Share Your World – 2014 Week 14

Here is my contribution to Share Your World for this week.  (Scroll to the bottom for more info on SYW.)

First of all, how did it get to be week 14 already?  Yikes!

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

Two signs:  Yield and Detour.  My job involves getting groups of people working together, so there is always a lot of yielding going on As we try to resolve competing interests.  There always seem to be a lot of detours as well, as plans change and we have to rearrange priorities.

Is your hair short (total neck and ear showing), medium (covering ears and neck), long (below shoulders), extra long (at least halfway down your back) or bald?

Short.  It has to be.  It’s baby fine, doesn’t take a curl and splits if it gets long.  I’ve given up trying to work miracles with it and just go for short.  Cee keeps telling me that when it goes gray it will get thicker, but I’m not rushing into that!

When you are with your friends, do your interactions include much touching—for example, hugging, kissing, rough housing, rubbing backs? Would you like to have more of this? (Note: the answers may vary depending on where you live on this wonderful planet.)

I like to hug, so we usually do that as a greeting and goodbye.  Other than that, not much contact.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $100? 

Taking a mini-vacation with Cee.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for the unfolding beauty of our yard.  It’s a peaceful oasis for me.  Springtime is so lovely.  We just came back from the local Tulip Festival and the flowers were wonderful.

I’m looking forward to qigong class starting in a week and a half.  I’ve ready for a new infusion of knowledge and energy.

share-your-world2Share Your World info and link:  Share Your World is a weekly challenge hosted by my spouse, Cee, at her photography blog. She started Share Your World years ago when she was running a number of challenges on a photography site similar to WordPress.  The majority of photographers are introverts, and they needed a way to get to know each other.  You don’t have to be a photographer to participate, though.  Grab the questions and give us your answers.

Hi.  I’m Chris.  I’m an introvert.  Look for my ongoing series celebrating the introvert(Sunday) and introvert cartoons (Thursday), plus anything else interesting that I find in the meantime.  Come and share with like-minded introverts.  I also contribute to the food blog Three’s Cooking, learning to cook from the heart, for the soul.

  2. How’d it get to be Wednesday of week 14 already?? Yikes!!!!

    Standard pony tail or some sort of head-covering is my hair style go-to…. Anything else is a hassle 😉

  3. ARghhhhhh! sorry – didn’t mean for that to sound or seem aggressive – it’s really unadulterated joy!

    I soo wasn’t expecting to see all those glorious tulips! Wow! I ADORE tulips – what a sight! Thank you! Finding this this evening (my time) has lifted slightly darkened spirits – and since there is way too much snow here still – slow melt – at least I know spring is well underway elsewhere! Just delightful!
    Thank you 🙂
