A Day of Deep Introspection

If today was our last day on earth, what would you want me to know about you?  And what would you want me to know about myself?

Answer in comments, in your journal, in email, in theory, in retrospect, in your heart - and if you want, I will answer these questions for you as well.

~ With Peace and Love ~

Hmmm :::pondering::: deep, and brave question. I'll have to give it some thought. Paul is rushing me to the table. I'll think while I chew and I'll w/b tonight :) Love you and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Oh, shoot...I almost forgot "Hey Hunny! Love you too!"

slowmotionlife said...

Ohhhh... good question! Hmmm.... ummm.... errr.... uhhh.....

I think I'd want you to know that I'm capable of love, and forgiveness, and great hope. And I'd want you to know that you're capable of the exact same things.

Happy New Year, love. :)

Hmm ... what to know, what to know ... this is farther reaching than I leave the door open when using the washroom? Hehe ... let's see ... I think if it were the last day, I would want you to know it had all crescendoed and hence, "the best day," and that in my last moment I would bless God for all that I'd been shown in life. I would want you to know you will meet him soon and never again feel alone. :) Our best, Ayn and all

Everyone left great comments! I don't think I can compare. ummm. let's see.... that you, your music and your enthusiasm for life has changed me forever, I am blessed by you. Does that cover both of your question...it seems that it does. :)

I would want you to know that I have great courage and strength, and that it was those two strengths, coupled with love, is what made me take a MAJOR risk in my life, and that I encourage you to follow your heart & soul, and seek changes, take risks that will only change your life for the better. (One day I'll share my story on my journal). :-)

Although, if it was the last day on earth, I guess it would be too late to tell you that. lol ;-)

If this was my last day, I guess I would want you to know that I am a man who tried his hardest to do right, made mistakes, set about the task of fixing those mistakes, and loved the best I could.
I would want you to know about yourself . . . Through your music, words, and heart you have touched the lives of many many people. You are one of the good people.
** and if you want, I will answer these questions for you as well. ** Okay, I'll be brave. Let's hear your answer . . .

.... I'd want you to know that I'm a tender-hearted marshmallow that cries at parades & my children's music/choral concerts. And that I once had dreams of seeking my place within the music world as a musician/writer/singer...dreams change sometimes. I'd want you to know how truly talented you are & how brave you are for striving to achieve what many dream of, but don't seek. Stay on your journey, you'll make it Freee....

Things to know about me??? Hmmm--my most recent fav movies are "Kate and Leopold" and "Sweet Home Alabama". I know really mushy. I just love romantic and tear jerking movies. Something about them just gets to my soul.

I would want you to know that I never, not for one second, ever knew what the hell I was doing.

Oh.

You knew that already?

Wow - Happy New Year everyone. Great comments. A lot for me to take in. I just got home from a long beautiful night. After resting up, I'll be more able to respond. Thank you - with love.

sunflowerkat321 said...

I'd tell you I've never really figured out who I am. I can feel something in my heart trying to communicate but I can't decipher it. But I know I LOVE to see the sunrise, I love the ocean and I will never, ever take my health for granted.

raisinglouisiana said...

Oh Wow, that is deep!
I definately will have to think seriously
about this, and kudos to you for a great
subject. Happy New Year Trish!
Love, Penny
ps. I'll let you know.

sepintx said...

Questions......
About me: I am sometimes shy.
About you: You are amazing.

Happy New Year :-)

krobbie67 said...

I can't wait to read what everyone wrote but I don't want it to taint my response. This is a toughy, at least the part about me.

YOU: That you are complete, as in whole, as in perfect.

ME: ::::scratching head:::: That I care. (I think that's all that really matters, ultimately.)

Happy New Year to you too!!!

i would want you to know that i am a good person that struggles daily with a part of myself that leans toward self destruction. that my biggest accomplishment in my eyes is my baby, madison & how i long to give her a good life filled with happiness. i would want you to know that reading your words brings a smile to my face and your voice is beautiful in your songs.peace.

grodygeek said...

I'd want you know that I was a great father, just ill trained.

I'd want you to know that you are already the greatest artist on the planet, and that the rest of the world hasn't figured it out yet, but they will.

I think I would want people to know that I had lived well, that I had surrounded myself with the people I love, that I knew how to have fun, that I had a curiosity about the world that led me to do generous things, that I thoroughly enjoyed the journey of my life. I do not know you well, but I would want you to know about yourself that you have a peaceful way about you that puts others at ease. I can tell you have a kind heart.

alphawoman1 said...

I'd want you to know that I am a very compassionate person. It is the world that my mother used to describe me when I asked her to sum up each of her children in a few words. She also told me she thought I was very self reliant. ALso, if you ever have to go to a party or a function, I am a very good person to walk in with! Happy NewYear!

readmereadyou said...

That question alone shows you have the soul of an artist! So my question is answered. : )
Last day on earth? I guess I'd want you and the world to know, that I always felt love was the answer to every problem, illness and injustice in the world.
Have a wonderful new year,
Angela

harborkin said...

you are the best artist anyone can know and i wish i wrote like you. i have a journal too, but noone but me visits it. i wish everyone knew how good you are.

itsjustusinnc said...

Um, sweetheart where ARE you? I came over here expecting to read TONS of entries! But you're not here :-( Well, I am unknowable. I guess I'd want you to know that. And I guess I'd want to know from you if You knew how unknowable I am. LMAO! OK. I'm sorry. I'm being silly. Can't help it.

Last day on earth hmmmm...I'd want people to know I got "it". I've learned the best times in your life are the ones that you walk away from saying, "please Lord, let me remember this always." You know your life is good when you have said the above at least once a day. Love your journal. Thanks for your support on mine. :) ~Tara (Miss Peach)

sunlightbbygrl said...

Okay the one thing I would want everyone to know about me is............ that all that I ever wanted was happiness for Alex and my kids and I would want you to know that you're a wonderful artist, writer and person! Happy New year, Free!!! siempre, Shasta

ckays1967 said...

If today was the last day....that the peace you seek has a name. Think about that song: What if God was one of Us.

About me? God is love.

musenla said...

That I am a person who lived, loved, learned and left a legacy (hopefully). That you are beautiful even beyond your art, and that you have a good and strong heart. Happy New Year, dear Trish. =D

alphawoman1 said...

I forgot to leave what I would want you to know about yourself. Of course I can not assume that I know the real Trish, but I do sense a vulnerability that makes me want to mother you!

harborkin said...

i just want to say thanks for the nice things you wrote in my journal. thanks. and i hope you win best journal again. keep up the good work.

viviansullinwank said...

I can be shy and often deal with self esteem issues. I try to be the lady that my mother taught me to always be. I look for the positive in life and love to share with others. As for you young lady, you have a very calming effect on me. When I'm at your journal I feel peaceful, when I read your comments in mine, you just put me in a stress free state. Thank you for that!

gingergirl05 said...

wow, this is such an awesome entry!

About Me: Deep down, there's something in me that hints at survival and determination. Also, I like polar bears hehehe :o)

About Yourself: I would want you to know yourself, period.

Again, great entry! Have a wonderful day! - Kate xo

I would want you to know that I'm sorry that I wasn't more than I am, that I didn't do more with the time I had or chethe gifts that I've been given. I would tell you that you show a tremendous courage and generosity in sharing your talent with the rest of us: your voice, your words, your spirit, your peace.
