Another day of gray skies and white grounds – getting twitchy here. Feeling confined. I want to go for a walk on non-icy surfaces, in relative warmth. Tomorrow, groundhog, I'm wanting you to be nice to all of us! In the meantime, Cee has offered another chance to escape, and I’m going to take advantage of it.
What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person? Oh, but there are so many. The Pacific and Atlantic oceans (are they a venue?), The Grand Canyon, the Badlands in North Dakota, Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, The Rocky Mountains from Colorado to British Columbia, I’m sure I’m forgetting some of the others I’ve seen.
How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order? I had two brothers, the eldest eight years younger than I. The youngest passed on several years ago.
If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why? Probably a sneaker, something that holds up to lots of abuse, but keeps the feet comfortable, and is appropriate for many situations.
What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten? When I was in my early teens, we visited some family friends in either Montana or Wyoming, I’ve forgotten which – because it’s been a year or two since I was in my early teens. Anyway, we joined them for dinner, and I took what was offered, enjoying the meat I was eating until I asked what it was – it was Elk tongue. It didn’t taste so good after I learned that. Then, as a younger adult out to dinner with friends, I was challenged to eat some Escargo – I took the challenge, and I enjoyed it.
Optional 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 for surviving the week without having lost friends, given my political position and need to stand up and say what I felt – on social media, not so much in person, mainly because I’ve been keeping to myself most of the time. It feels necessary to withdraw for awhile. I am looking forward to, or wishing for, more sanity in this world – in the week coming up would be wonderful, but I could make it until the week after if necessary. Wondering if the government could now get over the “shock and awe” part of starting off and settle down in a quieter, better thought out manner. Hoping.
And now, a shameless advertisement for myself, for my ink arts. I have set up a Facebook page, but then I moved on to set up a WordPress blog because the Facebook page felt cumbersome. I’d love it if you’d visit the new blog, take a look at what I have to offer, and if you’d like, contact me about purchasing something. The address for that blog is http://inkarts.wordpress.com. Come on over!
