Time for this week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography.

 

Here are Cee’s questions for the week:

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

It would involve paddling in a salt marsh in the morning:

a warm and sunny day on the beach with a cooler and a surfboard and a fishing pole all afternoon:

watching a beautiful sunset:

a dinner on the water:

a couple of golf cart rides around a quaint and non-overdeveloped island on a balmy evening:

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world…..

….is the place I described in the previous questions’ answer: Ocracoke Island.

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

His name is Jason, and we grew up in the same neighborhood.  Went to grade school and high school together.  Separate colleges though, so we kinda lost track for a while.  Ran into him again years ago, at the pizza place he opened, and still see him periodically at his newest restaurant venture, started a couple years ago.  We aren’t best friends anymore, I suppose, but we still see each other 5 or 6 times a year now, and always enjoy catching up over a cocktail or two.

What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Watching the humanity amid tragedy during all the footage from east Texas. The lines of boats from everyday people from all over the country, at the ready to be of service.  The calls for donations and assistance to those in need, and the overwhelming response in kind.  People of different races, ethnicities, and religions, all helping one another in dire circumstances.  It gives me hope for humans after all.

Just can’t understand why it takes such a catastrophic event for people to actually help their fellow man, rather than try to suppress them.

 

My songs of the day are:

“Perfect Crime #1” by The Decemberists

“Almost Perfect” by The Pretenders

“Nothing Is Perfect” by Neil Young

“In Perfect Dreams” by kd lang

“Perfect Partner” by Jimmy Buffett

“Perfect Fit” by Van Morrison

“Perfect Couples” by Belle & Sebastian

“Perfect Lover” by Chris Isaak

  1. Know it’s an obvious choice but perfect by Smashing Pumpkins. If I was in Ocracoke Island I’d have to listen to Are You In by Incubus at lease a few times.

  2. I haven’t visited Ocracoke Island, but it looks beautiful. I agree about it being a shame that it takes tragedy to pull people together.

    • Oh, Ocracoke is fantastic. A lot outta the way, and not commercialized in the least. I highly recommend it.

      And, yeah, it’s disappointing that we won’t all just care for one another in the day to day. Two weeks from now, all of that goodwill will be forgotten. 😕

  4. I love the photos and your perfect day! They are all relaxing and look so calm, peaceful. I really liked what you had to say about the current events and how people came together regardless of race, religion and culture. This is the way it should be, not just in times of tragedy. You gave it words perfectly!
