Share Your World 5-3-2021

Thanks go to Melanie over at sparksfromacombustiblemind who is our host for the Share Your World questions (I sooooo look forward to Mondays for these!)

Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total *sshole?  (Credit goes to Cyranny for this question, aired on one of her “Cyranny’s Quickies” posts.)
Ah, the every silver lining has a cloud question.  Sometimes I’m a depressed *sshole Melanie!

Have you ever made someone cry?
Yep, though usually not intentionally. I made my Mum cry with my music a few times, and I believe some of my poetry has hit on a few emotions.

Are you a dreamer or a go-getter?
I’m too old to be a go-getter, but happy to receive. My dreams were shattered years ago, but now I’ve got something real, and wouldn’t change it for the world.

If you were in a band, what instrument would you play?
I play piano anyway, but always fancied a clarinet or saxophone. However, having tried both and not getting so much as a squeak out of either, I’d settle for drums!


Do you feel gratitude is necessary?
Sadly I think this is something that tends to get overlooked as we search or yearn for something and forget exactly what we have.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I loved your first response

  2. Thanks for Sharing Your World Di! I think that the first question and your sterling answer applies to everyone. We’re ALL depressed *ssholes now and again. I was listening to Louis Armstrong playing his trumpet one day recently and thought “It takes a LOT of wind to do that!” The same for saxophone or clarinet. Those folks are full of hot air! 😉 (in a good way of course). I envy your piano skills, that’s the one I wish I’d learned in the day. Beautiful gratitude meme, as usual, thanks so much for sharing those and providing this old bat with a bit of sunshine on a Monday morning! Have a great week!
