Tuesday's Orts

Orts--bits and scraps of thoughts and events that land here occasionally. 
•While shopping at JoAnn's on Saturday, a customer recognized me, though I couldn't place her immediately. Turns out we worked together years ago at a psychiatric group. She was kind enough to say I looked the same. At least I think it was kind!
• My sister Kathy has both "shiny object" and "toy" attraction disease. At JoAnn's she found much to play with. Most prominent were feather wands. The grin on her face was irresistible. 
Traffic Rant:  As I was driving back home from work on the freeway and approached an incoming off ramp, the driver of a supposedly merging car STOPPED at the end of the ramp, which forced me to have to accelerate and change lanes in front of a semi to pass his stopped car. Grrrr!
• Doing pretty well with the action phrase of the year so far--follow through--it feels good to immediately act on a "should" thought, as in "I should call-water-clean-sort-find", etc. I've also included inspiration thoughts as well, when a creative idea hits. That's fun!
• Now that is only semi-dark in the mornings, the bus ride includes some beautiful sunrises. And moonsets, like this one last Friday. 
Not a bad shot from a moving bus, with an iPhone!

Wow, that is an awesome picture. Especially considering it's from a moving bus, lol. I think I have SOAD (shiny object distraction disorder) as well ;-)

Beautiful picture, and I don't miss freeway driving at all. Unfortunately, I'm so out of practice with it, it makes me very nervous when we have to go to the "big city."

I like the sound of your sister-Im the grown up in Toys R Us that is riding bikes down the aisles. Imagine the damage she and I could do together!

I like your word. I think I need to adopt it round here .

Fantastic picture!

That photo is amazing. It may inspire a new gradient.

Beautiful sunrise! One of the nicest parts of the day is seeing the night become day.
