Share Your World – October 26, 2020

C7D018A9-43FB-4E9D-B21D-A8E1035F7F25Melanie has her neighborhood over at  Sparks of a Combustible Mind all decked out in Halloween decor. It was so festive I thought I would play along and Share My World today.

Here are the questions:

What’s the tallest building you’ve been to the top of?

First let me say I am not a fan of heights. Especially manmade heights. I trust Mother Nature a lot more than mankind. So, I suppose the tallest building was the Montreal Tower (574 ft) in the Olympic Village. The second highest would have been the Skylon Tower (520 ft) at Niagara Falls (it towers 764 ft above the base of the falls). I do not like heights so these were big steps for me.

What do you do to keep fit?

Normally I walk, but I have been lethargic and uninspired during Covid.

What’s your jack-o-lantern carved to look like?

Living WAY OUT in the country and in quarantine we have no jack-o-lantern. 🎃 But if I had one it would be a most traditional face – not a new age face.

Do you have hope or have you lost it?

I always have hope. I could not live without it. Hope has saved me so many times in my life.


Feel free to share something you’re grateful for!  Images and photos or poems, essays or free writing (stream of consciousness) pieces are all acceptable!  AND you don’t have to do this part, it’s always optional!

Please do not say you have nothing to be grateful for when a tree bursts with autumn color just outside your window.  Remember that friend you chatted with today? What a gift they are in these difficult times. Did you ever notice how constant the skies and the stars are? I still gaze at the same stars my mother saw when she was a little girl.

Today I am especially grateful for this blogging community.

  1. I, too, am grateful for the blogging community. Like you I used to walk more, but during this pandemic I’m walking less BUT connecting more via the blogosphere. It gives me hope.

  2. You got me thinking about tall buildings I have been in. Turns out the highest was the Petronas Twin Towers, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They are 452 metres tall, but the public viewing platform called the Skybridge is at just 170 metres, or 558 feet. So the Berlin TV tower comes first for me, with a height of 203 metres, or 666 feet.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. It was an interesting question to consider, Pete. My husband went to the top of the World Trade Center before 9/11. That would have been 1,776 ft.

  3. Thanks Maggie for Sharing Your World! A lot of folks have a fear of heights, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. You were brave indeed to go to those places! I like the traditional jack-o-lantern more than modern designs, but both can be beautiful. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on that with us! Have a peaceful week!

  4. Tall building, Washington Monument. I don’t like heights even though heights were part of being a stagehand. And of course being a paratrooper.
    I so miss seeing the stars I saw years ago. Now I live too close to a large metro area and the stars are no longer visible. As for Hope, like the song says ‘You gotta have hope’.
    Hope you have a good week. Stay safe, Maggie.

    1. I try to face my fears as I can, but so e are too much. The stars are one of life’s calming influences to me, Don. And hope, well, sometimes it is all we have. Thank you for your well wishes.
