List 2 things you have to be happy about?
I am happy to live in a place with such magnificent views in the surroundings. Our village is at the foot of the Jura, which has seven parallel chains of mountains stretching to the Swiss border in the North. There is then a flat plane towards the south and it ends in the Bernese Overland with the big mountains. I am now happy to have an electric wheelchair to be able to take photos. I am a very lucky person.
Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?
I was going to say no, but then I remembered we once had a very small ash tray from a polished rock. This was many years ago, and I do not think we ever used it as an ash tray. I stopped smoking thirty years ago. However Mr. Swiss to the rescue. We still have it on a shelf as an ornament and here it is. Otherwise I do not collect rocks, just heavy big stones for my rockery in the garden.
Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?
Neither nor. It is a little custom here that if you meet someone from the family or a very good friend you will give them a squeeze out of friendship. Formally we shake hands. I do not hug anyone and everyone, it is not my style. I am one of the cool english.
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.
Being independent again, weather permitting. I am now out and about with my camera. I had to stop my longer walks as they were too exhausting (MS) and 10 minutes became the limit. Now I have my electric wheelchair and weather permitting, I am out in the afternoons. I can now even go a little further. We have ducks, geese, horses and chickens across the road, a castle and a river runs at the bottom of our village for some duck and swan action. What could be better. I feel better. I meet people on the way, we have conversations and when I arrive home I am refreshed.
