Share Your World: October 23, 2021

Are you easily frightened or startled?
Yes I am and sadistic co-workers think it is hilarious. I do not.

If you were a ghost, what location do you think you would haunt? Is it the same or different from the location you’d want to haunt?
If I get to pretend I am a ghost then I get to choose where I will haunt.

What do you see in your mind’s eye when you close your eyes?
It depends on why I am closing my eyes, whether for sleep or meditation. But either way I try to imagine beautiful calming places, like an ocean sunrise or a mountain sunset.

If a Semi were about to smash into a crowd, and you could divert the vehicle’s course to hit only one person, would you? How would you decide who would become the victim?
This is another version of the classic philosophical thought experiment known as the trolley problem.
I hope for all those involved that their fate does not rest with me. I’m quite certain I would be uselessly standing on the sidelines with my mouth agape.

What makes you feel warm and cozy when the wind blows cold?
Fuzzy slippers, a warm blanket and maybe some hot chocolate.

What brought gratitude, a smile or laughter to your life this week?
I spent my break from work traveling the back roads looking for color and ended it at my son’s for dinner. How blessed am I? 🙂

  1. Thanks, Dawn, for Sharing Your World! Your ‘gratitude’ sounds amazing and the photograph is wonderful! That looks so peaceful! The ‘big rig’ question originally was the ‘trolley’ scenario, I just tweaked it a bit. Good, honest answer you gave too! 🙂 There are a lot of us in the ‘startle easily’ crowd, and yeah, others seem to find it funny. They don’t seem to find it AS funny though, if one is given to shrieking really loudly when startled. 😄
    Have a splendid weekend and enjoy the beautiful Fall colors!
