 Color. . .  As I walked by three different buildings  recently, I noticed the colors.  Individually as well as how they seemed to blend together even though each was unique.   A moment of serendipity?  Perhaps.  But while these things sometimes stand out, the world of color continues to emerge i...
 Okay, It's Not Synchronized Swimming...  One of my walking routes takes me by a gym.  Indoor gyms are not currently permissible in Los Angeles County so this particular business which is in a large office complex has moved outside utilizing their nice corner location.   Equipment has been reloca...
 My Six Words. . .    Yesterday, I wrote a post about expressing gratitude and thankfulness in six words or less.  It is certainly challenging and some members promptly participated with excellent responses in their comments.   After pondering along with some(as in lots of) editing, my six words ...
 In Just Six Words...  Last week I read an online article.   Then a few days later, I saw something similar on a friend's Facebook page.  It  seemed appropriate for this time of year as well as for everyday life in general.   Tell us what you are thankful for in six words or less.  In this year, ...
 November 2020 Challenge   I have read many of the posts submitted for the November challenge hosted by Jeff Dowler, CRS.  As usual, I am impressed by those who have stepped forth to share their stories.   This month is a bit different with multiple opportunities to reflect on the different aspec...
 Thinkwhole. . .   A few days ago I read a story of a sinkhole occurrence.  They don't happen here with any regularity but the thought of anything related to a sinkhole seems kinda ominous maybe even a bit scary to me.   However, rather than dwell on the rare possibility of a horrific underground...
 Tall Dark And Handsome   Many years ago, I remember meeting a listing agent towards the end of a transaction where we hadn't previously met in person.  I don't recall anything unusual about that particular deal but I do recall that day.   It was an early morning  for the final walk-through.   Wh...
 Passages. . .   A while back I was reading an article and it made mention of author Gail Sheehy.  It had been years since I heard anyreference to her and immediately thought of her best-selling 1976 book, Passages.   Coincidentally, I was thinking of passages  of one particular kind.  About a  y...
 Sharpening My Pencil   I recently read an article which mentioned, in part, Tori Amos.  I recognized her name.  Her talents as a performer and as a  songwriter too.   But not much else beyond that seemed to resonate with me.   Of course, my musical knowledge of any genre is, to say the least, qu...
 Capturing Moments Of Glee  I am the first say(and admit) I have no photography skills.  Despite that gift of her no longer-used camera many decades ago from my Grandmother, it didn't inspire me to take up photography.   Sure, there were moments of childhood picture-taking experimentation.  Out-o...
