Rollators Rock

Visiting Dad made me want a Rollator (a four-wheel rolling walker with seat). I ordered a lightweight red one, took it out yesterday for a trial run and had a wonderful time. Three times around the mall's interior left me with runner's "burn." "Feel the burn," they say and boy did I ever feel it. Next, off to the bookstore. "Red" made it through the aisles flawlessly. Browsing was a breeze because I could sit while flipping through pages. No more hunting for a shelf, or table, to lean more searching for a seat miles away. So, despite the stigma of walkers and old folks, Red and I are becoming best friends. I have a brand new toy that makes my life a breeze. Perhaps today Red and I will skip around the mall. Ain't freedom grand?

SUGGESTION: What a great way to transport cameras and lenses! No need to carry--roll instead. Load them in the basket, or pouch, and go! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!

DOWN WITH STIGMAS. DOWN WITH WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK. Perhaps Bob will take a pic of me flying through store aisles; one knee on seat, other leg stretched out, pointed toes, in a ballet pose.

REMEMBER: Attitude is everything!

How do you awaken your creativity? Reading always jump starts my brain. Whenever I find myself lacking creative energy, a bookstore will get me going. Almost any subject will do. Reading Eastern philosophies takes me outside my Western thinking. It puts me outside the box. Yesterday I read one plus one = one plus one instead of 1 + 1 = 2. Something to think about. True creativity involves seeing and thinking differently.

TODAY: Work on box setup.
