Share Your World – January 29, 2018


If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?

I was gonna say Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s but then I’d have to tote all that stuff home so I will say  They deliver. You can space out the deliveries and basically they have everything one could desire.

What is the worst thing you ate recently?

Well I try to stay away from food that upsets my stomach which would include fast food so I leave Mickey D’s, Popeyes and all those other greasy food joints alone.  I’m trying to get back into eating healthy or at least less of the bad stuff



Name five things you like watching…

The ocean waves ebb and flow along the beach.

Waves along any body of water

The Night Sky.  When I was a kid I Loved being outside in the summer observing the stars and making wishes





People watching at the Park especially Central Park or at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Artists at work.  The Main Bldg where I used to work has a Copyist program. Copyists are Art Students and/or Professional Artists who come to copy the Old Masters Paintings.  Fascinating.  I’ve had the opportunity to see artists from all over the world. Even made friends with a few. Incredible talents and gifts.

Subway Artists & Musicians and Street Performers.


Nature. Animals. Birds flying, Butterflies, cats, dogs mostly my crazy cat Sylvester.

Parades ~~  New York City has parades for every ethnic group in the city.  I’ve seen the St. Patrick’s Day, African-American, Puerto Rican and Steuben Day Parades.

Notice I did not say TV because I do not own a TV. Gave it up years ago.  Now I do watch Forensic Science, Mysteries, History shows and of course Hair videos on YouTube and movies on Netflix.

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


As Always Stephen received an Excellent report at AABR his Day Program/Training Center!  Go Stephen!! He continues to excel in every way! My brother Stephen is my Super Hero!!

Instagram Fun, Happiness & Joy


Instagram Fun, Happiness & Joy


Ladies & Gentlemen, Loyal and Trusted Followers!  First I want to send you Tremendous Thanks for Following me on Espiritu en Fuego and on my Photography Blog Roaming Urban Gypsy.

Feel free to join me on Instagram.  The link is listed below.  Some folks dislike Instagram which like that old Bobby Brown song is Their Prerogative.  I have found Instagram to be an Excellent Platform for my photography.  I can share my photos and get feedback from other photographers.

One does not have to be a professional photographer and of course you will find family vacation photos and pictures of every day life.  Instagram gives a peek into the lives of people around the world.  It’s a great way to connect with people you might not meet on Facebook or WordPress.

As most of you know I work as a Museum Security Guard.  Many if not most of my co-workers are extremely talented and gifted artists.  Yes they do have their own personal shows but Instagram provides a way to showcase their work to those who cannot attend their shows or who live far away.

Does it have issues?  Naturally!  What social media does not but just like Facebook and WordPress ~~  Use that Block and Report Button.  Overall my experience on Instagram has been wonderful.  I’m happy to have joined this medium.  I will continue to use it and enjoy sharing with others as well as enjoying the photos fellow contributions.

Maybe Instagram does not have the “Gravitas” that certain people expect or look for but sometimes it’s all about Fun and Enjoyment.  The same way that years ago my Dad used to show family, friends and subject my potential boyfriends all those Koda Chrome Slides dating back to the early 1950s (And Yes I still have my Dad’s Slides but no Slide projector).

Pretty much nobody has or uses Koda Chrome slides or slide projectors. My Dad used to have most of his photographs develop as slides or prints.  Those of you born in the 40s, 50s, & 60s remember taking your film to be develop. Now I’m sure that still exists and professional photographers still use film that has to be developed but it’s a rare occurrence.

With the advance of technology and the advent of digital cameras and cell phones that take photos that are just as good if not better than cameras we are in a new age.  Yes that does mean there will be crappy photos but just don’t follow photos you don’t like. Change the Channel.  Any type of change or progress comes with pluses and minuses.

I do plan to honor my Dad, Edward G. Palmer by digitizing his slides and creating, developing a Photography show to give Daddy the exposure that he did not get while he was alive.  I salute both Old & New Technology.  Having a Good Time on Instagram.






Life of a donkey

Animals are God’s Creation. We must protect them, keep them safe and take good care of all animals. Remember Jesus rode a Donkey into Jerusalem. Spread Love to All Species.

Making memories

Donkey SanctuaryDonkeys are the most misunderstood and abused animals around the world.

  Bonnie Jo Campbell

Last summer I visited The Donkey Sanctuary farm in Liscarroll, Co Cork. The farm is a home for 127 donkeys ( the number might have changed), but the Sanctuary has over 1800 donkeys in their care, about 500 of them re-homed. How did it happen that so many donkeys had to be rescued? Sadly, in order to claim agricultural subsidies many farmers use donkeys as a low-cost means of reaching the minimum stocking density required. The cost of castrating the young males is far higher than their value, and the donkeys that are left to fend for themselves in the fields would breed all the year round. Also, if a donkey gets sick it is often cheaper to buy a new donkey than to take it to the vet. On Done Deal website you can…
