Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

If you could be an expert at anything, what would it be?

    The first thing that popped into my head was a marine biologist/oceanographer.

    Then I began to think a little more in reality.

    Photography would be nice, so would an expert at writing novels.
