A Rock Feels No Pain

This-N-That (Meandering thoughts, again!)

Ups and downs, the past week, but it seems as if once more, all I have to do is learn how to let stuff roll past, not bug me. I’m tryin’, okay? 🙂 Not the easiest thing for me to do, I’m analytical by nature; but that seems to lead to stress, so I’m doing my thing, trying to not worry about things. We’ll see how that goes, but so far I think I’m managing.

Have to go to Sacramento, CA, in a couple of weeks. I’ve spent a bit of time in Palm Springs, and a while just north of San Diego, umpteen years ago; but never anywhere in Northern California, at all. I was thinking of taking a weekend on the end, to go over to San Francisco, which I’ve never seen and always wanted to, but that’s not working out. So I’m flying west on a Sunday, and get home at ungodly hours on the Friday night. Oh well, I’m going to bring my camera along, and see if I can find some time to explore a new place, anyway.

Fighting off colds and sinus infections and coughs and other icky things around this house, the past couple of weeks, which is miserable and boring for all concerned. Ah well, it do happen like that sometimes, but I sure hate when the kids are sick; as I tell my daughter, “Dad’s want to be able to just take all the sicks from you, ‘cuz our stomachs are tougher, and we don’t want you to feel bad.” She agrees with me, that it’s too bad there isn’t a “Dad take the bug away” button; she plans to invent it, when she’s a Doctor. Good plan baby!

Thinking of photographs, I have two more that I’m pretty pleased with- these were in New York City, after the training class one evening. I had stopped to buy a new camera case/laptop case, a backpack style, for those times I want both- also, a backpack is easier than a regular camera bag, on my shoulder and neck. Outside the photo store, in City Hall Park, was this gaslight, that I thought made a neat picture.

    Hey Sailor! Wonderful pics!! I hope you all are feeling much better soon. Plz do share your photos from Cali! Northern Cali is a beautiful place. I really think you will enjoy it.

    btw, You have such a wonderful blog. I really enjoy reading what you have written. It is nice to have a place where we can all be ourselves and just say what we feel.

    I am trying to be better at letting my feelings out. As my reply to you on my blog, I just get scared sometimes. The whole scaring someone away thing… It is nice to know that I can let my feelings out and have someone as youself say it’s ok to feel the way I do. It makes things so much better.

    I hope you have fun in California. You must return with loads of pics. I hafta see ’em. You will be missed while you’re away.

    You have to see San Francisco. Except see it when it’s not raining.

    I love that black and white image. Very lovely!

    So far, minus this migraine that I fear wants to worm its way out of my brain (an act I think I’d welcome right now for how could it be more painful?) today, we’ve all been healthy this season. I may be jinxing my family by admitting that! I would pay whatever was necessary to have a ‘take away’ button!
