From Nepal – a Sunshine Blogger Award!

I immediately need to start with a blessing for Isolated_girl of Nepal ,a lovely girl who is an excellent poet and new to the blogosphere, for her generous nomination.

I am not sure that I am quite “Sunshine” material but here goes.  It takes a bit of effort to construct this post so I may do it in two parts, the second being the links to  My nominees and my uestions for them.

Here are I_G’s questions and my answers:

  1.  What do you write and Why do you write?

I write about science to complete my PhD and I write poetry cos I discovered a streak of exptroversion in me at a mature age.  I am dabbling with the idea of writing a Science Fiction novel.

2. Who are you n where do you belong to?

I am Bruce and I have no Nationalistic fervour.  I have been a wanderer for some time now and I am not happy at home which is currently Bath, UK.  I grew up in the USA, South Africa and Great Britain

3. What do you love besides writing?

I love cannabis and I find it regularly gets me through times with no money.  It eases my mind and keeps me energised.

4. What is your ultimate aim in life?

My ultimate aim if to get my own business thriving and to have a child or two if I can find a brood mare for the job!

5. Are you single, in a relationship or married?

Obviously single, you can tell, right?

6. What is the best thing about you?

My build which is like a cowboy in the Westerns – broad shoulders and narrow hips of a gun-fighter!

7. Which is your favourite book and why?

Must be Love in the time of Cholera – it’s so funny and hot and steamy.  Marquez.

8. Who is your Idol

My Father.  Who left school at the age of 13 and elevated himself to the level of Senior Lab Technician, author of papers.  Great Father, always had time for me.  And Madiba.

9. Give some tips on becoming a good writer?

Jesus – you flatter me – where and when did I make that grade?

10. What would you do if you were the last person in the world?

If I was the last person in the world I would open the door and look outside and see who was left on the other side of the door.

11. How many friends and fans do you have?  Describe your best friend.

My best friend is a photographer in Cape Town named Rodger Bosch.  He’s really coool and has moved up in the world to have becpome a recognised artsts in South Africa.  Nice fellow.
