Tuesday I went over to my friend Herb Cohen's house to help him with some printer problems he was having. After getting the printer problems sorted, Herb offered me lunch. We had a delicious meal made better by good company.
On the way home I decided to check out our park. I was told that the playground equipment was gone and I found out it was.
Day two started out very gray and iffy. It cleared up nicely and it was a good sales day.
At the end of the sale I was frantically trying to get my booth broken down and packed up since there was a concert on the green after the sale. In the end I was only able to get out of the way with the help of Celena (pictured here in the booth behind mine) and some of her friends. They grabbed the last load of stuff off the green and carried it to my van before the concert started. It would have been very awkward without their help.
Later that night I took a photo of Cate Blanchett off the television screen in the Hobbit. I love the mirth and joy in her eyes in this scene. There's also a little bit of the wild forest in there too. Amazing actress.
I stopped by Harris Teeter on Friday and found an oddly bent cart in the line-up. It had a graceful curve pushed into it and it fascinated me for about 60 seconds. Life pushes you past things like that, but I thought I would grab some photos to try to capture it. The curve just changed the everyday into something different and I wanted to absorb it.
Who remembers Cheez Waffles? I'm pleased to tell you they are just as good/bad as you remember them.
Later, we went to Taipei South for supper.
I think everyone is more influential than they think they are. I have had several people repeat back to me some offhand comment I said to them in the past that they took to heart. It's amazing to me that people actually take me seriously outside of my day job, and listen to what I say.
As you'd expect, the talk was energetic, passionate, and informative. Josh's personality is bigger than one person can normally contain. He is an endless font of energy and it energizes you when you're around him.
