Share Your (a little bit about you) World Sunday Week # 23

Cee says on this weeks Share Your World Sunday; “It sure was fun learning about all of us”

I am definitely in agreement here with her. This is a fabulous experiment in human nature and I find it quite fascinating. The variant responses are always creative, honest and fun. I am enjoying this exercise in ways I normally would not. I find this utterly intriguing.

I’d like to say to Cee how grateful I am for her  in ways that are more personal than is appropriate here. But let it be known that if you are need of an alternative treatment modality Cee may very well be the practitioner you are looking for. Even long distance.. Thank you Cee for all your exhaustive but rewarding and oddly enough energizing work you do. ~ Hugs Girl!

To my fellow and sister weekly Share Your World Sunday participants; Thank you for sharing with me/us, it’s not always easy to speak of things that may make us feel vulnerable. I am appreciating so much the trust I am building with each participant here and off on our own blogs. I look forward to this week, next week and into the year. Just Imagine!

If You would like to jin in the fun you may find this information,  other participants answers, and past weeks questions and answers here at Cee’s blog: http://ceeslifephotographyblog.wordpress.com/2012/05/12/share-your-world-week-23/

This Weeks questions and answers~

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?

Oh… Yes, sadly & happily at the same time I have become quite adept at doing nothing for long stretches of time. Like Cee I too have been forced by medical issues into not having the freedom of activity with no time limits. The body says no before the mind. However there is an awesome aspect of this that has taught me to become comfortable with my own company, doing nothing but being alone with my own thoughts. I recall a time when our daughters were young that I would have given almost anything for even enough quiet time to go to the bathroom alone. It’s best you be careful what you wish for?

To read about a very interesting experiment  about Doing Nothing:

  •   If you could inherit a vacation home anywhere in the world in which you could spend two months a year, where would it be?

I would like a vacation home on the Oregon Coast. I’ll not state exactly where because I am hoping that our lovely little coastal towns will remain just that. Little & Lovely. I’d be crushed if our little cove’s of beach towns all soon began to run into one another; being annexed to one larger town, after another, just like the coast of California. I’ll keep this beauty as a secret as long as I can.

      • If you were instantly able to play one musical instrument perfectly that you never have played before, what would it be?.

I have always sort of picked at the guitar, know some very basic chords. However it is on my bucket list to actually learn to play it, refresh the skill of reading music. I would love to be able to express myself through the strings on an old well used acoustic guitar. I also would like to learn how to play the Pan Flute, I am calmed instantly by its willowy instrumental song. It soothes my soul.

  • Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers

I’d have great issue with myself if there was a clause saying the money was meant for my own use. I would be selfish enough though to want a bit to help our two daughter’s buy homes. Not the entire purchase, just some help with a down. The rest I would rush to turn over to many different children’s charities. Charities that help support children who have been victims of abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment. If possible I’d rather prefer to also keep the monies local. It’s much easier keeping an eye on the management of donations when the receiver’s are local. I take great issue with charities that use the largest percentage (some up to 87 %) of donations for administrative expenditures. That’s not what my donations are intended for. Gosh, thanks for also listening to me up on my soapbox.

Until next week, have a good one~

SHARE YOUR WORLD SUNDAY 3/12/2012

OKAY IT’S REALLY MONDAY. i’M A BIT TARDY.

1. Who was your favorite Teacher – what grade and why?

Mr Tingen, my 7th grade home room teacher in Jr High School. I love this man to this day for the world of education he encouraged me to open my mind to. The fact my Education could come from other sources than from just text books was a fabulous thing to learn as a tween.. The world of science beyond mesmerizing the elements table, this was news to me. And the world of mathematics? Fantastic. That equations can make actual musical sounds was welcome and this is the kind of world he opened up for me.

   2.  What do you like most about your home?

My art room.  Although this room has yet to become my dream in terms of design and function ut was one of the attractive things I fell in love with. In our prior home I had a room, but it was up 14 stairs, alone and separate from the going ons of my family and home. I soon found I had dragged most of my entire stash of supplies and tools, one by one down to first the dining room table, then spread to behind the sofa, and before my husband knew it they had multiplied into the living room coffee table.

My new room is cute, has incredible natural light and has a pair of sweet French doors that closes it off as it sits just outside my dining room.

  3. If you were forced to change the name of your blog what would you change it to?

  Tj’s World? (shoulders shrug)  I just don’t know.

 4.      If a movie was made based on your life, what actor/actress would play you?

Barbara Streisand. Is that just too cheeky of me?
