Good evening, All! I just noticed I never came back and finished the post this morning before I sent it...
Forgive me for my absentmindedness.
These are in no particular order, just some of the people I believe would be interesting to socialize.
7 People (Dead or Alive)
Okay, before anyone gets upset about my choosing her for whatever reason,
this is my dinner party.
You have your own and invite who you would like.
Now, with that said...
After her husband (#44) came into power,
I became intrigued by this woman.
I began researching her background, her passions and her values.
(Plus, I have a soft spot for those who are educated in,
or those from, my original neck-of-the-woods.
I truly would love to discuss a magnitude
of eco-, socio- and familial dynamic topics.
This man is one of the few on this list I feel doesn't require any explanation, but since I am here to share how can I not tell you.
I have 3 main reasons for Mr. Hawking to be at my dinner table.
1. The educational level he has obtained must make him a fascinating conversationalist.
2. His perseverance, fortitude and ability to adapt and overcome a 'diagnosed' life sentence to the point he succeeded and flourished in his chosen field regardless of the 'doctors' diagnoses.
3. He once posted a question online, "In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years?". I would love to discuss this with him and the others at the dinner.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Associate Justice Ginsburg first made it to my radar back in 1993 when she was appointed to the SCOTUS by President Clinton. I was fascinated to find another female being appointed to the Supreme Court (the first being Sandra Day O'Connor). She is currently one of four women serving on the SC.
Born in NY, she graduated high school (her mother's desire was for her to be a hsitory teacher), continued on to Cornell where she would graduate Phi Beta Kappa and would meet her future husband.
She followed her husband for military service and would work for the Social Security Administration until she was demoted after getting pregnant with her first child. The following year, she would at enroll in Harvard Law School (where it appears the Dean in 1956 was a sexist ass). When her husband was transferred to NYC, she transferred to Columbia and became the first woman to appear on both Harvard Law Review and Columbia Law Review.
And that was just the beginning of all the wonderful things she had to fight through, like sexism, antisemitism, and an extreme bias towards 'mother-less families'.
Abraham Lincoln...the 16th President of the United States.
Who wouldn't want to talk to him.?
He was a self-educated, self-earned man who made it out of Wild West-esque Kentucky to the Illinois House of Representatives before he was 40.
He made great strides in all educational and political races he chose to run. He was honorable, a gentleman, a son, a brother, a husband and a politician (without all of the negative connotations attached to the word today),
Marsha P. Johnson
Marsha was one of the prominent figures in the Stonewall riots (June 1969, Greenwich Village). She and her friend, Sylvia Rivera, were credited with being the first to fight back against the police's injustice towards the LGBT community. She was also a founding member of the Gay Liberation Front and S.T.A.R. (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries).
Her credits in life (ones I find interesting):
* Modeled for Andy Warhol (Click here)
* "Saint of Christopher Street" (Click here)
Such a strong and powerful woman, how could I not want to.
Einstein's Theory of Relativity
* * * * * * *
This may be all you know about Einstein
(which is enough, provided you know who he is), but Einstein was always so much more.
He was reported as having a wonderful sense-of-humor, being poignantly positive and was fond of questioning everything.
He would often say to people who identified him on the street,
"Pardon me, sorry! Always am I mistaken for Professor Einstein."
What are yours? Let me know what you think!
I have spent quite a few years writing short stories that never quite fit into the 'normal' genre. When I came across the different erotica genres I was overjoyed. I had found my writing family. I hope that everyone enjoys what I've written. Please feel free to send me a comment/suggestion good/bad/indifferent. I appreciate all feedback! Bright Blessings!
