From the top Branches (SOTC 131/365)

For those of you who think I'm dangling precariously in the top branches of this tree, you're wrong. I love climbing trees, but my position is 10ft away on the lawn.

Gorilla pod + remote shooting app = awesome.

and the air is wild with leaves.
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves."

Everything Old is [Kinda] New Again

I am recognizing more and more that trends from my own generation or slightly before are coming back around full circle for the younger generation--I also recognize that this fact means I am getting old experienced nostalgic ...cultured?

I had another one of those mixed moments of timey-wimey nostalgia today. I saw this ad on TV, and was raising half an eyebrow at the techno-zombie piece of it, until right at the very end, where I was thrown straight back to the late 80's, and a toy I had of my own.

What I saw today:

Are you a child of the 80's? Did you get thrown back to the same place as I?


...I thought the throwbacks were for Thursdays...

Bragging on my Workplace

I have often mentioned my work--my job, my passion--here on this blog. We have made the news a few times in recent years, usually in conjunction with a fundraiser event. This morning, CTV beautifully portrayed who GRIT is, and what we are all about. I'd love to share it with you.
