Happy Monday, my friends! It’s cool here this morning, reminding me of fall and the passing of the seasons, even in Southern California. Melanie starts our week off right with Share Your World, but today I’m flipping her script and beginning at the end. She asks for our personal affirmation, and mine is in the lovely image above: this too shall pass. Whenever I have a bad day, or start down memory lane and get sad, I remind myself that nothing lasts. For me, that’s a good thing. Now onto the questions…
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Absolutely! I’m all talk and no action, and that the way I like it.
What does the world need less of?
People. Pollution. Politics.
Do you feel older or younger than your age?
I feel 60, which I am. I definitely do not feel young, trapped in an old body. My body is achy and tired and likes to stay on the sofa. I don’t want to do the things I did 40 years ago. Some people my age are still running around dating and drinking and searching for excitement. Not me! I am very happy to be a sedate grandma, getting vicarious thrills from books and movies. Maybe that makes me sound older than my age? Fair enough.
What is a cause you’ll always passionately support?
I am passionately supportive of a woman’s right to choose to terminate a pregnancy for any reason in the first trimester (12 weeks). Please note both caveats. I am not on board with the lists of exceptional circumstances, as I don’t believe you need to justify your desire to end your pregnancy ~ in the first 12 weeks. After that, I think there has to be a serious reason, such as a danger to the mother’s physical health. So I am at odds with both polarized positions on this issue, which is fine with me because I dislike extreme stances.
I don’t want my comment section to turn into a flamewar, so if you disagree with me about abortion (from either side), go post about it on your own blog. Thanks for understanding!
