Lookin' Up





Isn't that a great picture? I don't know its provenance; I got it in one of those ever-circulating e-mails. I like it, though. To me, it says "the sky is smiling."

It's a relatively tame Tuesday around here for a change. I've whipped my workload into submission -- for the nonce, anyway. Lord knows, it can (and will) multiply again at any time. Right now, it's manageable, and the here and now is what's important to me.

I don't think so much about the future. Never have. I tend to live in the moment. I realize, of course, that I'm hardly a kid any more and some future events do require some forethought. I'm working on that. Honest. There is this nebulous plan that's taking real, honest to God shape and just might be viable at some point while I'm still alive. If it comes to pass, I'll let y'all know. Honest (assuming I'm not senile by then and can remember who you are).

Anyway, today is today and that's consuming all my thought processes until tomorrow. It helps to think that the sky is smiling. A lot.

Maybe it's smiling at these naughty little blasfomys TWISTED LINGUISTICS picked up today.

lo bak - Chinese chiropractor.

dogcather - I'm terribly afraid this has something to do with a canine medical procedure; not something I'd care to do.

lude comment - Trying to talk when you've taken too many Qualudes.

please reframe from comments - Do not speak until you rethink and restate what you just said.

bare down - Get naked.

I never think of the future either, but I do spend time thinking about the distant past for some reason. Lately I have been thinking of ages 12-14 for some reason and I don't know why; like that acting class I quit and woder what if.

Fey was a big nothing yesterday and I could not even enjoy the day off because of the chance that it might have become something. Now I have to work for yesterday AND today. Blah! So I have no time to convict the words today...those lucky words.

PS-great photo!

VE said...

ha ha. It's a great photo until they fly over you and crap on your shoulder that is...

Serena Joy said...

You made some very good catches there, Bilbo, albeit I'm shuddering a bit at the thought of smoking dried wildcat dung. LOL.:-)

I love the picture, too, Fancy. Hope all's well with you.:)

Dang, Kan, that's tough when you have to work for yesterday AND today. Don't worry too much about the future. Yet. You have plenty of time.:)

I did think of that possibility, VE, but the photo's so great I'd be willing to take my chances. What are water hoses for, after all?:)

It always seems to smile just before depositing bird poop on your shoulder. Stevie Ray Vaughan knew this ... that's why he sang that the sky was cryin'.

Serena Joy said...

Yeah, that's true, Puggy. I miss Stevie Ray.

Corn Dog said...

That is the best picture. Beautiful sky too. Makes me all smiley. I think I need ice cream now.

G-Man said...

Thinkin about the future eh?
I do tend to live for today, but I also have found myself thinking that there could be something happier in store for me..
Especially after tonight..Grrrrrrrrr
xobgxo

Serena Joy said...

Yes, Galen, I guess it's time. I don't want to be caught off guard and have the future hit me upside the head with no preparation. We all deserve to be happy in our old age. Sorry about your bad night; hope tomorrow's MUCH better.:)

It's a GREAT time for ice cream, CD. I had some tonight -- chocolate fudge brownie. Enjoy!:)
