Thank you Cee for Share Your World.  Here are my answers.

Do you ever sit on a park bench for more than ten minutes?

Rarely.  I like to be busy.  Normally in a park I will be wandering around bushes and trees looking for birds and even little bugs and butterflies.

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles, turn on the flashlight or use your cell phone for light?

When my children lived at home we would sit with a candle and play scrabble.  We never minded the electricity failing.

Now, I have a powerful torch that I keep charged.  It maintains it’s light for about two hours so at least I can read.

Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers?

Just this week I followed The Bhambayi Trail which takes you to the home of the late Mahatma Ghandi where he lived for 21 years.

From his house we walked into the surrounding informal settlement.  Although this area is alive with folk trying to make a living, there is a huge need to help make life a little easier.  They need clean water, electricity, toilets and disposal of waste.   I would be grateful for this money to use anonymously and lighten the load of these beautiful friendly people.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?

This week I came to appreciate the bonds of a family.

On Monday (6th November), it would have been my parent’s 63rd wedding anniversary.  My siblings and myself decided to celebrate their lives and love for each another just once more.

We spent a few days in my father’s favourite Game Reserve.  On the Monday we made a breakfast just like he loved to do at Nsumu Pan.  Here we remembered our parents and the love they had for us.
