I’m just posting the Share Your World today, to keep to my posting schedule. I’ve been a bit down with some kind of bug over the weekend, so has the SO a day later, after he had laughed about me. Serves him right. 😛 It wasn’t all that bad, we were just a bit tired, with a few tweaks and aches in the stomach (not from overeating). That’s why there was no Woofy Weekend, although we did have some lovely walks in the sunshine. Nothing going on with Moocy Monday either. I felt too blah to write anyway. However, I did a fair amount of plotting and thinking for that fabled novel that always comes up in my plans, but only has scenes, ideas, and one chapter written so far. Things do fall in place though, so maybe I’ll actually manage to write another chapter. At that pace, this elusive thing will be finished when I’m 90. But who cares as long as writing it is fun, right? Who knew that coming up with a good conflict is so difficult?
Anyway, here’s Share Your World Week 14:
What type of music relaxes you the most or do you prefer silence?
I find rock music the most relaxing. Head banging my brain out relaxes me like nothing else. Depending on my mood, this can be anything from Queen to Led Zeppelin, or ACDC. When I’m alone, I’m known to hop around madly, too. At calmer times, I’m listening to The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits… sometimes to classical music. When I write I like it softer… Genesis, Sting, sometimes Santana… I’m not so much into modern stuff, can you tell? When I work, or study and need to concentrate, I prefer silence. Likewise when I’m sad, or very, very stressed out. There needs to be a quiet phase before the head banging can start. 😉
Show us a two of your favorites photographs? Explain why they are your favorite. If you are not a photographer, think of a two favorite scenes in your life and tell us about them.
Favourite scenes would be the SO, the dog-of-the-time, and me going on outdoors adventures, preferrably in Canada. There are pictures, but not the digital kind, and I haven’t scanned them in. When we lived in western Canada, we used to go canoeing almost every weekend, starting out Friday evening, returning Sunday night. These were good times. I loved it, I miss it.
What is your favorite tradition? (family tradition, church tradition, whatever)
Colouring/painting Easter eggs. I always loved to do that, but haven’t done it in a long while. There are some lovely memories of doing this with friends and their kids.
If you could go back and talk to yourself at age 18 what advice would you give yourself? Or if you are younger than 25 what words of wisdom would you like to tell yourself at age 50?
Grow an exoskeleton. I’ve been far too vulnerable as a young person, and my insecurities will likely go with me to the grave.
