Share Your World: October 1, 2018

Time for this week’s Share Your World from Sparks From A Combustible Mind.


Here are her questions for the week:

What’s your go-to for unwinding after a stressful event or day?   Can be someone or something – music, pets, family or whatever you choose.

My wife and boys certainly ground me and make me feel comfortable and calm.  Music does too.  Going on a walkabout with my camera works well.  But, my go-to for stress relief, when I just need a bit of space and alone time, is being on the water.  A couple hours on a desolate lake is good for what ails me.

The plane you’re flying in is going to crash, no survivors.  If you had one song you could listen to before it happens, what would it be?  (credit to NewEpicAuthor for this one).  Please share the link to the song if you can.

This is too hard.  Only one?  How ‘bout I pick “Riviera Paradise” by Stevie Ray Vaughan:

Or, if there’s a bit longer before it’s curtains, I’d listen to Houses Of The Holy in its entirety…loudly.

What is one thing you’re really, really good at and not ashamed to admit it?  I worded that deliberately because aren’t we taught to be humble and not pushy about our achievements?  Celebrate your ability!

Frankly, I hate questions like this.  I’m not a big toot-my-own-horn kinda guy.  If I had to pick something though, it’d be kayaking.  I’ve whitewatered since I was about 12, and have made tons of runs over the years, on some big-boy rivers.

My favorite is the Ocoee, and the New, the Gauley, the Colorado, the Nantahala, and the Middle Fork of the Salmon are all fantastic too.

Would you rather lose all of your money and valuables or all of the pictures you have ever taken?

If I lost all my photos, I wouldn’t know what to do.  They’re like family to me, so losing something so irreplaceable would be devastating.

And lastly

What were you grateful for or something that made you smile during the past month?

A Fall Break trip south, a great visit with family and some friends, and a few adventures along the way.  Laissez le bon temps rouler.


My songs of the day are:

“The Song Remains The Same” by Led Zeppelin

”The Rain Song” by Led Zeppelin

”Over The Hills And Far Away” by Led Zeppelin

”The Crunge” by Led Zeppelin

”Dancing Days” by Led Zeppelin

”D’yer Mak’er” by Led Zeppelin

“No Quarter” by Led Zeppelin

  3. Great song. I think you’re wrong about what you’re best at. I think you’re best at loving your wife and kids. Everything else is second to that.

  4. Great answers. Music and being on the water are two of my great de-stressors too. 😊
