Share Your World – June 6, 2017

What’s your strongest sense?

Oh, well, yes, not as good as they were. I wear glasses, have MS so brain messages do not always arrive where they should in the limbs and that would eliminate touch to a certain extent but I can still use the keyboard on my computer, and manage quite well with the iPad. My hearing is OK, but when you are a golden oldie you have learned to hear what you want to hear. I am quite good at concentrating on what I want to do, and that means certain noises can be eliminated. Taste is OK, and so is smell. However, I do not classify any sense being stronger than others. Oh wait, talking is my best sense, but it does not seem to be included in the list.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)

I was the third tallest in the class, so dwarf I could never be – I looked down at most people from my height and have maintained my 1 meter 75 cms to this day, although they do say you shrink as you grow older. From the dwarf choice of characteristics I asked Mr. Swiss. He settled for happy, although these days I do tend to sleep more than I used to.

If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?

7 ages of man Wyss Garten Center 26.05 (7)
The last three ages of man – won’t bother with the other four. I am probably the one in the middle.

“for the rest of my life”? That is a double edged wish for me. I would love to have my body functions from 40 years ago when I could get out of bed in the morning without having to think about how to do it. On the other hand I would loved to have known what I know now 40 years ago.  Permanently 30 years old, no thanks. I would not be able to get half price on the local train.

List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy.

I quite enjoy the job I have now, called retired. I can do what I want to, and even get paid for it. Just a few inconveniences like doctor visits in between. Of course I was never honoured with a Pulitzer prize for my photography, or a Nobel prize for my writing, but it is never too late. Seriously, I would love to write a best selling novel. Of course to be actually paid for taking photos would be a dream come true.

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

I was grateful for it being a week with smooth runnings: no problems, the builders have now stopped using noisy machines. I never realised the constant background drilling could be such a burden.

Have no plans for this week and hope that life continues as usual with no unpleasant surprises.

    • Always look on the bright side. Lots of fit young men (and some older) working and I can take their photos. Also I have tons of odd balls just waiting in the wings, as well as which ways, although they are mostly on scaffolding. What could be better.


  1. Great answers. Retirement? Yeah, that I aspire to. Next year for me. Actually this year. I’m out of here December 31, 2017! And, like you, all I want to do is photography. That great American novel still eludes me but second rate would be just fine. 🙂

    • Retirement is the best job I ever had, and I really didn’t think it would be. I can please myself when and what I do, although a little organisation must be, but your own – no boss to tell you when. Just came back from a walk with the camera, just great.
