Cee’s Photo Challenge: Share Your World
Here is the basic format.
I will ask you: To answer fours questions each week. Bonus Question is always the same “What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?” Because we all need to be reminded that there are many things in our lives to be grateful about.
Let’s get started (I’m so excited!):
What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person?
I have been blessed to have traveled and seen so many places. I know, living in Alaska, a living post card, you might think I would share sights of the Last Frontier. But, no, I am going to share with you a place I discovered on a pilgrimage in the South of France. The Saint-Baume Grotto, thought to be the home of Mary Magdalene during her last years, sits high upon a hill by Marseille.
The pilgrimage begins at the edge of an old woods with and a tree guiding the way. It was my marker to point me in the right direction as I headed up.
There are two paths up; the left or the right…either will take you to the Holy Cave. But the request is for silence and contemplation as you make your way up. Don’t forget to stop for a sip of holy water at the edge of the trail.
I arrived at the top just in time for Mass. I slipped into a pew just as the doors closed behind me and the priest began the service – all in french. If you get the opportunity stay for Mass – take the time, close your eyes and let the spirit fill you. I felt the spirit of the divine move through the few of us there and its a memory forever in my heart.
How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order?
I have 3 brothers; one older brother and two who are younger, the youngest brother and I are twelve years apart.
If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?
BOOTS! I’ve never met a boot that I haven’t liked. There just something about them that makes me happy…so much so that my girlfriends began calling me Boots years ago. We should all have girlfriends that love you unconditionally and I am soooo extremely lucky to have some of the best friends in the whole world. Did I mention a pair of Sorels are stocking me? Yep…everywhere I go online there they are just pleading for me to bring them home. But I’m ignoring them as best I can…I can do it… I can do it….but they are soooo CUTE.
What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
Since I have a pretty sensitive pallet I must admit that I don’t typically stray from tried and true cuisines. I know…just my adventurous side kind of turns into a weenie when it comes to venturing out when it comes to food. I did dip my finger into the buttery, garlicy sauce that escargot sat in…that must count. No? well…darn.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for taking the plunge into blogging. I’m opening up to the unknown and I’m enjoying the creative outlet. And I am sooo looking forward to prepping for my trip to Vegas. Its just around the corner and I cant wait to share it with you.
