Simple Things

The simple things in life are grabbing my attention these days...

Usually too busy to notice I walk right on by.  I must be missing a lot.


  1. Blogging and photography will do that for you!

  2. Adorable! I second that, plus scootering will do that for you, too.

  3. Irondad,
    It's interesting how that happens.

    Did you get a scooter? If not, I might have one for sale.

  4. I have a SilverWing that I need to get rid of first before I can buy something new, but thanks for the offer, Mike. My fellow traveler doesn't allow more than two bikes at a time ;-)

  5. Nice words that strike a chord. I've been trying to pause as I make my way through too...I miss a lot of beauty in the simple things when I don't....

  6. SonjaM,
    You'll enjoy the Vespa that you're considering. It's nice and agile...a lot of fun. Hope you sell the SilverWing soon. Thank you for visiting.

    In our hurried world it's easy to ignore the beauty and design that's all around us. It sometimes takes effort to be aware. Thank you too for visiting.

  7. Mike:

    the slower you go the more you see. I often walk around with my camera and take pictures of lots of things no one else even notices. My friend and I used to go up and down the lanes taking pictures of backyards, clotheslines, etc and we had been stopped by the police on many occassions. Luckily they knew us.

  8. Bob,
    I like your approach to taking pictures. Steve Williams also says taking pictures is like doodling. I've had small bursts in life of doing what you do but I really think blogging has helped with noticing things lately. Also, mixing riding with photos has expanded the possibilities. Life is good!
