watch Survivor...right? Loved the creative sentence.

Must google that book...good for retreats, for children's time, and for adult time as well.

Loved your complex sentences. We're together on Buechner, but I need to look up the one on prayer. So glad your new business is going so well. I love to see yuor pins on Pinterest about it.

Anywhere with sheep!!! Iona for the win. Great post! Two clients is a start. And hey, if you can't get the pipes out of your head, may as well groove to them :-)
