It’s time for Share Your World.  You can find directions to the challenge here.

This week’s questions:

  1. You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?
  2. If you could inherit a vacation home anywhere in the world in which you could spend two months a year, where would it be?
  3. If you were instantly able to play one musical instrument perfectly that you never have played before, what would it be?
  4. Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers?

Here are my answers:


I enjoy appreciating in Cee’s Share Your World.   You can, too by following her instructions and reading what everyone else has to say.  It’s a lot of fun.

Here are this week’s questions and my answers: (more…)

I’m late with my Share Your World entries because I looked at the questions and thought they were too hard.  I’ve had to chew them over.  Now I’m going out to look at everyone’s to see if they found them as challenging as I did.

WARNING!  I just bought Cee two new books of questions.  (more…)

Cee reminds me that I forgot to do Share Your World last week, and this week’s is ready.  So without further ado, here are two week’s worth of answers to share with all my friends.

If you haven’t contributed to Share Your World, please do.  It’s a blast.  The questions can be challenging, or just plain fun to answer.  Then take time to read everyone else’s.  You’ll get great views from around the world.  Share Your World.


This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Journey.  it’s hard picking one journey that I enjoyed.  Cee and I love to explore, so we’re always on some kind of journey, it seems. (Cee’s Share Your World challenge is posted for this week, so please go participate in that, too.)  For this photo challenge, I think I’ll use pictures from inside the Salem, Oregon, Mill Museum.

The 1895 Thomas Kay Woolen Mill, one of the best-preserved Victorian-Age factories in the West and designated an American Treasure by the National Park Service, vividly tells the story of industrialization in the West. See how it was to work in what was once a leading textile factory in Oregon, the legacy of which is continued today by Pendleton Woolen Mills.  I hope you enjoy the journey.

Cee reminded me that I hadn’t done my Share Your World entry.   It’s been a funny sort of week and I’ve gotten off my routine.  Time to catch up with everyone.  It’s hard to believe that she’s already at week 17 of this writing challenge.  I don’t know how she keeps coming up with so many interesting questions.  So here are my answers:

At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?  I think that would have to be when I finished writing my first murder mystery last November.  The story was coming to a great conclusion and the words were pouring out of me.  I typed for hour after hour.  My back started to go into spasms from all the unaccustomed effort but I (more…)

Cee has another set of challenging questions in her Share Your World challenge this week.  (For more information, and to participate in the challenge, click here.)  Here are my answers for this week.

If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

This is a tough one.  I love Oregon, but I want to live closer to the ocean, but still in the big trees.  I thought about New Zealand but they have those noisy bugs in the summer time. It sure looks pretty, though.  I think I’d just have to explore and find some place with lush greenery that is in a temperate weather zone.  Oh, wait!  That sounds just like the Oregon coast.

If your were a car or truck what make, model, year and color would you be?

Being a writer with an over developed imagination, I get to answer this a lot of times.  I could be a 1920s era Packard Phaeton with a V12 engine, which is to me the epitome of elegance, wealth and power.  Color?  Tone on tone beige / brown.  Classy.

I could be an SUV, in this case a Ford Expedition.  It’s a work horse that can pull a trailer and take me adventuring.  Power, easy to get in and out, hauls people and cargo.  Does it all.  Blue or green.

I could be a little motor bike, like a Vespa, able to zip around, run errands, weave in and out of traffic.  Efficient, multitasking. nimble, and a gas saver to counter my gas hogging alter ego.

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?

Fly into outer space.  Be weightless and get a whole new perspective on plant Earth.  See the limitless view of the universe.

Where do you eat breakfast?

Usually at my computer, after writing three pages in my journal.  I always come first in my day, and my journal is “me” time.  On Saturday, Cee and I go out to breakfast and take time to catch up on our respective worlds.  It’s our time to talk about our creativity and where it has taken us.

These were some tough questions this week, but I enjoyed them.  Now I get to see what everyone else has written.
