“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it…”Georgia O’Keefe

“He who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth is generally considered to be a fortunate person, but his good fortune is small compared to that of the happy mortal who enters the world with a passion for flowers in his soul.” Celia Thaxter

Okay, okay. It’s a macaw in Prague but that doesn’t rhyme.

It’s a Twizy
A cute little Twizy,
Open the door
Drive it off
Oh,
and don’t forget your mom!

(Some of you may be able to prompt your senior cerebellums to recall the Polaroid Swinger jingle? This was my first camera and I still have one shot to prove it. I was about 8 or 9…. The rest of you will have to google this archaic artifact of photographic lore…. See if you can find the jingle. It was awesome…..)

Anyhoo, multi-tasking in Rome. This woman can talk on the phone, open her car door, put her mom in the back seat, talk to me in Italian about her car, and drive off, ALL AT ONCE!
Wow!
I consider myself quite the multi-tasker. But this woman has clearly put me to shame.
And why, for heaven’s sakes, did wordpress print this in red?

Have you ever driven in Rome? I would require medication, even without the multi-tasking.
But, when in Rome…

And finally, does wordpress ever unlike your likes? It does this to me sometimes and it is quite frustrating. I set aside time to read your posts and if I like the post, I indicate it. I go back later and see sometimes that my likes have not recorded. Quite concerning because I want you to know when I like your posts. Has this happened to you?
I guess I have to talk to one of those “Happiness Engineers” at wordpress…..
Cheers & happy weekend.
