WORLD SHARING AS THE GLOBE SPINS AND SPINS AND SPINS

Share Your World – With A Twist 8-11-2020

The Harry Potter – Part 1

I’ve read all the books AND seen all the movies … but honestly I don’t remember what thing was in which book or movie. There have been many books since Harry Potter came out, so essentially, they’ve formed a collective “lump” of Harry Potterish data. If I don’t get any answers correct, blame those other intervening books which have distracted me from the Harry and the gang.

Share Your World Meets Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Because of the state-wide quarantines many of the local SPCA’s are having an influx of animals. You have decided that you would love to have a new pet. Would you go the normal wizardry route and pick an owl, a cat, or a toad? Or would you become a more eccentric wizard (like Hagrid, the games keeper) and seek out a three-headed dog, a dragon, or a unicorn? Please explain your answer.

Capturing the unicorn

Unicorn, absolutely. Preferably one in full color with a lot of magic!

Neville Longbottom was gifted a Remembrall. This was a glass ball that would assist you in maintaining memories of things that you often forget. What would you want your Remembrall to help you remember?

I would like it to remind me why I went into the kitchen and what I intended to do while I was there.

Professor Dumbledore gave Harry Potter an invisibility cloak that Dumbledore said was from Harry’s father. Now, you have inherited a cloak with similar powers. Would you use it? When?

Probably not. At our age, we are invisible anyway.

While cleaning your attic, you have discovered the Mirror of Erised. (“Erised” is “desire” spelled backwards, as if reflected in a mirror) The Mirror of Erised is a magical mirror, which, according to Professor Dumbledore, when you gaze into it, it shows the “deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts.” You have chosen to look in the mirror. What do you see?

Something that will make my arthritis better so I can do things … like walk! I’m long past the desperate desire stage of life. I just want enough money to maintain the house and to NOT be in pain. And may I please extend that to all my friends and loved ones!


Moving on to the more “normal” (whatever that means) world sharing section, from the inimitable Melanie.

Welcome to Share Your World – Part 2

Would You Rather Live 120 Years That Are Comfortable But Boring, Or Live Half As Long, But Have An Exciting Adventure Packed Life?

I’ve already done exciting. Now I’d like some peaceful. And I don’t see why it has to be one or the other. You can do both and I think most of us do.

What’s Something That Overwhelms You?

The incredible stupidity of my fellow citizens.

What Do or DID You Take For Granted?

That we couldn’t be stupid enough to actually elect Trump. Having elected him, actually worrying that he might get re-elected? If we as a nation so extraordinarily stupid, we probably deserve this moron.

Please feel free to share some gratitude moments or thoughts you’ve had recently.  This section is entirely optional.

The orange Cardinal came back and let me take his picture. It doesn’t sound like much, but these days? That’S a big deal. Life is not what it used to be.

  1. I also got a big shock when Trump was elected. I thought he was the joke candidate (we have those in the UK!).

  2. ” At our age, we are invisible anyway.” You need to make more noise! Thanks for trying out the Potter questions. Stay safe.

    • Old people get ignored. Sometimes, this isn’t a bad thing. We can occasionally “fly under the radar.” But a lot of times, if, as an old person you complain or make noise, no one takes you seriously because you have that lifelong condition called “old.” We get suddenly very important around election time, but otherwise? They don’t make TV shows for us, most movies are made for kids or nearly kids as if older people don’t spend money, don’t have any money, aren’t worth spending any effort on. Which means, of course, that we don’t consume the material that is produced because it isn’t interesting. Unless I have a real issue, making noise is more trouble than it’s worth. That’s just the reality … and if you are old and not white, it’s even worse.

  3. Thanks Marilyn for Sharing Your World! I know your time and energy are precious and it’s all the more heartening that you carry on regardless. That orange cardinal photo is GORGEOUS! Wow! I never knew there were such birds! I must, once again, thank you sincerely for sharing your beautiful photography. How much grayer the world would be without those bright windows to look forward to! 🙂

    • The orange Cardinal isn’t a regular bird. He’s a bird that should be red, but somehow came out orange. Apparently this happens fairly often and there are a lot of pictures of birds with strange colors on the Cornell University bird site. I feel kind of lucky to have gotten one in my own backyard. He was back this morning. I think he lives in one of our many trees. I don’t think this odd coloration is inherited, either. I’ve been checking around and it seems to be something mom ate or something that occurred while the baby bird was in the egg. But I’d love to have my own flock of orange Cardinals.
