I’ve written before about how I believe small details about a person can reveal huge swaths about their essential nature. Once in a while I happen upon a question that I think uncovers this kind of truth. Usually the question is about something really tiny. But somehow, in the glittering detail it reveals about a person, I think I can glimpse the shimmer of the whole universe that sparkles inside of them. Sometimes I like to ask these questions on twitter. I’m curious as to how some of you would answer them, too.
- If you are married, do you and your spouse have anything engraved inside your wedding rings? If so, what?
- Have you broken bones? A lot, or none? Which?
- Who is your favorite fictional character of all?
- If you are (or have been) married, what was the first dance song at your wedding?
- What was your very favorite book when you were a child?
Do you agree with me that small details about people can provide windows into the expansive sky of their souls? How would you answer these questions?
