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


Here are her questions for the week:

Was the last thing you read digital or print?

The Sunday paper, just a bit ago.

Are you more an extrovert or introvert?

I can be both, depending on the situation or who I’m with.  My preference is to be alone or away from most everybody, so I suppose I’m more introvert leaning.

How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person?

As young man, I don’t think I’d have told you I’d even live to be this age, so it’s all gravy at this point.  And somewhat unexpected.  Especially the living on a farm thing.  That was quite a plot twist.

Do you think about dying?   Does death scare you?  Why or why not?

Nog really.  But, now that I’m 50 all of the sudden, reality is unforgiving.  My parents are in their 70’s now.  That’s only 20 years from now for me.  Sobering.  Aging is scarier than dying in my mind.  I’m fighting it as long as I can.

I found this interesting challenge and did it myself.  I’m offering these questions as a gratitude challenge for those who care to do it.    You can answer in text or photo. 

Additional Gratitude Bonus Question: 

Who has been the kindest to you in your life?

My wife.  I’ve said forever that she saved me. She’s quite the ass kicker, to be honest.  But, she’s always had a soft spot for me.


My songs of the day are:

”In My Life” by The Beatles

“Read ‘Em John” by Carolina Chocolate Drops

”Dying Days” by Screaming Trees

”Some Kind Of Wonderful” by Grand Funk Railroad

“This Life” by Vampire Weekend

”Read My Mind” by The Killers

“Dying White Light” by Amos Lee

”What Kind Of Man” by Florence + The Machine

  4. Interesting answers!
    I agree that aging scares me more than death. I enjoy the, cough, wisdom and all the things that just don’t bother me anymore. But it happens so quickly it’s almost surreal. And youth is definitely wasted on the young!
    I’m three years from fifty, and my mother told me many times she felt like that was a wonderful decade, so I am heading to it with positivity ha!

  6. Im totally with you on the aging thing…I’m 53 and totally confused as to how that happened so quickly lol. And I often consider the fact that in only 20 years I’ll be the same age as my mum is now and 10 years older than my dad when he passed away…it’s scary.

  7. I never expected to reach thirty, LOLOL Way past that now and still wondering how I made it. Agree, getting older is more terrifying than being dead. No question about it. I got a Bachelor’s degree in Gerontology, so I wouldn’t be so horrified by aging, but it didn’t help AT ALL. THERE WERE 500 BOOKS on the bad things and a pamphlet on the possibility of something good happening. Love your answers, as always.
