CJ has just said to himself "That is not what I set out to do this morning.". I have come to the conclusion that that shall be on my headstone. Or would be if I were to have a headstone. Being of the view that I would prefer my ashes to be scattered a headstone is unlikely. In any event I'd rather it wasn't something that had to be considered before I've had the opportunity to reduce my Association Croquet handicap a bit further. Anyway to get back to CJ's statement. Most mornings I get up pretty early with every intentions of 'getting things done'. I usually have a list because I'm a pretty organised person. At least that is how I see myself. Does it ever work out that way? No. Why not?
The answer is probably ARADD (Age Related Attention Deficit Disorder) or, as shown in this YouTube video Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. Leastways that's my excuse. Of course if you read the serious stuff then you will see that ADHD is a problem with inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity, or some combination of these and if you keep on reading the serious stuff then you will get very depressed - I can guarantee that. Fortunately I couldn't concentrate hard enough to get to the end so remained happy and unaware.
You see even this post is a good example of ARADD. When I started out it was to be a post about Virginia in Barbados but CJ did have to go and say "That is not what I set out to do this morning."
Thinking about it further "That is not what I set out to do this morning." would be rather apt for a headstone. After all not many of us who wake up with a list of intentions in the morning usually have death on our list. Not even Batty *.
And by way of adding a bit of colour to this post here is a picture of a little arachnid in my pond. It's a Water Mite and is about 2.5mm long in real life ie tiny!
* For those who don't know the film Bladerunner: Batty: "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die."
