Sharing My World 2016 Week 3

It’s time again for my post for Cee’s Share Your World.


What is your favourite piece of art? (it doesn’t have to be famous)
Hmm, I really just like what I like (I’m interpreting “art” as traditional paintings/pictures/sculptures for the purpose of this question). Nothing in particular. For example, the “Mona Lisa” may be an exceptionally famous piece of art, but to me it’s just a painting of a woman. I don’t see why it’s so “exceptional”.

On the other hand, I think this picture (done by my friends’ older son on the back of an off-cut of wallpaper when he was, I think, eight [EDIT – his mum has told me he was only five!]) is so good I framed it and hung it over my fireplace.


What made you smile today?
Well, nothing yet. I’ve only been awake for two hours. And I’ve been watching “Scream” (the series) on Netflix, which is very good but nothing to smile about, what with all the dead teenagers and whatnot.

Which place do you recommend as a Must-See? Please state which country, state or province.
Tricky, very tricky. There are so many lovely places that if asked to choose I’ll have to go for Cornwall, UK, since I live here. You can see loads of photos if you click on my “Photos” category, but here’s a little taster.

Complete this sentence: When I was younger I used to…
… wish I was older. Now I wish I was younger :-). But retain all my current life experiences and acquired “wisdom” so I could make better choices. I know. It’s a big ask.

    The art is amazing.

    I remember wanting to be older too. But also wanting to keep the knowledge and experience I worked so hard to get. And I have it. Pity it comes with a creaky old body 😁

      It’s like life’s all topsy-turvy or something. Why can’t we be young and wise simultaneously?

    Good answers, Ali. I’m amazed that 5-year-old child had such a marvelous sense of color. I think I would have hung it also. I agree that Cornwall is beautiful. 🙂 — Suzanne

      Yes, he did a great job!
      I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures of Cornwall 🙂

    It is indeed a big ask.
    Nice painting.

    I think the artwork is amazing! I’ll bet daVinci couldn’t paint on the back of wallpaper…

      No, he was all hoity-toity and insisted on canvas and whatnot. The mad fool.

    The painting is wonderful and I’m sure looks beautiful hanging on your fireplace. I too wish I were younger, having the wisdom and knowledge that I have now so I can make better choices and decisions. If only…

    I wish the same thing and FIVE…wow..he’s a talent!


    • January 24, 2016 at 5:21 pm

      Yeah, I was thinking he’d painted it shortly before I got it (hence eight), but no. Only five!

      Thanks, it’s easy to take good photos of such lovely scenery!

    The little boy of the paiting must be a born artist. Very well done! The pictures are so beautiful, Draliman..and it is not only because the place is. About the last question….we wished we were younger too now…sigh… 😀 Pawkisses 🙂 ❤

      I imagine many of us would like 10-20 years taken off! I’m glad you liked the photos and the painting 🙂

    Your photos of nature are fantastic!
    Enjoying your age and where you are is a gift.

    Thought provoking post.

      I’m glad you liked the photos.
      I doubt many people are ever happy with the age they are at any given moment!
