I received this interesting post from Janebasilblog today. Starting this week, Calen, at Impromptu Promptlings, invites us to revisit the Sandbox Challenge. She begins with a loosening up exercise, asking us four questions about ourselves. Here are the questions and my answers:
If you were asked to choose seven words to describe yourself, what would they be?
If you were asked to choose seven objects that have meaning for you, what objects would you choose?
* My photo albums and picture gallery
* My Music collection
* Dad’s orchids that I care for
* Carole’s memorabilia
* A poetry book Melpomene, in which a poem of mine, was my first published works
* The bookcase my grandpop made for me
* Mum’s round brass antique coffee table.
If you were asked to choose seven colors that have meaning for you, what colors would you choose ?
* White – like a dove, the sign of peace
* Red – the colour of Carole’s hair
* Blue – like the sky above
* Ocean Blue – the origin of life
* Green – the colour of Mother Nature
* Orange – my colour of happiness
* Neutral Gray – wouldn’t it be nice for the whole world to be neutral
If you were asked to choose seven places that have meaning for you, what places would you choose?
* “Tullawalla” our old family home in Ocean Grove
* Port Fairy, south west coast of Victoria, “Our” favourite camping holiday destination, special glorious times, and the friends we camped with are still my besties
* My home, probably my final abode, now proudly called “Tullawalla”
* The Ocean Grove surf beach, the sands of time here, soothes my soul.
* My sporting/football Club “Bell Park”, my lifelong community involvement group, and where “our” wedding reception was held 42 years ago, and where I still socialize.
* 27 Logan St, North Geelong, the family home for the first 20 years of my life, my childhood was blissful and it’s where all my dreams were born and fostered.
* The gorgeous site where Carole’s ashes lay…… It’s the old Geelong West Cemetery, for me the most beautiful place in the universe.
For Jane, Thank You for the inspiration to write this article…..
