Sharing a Bit of Me with You ~~ 2014 Week 28

Another week is here and half gone. And another edition of Share Your World, courtesy of Cee is here. Come join in! It’s a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

 

Have you ever been a participant in a parade? What did you do?

No, I’m not one to draw attention to myself. I haven’t even seen that many parades, except for on TV. My mom always had to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade every year.

If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why?

Oh, I would take them and go. Even though I don’t understand the languages usually, I love the singing, music and drama that goes with opera.

Why did you start your blog?

To write. That’s the short version. I love to write, always have. I had so many stories locked up inside and I needed to get them out. That first post was the scariest thing to do though. To hit that publish button and let it out into the world. I never really expected to get followers or people who liked what I wrote. But getting that first one, then another, then another. It was so exciting! I’ve ‘met’ so many wonderful, talented, big-hearted people on WP, that I just fell in love with the community. It’s been a wonderful ride so far, so I plan on doing this for a long time to come. (If my muse ever comes back from holiday LOL)

What is your favorite tradition? (family tradition, church tradition, whatever)

I pretty much broke away from any family traditions, many years ago. I don’t go to church so never had any of those. I have made some traditions of my own, so I guess they would be my┬ápersonal traditions. ┬áMy favorite one? Well, it used to be a tradition of mine to buy a new Santa decoration every year. It didn’t have to be much, a small ornament, a little nick knack, some years I even painted a new one for my collection. I’ve gotten away from it the past few years, but that was always my favorite. I love the ‘idea’ of Christmas and Santa. I love all the different renditions of Santa around the world. I think it’s fascinating that one fictional (as far as we know) character is beloved worldwide. Now if we could just spread some of that love throughout the year, it would make a much nicer world.
