50 questions that will free your mind, part 7

(Previous installments can be found here.)

31. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
Er…working on the day of the Canterbury quake? I don’t know if that quite counts as passionate and alive. Maybe graduation last year. Or spending two days in the Coromandel, right before that, when all I had to do was eat, sunbathe and swim. Or going back to high school, performing in the talent quest every year.

No, I know. It was dancing and singing my heart out to my friends’ cover band playing Sex on Fire by Kings of Leon earlier this year.

32. If not now, then when?

…Is this following on from #31? In that case, I can tell you when – in a week and a half when I see Metallica live. October 13 baby!!!

33. If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?

Oh, money, probably.

34. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?

I don’t think so, no. Perhaps conversations where certain things went unsaid…but no.

35. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?

I firmly stand by the belief that love is not enough. Look, I don’t want to get into this, but there are plenty of things written in various holy scriptures that are polarising.

    On #34..me neither, but I do have a friend that I know really really well and it’s so scary sometimes the things we connect on. The other day I called her out of the blue and said “I’m eating curried chic peas and thought of you?”..and she was like, “I’m making curried chic peas right now.” A few months back there was a really lame lounge singer song on the radio that also made me think of her, and when I called she happened to be playing that album. Both were totally random things, but true.
