It’s been a kind of a weird week, full of ups and downs. Dad has been gone a week already. I have been trying to sort out memorial stuff, legal stuff, banking stuff and all the rest of it, so Mum doesn’t have to. Some stuff hasn’t been too bad, so is ridiculous. I was his Power of Attorney, but that doesn’t cover him once he has gone!
Anyway I did have a few highlights this week amongst all that. Hubby and I visited the local park on a beautiful Spring morning and took the cameras. I was also capturing some of the local bird life around here this week too.
Anyway onto this week’s SYW questions…
Are we “here” or do we just think we are? (A metaphysical question today folks.) Can you prove your point of view? Tricky…”I think, therefor I am?” Some days I feel like surely I am in The Matrix and I will wake up and find it has already been some elaborate illusion. But then other days I am sure it must be real, could all of this be some delusional reality thought up by one person? If we are not here, then for what reason do we think we exist…do WE exist? I am not sure I can prove anything lol. I take photos, but they could be in my imagination as well.
From an identity stand-point, which would be the worst for you personally to lose? Your face, your body or your voice? Which do YOU identify with most strongly for your own sense of self? I would think my voice. My body is falling apart and could do with a complete overhaul, so wouldn’t bother me if I ‘lost’ it and got a new one! My Face, I have lived with it for so long, I guess I am used to it, it not an overly fantastic face, but it is mine. I guess it would be weird to wake up with another. My Voice…my voice lately IS my business, thanks to COVID so, I am guessing I would be lost without it. I like to talk a lot too, lol. So I guess that would be the hardest thing for me to lose.
Do you have a ‘song’? If you’re part of a couple, you could use “your couple’s song” OR a song that’s just always resonated with you. I am not sure I have just one song…I have several favourites, but it really depends on the mood I am in. If I am sad My All by Mariah Carey, or Fragile by Sting. Lots of happy songs, or mellow songs…but not one My Song.
“Spooky” Halloween Question: Oooo! BOO!
Are ghosts real or has someone been smoking something and just imagines them? I don’t know if they are real or not. I think there are a lot of things we just can’t explain, perhaps ghosts are one of them. But I don’t think everyone is a ghost…so many millions of people have died, surely there would be more evidence? And why only since like 1600s or so (are there any older?). Why aren’t there caveman ghosts? Why is it only people? Are there cats or dogs, bears or beavers? What about birds? No idea…maybe they are all just made up and fun to tell spooky stories?
I always try to write something in this sections, some weeks are harder than others. I am so grateful for some many wonderful friends and family. I am so grateful for my wonderful business and the opportunities it has given me. This week I was sent a loan lens to try out, managed to capture these wonderful Rainbow Lorikeets in the front yard.
I hope you all have a lovely, safe week…
