Sharing my world and thoughts.

Melanie, our gracious host of SYW asks;

Questions

What is one topic you love to talk about?

I love having theological debates. I know it’s not a comfortable topic for many people so I only talk about religion to those who want to have this discussion. Talking about faith to someone who shared my faith helps both of us to understand the minutiae of it better. Some others, willing to discuss theological topics are from different faith and I feel that it’s a great way to learn about their faith.

Ask the wonder question . ‘But so, suppose there was a magical wizard standing right in front of you and you could turn your life into anything you wanted, what would you do?

Hmm….. What an interesting offer. I think perhaps I would like to change my life for that of my grandmother, my mom’s mom. She was born in the early 20th century. Was one of the few educated women of her day. It would be interesting to live in those times when people weren’t even used to indoor plumbing!


Could you adjust to life without any internet?

I think I would adjust to life without the internet after a bit of cursing because, in my life, the internet is quite recent. Before the internet, we used to shop in person, wrote letters by hand, called people on a landline, wrote the monthly expenses on a diary daily, and paid bills by going to the bank. One thing that I’ll miss very much will be blogging. We can devise ways to communicate with each other by writing via snail mail like pen-pals to each other.

What do you think is unique about the human ‘animal’ (homo sapien)?

Humans are the only species on earth that do things out of greed without the need. Like exploiting the resources of our planet, scamming people because they never have enough money, or accumulating wealth and sitting on it just because it gives them a feeling of power.

Gratitude section;

Share some encouraging words that you’d say to someone who was feeling down.

I think that telling people that things will get better when they are feeling down seldom has the desired effect.

Mostly I like to talk about positives in their lives. It often works or I try to make them laugh and feel loved.

On that note here’s Dinky!

Many thanks Melanie for always coming up with new, and interesting questions.

    1. I have it very clear in my head and heart. But faith has so many nuances that I always benefit from a discussion. Besides, the more one thinks and talks about it, the stronger it gets.

  1. Excellent answers and I love sitting with my sisters discussing religion where I don’t have to curb my passion about Islam for fear people think I am pushing my faith on them. Not that they do, but I worry they will nonetheless. I love your kitty. It looks very much like my Ajax.

  2. Thank you Sadje for Sharing Your Beautiful World! The photos are great, and Dinky has grown into a very handsome cat! I agree with your answers and remember my mother telling stories of having to go to the outhouse when she was a girl, and take baths in a big tin tub in front of the kitchen fireplace. I had forgotten that indoor plumbing is a fairly recent invention in comparison to some things. It’s the connectivity that would be lost if the net failed, But perhaps the U.S. Postal Service (which is in a right mess) would be motivated to go back to their former reliable and trust-worthy service. I’ve witnessed how badly things are failing in the delivery chain, not only for snail mail, but for goods and services overall. Covid really threw a big spanner into normal’s wheels in that regard (IMO). I’ve read some of your comments about your faith and you have a wonderful way of describing it and sharing it without being pushy. It’s refreshing and I thank you for the on-going education! 🙂 Have a splendid week!

    1. Thank you Melanie for understanding and being so kind and generous. I hope it never fails, but in absence of internet, we will have to rely on regular mail or perhaps carrier pigeons. 😛

  3. Thanks for sharing your photos, Sadje.

    I think I could live without the internet. I’d read and re-read the books I have, finish my long time pending scrapbook, play board games, and take things slower like the old days.

  4. What an interesting choice of what you would wish your life to be. I don’t think I would take my grandmother’s lives…. they both went through hard times, but to be a best friend to my dad’s grandma… she was such a fun lady for the years I was able to enjoy her company, and I have heard some great stories. Otherwise there is always the rich version of me. LOL!
