Project 313 – Post No. 114

Another Sunday . . . I should say something profound; something dignifying the day with reverent — albeit, inane — banter. 

I’m growing a beard. 

Yup! You read right. 

Once or twice a year I get to thinking I’m just not ugly enough. Wearing a permanent scowl is no longer enough to keep people from interacting with me. 

I figure a beard — combined with the cheap clothes I buy at Costco — might give people pause if they’re thinking of approaching me. It that doesn’t work, I’ll have to stop showering. Or, at least, drop from one shower a week to one shower every two weeks. 

And now, the photo:

The white background of the original photo made it mostly unsuitable for any framed arrangement. 

But, a bit of Topaz magic and, voilà!

That particular flower is from a plant outside a business. I liked the contrast of the flower (orange) with the white of the wall.

If one pays attention to one’s surroundings, one can find lots of stuff of interest.

And even when one fails to find something of interest, a bit of imagination can help create something.

For instance . . . Shooting Neon Colors Into the Inky Night.

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.
