Melanie over at Sparks from a Combustible Mind offers up some insightful questions this week. I don’t do the Share Your World all the time because, like Kristian, I want this blog to be more about my writing than about me but hey, sometimes Melanie’s questions are just irresistible.


1. Are you thin or thick skinned? Are you easily offended or tend to let it just roll off your back like a duck does with water?

2. How important are morals in a healthy society? What are the most important morals for citizens to have? (Credit to Rory for this question)

3. What will your epitaph be?

4. (I don’t admire either/or questions much, which is why you won’t see ‘em often. Today is an exception) French toast, pancakes or waffles?

  1. What were you grateful for this past week?


1 – I’m pretty thick skinned. As a Highly Sensitive Person (yeah, it’s a real thing) I’m extremely sensitive to a thousand tiny signs of body language, voice tones, facial expressions, air movements, pollen counts (OK, shutting up now). I have worked really hard to developing psychic shields that allow me to just “overlook” or “ignore” irritating, offensive words, actions, air currents, bird poop (that’s a story for another post) by realizing the some people are just self absorbed a**hats.  Sometimes it makes me seem oblivious but when you come right down to it, life boils down to two things, doing what you gotta do to get through the day and; it’s not about me.

2 – Morals are extremely important. They are what separates us from the other animals. That being said, morals also differ from region to region, and person to person. That’s OK with me, morals are important, morals all being the same, not so much.

3 – “A Whole Lot of Magic and a Little Bit Tragic I Had a Good Life All the Way.

4 – Scone. If I’m going to indulge in that kind of carb count, I want a lovely, crumbly scone, preferably with butter and a bit of all fruit jam.

5 – That I have a great medical team, waiting for me at home just as soon as I get there. My snowbirding medical fiasco continues. ;-p

There you have it, have a great day everybody.

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP

  1. Um, two things I would LOVE to read about that are about you. 1) The snowboarding medical fiasco and 2) the bird poop. The bird poop is always interesting to read about, because doesn’t that happen when one can least afford the time to deal with it? Thanks for Sharing Your World and honestly I hadn’t thought of fried breads – scones or fry bread in these parts..and our scones are probably vastly different from scones elsewhere – when I asked the pancake question. My favorite in that case would definitely be fry bread. Oh my.

    1. Scones in the UK or NZ are baked. They’re basically a slightly sweet biscuit, best ones are all crumbly and buttery. Oooohhh yummmm. The medical fiasco is just your basic out of network problems. I’m a “snowbird” we live in SD but spend our winters farther south where it’s warmer. Unfortunately, my insurance network doesn’t extend down here and trying to get “prepaid” medical care anywhere in the vicinity of Las Vegas is NUTS! So, I gave up and we’re heading back to SD to freeze so I can get the stupid biopsy all the dr’s agree I need “just in case”. So far $1,000 has gotten me the right to make an appointment for the procedure. I’m DONE warm weather is not worth this. Sorry for the rant but thanks for listening. ~JP
