Here are my answers to Cee’s Share Your World for this week
What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person? It would have to be my first view of the Pacific Ocean, from San Diego, California in 1987. It was the first time I’d ever seen any ocean. I’d seen a couple of the Great Lakes, but an ocean is different. It has different energy, and that salt water tang in the air is wonderful.
How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order? I am the oldest of five.
If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why? A good, stout hiking boot because you can go almost anywhere and in any kind of condition with strong boots on your feet. Can you tell I grew up in the mountains instead of by the ocean?
What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten? I haven’t eaten very much odd stuff. Rattlesnake, which tastes like chicken. Would Baked Alaska count? It’s pretty strange eating ice cream that’s baked in the oven. Does anyone even make it any more? I had it in 1970 or ’71. That’s been a long time now.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week? I’m grateful I’m through it and I’m finally coming out on the other side of my post-election, post-inauguration depression. It’s taken a lot of questioning and listening for answers that made sense to me, but I’m there now, and feeling more and more uplifted.
What am I looking forward to? More robins in my yard, those wonderful heralds of spring. The first bulbs coming up. The primroses blooming.
