Randutiae That Reflect the Scattered State of My Brains

I’ve been a very poor blogger lately. I have a list as long as my arm of things I’ve been wanting to blog about, but the spirit has not been moving me. In particular, I’ve been going through a period of grievously fractured focus with my writing, and have been wanting to blog something about that. I actually sat down yesterday, expecting to write a blog post about it – even contacted a few friends to ask permission to share some of the wise things they’ve been saying – but then, to my delight, my focus came back, and instead, I worked. I’m hoping the same thing is about to happen as I sit down this very moment. So, instead of one of those blog posts I’ve been meaning to write, I offer a few random pictures and one wise quote from a friend, presented with no context whatsoever :o). Maybe they will mean something to you.

 On my writing desk.

Cambridge, MA window box.
 City Hall in Cambridge flies the American flag, the POW/MIA flag, and the rainbow flag.
I ♥ my city.

 And here’s the view from far, far away. Screencap on my phone.
Blue dot means “you are here.”

The satellite images in the maps app may be the most beautiful
 things a phone can do.

A wise friend said these words this week and I was like, “Wait, I need to write that down.”
I did so, then stuck the post-it onto my computer.
