It’s March. The weather keeps reminding me it’s March – Mother Nature likes to display all of her powers and talents in March. Right now, for this minute at least, it’s snowing. It will amount to nothing, because it’s March. In another minute or two, the sun could be peeking through. Or the snow could become rain. It’s a matter of wait and see. Whatever it is, I will be staying inside today, and for now, I’ll be sharing with Cee, and anyone else who cares to stop by.
Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)? To my knowledge, no. I suspect my first and middle name were simply what was popular when I was born. My maiden surname was Boe, which made me Carol Boe – in my youth, the older generation liked to be “funny”, by asking if I was related to Clara Bow. Now I see puzzled looks on many of your faces – Clara Bow was a big star in silent films. That pretty much dates me, doesn’t it?
Music or silence while working? For me, silence. I often think about turning some music on, but I rarely do. Because. Silence is a good thing.
If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be? Oh gosh. Could we make this special place some place I’d actually remember, unlike my “safe” places? But what on earth would my special possessions be anyway, since the things I’d be most likely to name have already been eliminated? I guess, for now, my inks and inking supplies. Maybe a couple of my knick knack things – perhaps the figurines of Don Quixote, one is by Nao and the other a funky figure my daughter brought back from Mexico several years ago, and maybe a couple of my cat figurines. This question is telling me I have a whole lot of stuff cluttering this house that isn’t that important to me, so why is it so hard for me to get rid of it?
The Never List: What are things you know you never will do? I will never:
1. Go skiing
2. Go bungee jumping
3. Jump out of a plane or helicopter
4. climb in a barrel to go over a waterfall – for that matter, go over a waterfall at all
5. Climb Mount Everest
6. Visit Antarctica – it’s snowy and cold there. And pieces keep breaking off into the ocean.
7. Visit Russia.
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 the couple of days my son spent with me on his return from Ecuador, before he left for southern California to start a new phase of his life. I am grateful for the few little blooms that are appearing, consoling me when Mother Nature sprinkles cold white flakes all over us. I am looking forward to more signs of spring, more sunshine days. I am grateful for and looking forward to each breath that I draw and my place on earth.
