Share Your World – October 30, 2017

Where do you eat breakfast?

Like so many others, with my laptop, my English muffin with some fruit spread or jam on it … and coffee. I almost never drop the jam into the keyboard these days.

I’ve really improved eating skills. And I can always get a dog to lick my fingers clean.

Too much information?

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want to have an evening with?

Garry will do nicely.

Seriously, I have absolutely no interest in celebrities or even otherwise famous people. I’m really happy being me with mine. Boring? Probably. But peaceful, too.

If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?

A Triffid. Then I could take over the world while still being a plant. Does it get better than that? I don’t think so.

More realistically? I really don’t want to be a plant.

If I had no choice, maybe a giant sequoia. But I don’t like the idea of being rooted.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I was totally thrilled at figuring out that I could charge my phone enough to use it by plugging it into one of the laptops. And when I saw the pie-chart on GEDmatch and realized I finally understood what they were talking about, that was even better.

I get excited about learning. Learning new things, especially things that are difficult and require mental effort are inspiring. Someone — well, more than one someone — suggested I would have been a good academic. Probably, but I was tired of school before I even graduated with my B.A., so academics were not happening for me. I tried to go for a masters — three times in fact — and I couldn’t do it. I could not sit in a classroom anymore. Instead, studying strange science stuff has become a hobby.


  1. Yeah…learning now, in my retirement, is much more exciting and fulfilling than it ever was in school. My kids all tell me it will keep me young…unless I will not stay off that cliff they told me not to walk out onto!


    • I have had to give up cliff and rocks-in-the-ocean walking. I have lost my sure-footedness. I used to be able to hop from rock to rock and never felt likely to slip. The sure-footedness is gone and it annoys me that I can’t get OUT there and feel like part of the rocks and waves. Oh well.


    • I’m sure I would have liked it … if I hadn’t gotten so tired of school. I just didn’t want to sit through another class and it didn’t matter what kind of class. I had always been good in school, but once I was out of school, I really didn’t want to go back. For the next five years, I kept trying … but I just couldn’t. I didn’t want any more school. At least I got through the B.A.!
