What's Our Obligation?

Who wants to do anything insignificant?

young acorn
Noticed this year’s budding acorns for the first time yesterday. In a few months, the green center will consume the brown outer shell. Few people realize it ever looks like this. i didn’t.

 

caterpillar on wall
On the tall block wall, this caterpillar stood out. It’s colored to blend in with nature. The wall is not nature. Photo angle is looking down at the ground (three feet away).

 

apple odometer
Just over two miles to walk to the gym yesterday.

 

The daily incremental improvement is discounted because it’s so small.

Insignificant.

Who wants to do anything that’s insignificant?

Literally no one.

And yet, really, is there an easier way to significant improvement?

What do you notice and why, and do you like what you see?

Abe Lincoln painting
In the picture you can tell who it is. Originally in person, i couldn’t.

 

Today’s bike ride to the gym is going to be chilly.

Shirtless rides are over for the next five months, until March.

Our home windows will go up today, during the day.

And, before i forget, when i weighed myself an hour ago, i weigh what i did as a High School senior.

Oh , and one more thing, we fly at noon tomorrow for my 40th High School reunion.

Serendipity is a real thing.

Still a noticer?

Florida Blossom Orange
Literally all the Orange Groves in Southwest Orange County are gone.

 

Literally all the Orange Groves in Southwest Orange County are gone.

Except one.

i pass it going to and from the gym.

Calf pain has me back on a bicycle – 25 miles roundtrip yesterday.

The smell of orange blossoms stopped me in my tracks.

The first orange blossom smell of the season only happens once each year.

The easy choice would have been to keep peddling and not take a photo.

The other easy choice would have been to not cycle 25 miles roundtrip just to squeeze in a light workout before catching a 1:25pm Southwest flight.
