Spring returns for a day

lakeview
To quote my cycling buddy Peter, “the lake never disappoints”. It offers different views every day, all year ’round. Light and colour are ever-changing, sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically. Today’s brief return to mild temperatures made for a perfect boardwalk opportunity. Rich, full sounds of waves against the beach accompanied the view. Perfect.

Take your time, and let others have theirs

I’ve just been enjoying novelist Amelia E. Barr’s 9 rules for success and one thought appealed particularly.

… genius is nothing more nor less than doing well what anyone can do badly.

Here’s the context:
“Everything good needs time. Don’t do work in a hurry. Go into details; it pays in every way. Time means power for your work. Mediocrity is always in a rush; but whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing with consideration. For genius is nothing more nor less than doing well what anyone can do badly.”

Bible review: tl;dr

The acronym tl;dr (Too long; Didn’t read) is familiar enough but it made me smile when I saw it applied to The Bible. A cheeky critic has made an editing attempt. For example:

GENESIS
God: All right, you two, don’t do the one thing. Other than that, have fun.
Adam & Eve: Okay.
Satan: You should do the thing.
Adam & Eve: Okay.
God: What happened!?
Adam & Eve: We did the thing.
God: Guys

How amazing?

A friend sent one of those email collections of curious images and this was one of them. I thought it was surprising, but then I also wondered, “Who makes a 9 like that?” When I looked a little more, I saw that the figures could easily be manipulated to change the number of angles, making for less amazing results.

So now the question is, “Who has time to waste, counting the angles in geometricized numerals, in the first place?” And who has time to undo their work? Same type that does this to another photo from the collection …
