Kindness

We attempted to park our cars in the same space, no problem, she was there first.  As I walked into the store, so did she, she held the door for me, I got her a shopping cart, we went our separate ways....until, she asked my advice on a paint color, I asked her what she wanted to express, she said "kindness". We chatted a while and then went our separate ways....until, we were leaving. We walked out of the store together discussing art, weather, and the beauty of the day. She got in her car and left, I did the same. 

We were connected with mutual kindness, it's out there and its good.

Diversion

Are we all guilty of diversion? Do you know what I am referring too? An example, (hypothetically) you need to do a task, pay bills, do launder, wash the car, any small everyday chore. However, you choose to sweep the floor, clean out a random closet or give the cat a bath, well maybe not give the "cat" a bath, but you know what I mean. Your mind diverts in a million different directions, avoiding the task at hand. Why? Do you pre-empt your decisions with other decisions, "before I can do this I need to......" 

My blog has been my "road not taken". Excuse? Well, I wanted load more photos of art. But my camera battery is dead, the card is full, which means a trip to the store, so I might as well do a little shopping while I'm out.... Again diversion.  My solution, I am going to embrace my blog, love my blog, become one with my blog.

Diversion? I'll keep some on reserve for future use, you feel free to do the same.
