I had my "what-if I unplug" time last week visiting my sister, and it was so refreshing, I wish I could do it more often. Enjoy your unplugged day, Gail!

I love this post! I can’t possibly imagine why… 😉

But no arms? Ouch!

Interesting though, how our minds work, is a great place of inquiry and curiosity for me… 🧐🤔🧐

Urania’s armlessness gave rise to me remembering the following quote by Kurt Vonnegut who said, “When I write, ✍🏼 I feel like an armless, legless man with a crayon 🖍 in his mouth.” 👄

Squirrel? 🐿

The dog in the movie Up is a keeper!

Just to show even dogs are all kinds of kinds… Henrietta sits as still as a statue and stares at rabbits. Usually, she pays little to no attention to the squirrels. 🤷‍♀️

I saw Nia as standing with her arms behind her back and her head cocked. Looked totally natural. (Just sayin'.)

If I accumulated all my selection criteria for determining “necessity,” “importance,” and “urgency” their pages could rival The Encyclopedia Brittanica of my grade school years! Some are products of our circumstances while others seep out from our self perceptions and inner workings. (Picture elaborate geared clock works)

Polish the brass gears lightly, but don’t tamper with the spring!

Hold on loosely indeed!

If you cling too tightly, you’re gonna lose control.

Krishnamurti would refer to all of it as our “conditioning”?

Ha! I almost linked the song by 38 Special and then held back. I’m delighted that you completed the lyric.
