Early Bird Special

The blue sky is broken up with a cloud shape assortment -- is that Grover? Twittering birds are flitting about in search of the morning bite. Grandma always said "if you're not five minutes early, you're late," so I keep trying to be on time. To be early. Good for the bird --- terrible for the worm.

There's not a lot of positive feedback on being late for things. Being late could mean you lose that "BIG" deal, don't get great concert seats, miss the lunch special, have to wait for the next ferry, have an angry client, or you're greeted by a locked door and only get to watch yoga class from the clear glass on the wrong side of the door. However, being late can also be a good thing: you miss out on being involved in that car pile up, a new one is on the way or if you are a mouse you can step over your cousin and have a cheesy snack.

Best wishes to the worms who are late sleepers . . .

Wave at the Nat

Once when i was surfing in Waikiki a wave rolled along and invited me for a ride. Ahhh, what a glorious journey. On and on it flowed and then I got to that iffy spot where the frothy foam is almost all gone and the original swell is all but forgotten and with a little bit of sidesteppin' and slight maneuvering, we slid on, my board and I. Onward atop the billowy froth of the next waterous flowing hill. On it went, carrying my exhilerated body almost to the brink of the Natatorium. Grinning from ear to ear with a little triumphant jiggle and then fell into the bath-warm, salty Pacific. What a ride! Ever so gentle, not very large, and only because I was there at the right rime and accepted such a swell invitation.

Planned Sponteity

Spontaneity: undetermined action or movement . . . and here it is! It's not so much the "what" it's the fact that you know you will do something. The first of many to come. I'm sure. I had thought for months about how to open with a bang and be regimented with a daily or weekly blog. Wrestled with various "appropriate" blog names that would be appealing to many and catchy and . . . well, it has been determined that instead of having a board meeting and a consulting group I will just go with it. Spontaneously. Thoughts, concerns, brilliant ideas (?!), well, we shall see.

Act 1. Script page 1. Like a hike in the jungle or a run on the beach, it's not the destination that is the goal here, but the journey. . .
