Daily Prompt: Jack Of All Trades

Standard

If the world worked on a barter system, how would you fare? Would you have services to barter? Would you be successful, or would you struggle?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SKILL.

The world on a barter system, hmm… people helping each other, what a concept.  I’d like to think I’d be ok, I’m fairly well-rounded when it comes to skills. This all really depends if our world would be the same as it is now. Do we still have modern conveniences, have we moved back one hundred years?

I don’t mind helping out, I like being part of a “team effort for the good of the whole”, sort of thing.

Why don’t we go one step farther, and say that the human race has realized consuming animal products is a thing of the past. The planet we live on can no longer support the millions of “animals”, we raise for food.

There would certainly be an opportunity to help people understand this new way of eating. I’m always trying new vegan foods, I love experimenting, so I would certainly have services to offer in this area.

I can plant a garden, even though my rows are crooked, I’ve never thought the carrots minded being extra close to the beets. If a riot in the veggie patch is the least of our worries, I think we’ll be ok.

Cake decorating, sewing, painting walls, I’m pretty sure I’d think of something to offer. Most of us are able to do more than we think. In this crazy modern world, it’s easy for “manual skills”, to be looked upon as non-essential. When it comes right down to it… I take comfort in knowing I’d be able to do more than “push a button”, waiting for the replicator to make my cheesecake.

Daily Prompt: Sliced Bread In Outerspace

Standard

Most of us have heard the saying, “That’s the best thing since sliced bread!” What do you think is actually the best thing since sliced bread?

How about the smell of bread while it is baking?

On a more global note, I would have to say the best thing since sliced bread is the ease of communication in today’s world. I mean, think about it. You can have a conversation with someone on the other side of the world, while looking at them, in most cases it takes seconds to connect.

A hundred years ago people would not even have dreamed about this being possible, yet here we are, it’s like techno magic.

We can send a letter to the other side of the world in a very short time, even though it will be costly, it can be done.

“I don’t think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread into space” Stephen Hawking

Now that, would be some phone call.

Have a great day everyone.

Daily Prompt: Quote Me

Standard

An interesting prompt for today, I have a mental file of my favorites.

Words have such power, they flow  through our very soul and settle in a place unseen by others. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, at times this may be true, but without the words to describe that amazing picture the true meaning would be lost.

Here are two of my favorites:

“Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers”.
Isaac Asimov

Isaac_Asimov

What a true gift to be able to do this, and do it well, that is real talent.

The next one is a line from one of my favorite movies, Terms Of Endearment.

“I’d rather stick needles in my eyes”   Jack Nicholson

On days when I’m feeling a bit challenged, I think, “hmm I wonder if it works”

Have a great day everyone!
