Share Your World is presented by the lovely Melanie from Sparks of a Combustible Mind.
The questions this week:
Where do you feel most at home? Please be more specific than “at home, doh” please. It could be a room in your home, a person, a location… 😝 😁 😇
I feel most at home surrounded by these mountains I am fortunate to live within. They are the connection I share with my ancestors. They are a small portion of the earth still somewhat intact. This place has the power to lower my blood pressure and calm my soul.
Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car? 🐎 🚗 🚲
My preference would be to walk. With my knees starting to feel the effects of arthritis, bike riding is becoming less appealing. I have never actually ridden a horse so I cannot speak to that. I suppose that leaves me with driving a car.
What song would you sing on “Karoke Night” (if you were forced to do so)? 🎤 🎶 🎻🎷🎺🎸🎵🎹
”Black Velvet”. It is one of the few songs I can actually pull off. I am not a gifted singer by any stretch of the imagination.
University or life experience, which do you feel best prepares you for life? 🎓
I think they both prepare us in different ways. I grew up with some of the smartest people I ever knew who were never afforded a college education. Their life experience and knowledge of the natural world were all gained through experience and reading. They knew how to survive in even the worst of circumstances. University education hopefully gives access to a broader scope of the world and teaches discipline and the value of reading and research. Unfortunately, the cost makes it almost unreachable for many.
An Attitude of Gratitude
