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


Here are her questions for the week:

Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist? 

I’d call myself an optimistic realist.

Can War ever be just?

The band, War?  Absolutely!  The act of war? I’m certain that the powers that be can try to justify it, but I call bullshit.  There are always ulterior motives that sacrifice the many for the benefit of a select few.

Now, that said, in the cases of the Hitler’s of the world?  Not sure another option is available.  Remember how I said I was an optimistic realist?  I’d hope people could work out issues without resorting to violence.  But, humans fighting/pillaging/destroying/invading is as old as humanity itself.

Think about the people you love most in your life, what do you do for them?

Everything I can to make them safe, content, happy, and healthy.

Are you health conscious? 

I’d say so, yes.  I eat well, I’m active, and make regular visits to doctors and dentists for check-ups.  That said, I don’t live on tofu and bean sprouts, I hate granola, I loathe running, and I do have a cupcake sometimes, I’ve been known to howl at the moon on occasion still, and I still inhale at times.  Life is too short to deny oneself simple pleasures entirely.  All things in moderation, man.


Gratitude, Thankfulness, Wonder, Aweand Joy!   

This is the space where you share, if you’d like to, something that falls into those categories.

Grateful for the end-of-the-school-year trip to the coast, thankful to see family and friends there, was left in wonder, as always, at the phenomenon that is New Orleans, was awed by a couple of beautiful sunrises, and found joy in a day of playing in the waves at Orange Beach.



My songs of the day are:

“The National Health” by Maximo Park

”Somebody To Love” by Queen

”War On War” by Wilco

”The Fall Of The World’s Optimist” by Elvis Costello

”Health And Happiness” by The Wallflowers

”Is This Love” by Bob Marley

”War Pigs” by Black Sabbath

”The Grand Optimist” by City And Color

  2. Thanks for Sharing Your World and the awesome playlist! “War” (the band) is great, ‘war’ the action, not so much. I think you’re absolutely right, sometimes it’s necessary to stop evil and insane individuals from wrecking havoc on the world, but oftentimes it’s just another ploy by someone with too much power and too little ethics and brains (IMHO). Thanks again for your wonderful answers! 🙂
