Share Your World Sunday Week #32

Here we are finding ourselves looking right into Sunday morning and another [deep male voice over] ..episode of……Share Your World Week(ly)!Brought To You By This Week and Every Week our Beloved Cee.

If you’d like to join us for this crazy fun you will find this week’s questions and the past 31 weeks at Cee’s blog which can be found at:




  • 1. Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?

Absolutely without any doubts, regrets, or looking back I would want a content life with the assurance that I will be surrounded by my family & friends. I’ve never been one for too much excitement in my life maybe even bordering on boring. But as I have grown older and wiser I know what comes with the trappings of a Life in the Fast Lane. No thank you. All these feelings are withstanding anything to do with having a chronic illness. It’s just who I am. Give me a great book, a comfy chair with some plump pillows, my husband Bear, and our family safe; on any Saturday night and I’ll be as happy as any camper. Honestly? Our last big date night was when we went to see Peter Yarrow from Peter Paul & Mary – the folk music trio most famous for hits like “Puff The Magic Dragon” and “I’m leaving On a Jet Plane”.  It was a fabulous evening climaxed by being invited with the entire audience to the stage to sing Puff with Peter and son Chris. Because we live in a fairly small town there could not have been more than a dozen men, women, children, and one baby up on that stage and it was clearly the highlight of my year. So unless you also happen to be a folk music enthusiast I’m willing to think that my life looks pretty laid back to you. And you’d be right. And you’d also be right that I like it this way.

  • 2. Would you like to be famous? In what way

Wait! ……Am I not now,  famous? 

Nah…    Unless I was to write MY Pulitzer I’m not interested


  • 3. If you could cure one disease, what would that be?

This is such a tough one. There are so many, for many reasons personally that I could name, but I will choose Alzheimers and Dementia because it takes away the person’s memories. Without our memories we don’t have much to hold on to. I just happen to believe from what I have witnessed that our memories are what’s unique to ourselves, the very substances that keep us motivated. Our memories are vital to our own well-being. It’s our memories that can help keep us mentally fit.

  • 4.If you were invisible, where would you go?

Since we are pretending here lets pretend; I have a “good” Baroness that sits on my right shoulder, and a” bad” Baroness that sits on my left. The bad Baroness becomes invisible and she takes herself into the most unique clothing boutiques that specialize in vintage clothing. I’d play dress-up with no concern about money, size, or figure. At daybreak just before the sun would rise I’d make quick like a bunny and clean -up and scamper out before I was spotted by anyone.

The good Baroness does not go into her family’s room’s invisible, ever. She knows that the information snooped is information that can cause worry and pain. Instead, she would choose to be able to make herself invisible so that she could ride bareback down the sandy beaches with nothing covering herself but her thick hip length hair.    Just once!
