It's never my intention, but...





...I always seem to have a plan, and then wind up getting distracted.  EASILY distracted.  The intent was to check out some shore towns and real estate.  Yet here I was, keeping company with a wood fence, rusty wire and a lone flower on the side of the road in Avalon.  And who says I'm high maintenance?!?

Today?  Yep, my intent is to get on my bike and reacquaint myself with how the gears actually work.  It wasn't my plan, but I got stuck in neutral as I realized I couldn't remember the word "roller coaster".  Seriously?  All that came to my mind was "Ferris wheel".  TOTAL brain cramp that consumed me for awhile.    And WHY was a roller coaster even on my mind in the first place?  I'm sure there is a message for me there somewhere. 

My days often resemble a circuitous path that lead me in multiple directions.  That's NEVER the intent.  But I'll just call it an adventure.  Time to shift gears AGAIN.

  7. Reminds me of the saying "life is what happens when you are not looking." Don't know who said it but I like it.
    Have a great afternoon.

  8. Heheh - I think our brains work in similar ways :) Distraction is a BIG problem for me too, at times. Love your image and take on today's word - I'm glad your attention was hooked on the fence, wire and flower rather than searching for property, but hope you were still able to accomplish your other tasks that day, too :)

  13. Hey, when you get to be my age, it gets worse! LOL LOVE your photo! Maybe you were just to spend some downtime with this flower and the post and barbed wire.
    Great shot, love it!

  14. Ha! From someone who HAS ADD, that sounds way too familiar...but, even more so lately. Wonder if it's my mind using some kinda escapism defence mechanism, as a direct result of my kids getting older...('cause it can't be that I'M getting older...right!? ;D)

  17. I am definitely one to get distracted. I really am amazed that I get anything done. One of my favorite quote is.

    "I was going to do something to save the world.. But then something sparkly caught my eye.."

    Once again I just love your photo here..
