Cee’s Share Your World this week:

What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person?

English: Coeur d'Alene Lake.

Wow, I’ve seen so many incredibly beautiful places.  One that’s always stayed in my mind is from when I was about 25 (let’s just say a LONG time ago) and moving to Portland, OR from Chicago.  I drove across 94 into 90 and, several days along, spent a night in Missoula.  The next day I drove and drove and drove in mountains.  Mountains, blue sky and green, on and on.  Then suddenly I rounded a curve and there was Lake Coeur D’Alene  — it was breathtaking.  The memory of that sweeping view of the lake suddenly appearing and driving along beside it has popped into my head periodically ever since.

How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order? 

0.  I’m first last and in the middle 🙂

If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?

Yoga sandals — free, airy, comfy and healthy

What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

Tongue.  I was at a summer program at the Sorbonne and the school organized some lovely weekend getaway/tours we could take.  I was on a trip through Rouen to Mont St. Michel.  The trips included meals and we were at dinner somewhere on the tour on this night (the horror at the food apparently overtook memories of all other details 🙂 ).  The meals were ordered ahead of time and I guess they wanted us to try “the real deal”.  We asked about what we were getting but the French word for “language” and the word for “tongue” are very similar so we were just confused.  Then it arrived and I took a bite and said, “it’s like eating a tongue” — and … we got it…  Yucky!!!

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I’m very grateful for the pulling together that’s going on here; I attended a Muslim Interfaith Dialog last weekend and tonight a rally for supporting refugees. I’m looking forward to attending another event, this time put on by Indivisible.  Not sure where my focus will land, but I’m enjoying taking part in events about supporting ALL our brothers and sisters and seeing the huge groundswell in favor of being inclusive and welcoming.
