Share Your World — Human Nature

Share Your WorldIt’s Monday and that means that Melanie is back with her Share Your World prompt. So let’s do this.

What was the last TV show you binge-watched? If you don’t watch TV (congratulations by the way) what’s the last thing you binged ON?

Actually, at Melanie’s recommendation, I started to watch “The Brokenwood Mysteries” last night on Amazon Prime. I watched the first episode of season one of this seven season crime drama that takes place in the small town of Brokenwood in Australia, where troubled DCI Mike Shepherd solves murders while searching for redemption. Episode one was good enough to prompt me to watch episode two. When I tried to do that, though, I learned that I’d have to pay $4.99 to watch each additional episode. NFW!So, I am going to go with the show that I binge-watched just before I attempted to binge watch this one. That show was “Hinterland,” a noir crime drama set in the small town of Aberystwyth, Wales, where troubled DCI Tom Mathias solves murders while searching for redemption. I enjoyed it.

What’s your most prized possession and why?

My iPhone. Were it not for my iPhone, I wouldn’t be in the process of posting my response to Melanie’s SYW prompt.

If you had the time and inclination, what would you volunteer for?

I have the time, but I lack the inclination. Sorry about that.

Do you think that humans will ever be able to live together in harmony?

It’s not in our nature to live together in harmony. We seem more inclined to seek and act out upon our differences and we seem to thrive on conflict.

    I was looking up the name of a book, last night; something like Raising Children with a Jerk. It was recommended to me by an attorney. The idea is that the person who cares the least (about happy things) counts most, in effect to some extent.

    I didn’t think of this, last night, but what is crossing my mind now is the baby in the Solomon story. Not everyone is a jerk or trying to have conflict or be destructive or greedy. But many more are involved in conflict than seek it or cause it.

    I don’t think it’s human nature or necessary that humans live in conflict, unhappy or dominating and being dominated. But, since there are people who like things to be that way, then we have to continually work against that. The meek will inherit.

    Those who keep advocating for indifference toward their neighbor/s (other than to affirm and cheer their comparative failure if they are anything like meek) are like she who said to divide the baby.

    I haven’t seen Brokenwood. I have seen a few episodes of Hinterland and didn’t mind it. The Welsh location was the main attraction. I preferred Shetland, same scenario different location, an island off the coast of Scotland.

    If you pay a really nominal fee (I think I pay $5.00 per month or something to subscribe to Acorn (or Britbox), I get all the Brokenwood Episodes for free, plus a shite ton of other really good British mysteries – notably A Touch of Frost, Lewis, Midsomer Murders, Vera…the list is long and varied. Maybe that’s the solution? I’m glad you enjoyed the first episode though! Thanks so much for Sharing Your World Fandango! I’d have guessed (accurately) that your phone would be your most prized possession. Where would WE be if you couldn’t connect? We’d be lost too! No worries about not being inclined to volunteer – not a lot of folks (particularly in your demographic) feel very safe doing that now. Covid might be quashed (for the time being), but it really still isn’t that safe out there and to me? You’ve earned a nice rest if you want it! You’ve probably more than done your bit over your life! Have a great week!

    Good answers. I think a lot of us would agree that our phone is at least in the top 5 of things we couldn’t do without or our prized possessions.
