Welcome to Share Your World!
Melanie over at sparksfromacombustiblemind does a great job of posting fun questions every week. Here is this week’s installment:
Pick three words to describe this past year. (please keep them PG. Thanks).
Uncertain. Calamitous. Unprecedented.
What were the best books you read this year? Or the best movie you saw?
I read several books this year, some old favourites and some new ones. I am a great fan of murder mysteries and thrillers. Two great ones were The Girl In The Spider’s Web and The Girl Who Takes An Eye For An Eye. They were sequels to the Millennium trilogy by the late Stieg Larsson. Written by author David Lagercrantz I enjoyed them even more than the original three books. As for movies and shows that I enjoyed watching this year, you can find out by clicking here.
Because there was lots of time for looking inward, what is one big personal lesson you learned this past year?
I learned many lessons this year. One important one was: “Nothing is as important as we think it is”.
Do you think Covid has strengthened or weakened societal bonds?
I think all kinds of bonds have been strengthened : those between family, friends, co-workers and just about all human beings. The social distancing and isolation has made us realise the value of human interaction.
GRATITUDE SECTION (Optional of course):
What is a New Year’s Wish You’d Like To Share With the World?
I think it is the same wish that people all over the world are making right now — that this horrible pandemic should end and we could go back to life as we knew it in pre-Covid -19 days.
