Share your World – Autumn

Questions

Are you more productive at night or in the morning? Do you think it’s possible to change and get used to another schedule?

 I always say that my brain doesn’t ‘wake up’ until about 10am. I also get a ‘new lease on life’ from about 4pm.

At the moment, however, I am very scattered and unfocussed and don’t seem to have the same pattern of alertness. I feel like a zombie, all day. State of the world, mind and body. I’m not looking after myself, so it’s no surprise.

Also, I’m generally not good at routine and schedules. Either I’ve something to do, or I don’t. Full on, or fully off.

The couple of times I’ve successfully completed nanowrimo I have managed to get up early and do a set amount of words or minutes before the rest of the day distracts me. So, I can do both change and routine.

What’s the biggest vehicle you’ve driven?  If you don’t drive, what’s the biggest vehicle you’ve ridden in? 

Driven, a Mitsubishi Pajero, the husband’s car. Too big. I don’t know where the edges are and was stressed the whole time, but was taking my turn 🙂

Ridden in? A tank during army reserve days. Otherwise, those big wheel tour buses that take you onto the glaciers (Canada).

What songs would be played on a loop in hell?   

Bad cover versions of classics. Country music 🙂 Discordant jazz. I can appreciate the cleverness, but can’t stand the listening.

Mariah Carey, Celine Dion – any of those screaming, high octave, ballady songstresses. I can listen to a song, but not on a loop. You’d give up and die, and die.

(Deep and chewy philosophical question):     What does it mean to be a person?  What constitutes “personhood?” (there may be some diverse opinions, but we’re all mature adults in here, so be respectful of others please).

Specifically on this planet, I was thinking human because of the ability to choose and make decisions. To feel compassion and empathy (there are degrees of empathy, so you don’t have to be a saint).

Sentience alone doesn’t lead to personhood.

But then if my parameters are compassion and empathy, and making decisions / choosing – doesn’t man’s best friend the dog display all that?

  1. Thanks Trish for joining our great Share Your World community! I’m very honored that you participated! Now can you answer a question I have? What is that cocoon looking thing in the photo you provided at the top? I’ve seen those and I have never known what they were…I thought they must be some kind of flower, but no. You can tell something spun that and with the size of it, I don’t want to meet what’s inside at all! Brrr spiders… What great answers to the questions! I agree with the screechy soprano voices. I can’t abide those either! Your ‘person’ answer was lovely. Those are wonderful parameters to have for designating ‘personhood.’ To me personally? Dogs ARE human (this is tongue in cheek mind you), they’re just real short, real hairy and hard to understand (except by their mommies and daddies). Yeah, I’m a bit of a dog nut. 🐶 Have a wonderful week and I hope to see you next week too! I’m very glad you participated!

    • Good morning Melanie, thanks for the personal connection!
      We haven’t had dogs since I was a child – we do cats now but by accident since we kept living in places without decent fencing 🙂 Cats are good too. I like their independence.
      I don’t know the answer about that ‘web’ exactly – it could be spiders, but it might be caterpillars (or webworms) I googled it 🙂 It made a great photo though, out on a walk one day! Have a great day! From Australia.

  3. Hi fellow Trish,What a treat to wake up to your post, for a moment I thought I had somehow left my body during the night and written a vlog piece to myself!!! 😍 I hope all is well with you and you’re back travelling again or at least planning to….I have just come back from a few days in Cotignac, South of France, with a band of 14 soul sisters. Cotignac is the only place in the world where Mary, Joseph and Jesus have appeared together as a family and where Mary Magdelene spent her time after the Resurrection 🥰.It was a magical trip, one that I will never forget. I took a rest day yesterday to process all we experienced, I even found my voice and sang ‘you raise me up’ in the airport 🎶 😅Take good care of you.NamasteTrishSent from my Galaxy
