SHARING THE WORLD – Marilyn Armstrong

Share Your World 9-23-19

It has been a bumpy ride recently. The good news is that we are getting 2/3 of the house fixed and with a little luck, the last piece in the spring, The bad news? The weather is weird. Instead of getting colder, it’s getting warmer.

Chipping Sparrow

The bird feeders are back up and the birds are visiting. Not as many as last year, but it has just begun, As the year progresses, we’ll have a better idea of how many bids we’ll have. Right now, I’m seeing a lot of Titmice, Nuthatches, a few winter-colored finches, two different woodpeckers. They are still very shy. They get less shy as the season progresses and they are more familiar with us.

QUESTIONS:

When was the last time you face palmed?

I honestly have no idea. Not recently for sure.

If there were commandments for the modern-day world, what should (could, would) some of them be?  Get creative!

Greed is NOT good. It is the single destroyer of the best parts of our world and always has been. Always will be. If you are rich, can you ever be rich enough? When does the rest of the world get a shot at a decent life? How much is your greed killing us all off?

Greed is destruction and it is ugly. Take what you need and leave the rest. We all need and deserve a decent life. No one needs billions. Moreover, whether you have one or two billion is not going to make you more or less happy!

What did you Google last?

Bottlebrush. Mine wore out and I need a new one. Since then I googled “52 mm lens cap” because I need one. Exciting, eh?

When is censorship warranted? Ever?

I think spouting hatred should not be legal. But I understand those who disagree. It IS illegal in many other democracies for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that inflammatory language tends to wind up with inflamed people. Rioting. Lynching. Murder. Encouraging it has not won us any friends, either.

But, as I said, you don’t have to agree with me. That’s just how I feel about it.

Gratitude is an attitude.

I agree. I also think that not everything we feel is appropriate for posting. Some of it is private and personal. I actually have a good deal for which to be grateful but it is not (in my opinion) suitable for sharing. Sorry.

  4. Thanks Marilyn for Sharing Your World. I agree fully that over-sharing might be as bad as under-sharing. And some things are indeed private, no need to apologize for it. 🙂 Great thoughts though! Thanks! 😀

  5. Interesting questions and answers. I’m with you on greed. Its poison.
    Glad to hear you’re getting the work done on the house, and that the birds are back. It must be good to see them again. 🙂

  6. Good post.

    My commandments:
    Everyone who is retired should find 2 hours of volunteer work a week – helping others feels good.
    The government will establish free health centers all over the country – people will learn to eat healthier (and reduce national obesity) and to build exercise into their day. Each person will have a wellness mentor who helps them meet weekly goals – these will be volunteers who have been successful in similar circumstances.
