Time for Share Your World, a challenge written and presented by Cee. Cee’s purpose in hosting this challenge is to allow all of us bloggy people to get to know each other better. Thank you, Cee — this is one of my favorite posts all week. The questions are:
- If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, hot tub, or desert? Without even a second of thinking about it, salt water beaches. Preferably with a reef. The water in freshwater lakes and hot tubs seem too static, not stirred up like saltwater beaches. And not the desert — it isn’t too hot, because it’s dry, but to many creepy-crawlies, and almost no other animals.
- What book do you think everyone should read and why? I’m sure there are piles of non-fiction books which could be the answer to this, but I’ve chosen a novel — Cannery Row, by John Steinbeck. This story is full of archetypes, with the twists that mark Steinbeck’s works. And it is fun to read, but still poignant and moving.
- What’s your favorite way to wake up and whats the first thing you do? I like to wake five minutes before the alarm, very quietly. The first thing I do is start the kettle for tea, and check my blood sugar, and take my meds. I fix breakfast and a big mug of tea, and sit down to read emails, comments, and posts.
- What do you do [to] relax? Read fiction or science fiction; or watch action, adventure, or science fiction movies; or programs about physics — preferably particle physics and quantum theory. I missed physics altogether in school, and I’m finding it fascinating.
