Monday Madness


this space is reserved for Monday madness (to be completed later)...


it's time for Monday Madness... yes, I know it might be Friday in many parts of this world, but then, Monday Madness is posted on Sundays, so forget it (what day it is) and just learn whatever you can from the exercise in sharing that is about to take place... remember, this could be quite psychologically revealing, or not, depending upon your perspective and the seriousness factor that might or might not be present... to know for sure, you must look into my eyes and ask and wait, for only time will tell... the answers may be brief for the moment... in time, I may return to expound... anyway, I'm gonna learn something now even if we don't...

and the Monday Madness operator takes over now:

Each week I will post three (or more) questions; I try to keep them on the 'light' side. Once you've copied and pasted them into your blog, come back and leave a comment here. While you're at it, sign up to be notified when I update! I'd love it if you would sign my guestmap!
