I see I never posted in this thread, but I think I introduced myself somewhere else, probably in the early days. I wouldn't even know where to begin, I feel most might know a lot already..? Perhaps we could answer each others questions for a change?

How about the one that answers the question then asks another, and someone else can reply to that?
My question to the first person to answer: Who do you consider closest to you? Friend, relative, partner... And what is it that made you bond that way?

Heya! I'll hop aboard!

I'm closest to a friend, (talking about you, Czarine!) I think we hit it off pretty well as we both had similar interests and we are both a bit reserved in certain ways... plus RPGs have deepened our bond!... and to the people who don't know, No, we are not dating!... (people tend to ask this a lot)...

Hmmh, then I'll ask to the next person... what is the worst smell you know?...

I'll take this one Berit!

The worst smell I know is my husband's feet. He's an executive sous-chef and works very long hours so his feet tend to get a little sweaty. When he comes home from work (and takes his shoes off) it smells like vomit and some kind of rotten cheese mixed together with sweat (ew...sorry to be so graphic...haha). It is very pungent. It is the kind of thing you've never smelled before and hope to never smell again.  ;D

My question is: Are you inspired by other artists (you may consider better than yourself), or is looking at others work more likely to make you uninspired?

Hell-o and Happy New beginnings to y'all.

AFKE - I bond to my friendships with common interests; My closest friend is bound by time (known her since 5th grade) and of all our group we have become the most the same in view and temperament over the last (ahem) decades.  Catwin is my favorite and closest art friend.  She is fearless when it comes to any art schemes or plans. So . . .I would say that I am fortunate to have a double handful of closest friends each to their own (category?) And I am grateful they put up with me because I talk a lot-and listen a lot.

BERIT - Overwhelming cat urine smell is a "trigger" smell for me. Nuff said *shivers*

MAGGIE - I believe I have a wheel house of people who inspired me as an artist, and yes all of them are better artist then I. But I see that every artist is better at something than me in some truly admirable way.   Not to sound like a corndoggie person (however true) Everybody on this site amazes me and inspires me.  There is a dab of every great artist I have ever studied in Art History - Here, in everyone.

Question:   What is your most memorial EQ moment that you Truly realized "zinged" through out your Life?  My example would be- Venka, When she says she was not taught to hate.  I had that luxury from my Grandparents when they continued my upbringing.  I value it.

I think I have many such moments, because there's so much I learned from this very very long story.
What comes to mind now though, is young Dart standing up for himself and what he wants in life, even if that's something nobody else would do or expect. He can't help but be himself.

New question!
Now that there's a new year there's always talk of resolutions... I believe in making these whenever I feel the need to change, not necessarily now. But is there something you'd like to change in your life this year, something new you might like to try or learn? Do you also have an idea how to achieve this?

I'll take this! I personally would like to cure from depression, it's a thing I've suffered my life from and I'm taking steps to recovery, it is slow but possible... I am currently in therapy for it, I'd also like to learn how to trust people, but I think that is something that will take even longer to heal...

the question: What was the moment when you felt that you loved something, not a person but something else, like wind or a season or something like that, what happened?...

I fell in love with fall/autumn when I was 12 years old. I had moved back home from living two years abroad. Many good things happened that fall, many bad things too, but all in all, good. I got closer to my older sister, met my old friends again. But most of all, I remember how blue the sky was. In Greece the air pollution is very high, it was so strange to look up and see how deeply blue the sky could be. It was mesmerizing.

Question: What kind of nature do you guys enjoy the most? The coast, the forest or somewhere else?

I think my favourite kind of nature has something to do with the sea. I've always loved how the sea smells, and enjoyed long, barefoot walks on a sandy beach in the evening or early morning. There's something very powerful in watching waves crash on a stony shore, or watching a distant thunderstorm out at sea. At the same time, I'm also frightened of it and its depths. Many a time a wave has swept me underwater when I was swimming at the sea, and I've learned not to go too deep.

I love fish and aquariums, so it kinda goes with the sea element. :) I've lived most of my life inland, so I haven't been able to access the sea so often, so I guess it has stayed mysterious and unique to me.

Question: What are you addicted to? This can be also in a positive way. ;)

Well, this is a negative one for sure. Coca-cola is my addiction. I'm trying to quit but so far I've had little luck.

Question: If you could have any control in how you were to die, be it in your sleep of old age or something else, how would you? If this is too triggering, who is your favorite musician?

If I had control of I where to die? I would either die saving someone else or among one of my walks to nature, Imagine knowing you will die and just finding a peaceful place among nature. sitting down and looking at all the lush life around you... no humans to disturb you, as you lay down on the moss you take comfort in the thought that you shall feed the animals in the forest helping them live at least a day longer and by doing so basically become part of them, parts of you shall live in them as structures of your flesh becomes structures of their flesh. with this you slip away peacefully...

I'd prefer my body was never found by human hands, I do not want them to disturb me in my resting place the way they have disturbed me countless times in life, I'd finally be free of humankind...

and my question, if you could suddenly eat something inedible, metal, plastic, you name it! what would you like to taste first?...

Glass! I wonder if the different colours would have different flavours. And would the shapes/usage influence the taste as well? Would a soft pink wine-glass taste different than the windshield of a car or the green glass of a beerbottle?

My question, if you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be and why?

So let's see what's in...

> Afke
> Q: Who do you consider closest to you? Friend, relative, partner... And what is it that made you bond that way?

Phew. Hard to say. I might be a bit careful when it comes to bondings. I do have a lot of friends, and a family (at least the part that is still alive). But who is closest? Not entirely sure. But I guess it might still be my mom.


> Berit
> Q: What is the worst smell you know?

Well, I have witnessed a lot of smells. Soft scent of things but also unbearable stench.

some solvents, plain hydrocarbons: not overly strong usually, but not really pleasant either
Amines: fairly strong sometimes, quite biting (ammonia as base compound, old toilets, urea decomposition, you know) (some compounds can be a lot nastier, e.g. putrescine / cadaverine)
Bromine: bromos (greek, "the stench"), well, it's a pure halogen, so it's stinging your nose, obviously
Stannyles: subtle smell, but invoking nausea (can't find something equivalent, but believe me you wouldn't like it. It's subtle, but still nasty.)
CS2 / H2S / Me2S / Me2SH: straight-forward offensive stench ("fart" and rotten eggs or pea soup left to stand 14 days in sunshine in a closed vessel, then opened)
R2PH: often with a sharp stench, rarely pleasant (people say it reminds them of garlic, but while garlic is kind of pleasant, this isn't, and the compounds are chemically different from anything garlic)
rotting (aerobic) sewage sludge: whoa, that stuff isn't artificial at all, thus it reminds you of things that you definitely should keep away from
R2Se / RSeH: nearly always unbearable stench, instantly hitting you
H2N-para-Ph-COOEt (Benzocaine): a fist right into the nerves of your nose, I think my nose hurt and I couldn't smell for an hour
I heard that TeH2 might be very nasty, too, but I haven't witnessed it. Yet. ;)
Also some things like smoking HCl, Cl2 and the likes will just sting and corrode your mucosas.

But I don't really have "psychological bonds" towards these smells so it is usually just plain displeasant.


> Maggie
> Q: Are you inspired by other artists (you may consider better than yourself), or is looking at others work more likely to make you uninspired?

Again, hard to answer. If you compare yourself to the bests you might demotivate yourself a lot. (Or strive to get like them. Probably depends.)
But I do like to look at arts, thus I am definitely looking at other people's work. And of course I also do relate this now to other areas, music, science and so on.
Of course everyone is somehow inspired, influenced by others. You grow up by imitating your parents, idols, whatever.
So yes, I am most likely inspired by other people's art.
At calendard picture time I sometimes just look at random art and try to figure out how they technically did things. E.g. that sometimes light reflexes are actually just plain white spots.


> Tah-Marien
> Q: What is your most memorial EQ moment...

There are a lot of moments that were interesting, impressive. Nothing life-changing maybe, or something that would work as a kind of verdict to apply to my own life.
But then, when I started reading it I might have seen it with different eyes that today.


> afke
> New Year's resolutions
> Q: ... is there something you'd like to change in your life this year, something new you might like to try or learn? Do you also have an idea how to achieve this?

Probably a lot. :)
But there's wanting it, then taking the right steps and actually achieving it. Three different things.

It's a bit hard for me since I often feel like I am a little nutshell in the ocean of life. You know. Not the hammer. Not even the anvil. Rather the thing in-between that gets hammered.
I'd like to be in charge of my own life, but this is something you can hardly achieve in a western society.

For the simpler things: Maybe get into a relation, more spare time (means cutting out more things, dropping time-wasters) and energy to be creative and have time for my own self, do (even) more sports (already succeeded so far). But there is the burden of my specification, my qualification in science that usually leads to mediocrely paid jobs with high demand in time and nerves.
Oh, and get better in using several programs (darktable, inkscape, blender, /bin/bash, ... ). Also tinkering and coding. And traveling would be nice.


> Berit
> Q:What was the moment when you felt that you loved something, not a person but something else, like wind or a season or something like that, what happened?...

There was no "moment" where "it hit me".
I love being outsides in my favourite places in nature - in the absence of human life (or at least loud, extroverted people that get on my nerves). I usually feel great. Simple as that.
Sometimes I feel the pain, though, cause I see that this is being destroyed by all those blind folks. Regardless if it is trees that get sick due to the climate catastrophy, or if it simply is platic litter in the middle of a forest.

The other thing is certain kind of music. I just feel like I lift off the ground.


> Startear
> Q: What kind of nature do you guys enjoy the most? The coast, the forest or somewhere else?

Easy and uneasy to answer at the same time.
Forest. Ponds. Lakes. Coast. Rocks and mountains. Trees, plants, mushroom. Animals. Weatherscapes. Snow. Mild spring weather. All of it.
Plus: I like sciences. This also is nature. When you look at the very chemistry happening, something under a microscope and you have a faint grasp of the greatness you are witnessing...


> Czarine
> Q: What are you addicted to? This can be also in a positive way.

Addiction might be a hard term, but anyway. I like things related to chocolate. I also like cheese and most yoghurts or some other milk derivatives. Well, generally a lot of foods.
I have a thing for a certain music. And nature, obviously. I used to like computer gaming but hardly find the time. P&P role playing and LARP. Not a strict addiction, but I'd not feel well without it.
Elves. Did I mention elves?

> Startear
> Q: If you could have any control in how you were to die, be it in your sleep of old age or something else, how would you? If this is too triggering, who is your favorite musician?

1. Hard to say. But what Berit wrote sounds fairly pleasant.
2. Too many to mention. ;)

> Berit
> Q: If you could suddenly eat something inedible, metal, plastic, you name it! what would you like to taste first?.

A bit weird to imagine. But yes, maybe there was something. It's a group of chemical compounds.


> Wildfire
> Q: If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be and why?

I'm doing well with kittens. Though dogs can be fun, too. Or birds. Some mice a really cute. I probably won't utter any super-exotic wishes here like ice bears, armadillos or dragons. ;) Kitteh is fine.


Question:
In lack of something else at this late hour here...
What do you think is the purpose of life?
