Friday, truth or tale

I will write a story that will be truth or tale.
Some stories will be 100% truth (or close to it) others will be 100% tale.
Most will be a little bit of both.
You can decide where the story belongs.

It was a matter of life and death.
It was important that she ask the right questions.
It was also important that she understand the answers.
She took a deep breath;

Who?    Us.
What?   Leave.
When?   Now.
Where?   Away.
Why?   Must.

She asked the right questions.
She understood the answers.
She was ready.
Then she woke up.

Cee’s Share Your World–20116 Week 18


Who was your best friend in elementary school?
Linda until we moved and I went to another school then I don’t think I had a best friend.  I remember friends but no best friend.

What things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?
If it is at work I would like people to forget I am there.  Don’t bother me, don’t ask me questions, answer the phone and take messages.
If I am at home make me a meal and leave me alone.

If you could make a 15-second speech to the entire world, what would you say?
Stop fighting and listen to each other. That is the only way to peace.

Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?
I would be happy with either but if I have to make a choice it would be to be an amazing singer. 

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful that I could stay home when I was sick, had nothing that had to be done and that I felt better in a couple of days.
I am looking forward to seeing a friend I don’t see often, going shopping with another friend and listening to a wonderful pianist who lives where I do play for the residents.

Where does time go…

hourglass-708574_640So tell me where does time go?  And why is it going wherever it goes faster now than it used to?  Is just because I am older?  I know I am not busier than I was when I was young.

It is now about seven o’clock. I have been up twelve hours.  I went for a walk, did some cleaning (sort of), talked to a couple of friends on the phone, ate, played with the cats, set up tomorrow’s In other Words, read the paper and did the puzzles, read and responded to emails, took a nap…just stuff. Doesn’t seem like twelve hours of stuff, does it?

So, where did the time go?  My ditzy mind wants to know.

Tuesday, good habits bad habits…


Here is something I don’t understand.
Well, there is a lot I don’t understand but for now
I will focus on one thing.


Why are good habits so hard to establish and bad habits so easily made routine?
Why are good habits so easy to let go of and bad habits so hard to remove?
Why are we so often reminded about our bad habits and rarely told about our good habits?
Why do good habits seem so dull and bad habits so fun?


Today, I think I will never understand.

Tuesday, the answers are hidden from me…

There are some things for which I have never found the answer.  These are three of them.


1.  Why is sleep so much sweeter after the alarm goes off?

IMAG005222.  When the day creeps along and seems like it will never end why at the end of it do I wonder where the day went?



3.  Why when I am all snuggled up in bed and comfy cozy just drifting off to dreamland do I suddenly realize I have to pee?




It is a mystery to me.

Tuesday, what or who that is the question…


Children are asked what they want to be when they grow up…

Not who they want to be?

Teenagers are asked what they want to do with their life…

Not who they want to be in life?

Young adults are asked what are their long term goals…

Not how will you become who you want to be?

Older adults are asked what are their retirement plans…

Not how did you become who you are?

The elderly are asked was their life what they wanted it to be…

Not are you who you wanted to be when you grew up?

Today, I think maybe some of the problems we have as people are because, from the beginning, we ask the wrong questions.
