Questions 14th October 2019

Why do we have such trouble telling our loved ones that we love them?  Do you have that kind of communication issue with your loved ones?

I have never had a problem telling anyone that l loved them …… l used to tell my mother when l lived at home as a youngster “I love you mummy!” [When really young and “I love you mum!” up to the age of 10.] But when l was 10 years of age, my father told me it was unhealthy to say l loved my mother and forbid me to say it. If l was ever caught saying it l was awarded a spanking. So l stopped telling my mother for years that l loved her. I only started telling my mother l loved her again in my mid forties. My father was a fuckwit and a jealous one at that!

When married my wife told me to stop telling her l loved her, because to say it once daily was not right.

The only woman l have known partnership wise that appreciates being told l love her daily is Suze – for me it’s not a forced admission, l volunteer it to her because it is a truth. Sure l don’t need to tell her, equally as much as l don’t need to say safe journey or drive carefully when she is out – except if ANYTHING was to happen l don’t ever want to be in a position where upon l feel that my partner didn’t know l was with them and always will be.

Decorations for holidays?   Spirit lifters or pain in the butt?   Or a mix?  

I am not bothered by them, but Suze likes to decorate – not all seasonal events but some – however with no children or grandkids close to hand, we are quite minimalistic with them.

Do you donate to charities?  Of your time, do you feel money is the only true gift, or other? 

I do donate monies to charities  and yes of course l worry about where the money is going – but l only donate to charities where upon l know the money is going to the receiver. If more charities were set up to accept helping hands and time over money, l would volunteer a little more – but mostly organisations prefer money. Which is the truest gift? Reflective question – the answer is the individual thought, then time, then monetary.

Are you too superstitious or  have you ever played with a Ouija Board?

Ah! The good ol’ ouija board – the tales l could tell – yes l have more than played with this entity many a time – not all good.



This week please share a photo or image of what ‘harvest’ and “Autumn” mean to you!   Thanks! 

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”

Albert Camus

What l want to see ……


…. the reality of what we have!!


The rain began again. It fell heavily, easily, with no meaning or intention but the fulfilment of its own nature, which was to fall and fall.

  1. We are in perfect agreement as to telling our loved ones safe journey or I love you even when it’s a short trip to the corner market.

    I recently saw an article about a foundation raising money to purchase privately owned sequoia trees here in California. The foundation plans to get the trees and the land ready to eventually turn over to national parks.

    I’ve been to see those majestic thousand year old trees and I fully support their preservation. THAT’S a charity I can support, so I did.

    1. Exactly – a lot of the charities l support are animal and or conservation because l know the money is used for the job at hand – but way too many – well they misuse public money sadly.

      It takes a bit of time and digging around, but some charities need all the help they can get 🙂

  2. Thank you so much Rory for Sharing Your World! I, too, was censured by my husband for saying “I Love You” too much. So I stopped saying it at all. He never told ME the same except on one or two occasions, so perhaps he didn’t need/want to know. His own family were not demonstrative so…no finger pointing by me. Just, as shared before, he died without hearing it. Which I think is very sad. Lovely photos and great quotes too! 🙂
