As you can see, I am a newbie to this site, as well as writing. I haven't written anything since I was young, and started again in September. I had to find an emotional outlet (before I went crazy:)
I came here from Russia 23 years ago, I was still a teen. It was quite an experience to leave my whole world as I knew it, and try to make a new home, without even speaking one word of English. But here I am, writing poems.
So, sometimes I get confused with words, but I keep trying.
So, there. if you have questions, feel free to ask me anything

Alena Smith: What is the strangest thing that has ever happened to you?
February 25, 2014 at 1:46PM
    Petriesan: probably the time I saw a hitch-hiking skeleton outside Clovis, NM, or the conversation I had with a guy in the Nevada Desert one night at midnight who told me he was from another world in another solar system. I believed him

    Alena Smith: People can present good and reasonable arguments

Alena Smith: Who was the most inspiring person in your life, and why?
February 19, 2014 at 2:15PM
    William Walz: Bugs Bunny. Nobody ever got the best of Bugs.
    February 19, 2014 at 2:19PM
    shelley kaye: idk william. i kinda think the roadrunner was a little better - no one could ever catch him....

    Erik McGinley: My friend, Susan. She dealt with a situation I never could have and had kindness to spare for me at the same time.

    Tsukuyomi969: Questions like these always turn me into a liar. I pick someone at random and give a reason. The truth--which is probably not so great for the people I know--is that I'm not particularly inspired by anyone. That's not to say they aren't inspiring. But the people I'm moved by are fictional. Does that make me a bad person?
    February 20, 2014 at 1:26AM
    Alena Smith: Not at all, I think that's awesome. You draw inspirations from your very own inspirations.
    That's very cool

Alena Smith: it's Supper Bowl today!!! it's finally here.
i dont know if you know this about me, but i am a huge football fan. especially Seahawks, they are my home team, amd our fans are insane. you should see my house and how I decorated it. anyways, after winning another title, we had to wait 2 weeks for today. you have no idea what it meant, waiking up disapointed that it wasnt today.
but today it is!!!!!! it's only 7 hours aways. it means a lot for Seattle,
We never won a Super Bowl!!! and we came a long way and fought hard to prove to others that we deserve it
but with our new team, i have a good feeling about it.
so if you dont care who wins, please send some blessings and good energy our way.
please!!!! i appreciate it in advance, my friends
February 2, 2014 at 11:38AM

    Petriesan: Bored?
    January 30, 2014 at 9:43PM

    Borderline bored and curious
    January 31, 2014 at 1:11AM
    Garbie: read!
    March 14, 2014 at 5:12PM

Alena Smith: What are you going to do this weekend?
January 24, 2014 at 1:49PM
    adewpearl: Watch it snow, yet again.
    January 24, 2014 at 2:27PM
    shelley kaye: swimming in the pool....

    January 24, 2014 at 5:33PM
    Alena Smith: Shelley, you are a big bragger :-)
    January 24, 2014 at 5:59PM
    Alena Smith: I am sitting here, wishing it was a Super Bowl weekend, but it's not :-(
    Trying to pass time by writing.
    Go Hawks!!!!!
    January 25, 2014 at 5:24PM

Alena Smith: If you had to describe yourself in just one word, what would it be and why?
January 22, 2014 at 12:57PM
    shelley kaye: sensitive.... because i am.

    January 22, 2014 at 4:20PM
    Dan Diego: Not good at math
    January 22, 2014 at 5:15PM
    Alena Smith: Dan, you sound like me :-)
    January 23, 2014 at 12:17AM
    Petriesan: pain in the . . .wait, one word?
    impossible or incrutable
    January 23, 2014 at 3:46PM
    Petriesan: inscrutable
    January 23, 2014 at 3:46PM
    Alena Smith: Yes you are. I second that ;-)
    January 23, 2014 at 4:03PM

Alena Smith: if you can be an animal/bird/reptile for one day, who would you be and why?
January 21, 2014 at 12:37PM
    ravenblack: An eagle or hawk simply to soar.
    January 21, 2014 at 1:54PM
    shelley kaye: indoor housecat with a loving family so i can just laze around and have my human slaves do everything for me ;-)

    GO HAWKS!!!!!!!!!
    January 21, 2014 at 5:59PM
    Alena Smith: Shelley, very clever ;-)
    January 21, 2014 at 6:15PM

Alena Smith: soulmates, is it real or just a figment of our imagination?
is there that eternal connection that exists and binds the two?
How do you know?
January 19, 2014 at 3:57PM
    Erik McGinley: Soulmates are real. People sometimes do have extra special connections.

    I don't think that necessarily a one to one thing either. I can think of at least four people in my life (not family) that I feel very strongly connected to and think I would always just spontaneously feel happy and comfortable around.
    January 19, 2014 at 9:14PM
    michaelcahill: real for sure. transcends sense and logic.
    January 19, 2014 at 11:09PM
    Petriesan: yeah, I think it exists. Not in the way I am writing it, but for real and explanations are for private conversations
    January 21, 2014 at 12:18AM
    kiwigirl2821: soulmates real? I used to think they are but I'm not so sure these days. I have been married a long long time but the one that holds my heart is not the husband. I do all the right things but sometimes the other just pops into my brain and I have to ask why? I've always believed we are all capable of great love but I have to say being in love is not the same as love or friendship. Soulmates, hmmmm I wonder about that too ... When is it too late to find that one true love when you thought it was supposed to be the one you married...
    January 21, 2014 at 12:24AM
    Alena Smith: Once you have that connection with someone, it never goes away, you will always feel it. The two souls are bound. Even if you are not together, it's still there.
    Doesn't mean that you can't love someone else, just... different
    January 21, 2014 at 1:16PM
    kiwigirl2821: have to thank you for the inspiration for my latest write. This conversation triggered it. You rock sister! xoxo
    January 21, 2014 at 1:30PM
    Alena Smith: I am so happy, Kiwi. I can't wait to read it, honey
    January 21, 2014 at 1:52PM

Alena Smith: truth vs. lie
how can you tell one from the other?
January 17, 2014 at 1:12AM
    michaelcahill: By the amount of money they are asking for?
    January 17, 2014 at 1:48AM
    ravenblack: Flip a coin.
    January 17, 2014 at 7:53AM
    Alena Smith: Mike, hahaha.
    Raven, agree.
    January 17, 2014 at 10:23AM
    Erik McGinley: People do not behave consistently with their normal behaviour when they lie.

    Though inconsistent behaviour is not always because of lying.

    IMO false until proven otherwise, though false is also not necessarily a lie.
    January 17, 2014 at 4:48PM
    Alena Smith: Hmm, interesting philosophy
    January 17, 2014 at 5:22PM
    Petriesan: lies and truth are subjective, generally, opposite sides of the same coin
    January 21, 2014 at 12:19AM

Alena Smith: are you an early bird or an owl?
i am an owl. i am useless until after noon
January 16, 2014 at 4:59PM
    ravenblack: An owl!! Mornings are painful which really is because I stay up half the night.
    January 16, 2014 at 5:09PM
    Alena Smith: I am don't do mornings. I am just flying on auto pilot. Even my sludge cup of coffee doesn't always work. Then at two pm, ding!
    And the switch is on
    January 16, 2014 at 5:15PM
    nor84: An owl. I stay up until at least midnight and usually nearer to 3:00 a.m., but I'm usually awake before 10:00 a.m.
    January 16, 2014 at 5:34PM
    Alena Smith: yes, insomnia is not my friend. i just cant stop my brain from going a million miles per hour
    January 16, 2014 at 5:39PM
    William Walz: The last time I gave somebody an early bird I got socked in the jaw.
    January 16, 2014 at 6:41PM
    Alena Smith: hahaha. Will, you are insane
    you need help :)
    January 16, 2014 at 6:52PM
    Erik McGinley: Night hawk here. I have problems getting up before 4 pm :P
    January 16, 2014 at 8:38PM
    Alena Smith: a hawk, huh?
    let me guess, your bed time is about 5-6am
    January 16, 2014 at 9:21PM
    Alena Smith: another observation, most of he writers are night birds. that's when it starts working.
    January 16, 2014 at 9:23PM
    Marillion: Early bird. Up at 4:15 every morning to work out.
    January 16, 2014 at 10:01PM
    Alena Smith: good for you. i truly applaud you for that!!!
    it takes a strong will power.
    January 16, 2014 at 10:25PM
    Debra White: I'm an early bird.... shame my children are too!
    January 17, 2014 at 1:46AM

Alena Smith: what's new today?
What happened today, that didn't happen yesterday?
January 15, 2014 at 1:37PM
    adewpearl: well, today, in addition to the rain we've been having, we had horrible fog LOL
    January 15, 2014 at 1:44PM
    shelley kaye: been disgusting in california. 80 degree weather all week in january. ugly.
    January 15, 2014 at 4:22PM
    Alena Smith: Oh, I can't imagine. It would be nice to have some sun here, it's been cloudy forever.
    January 15, 2014 at 4:32PM
    Erik McGinley: What happened yesterday that did not happen today? It did not rain today :)
    January 15, 2014 at 8:21PM
    Alena Smith: nice, Erik. cats don't like rain much
    January 15, 2014 at 10:06PM
    Erik McGinley: I love rain! Rain is alive! Sun is alive.

    Central heating is so passee .. and it breaks too often too :)
    January 16, 2014 at 8:42PM

Alena Smith: Happy Birthday to me!!!

I am not sure how i feel about it yet.
January 11, 2014 at 1:36PM
    Erik McGinley: Grr, a day late. Sorry, Alena. Happy Birthday! :)
    January 12, 2014 at 4:44PM
    Alena Smith: thank you, my friend. better later than never
    January 12, 2014 at 4:46PM

Alena Smith: Are you a cat or a dog person?
January 8, 2014 at 12:22PM
    Alena Smith: Hahaha. Yup. That's exactly what a cat would say :-)))
    January 8, 2014 at 2:01PM
    Erik McGinley: Both. I like to shapeshift.
    But one of my favourite words of all time is definitely Miaow! :)
    Cats win hands down for coining the best word.
    January 8, 2014 at 3:53PM
    nor84: Dog person.
    January 8, 2014 at 6:41PM
    Just2Write: Definitely a dog person. Don't know what life would be like without one. Certainly a lot quieter. Miaow or meow is over-rated. I like woof.
    January 8, 2014 at 7:22PM
    nor84: I know what life is like without a dog. When the last one died, I waited 3 years and then asked my husband (who didn't want another one), "Are we going to have trouble if I get a dog?"

    Wisely, he answered, "No."

    Now we are both happy with the result, a Min-Pin I bought the next day.
    January 8, 2014 at 8:10PM
    flippant: Dogs!! Why? I guess because I find them more dynamic - they bark at stuff, I can take them out to the park, they're more huggable, etc. :) I never thought I'd have a cat (they always seemed to bite me!) but now I have 2, and they are delightful. They were raised around my dogs and act a lot like dogs, lol. One lets me carry her around like a baby - sooooo cute!

    Yes, life without a dog is awful!!
    January 8, 2014 at 8:29PM
    Petriesan: no one can own a cat
    January 9, 2014 at 9:53AM
    Alena Smith: Here's a story for you:
    A dog says, "humans feed us, give us a nice home, love us and take great care of us. Humans are gods."
    A cat says:
    "Humans feed us, give us a nice home, love us and take great care of us. We are gods."
    January 9, 2014 at 1:58PM
    Petriesan: no, the cat says, we let humans feed us, love us , worship us and we let them think we need them to take care of us, but when the Whiskies are ten minutes late, they are on the menu
    January 9, 2014 at 5:15PM
    crzypnter: I hope that you had a wonderful Birthday with family and friends we all need that down time to just be August :)
    January 11, 2014 at 2:06PM
    Alena Smith: Thank you my friend. I had an absolutely lovely night.
    January 12, 2014 at 10:22PM
    ravenblack: Both. We have 3 cats, 5 birds and a dog. One of the cats acts like a dog and the dog acts like a cat.
