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


Here are her questions for the week:

What does a successful relationship look like to you?

Well, every couple is different, and each have certain things that make them last.  That said, I’d think any good one would include a mutual respect, honesty, communication, each actually liking the other and enjoying each other’s company, trust, being friends as well as lovers and spouses, through the calms and the storms.

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning medal for?

Hmmm.  Whitewater?  Mini golf?  Surfing?  None of the above.  Hmmm.  🤔

What do you wish you knew more about?

Outer space, and our place in it.

What is better in your opinion – asking for forgiveness or permission?

Well, not sure I really ask “permission” much.    My wife and I will discuss big decisions, yes, because the money is all in one pot.  But permission?  Not exactly.  I don’t generally make rash decisions with money.  Other stuff, though? Like a happen-upon bungee jump while on a boys weekend?  No, I didn’t ask if I could do it.

Not that I haven’t had to ask forgiveness, mind you.  Because I have.  That’s not very fun.  Admitting that I was wrong, that I may have hurt someone’s feelings, or just plain fucked up is not easy.  Especially if it’s my wife or kids that I’m apologizing to.

What’s the best thing about your life right now?

My family and the life we’ve created.  We are stable, we love where we live, we love each other, we get to travel, our cars are in good shape.  All in all, it’s pretty smooth sailing.  I’m gonna enjoy it as long as it lasts.


My songs of the day are:

”In My Life” by The Beatles

”Without Permission” by The National

”Lack Of Knowledge” by Violent Femmes

”Strange Relationship” by Prince

”Smooth Sailing” by Leon Bridges

“Forgiveness” by John Mellencamp

“Do I Wanna Know?” by Arctic Monkeys

”Local Long Distance Relationship (LA2NY)” by Saint Motel
