Share Your World – November 27, 2017

Would you prefer a reading nook or an art, craft, photography studio?

Computer

I have everything I need in my “office”. When the kids were at home it was my No. 2 son’s bedroom, but he moved out many years ago. It still took time to organise and eventually you reach an age where you no longer cling onto stuff that you realise you no longer need and let’s face it, you cannot take it with you, nor does anyone else want it.

My life is a computer, many cameras and reading. In this room I have my computer(s), the second one is on the shelf opposite. Somewhere there is a Kindle for reading. I have my printer(s), and a super installation for the electricity. I have a cupboard opposite with all my photography stuff.

Photography

What more do I need?

Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.)

A few clouds in the afternoon, for an hour due to cleaning doors. Now the sun is peeping through.

If you could witness or physically attend any event past, present or future, what would it be?

I would love to have seen a dodo, a flightless bird that inhabited Mauritius and became extinct some time in the 17th centuary.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Sunrise

When I see a sunrise like this in the morning, it is inspiration enough for me. At last our building scourge is over, after 8 months of scaffolding, dirt and noise they have gone forever, I hope. Today the finishing touches were put to our lawn, fresh seeds sown, the autumn leaves removed and my birdhouse has a busy coming and going. What more should I want. Not everyone in the world is as lucky as I am.

  1. 1. I still miss my old ‘office’ in a home I rented in town. It was really just the front part of the long rectangular parlor. The window faced west. I had a big stout desk made of black walnut, with an old rotary telephone that my younger sisters did not know how to operate. Next to the desk was an old typewriter table with my old 1919 Underwood typewriter on it. The pair of desk lamps were aluminum copies of iron hitching posts that were made in my ancestor’s foundry in Alviso. It was all rather posh.
    2. I am still too tired and ‘slow’ to feel much of anything yet. It is a nice clear day right now after rain last night. More rain is on the way, which is something to look forward to. Other bloggers make me wonder what a ‘real’ autumn would be like, as only a few of the sweetgums around town are turning red.
    3. My great grandparents lived through nearly a century of history, and made so many of the historical events from that time sound like everyday events. It gives me an appreciation for the many historical events that I have witnessed within my own time, and makes me realize that some of these events affect the future. Okay, enough of that. I think I would have liked to been there for the Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889. I should have been able to go out and homestead a bit of land in a way that is not possible now. However, I would have wanted to do it and still be a Californian too.
    4. After writing a short article about my Uncle Bill cutting down the dreaded Tree Monster (and scheduled if for a few days from now), I was somewhat saddened by his absence. He was such a superhero when I was a kid. I always wanted to grow up to be just like him. Obviously, I am not just like him; and I am certainly no superhero. However, I got everything I needed from him.

      • It’s OK about the long answer, I enjoyed reading it. you can also join in on the challenge, it is open to all. I am sure Cee would love to have you there. I am sure the pioneer days of the West was an interesting time to live in. Our Autumn is now almost gone, and there are barely leaves left on the trees. It is getting colder and snow is just around the corner.

  2. It would have been fun to see the earth in the beginning with all the earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, etc. It must have been amazing. And then to see all the animals start to appear. I’d like a sped up version of all of creation. 😀
