Theme Day: (In)Action


The theme for December is "action." I looked everywhere, 
found it all around. I then took another look and 
was amazed at how much time we spend waiting for action - 
as here when we sat inside this box on wheels, 
waiting as it rolls us to our destinations. 
The cars are waiting for their turn through the detour, 
the bus is waiting to enter the lane
designated by the arrow, and the passengers are 
waiting to get off at their stops.


I guess one could almost say that 
"for every action, there is an equal inaction."
To see how other people all over 
the world have interpreted today's theme,

Brilliant, Speedway. I'm going to make a little sign for the office.

'Lo, Dive. Leave it to a dingbat arty type to post an "action" photo and start ruminating in a light fog of Isaac Newton associations. I should've finished my little theorem with something on the order of "The trick is in knowing which is needed, and when."

Thank you. The window-pane plaid exterior of that building does, from time to time, provide some unusual changes.

Hello, Chrissy and JBar. Thank you for visiting and for your kind words.
