Share Your World – August 28, 2017

I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date – and I really have no excuse at all. Sorry, that’s just how it is. Anyway, I’m here now, all ready to share a little more of my world with Cee’s questions.

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you? Well – a day spent walking on the beach with my kids, friends, my furry girls. Any day spent with my kids.

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world….. Repeat above answer. My favorite place in the world is with people, furry and not, that I love.

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)? Well, now, this is one I really can’t answer. It’s hard to have a “best” friend when you attend between four and eight schools in a year. I had a couple of them whose dads did the same work mine did, which meant sometimes they worked on the same jobs and we had time together – but I don’t know that they were there before I was 12. Sometimes I regret that, but other times I do not – I think traveling as much as we did, living in so many different places, broadened my horizons.

What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Gotta confess to not having a lot of inspiration this past week. We have been dealing with heavy smoke from wildfires that are all over the western side of the country, much more than we normally get for a much longer period than was normal. The south is flooding, disrupting the lives of thousands, lives which may never return to what they were, never be the same again. We have a political climate that must certainly have our forefathers, those immigrants that formed this country, sighing in dismay. It’s hard to be inspired. So I’ve been reading travel guides, thinking that since life as I know it may not be the same sooner than I’d like, maybe it’s time to blow the budget and go experience some fantasy for awhile. We shall see.

In the meantime, I hope your days are filled with enough!

    Travel sounds great!
    We are heading out in one week. I hope the wildfires calm down for everyone. And the flooding. And the politics.
    Okay, so I guess we’re back to leaving on a jet plane…

    There are so many fires here in the PacNW it’s unbelievable. Stay healthy.

    Perfect day: floating in a warm pool, alternating between naps and cocktails, then petting furry animals (preferably mine but….)
    Fav place: I’m inclined to say “any warm beach” but since I have many near me and rarely go, i guess the real answer is “my bed”.
    Childhood friend: Karen, my next door neighbor. We acted like Lisa (across the street) was a BFF too but she was actually evil.
    Inspiration: The weird Mexican “little person” movies and the nice guy I met at the Circus of Freaks event at a bar. The event was, to me, a complete fail but there were nice people. Also the passion of the person who’s talked me into checking out an EST/Landmark intro seminar tomorrow. I have no idea if it’s for me (prob not) but it was really inspiring to watch an intelligent person be soooo passionate and really really really wanting me to feel that way too.

    Well, I’m late to the party as well. I remember a girl named Cindy as a close friend when I was in first and second grade. No idea where she is now! Social media has allowed me to reconnect with some high school friends, which I find fun. I agree, the snapshot of our country right now is not pretty. And, we have Irma to contend with in the southeast. Not sure how much more we, as a nation, will be able to handle. And then there’s the crazy wildcard in North Korea who could unleash unspeakable destruction. But, then I see the outpouring of selflessness and generosity in photos that renew my faith in the human race. Sometimes I think if the *news* would stop whipping people up into such a frenzy over every little thing, our social climate would be better. I pray for an end to the northwest fires and that your skies will clear soon. Take care. xoxox
