A Share Your World Twister 8-10-20

So it is time for SHARE YOUR WORLD again. This week and for the next few Melanie is joining forces with Roger Shipp and helping us share our world’s HARRY POTTER STYLE.

Each week for the next few Roger will ask questions 1-4 and then Melanie will ask us questions 4- through 8ish. In answering them we will Share Our Worlds Harry Potter Style.

Each week I will link this whole post to both Melanie and Roger’s posts. When you have finished here. Go to their respective posts to see how their other contributors have answered.

Here are the questions and my answers:

ROGER’S QUESTIONS:

  1. Because of the state-wide quarantines many of the local SPCA’s are having an influx of animals. You have decided that you would love to have a new pet. Would you go the normal wizardry route and pick an owl, a cat, or a toad? Or would you become a more eccentric wizard (like Hagrid, the games keeper) and seek out a three-headed dog, a dragon, or a unicorn? Please explain your answer. I am definitely going to adopt a hippogriff.

Or maybe a hippocampus

  1. Neville Longbottom was gifted a Remembrall. This was a glass ball that would assist you in maintaining memories of things that you often forget. What would you want your Remembrall to help you remember? Birthdays and anniversaries for sure. That would be very handy.
  2. Professor Dumbledore gave Harry Potter an invisibility cloak that Dumbledore said was from Harry’s father. Now, you have inherited a cloak with similar powers. Would you use it? When? Every day for three hours. That seems like a perfect amount of time to vanish.
  3. While cleaning your attic, you have discovered the Mirror of Erised. (“Erised” is “desire” spelled backwards, as if reflected in a mirror) The Mirror of Erised is a magical mirror, which, according to Professor Dumbledore, when you gaze into it, it shows the “deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts.” You have chosen to look in the mirror. What do you see? Heaven.

AND NOW MELANIE’S QUESTIONS:

Would You Rather Live 120 Years That Are Comfortable But Boring, Or Live Half As Long, But Have An Exciting Adventure Packed Life?

I choose eternal life with the perfect mix of both. Sorry I had to cheat.

What’s Something That Overwhelms You?

People. I love them but have found I to be careful to pray real good between doses.

What Do or DID You Take For Granted?

Oh! So many things and it cost me quite a lot. It’s what comes from trying to please everyone. You end up pleasing no one. It’s better to put your energy into the ones who should be most important in your life and putting everyone else in a box that says “If I have the time.” That might sound horrible, but I wish I had chosen that path when I was twenty five….but then if I had done that I would not be who I am today…..there is this thing about needing our pain to be fully formed, but that’s another post.

Gratitude:   Please feel free to share some gratitude moments or thoughts you’ve had recently.  This section is entirely optional.

Tis week I am very grateful for focus music. This stuff has been keeping me centered all week.

  1. Thanks Joseph for Sharing Your World and some beautiful, relaxing music! Focus is indeed an appropriate title! Thanks! 🙂 You know, it’s a little eerie, but those two creatures are the first ones I thought of too…although where I’d keep the hippocampus would be a problem, because Utah is so dry and there are few big bodies of water around. Maybe it could shrink small enough to swim in my bathtub. Lol. There’s an old song that has the lyric “you can’t please everybody, so might as well please yourself.”… That’s a bit selfish, but it’s also true. I think in your profession learning to balance the ‘them” time and the ‘me’ time must be trying sometimes. We all do the best we can (hopefully). I’ve heard it mentioned that some folks would take that invisibility cloak to listen in on what’s going on with the politicians when nobody’s looking. That seems to me to be a fine use for such a thing! 🙂
