I bet there's a psychological name for this kind of madness!

I started piano lessons at 14 and fell in love. But it was unrequited love...
Everything I've ever done has been "okay." It's the old "Jack of all
trades and master of none" syndrome. I only did one performance in High
School and froze onstage. It was pure agony, especially when you're 16!
Although I've never been afraid of public speaking or singing, the piano
was my undoing! I only played for my own "enjoyment" after that for fear of
further humiliation. When we moved, my stepdaughter bought my
piano and there are times I'd love to bang out my frustrations on those
black and white ivories!

I know it's hard for anyone under 40 to remember the days when the doctor would come in the examining room reeking of cigarette smoke! My doc always had a pack in his doc frock.
I'm an ex-smoker but I'm not rabid about it. It's just that we have so much more info now...
I would imagine today's docs only smoke pot. (Just kidding....?)

Mo chose the word "Doodle" for today. I haven't learned to doodle digitally so I'm opting to introduce you to a rooster from Kaua'i. You find these guys running amok all over the island and they're really quite attractive! So my input for Monday is:
Check out "Manic Monday" - I'm sure you all can come up with
something a lot more original!
Okay, my stupid cat looks like a fox and I spelled Buddha wrong.
Whaddya want? It's almost midnight and I'm sleepy...

This is the view from our backyard - or it was, until a huge 10-12' concrete block fence went up. I can no longer see the foothills...thank goodness for all of the birds that visit our yard. It helps make up for losing our view.
