Monday: Motivation, Mindless Meandering and Junk Mail

21 May

If you are the author of one of the many blogs that I follow, rest assured, I read your stories, poems and enjoy your photos. I often get motivated by your words. This morning, I was commiserating with the dieting waitress about her struggles to lose weight and keep up with exercise while working two jobs. I commented on her post, “You are an inspiration. I’m going to go and do some sit ups right now.” Guess what? I closed my iPad, turned on HGTV for background noise, and did 200 sit ups. See, I do get inspired!

Dan motivates me with his historical photos, Seth has knock-down gorgeous photos, and Becca is one wild and crazy gal. I get tips on writing, poetry, blogging, art and more. The blogging world is amazing.

After my inspirational exercise, I hopped in the car and drove over to Office Max to get some copies made of some of my artwork and photos. When you’re an artist, you get to know your friendly neighborhood copy guys. Here’s Daniel at the computer and Chris’ arm. Hi Guys!


Next stop, Bed Bath and Beyond to buy some more wine glasses for painting. Then, next door to Half Price Books to check out the art books. I always find something good. A couple hours fly by, and I haven’t had lunch. Panera is my favorite people watching spot, (that isn’t on the Square.) Good time to check more emails and blogs. (I didn’t mention that all these places were within walking distance.)

Enough meandering, the dogs are home and getting hungry too.


Oops! I needed a couple things from the store. Sorry puppies! Market Street was on the way home. I picked up a few things and scurried home, grabbing the mail on my way in the door. The mailbox was jam packed with junk mail. What’s with that? I think five full grown trees died just for today’s pile of paper. Don’t you hate that?


Well, that was my day of meandering. Now we’ll see what inspiration arrives in my inbox tomorrow.
