share your world, i’m sharing mine

It will be interesting to see how many variations on “share your world” I can create as titles for this¬†challenge. I’ve made it part of the challenge ūüėČ ¬†This is a challenge hosted by Cee Neuner of It is four questions for you to answer each week plus a bonus question of what you are grateful for this week. Questions are in black and my answers, in purple.

Ever ran out of gas in your vehicle?     No but every other thing that can go wrong in a car, has. 

Which are better: black or green olives?     Green, pickled and stuffed.

If you were a great explorer, what would you explore? ¬† ¬† Being an explorer has a different meaning for me since I saw The Revenant with Leo di Caprio. I know Leo was a guide and not an explorer but that lifestyle doesn’t look like¬†it’s for me.¬†

I’m happy exploring anything. A new book, the park down the block, the internet, a new recipe, and the list goes on…

Quotes List: At least three of your favorite quotes?

These are the quotes that get me motivated.

“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” ¬† Winston Churchill

“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. ¬†You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein.” ¬† H Jackson Brown Jr.

This is my contribution to 3 Line Tales РWeek 57 by Sonya.  It is inspired by the photo above, taken by Fleur Treurniet via Unsplash.

I walk up to the safe-house¬†with it’s washed out stonework, it’s blacked out windows and a hastily printed up¬†sign announcing the meeting and stand, silently, in front of the door. This is¬†the last meeting of Unicorn and the decision that will change so many lives is¬†supposed to¬†be made here, today, but I won’t be a part of it and¬†I¬†have already decided to make a short appearance, excuse myself to the washroom and then disappear¬†with the only alien¬†known to exist on earth. It won’t¬†be long¬†before they realize what has¬†happened but with the alien’s¬†powers, it will¬†be long enough for us to disappear forever.
