Multitasking That Works

I have discovered that I can, in fact, upload a very rich image via my slow home dial-up connection. It just takes a very, very, very, very long time. There is an upside to this. While the image is uploading, I can pick up a book and read. My eyes enjoy looking away from the lighted screen and resting on a printed page, and I am quite content to pass the time this way, rather than annoyed, irritated and impatient.

Best Thing I've Overheard All Year So Far

Might as well post this little story on my most neglected blog. Here goes:

The young man was standing on the sidewalk on Waukazoo Street, not far from my bookshop door. He was talking on his cell phone. As people do when talking on their cell phones, he was speaking loudly enough that his voice carried across the street (I had crossed on my way to Tom's Market), and I could hear every word he was saying:

"Get this! You won't believe it! Lake Michigan is so big you can't see the other side!"

This made me so very happy, a big grin broke out on my face, and I was still smiling in the aisles of the grocery store.

What am I doing with this blog?

Why did I feel compelled to start it? Do I want to keep it going? One thing I don't want is to let it deteriorate into a series of tirades, political and/or otherwise. That's one reason it's been lying idle. Other reasons are attention to my other (more blogs important, at least to me), demands of business, vacation, and life in general.
