Our friend Cee’s having internet issues this week (and who hasn’t experienced that?) so I get to make up my very own Share Your World questions this week. Woo hoo!
Hope your system resolves soon, Cee. Click on over and check out the awesome photography on her blog!
Is your second toe longer than your big toe?
Yep. It turns out this has a name – Morton’s Toe. Internet research (yes, I look up medical stuff on the internet, sue me) tells you about the physiology of Morton’s Toe, but I had this recent consult with someone in holistic medicine who had some interesting notes. Among others, that people who have Morton’s Toe usually don’t remember their dreams and may have a greater tendency toward anxiety or mild depression.
What happens when the dogs dream?
Sometimes my pooches just take a little nap but occasionally they’ll drop into REM sleep. When they’re dreaming I see everything from paws jerking, eyes rolling back so only the whites show, or whiskers and the fur around their eyes twitching. Every so often they’ll even make noises – muted barks and even a high pitched keening once. Bear’s convinced Phoebe’s having a seizure and wants to wake her up but come on…how pissed would you be if someone woke you every time you moved at night?
What’s on your closet floor right now?
Bwahahahahaha!!! Can we say “everything” and leave it at that? There are two baskets of clean (but entirely jumbled up because I keep pulling stuff out) clothes that need to be put away, dirty clothes (because the baskets are full of clean ones), slippers, boots, and random boxes full of stuff that I still haven’t reorganized into our bathroom.
Name five books on your bookshelf.
(Yes, I own real books. Call me old fashioned.)
** When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times by Pema Chödrön.
** Loving What Is by Byron Katie.
** Room by Emma Donoghue.
** Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton
** The Giver, Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son series by Lois Lowry
Name something that inspired you this week.
Watching my friend baptize a baby yesterday. I could tell what a meaningful moment it was for him to be a part of that family’s journey, and that was pretty inspirational.
