Much has been happening but I am leaning toward keeping a photo journal of those sorts of momentous occasions on my flickr instead of throwing a picture up and calling it a post. I have a visitor in town and she is not only keeping me busy, but entertained. I'm 2 for 2 at meeting bloggers! Hooray! We were able to see most of Southern California in a matter of a few days. Lots of driving around and pointing out of landmarks. It has been a lot of fun and I was able to confirm last night that "the cross" is still standing in Ventura. I plan on returning later this week for a photo shoot.
As for the bleak little haiku that I posted last Friday, well, in a summary of only 5 words: I have a big mouth. I speak my mind and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I'm grateful for those closest to me that have come to accept this oft unpleasant aspect of my personality but I have come to learn that not all people are able to accept constructive criticism and more often than not I have to learn to keep my opinions to myself.
Moral of that story: When a problem comes around? I must zip it! *crack the whip*
