If you could choose any person from history to be your imaginary friend, who would it be and why?

60s, 70s, 80s, 90s: Which decade do you love the most and why?

When you die, what do you want to be remembered for?

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Even though I oftentimes will add photos to my answers, it is not a requirement to participate in Share your World.

I will post four different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a SYW  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World” or “SYW” tag.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.

I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.

HERE ARE MY ANSWERS

If you could choose any person from history to be your imaginary friend, who would it be and why?  Two people come to my mind. Leonardo Da Vinci and Albert Einstein.  I would have loved to listen to them talk and think and just try to figure out how their minds worked.

60s, 70s, 80s, 90s: Which decade do you love the most and why?  I’m a child of the late 60s and 70s.  I always thought I was born ten years to late.  I would have loved to be college age or early twenties in the 1960s.  I probably  would have ended up in the protests for peace.

When you die, what do you want to be remembered for?  I want to be remember for bringing joy into people lives.  A line from Little House on the Prairie once was “If you can not remember me in joy, then don’t remember me at all.”

Denver International Airport during a thunderstorm. https://www.airspacemag.com/multimedia/haunted-airfields-90806234/

This past weekend, we had a couple of rolling thunderstorms.  I come from Colorado where thunderstorms are common and the clanging and clashing of lighting is common and the skies are lit up.  Living now in Oregon, if we get thunder you may get one loud thunder clap.  On Saturday we actually had rolling thunder and lighting flashes and then the thunder clap that went with it.  We had rain and hail.  Our hail fortunately is small and soft.  Saturday was a fun and marvelous day.

  1. It’s interesting that you wish you could have been a teenager or college student in the 1960’s. I was both during that decade. And I graduated college in 1970. A lot of the protesting caused much trouble and harm to many people during those years. On campus bomb threats and resulting evacuations were frightening. In fact my university had to close down completely three weeks before our graduation because of dangerous demonstrations on campus. We couldn’t even finish our classes, and our grades had to be switched to nothing but pass/fail because we could not take any final exams at all. It was a truly sad and discouraging time for all of us who had worked so hard to obtain our degrees and had made that campus our home for so many years. The early 60’s were a happy time, but from ’68 forward – through the mid ’70’s — were extremely troubled years, especially for college students and young adults.

  3. I see that Little House episode all the time!
    My answers: Oscar Wilde & Mark Twain; 80s… all the way; I don’t expect to be remembered and I’m perfectly okay with that.

  4. How strange! If you go to my hom page and type Shakespeare into the search box you will find lots of posts about Stratford and Shakespeare himself. I hope you are successful!

  5. I hope I make a few people happy or happier. But I don’t expect to be remembered for it. People forget quickly. I don’t expect to be remembered except maybe as a distant memory. That’s okay. I have long since come to recognize that none of us will be remembered very long. We haven’t done the kinds of things people are remembered for. The world remembers generals, kings, sometimes great thinkers and even a few great artists … but regular people? They never make it into history or the world’s memory. We just don’t and it’s not because we aren’t good. It’s just that they aren’t going to build monuments for any of us. Assuming any of us really want a monument!

  6. I love a good thunderstorm too although I feel sorry for people whose homes are damaged by storms and don’t enjoy power outages there is something exciting about the thunder claps and the sky being lit up. You can really feel nature’s power.
