Share Your World – 9/29/20

I haven’t done this for awhile, but this seems like a good morning to jump right in and play with Melanie and her friends.

Where do you feel most at home?  Please be more specific than “at home, doh” please. It could be a room in your home, a person, a location…  😝 😁 😇

There are a few places in my home I feel “most at home” – my morning room, my family room, my front deck. But when I read this question, I think outside my home – what other places make me feel most “at home” – most comfortable. That would have to be the ocean, oceanside, where I can hear, feel, smell, the ocean and see the sandy beaches. One of the Great Lakes might work too – they’re big enough to make ocean-type waves lapping on the shoreline. Such a comforting sound.

Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car?  🐎  🚗 🚲 If we’re just talking druther, I’d say ride a horse – in reality, I’ve only ridden a horse a couple of times in my life, not enough to be comfortable. But oh I would so love to be able to ride. If I must answer with some sense of reality, then it would be drive a car. Riding a bike was good when I was young – now I’m not all that comfortable with my sense of balance.

What song would you sing on “Karoke Night” (if you were forced to do so)?  🎤 🎶 🎻🎷🎺🎸🎵🎹 Oh, you really do not want to be exposed to my “singing”. Really, you do not!  But if I could sing, the song I would love to be able to sing well would be “Hallelujah” – I love that song.

University or life experience, which do you feel best prepares you for life?  🎓 I think life experience best prepares us. University can fill our brains with knowledge useful in earning a living so you can have a life, but I believe lessons most often remembered are those we’ve gained through first-hand experience.

IT’S AN ATTITUDE – GRATITUDE!  (Participation Always Optional Of Course)

What are you grateful for? Getting up this morning to watch the sun come over the hills behind me, the golden glow of early morning. This time of the year, the sun comes up much further south in the eastern sky, so the shadows it casts are not the same as during other times of the year. I am grateful for fall and its colors, the feel of its air, the calmness the season seems to provide, most of the time. I am grateful for my furry kids, my not furry adult kids, my friends. My life.

  1. Carol — My favorite rendition of “Hallelujah” is done by K.D. Lang. She knocks it out of the park!

  2. Thank you Carol for Sharing Your World! Great answers to all the questions, and you’re perhaps the first to ‘get’ that home question as I meant it. But it’s all about perception, isn’t it and there are no ‘right’ answers to SYW questions, it’s the mix I enjoy the most!

    My horse/bike/car answer is nearly identical to yours! Except my balance is fine, it’s my bad knees that make bicycles a no-go. Everyone thinks biking is good for bad knees but it’s actually the first activity where mine stopped working. Cycling 10 miles home with only one leg was an interesting experience… not as hard as you might expect.

    Did you see Kate McKinnon perform Hallelujah on SNL the Sat after Cheeto was elected? It was extremely moving.

    No I didn’t see Kate McKinnon, but I have that song done by several artists.

    I like that you would consider living near our Great Lakes–hey, we could be neighbors! Although, oh my goodness, we are living smack dab in the middle of Republican world, so you might not be happy…just sayin’….

    You’re the person who did alcohol inks, yes? If you send me your email address (here, or via my “contact me” form or directly to effini@yahoo.com) I’ll forward an email from Art Supply Warehouse who is hosting a bunch of low cost virtual courses where the supplies (which they will ship) are worth FAR more than the class price. The abstract landscape w/inks class is $25 and providing $50 of products. Other classes are $5 or $10 and sending product sample packs from vendors. The last I took one of those, we got about $100 in product samples!!
