Hello there, welcome! I hope you enjoy your time here. I sure have :D. Oh wow, I only joined in January, but that seems like forever ago! I had to go and look back to see what my first recording was, can hardly remember :shock:. I believe it was in the play The Funeral. As for recommendations, what are you interested in? Do you like poetry? What about longer chapters? Does dramatic interpretation catch you eye? Do you like lighter stuff or darker stuff? Sci Fi? History? Ok that's a lot of questions, you don't have to answer all :lol:. I can just give you a better sense if I know what you like :wink:

Welcome, from your northern neighbour. 8-)

Hmmm... I think that Mur Lapherty book is on the app (which isn't ours; it just has the same name and some of its library is our recordings). I realize it's confusing. :)

Hi Ya, Northern Neighbor & Lymiewithpurpose, I am happy to be here! To my Northern-Neighbor it seems our forecast calls for snow tomorrow? Can you believe it? Oh well, such is the irregularity of Northern weather.

Lymiewithpurpose; I am naturally inquisitive of people and their designated purpose/purposes in life. As for me I am a servant to people in need, in particular marginalized populations such as mental health consumers, substance/alcohol addiction and incarcerated individuals.
What are your passions Lymiewithpurpose and are they somehow linked to your library?

Wow, that sounds fascinating! It's well above my head to the depth that you describe, but I get the sense that non fiction may be intriguing to you. Some projects you may want to check out (after doing your one minute test of course :wink:) are Passages from the Life of a Philosopher (there are some available chapters about contribution to human knowledge I believe), or our Short Nonfiction Collection where you can choose a short work to submit. I may be totally off in what I'm suggesting, but maybe you'll like some of it 8-).

As for my passions, I'm still trying to figure that out. Haven't quite discovered that one thing I'm interested in yet, or what I really enjoy doing. I'm often stuck at home because of chronic illness so I haven't really gotten to try many things. I do mainly read fiction however, non fiction can bore me :wink:. But we're all different and have our own interests!

I'm sorry to hear about your health, however, I enjoy reading your responses because your words generate strong character and positivity. It has taken years to achieve my current level of being as your current level of has taken you a lifetime. Logically this concept is universal and known by all, but it sounds intelligent none the less. Imagine walking on sandy beach, each step sand collects on your feet. Traveling through life is like sand, choosing what is valuable and what is not.

Now for a silly question; Do you wash your feet?

Ok, wow this is some deep stuff here! Still trying to comprehend it, but sounds smart! When you ask if I wash my feet, do you mean in real life or in this scenario? In the scenario I don't think it's possible to... in real life I mean I don't scrub them but when I'm in the shower I stand in water so sort of?? What about you 8-)?

The wash your feet part was an act humor, that's all. I didn't know how you would take it, it was all in fun

Aaah, gotcha. I have a very unique sense of humor :lol:. And I didn’t pick up on it because you had just explained your deep thoughts :D

For me, deep thoughts are merely exercise for shallow stinkers / thinkers
