With this week’s Share Your World, Cee (of Cee’s Photography) has added a disclaimer:
With your answers, please remember we are in the SYW world, which may not always match our reality.
What would you ask for if a genie granted you three wishes? This one is easy as I’ve been thinking about it more or less all week. The first thing I would ask for is three additional wishes. Three for me and three for the world. And I think I could wish away all the world’s problems with one wish only, that everyone treat everyone else with respect. Pure and simple. Maybe that, alone, wouldn’t rid us of hunger but it sure would go a far way in containing it. If you respected someone, would you stand by and watch them starve? Maybe I’m being simplistic or naive but, as Cee says, the SYW world may not always match our reality. Also, if we’re wishing in the SYW world, I would like larger hands!
What experiences are most meaningful to you? To me? When Lynn finally caved and said “All right, already. I’ll marry you!” That was pretty darn meaningful. Usually, though, it is the small, unexpected gesture that is the most meaningful.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I think I answered something like this once before. I wanted to be a doctor, then realized there was blood involved. I’ve always had dreams of being someone famous in the arts- specifically acting, directing, or writing. But I got sidetracked at an early age by a lack of support and no guts!
Complete this sentence: The best day of my life was…. Well, actually, there are two. Both involve Lynn. One was when we married. The other was a night we spent at Cowboy Inn, a ramshackle motel in the middle of nowhere Arizona, not too far from Lake Charles and Monument Valley.The rooms were all cowboy themed and looked like they had not been updated, except for indoor plumbing, since the west was won. In the middle of the night, Lynn got up to go to the bathroom and swore she heard Elvis singing. That started us on a laughing jag that went on for a good hour at about 3 or 4 in the morning and I’m sure, if there were other motel guests that night, they must have complained.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I’m grateful we took the day off Thursday and drove into Death Valley for the super blooms. The hype and the photoshopped images on the internet are much better than the reality. But it was still beautiful to see. We ran out of light just as we found the perfect spot for photos and hope to make it back out there this week. But they are very sensitive flowers and could be gone if it gets too hot during the week. So, fingers crossed. (I believe you can click on any of these photos to see a larger image, if you wish!)
