Welcome to this week’s installment of Cee’s Share your world challenge. You can find links to all of her challenges here. this is my favorite one of them…with the Fun Foto being my second favorite…probably because I have a bunch of truly oddball pictures with nowhere else to post them.
So, once again (or for those here for the first time) all of Cee’s questions are pretty colored and my answers aren’t!
Was school easy or difficult for you? How so? School was very difficult during the first three years. I have dyslexia and I went to school before anyone had ever heard of such a thing..so I received lots of fussing, almost no assistance and a whole lot of parental punishment for failing to learn how to read. I finally had a decent and caring fourth- grade teacher to whom I shall be forever grateful, who saw my struggles and found a way to help me learn. I still have trouble reading but with a few tricks, I can make do. It hasn’t stopped me from going through college and obtaining a higher degree or a better job either!
List some of your favorite types of animals. Guinea Pigs are my all time favorite so far as pets go. I adore them. I like almost every kind of animal. Not too keen on sharks or rattlesnakes……..and I really don’t want to meet a bear or lion without a HUGE fence in between us. I guess I have an aversion to being something’s lunch.
What is your favorite large city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most? Cairo, Egypt. With Jerusalem coming in a close second and Washington DC in third place. What do I remember the most? The sound of the call to prayers. Hauntingly beautiful singing broadcast over loud-speakers five times a day.
I remember the golden light over everything. There is dust everywhere (it IS in a desert, you know) but the light itself made everything have a golden glow to it. The light, combined with the prayer call is the first thing I remember when thinking of Cairo.
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. Going camping with my husband and best friends. A complete escape from all things political or aggravating into the forest for a few days of birdsong, campfires, and hikes through the woods.
