Share Your World: January 6, 2018

What one word describes you best?
I honestly do not know. How can you choose one word? I’d like to believe I am much more complex than that. Some might call me independent, and I am, to a certain extent. But there are lots of times when I need people. Some of my exes have described me as “difficult”, but they have also used other adjectives not fit for this page so we will discount what my exes say.

I hope my friends describe me as “loyal”. I believe I am that and can’t really think of an instance when I haven’t been. Still I wouldn’t want to come down to that one word. I hope people might say “Genuine”. If we can only use one word genuine seems more encompassing. Let’s go with that one.

What is set as the background on your computer?
One of my favorite winter scenes, this picture from my 2017 Calendar.

If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been too?
I’ve only ever been outside the US once, to Niagara Falls Canada when I was a teen.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?
I did a couple of posts this week inspired by others. When Claire Fuller posted she read 83 books last year I was awed. I got curious about how many I read, my number is 38 (kinda like Claire’s 83, right? lol). I then decided to do my own list of The Best Books I Read in 2017 and scheduled it to post Tuesday morning.

That evening, my blogging friend Dawn Landau from Tales From the Motherland did her yearly gratitude challenge and I was inspired to join in. It’s a free write list and posted here.

  1. Hi D – as I read your comments on a word for yourself – the genuine one felt really right – you seem authentic and not full of BS (never sense that with you)
    and just with the book thing – well in my very humble opinion – I do not think more is always better – and I have actually been thinking about this lately – the whole “reading made me great” theme was on my mind last month as a few posts were arguing for reading.
    but it also depends on what type of books we are reading and then how we live our life beyond the books – ya know?
    and well- good for the blogger who read all those 83 – and to all those who flip away – but more is not always better (and not saying this was implied…. – just where my thoughts are right now)


  2. Interesting post Dawn. Nice to get to know you a little better from behind the keyboard. I only read a few fiction books a year (and can’t remember them now!!!) I tend to be a non-fiction skimmer, ie not reading every page but just picking out the bits that interest me.
