* Sharing my world

I love Cee’s Share Your World weekly challenge.  Her answers are always interesting; can’t wait to see more nighttime photography.  What about a video of your tripod adventures, Cee?

What one word describes you best?  I used Wordle to create this word cloud.  Simply type in text and it will automatically generate a cool design based upon frequency of words.  You can adjust the color and layout, too.  And it’s FREE!

What is set as the background on your computer?  Oh boy,  I had to look.  It’s the plain old Windows design.  I always have so many windows open that I can’t see the background.  If I make it attractive with horse pictures, I’m too distracted!

If you have been to a foreign country, name those you have been to.  I started off in a “foreign country,” having been born in the UK.  I’m sure my UK readers do NOT think of themselves as foreign!  I’ve also been to Germany, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Austria, and Iceland.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.  

I was inspired by the artistic performance, “Joy in the Morning,” at Colonial Williamsburg.  The performance celebrates the strength and character of the enslaved people of that era, along with their struggles and despair.  I had a chance to chat with the performers after the show; they are passionate about their work, sharing the story of a population stolen from their homelands and brutalized as slaves.  I find myself focusing on the last names of black people, knowing that the Washingtons’ roots, for instance, most likely can be found in Washington’s plantation.  Good old George did not have any white sons….
