This challenge seems particularly vague to me. Everything surrounds everything. Nothing exists in a vacuum except the dirt and dog hairs from my carpet. We can choose to surround ourselves with wonderful music, (or noise), beauty, good weather. and pleasant people. Or we can be forced into uncomfortable surroundings out of our control, or we can accidentally fall into uncomfortable surroundings. Surrounds also provide good fodder for complaining, as in my internet surroundings this past two weeks. I think I’ll go with pleasant surroundings, if you don’t object. Unpleasant ones might be more interesting, but then I don’t claim to be interesting, just alive.
As wonderful as beautiful physical surroundings are, however, if I am surrounded with good people, wherever I am, even on the phone, internet or in person, I am blessed.
