Share Your World – 2015 Week 32

I have missed a couple of weeks of sharing with Cee, in part because I was busy but then more recently because I think my muse has gone into hibernation. There seem to be no words crying to be released from my brain these days, but I’m going to give sharing a go this week.

1. Are you a collector of anything? Over the years I have collected many things. For awhile it was clown figurines, for awhile it was cat figurines, then I somehow accumulated some rooster figurines and photos. Now I’m trying to cut down on “things”, simplify life (and dusting) a little, so I’m avoiding collections of anything. So far, so good.

2. What is your biggest fear or phobia? (no photos please) I think that would be edges – I can do heights if I feel safely surrounded by a barrier of some kind, but put me up high with an unprotected edge and panic sets in. That makes cleaning pine needles off the roof and out of the gutters my least favorite thing to do.

3. Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational? Fiction, although I’ve read some biographies that I’ve enjoyed. I’ve started others and never gotten through them. I read for relaxation, and recently I seem to be more into what I guess would fit into the “chick lit” category, although not cheesy chick lit. Lately the books I’ve enjoyed deal mostly with relationships, human interaction.

Complete this sentence: If I Must Be Reincarnated, In the Next Life I Want to Be… I think in my next life I want to be one of my spoiled animals. You know, the kind that sleeps on the bed, has a chair of her own, gets tastes of people food now and then, is given treats and tummy rubs on demand, is allowed access to outside whenever she wishes and is never yelled at, only gently chided occasionally, followed by hugs.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful that I had a last week to appreciate. I am looking forward to getting my body and my muse out of neutral and into some kind of forward motion in the week coming up. That doesn’t seem too much to ask, but neither my body nor my muse are wanting to listen to me. Both think a nap sounds better. Or naps.

    I’d go for naps in the plural. They are good for you. I enjoyed your answers as always. Thanks Carol.

    Our muses must have gone on summer vacay together. When you see mine, tell her to come home. I used to collect Precious Moments figurines. Don’t colect anything now…except my house collects a lot of dust! Read for pleasure? I vaguely remember that concept. πŸ˜‰ Hope ypu are doing well, my friend. xoxo

  4. Hi Carol,
    Love your answer about reincarnation! Once in awhile everyone needs a chance to rest and recover and fill up your story banks. (I’ve written only two posts in the last two months.) Sometimes extreme heat slows a person down too. I always feel energized with the cooler weather and excited by the beauty of autumn leaves. Take good care of yourself and the girls!

  6. My muse has also disappeared. Must be the winter months (well, for me at least!) or maybe just a general slup in the blogosphere!

    On the topic of fiction books, I highly recommend Steve Martin’s “The Pleasure of My Company”, especially on audio-book (read by Steve). And anything by Bryn Greenwood (who happens to be one of my wp friends but, seriously, I love her writing!
