Share Your World 2014–Week 28

Have you ever been a participant in a parade? What did you do?
Yes, I have been in many parades, both as my self  or as a clown character.  (Some day I may write a blog post about that:)
I was a professional clown for 5 years and during that time I participated in many activities, including parades. 
Also, as a dance team member, I participated in a couple of parades as myself, and in one parade, our dance team won a trophy!
All very lovely memories!

If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why?
I would definitely go!  I have never been to an opera, but really want to attend one.  On my “bucket list”!

Why did you start your blog?
I enjoy sharing photographs and poetry that hopefully inspires.

What is your favorite tradition? (family tradition, church tradition, whatever)
I guess my favorite tradition would be spending holidays with my family.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful that last week I recovered quickly from a bad head cold that came upon me suddenly and spoiled some beautiful hot summer days for me!   This week I am looking forward to just enjoying what each day brings as I have a few days off from work and the weather forecast looks lovely!  Maybe I will just decide to go and spend a day at the Zoo!  🙂  (If I do–watch for some Zoo photos to come!)
