Promises, Promises

If only I really believed in horoscopes:

Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb.19)

Your workload is likely to increase during the early part of the new week but there is no need for concern. You will be able to deal with it and you will still have time leftover to do the things that make you happy. ~ Sally Brompton, The New York Post, 6/14/2015

Here's the thing:

My workload will increase during the latter part of the week as Opening Night and Gala and the Festival kicks off. As of Friday, I already have started the 9am to 11:30pm+ cycles, which lead me to staying up until 3am and then being a zombie on my one day off, with naps, and cleaning, and laundry, and nap no. 2.

Unless napping in that "thing that makes me happy"? I'm a little concerned for next week - and then next 7.

Color me skeptic.

At least the grounds are pretty. Here's a peek.

Photo of the Day: Dining al Desco

 I call this: Dining Al Desco, a still life

I don't always have time for a lunch-hour, or even a lunch break. Some people get to dine al fresco.
I dine al desco, so I keep my supplies handy. 
When it's not "dining" time, they are the props for my desk calendar.

My desk is a mess.

Stop and smell the peonies

 The peonies are finally in bloom again. Why is their season so fleeting?


Forget the roses. Stop and smell the peonies.

Photo of the Day: Art Direction Questions


Spotted on the train: this ad. I have to wonder about the art director on this shoot trying to justify, "Yes. I want a barefoot guy in a nice suit to ride his bike through a flooded swamp. Make it happen people." How many times did they have to shoot this? How many times did the bike get stuck? How many times did the bike fall over? How cold and squishy was the mud?

I apparently have too much time to think on the train in the morning. At least on this day I didn't fall asleep and miss my stop. That was NOT a fun morning panic attack.
