Some days (or hours, or weeks, or months, or years), you just can’t get it together. Currently, I’m busy rocketing at warp speed from one personal or work crisis to another, and don’t have a bloggable thought in my head. Well, I did think it might be nice to talk about the newly discovered frog from Asia with fangs, that eats birds. Maybe later.
So at times like these, I try to catch up on what other people on my blogroll are writing about. There aren’t many of them, which is a good thing. If I add one more, I will become paralyzed by inaction (a primary symptom of crisis-hopping).
So today I will do shameless plugs for other people. Not that long ago I did a plug for Davis W who is the funniest person you never met. This link will refer you to his website review of GetMotivated.com. This is a must-read for those of you who are rocketing from one crisis to the next. In the small-world category, Davis used to live in Tallahassee, where I currently live, although I had no idea about that when I began reading his blog.
Now I introduce you to masteroftheuniverse, aka, Jeff Watson. Currently Jeff is in the middle of a sort of quest, which might be called spiritual in nature, although I hesitate to use that word because a) it may be presumptuous, and b) I don’t like to draw attention to myself in such matters, since I may be struck by lightning. Jeff is probably the most interesting person you never met. I can’t do justice to him by attempting to describe him…his own words are much better.
I’m going to show you the photo that appears in the blog entry linked above. I don’t feel TOO bad about this, he has after all put it out there on the Internet himself, but I think this is a photo he could sell. It’s astonishing. I know a smidgen about photography, and in large part it involves having a good camera and being there at the moment it happens, whatever “it” is. (The so-called “F-8 and Be There” rule.) But you can satisfy those requirements and still take a bad picture, because it takes an imagination. First to see that the picture is possible, and second to snap it at the right moment, at the right angle. You have to have an “eye”. Happy viewing.
