Share Your World – 10/1/19

Melanie said it – how did it get to be October already?!  As we get older and time gets more precious, it seems to move faster and faster. Yet those things I said I had to do last week, have not yet been done – think I’ll blame it on time moving faster than I do. Now, to share my world one more time.

If confronted with a violent crime against a single individual in progress (severe beating, rape, assault) do you try to do something about it (phone authorities or confront the criminal, stop the crime) or do you figure it’s none of your business and walk or drive on by?  Worse (to me) would you record the crime for social media use without doing anything else?  I would have to do something – how could anyone just pass on by without some kind of intervention and assistance? I know that happens, but I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t try to help. That’s one of the best things about cell phones – the ability to call 911 immediately.  Also women’s heavy purses – a weapon readily available.

Okay now we got the heavy stuff out of the way, let’s get to some less stressful questions.

If someone asked to be your apprentice and learn all that you know, what would you teach them? The thing I do best, I guess – that is, nothing. Sit quietly – read, play games, study nature through the window, think about what you should do but reject the word should and continue to do nothing.

First think of a product. Now, what would be the absolute worst brand name for one of those products? Artery Cloggers (fast food), Salt Blocks (instant ramen soups), Preserve-Your-Body (processed foods). Yeah, I know – weak attempts, right?

What ridiculous and untrue, yet slightly plausible, theories can you come up with for the cause of common ailments like headaches or cavities? Headaches are caused by too much thinking – it exhausts the brain, which causes the brain to rebel, kicking and screaming, trying to pound its way out. Cavities are caused by brushing your teeth too enthusiastically or too frequently – wearing off the surfaces and opening them to the entry of little cavity makers.


If you’d like to, please share a photo or an example of gratitude that you have.  Thanks!  🙂

    I think the question about what you’d teach someone would be a great blog post.

  3. Thanks so much for Sharing Your World, Carol!! I really enjoyed your answers… and you did well on the “product names” answer. Those things would be better with a little bit of truth in advertising, wouldn’t they? Your photos? Priceless. You live in a beautiful world sweetie! ❤

    Your photos all made me smile. 🙂 I love your answer to the second question. I think you’d make a great teacher and suspect I’d be a good apprentice because those are good things to learn.

    Sadly, there’s been reports of people doing nothing in those dire situations because they didn’t want to get involved. But, then there are other reports of heroic actions and selflessness to aid those in emergency situations. I like the latter. I think your product name ideas are spot-on! I’d probably like to teach someone the importance of kindness and how to discern between authenticity and imitation when dealing with others. Not sure how to do that….but that’s what I’d LIKE to teach! xoxox

    Now that the question has been raised, I wonder what I’d teach an apprentice. I like your answer. I’m good at doing nothing, with purpose and poise. Your fuzzy friends look like they’re perfectly at home with you. And I like your full pantry. Very important to be grateful about that.

    ‘Salt Blocks’–how spot on is that?! Where’s the other kitty–being elusive? Carol–you and me both with gratitude. I feel so secure when my pantry is full. Good answers, all.

    re Time Flying: It’s dawned on me that if I want to be working in 2020, I need to start job searching NOW… but I am soooo not ready for that!!

    Love the pics of your friends & fur-kids… and full pantry!

    Just got “sorry this comment could not be posted.” wth, wp??

    I love your theories on headaches and cavities. I also think Salt Blocks is particularly apt. Happy Tuesday!!
