My Tiny World

Today I decided to participate in Melanie B Cee’s Share Your Heartfelt World 2-11-19 challenge, but I am skipping the romantic questions.


What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend?

That depends, when it is football season, then my answer would be watching football.  Now that I am older and retired, I don’t get out that much, so my weekends are not that much different from my weekdays.  I enjoy writing every day, it is kind of like performing some sort of a civic duty for me.  It makes me feel good when I know that I have written something significant.

Who do you admire most in the world?

I admire water! Water is beautiful and peaceful.  How could anybody take a shower without water?  Even up in space when an astronaut wants to take a shower, they step into a stall and close the door and turn on the water.  They then get themselves wet and wash up just like on Earth, however, due to weightlessness, the water droplets and soap don’t flow downwards into a drain, they float about.  I enjoy drinking water, swimming in water at the beach or in a pool, not so much in a lake, unless it has a sandy bottom as I don’t enjoy getting mud on my feet.  How would you ever be able to wash your clothes or flush a toilet without water?

What do you regret not doing?

I wish that I would have learned how to play an instrument, or have taken singing more seriously and I regret that I am not a good dancer.

If you see a puddle on the ground, do you walk around it or over/in it?

When I was a kid, I might have splashed around in it and had fun, but when you get to my age getting messy is no longer fun, so I would try to walk around it or step over it.

  1. Getting messy is fun! I have a placard from some cat (named Garfield) who tells me:
    Creativity is not a Pretty Sight!

    Being creative, feeling what it’s like to splash in puddles, dancing in the rain, watching kids live in a made-up world … this is life! This is living!
    Be messy! Splash that puddle!

      1. I’m an Earth Dog, which makes me 0 or 60 or 120 – the pic was only a few years ago, when I used to do a lot of trekking (I’d love to walk the Heysen Trail, but still recuperating from a damaged spine … one day).

  2. “How would you ever be able to wash your clothes or flush a toilet without water?” You wouldn’t have worry about washing clothes or flushing toilets without water, because without water, you’d be dead. ☠️
