Charting a Path through my day

yellow tufted hibiscus

Good Evening, God!

Almost at the end of my day, God. But, I still have some things I want to do . . . well, just two. I’m letting one BIG one go until tomorrow. I LIKE getting things done. And I like planning WHAT I want to get done. But, I’ve noticed that my wanting is bigger than my doing. And that leads to dissatisfaction.

Ah, so I’m so SLOW SMART, God! Tomorrow I will plan on doing less . . . and getting it all done. That way the satisfaction will build motivation.

Meanwhile, I wanted to share this yellow tufted hibiscus. Ah! In doing a google search I realized that it is probably called a Plumed Hibiscus. So interesting, God, how many specific names there are for odd things — like a pride of lions or an exultation of larks.

It turns out that An Exaltation of Larks is the name of a book in which the author has researched the old (1500s) books of venery and given us: a “shrivel of critics,” an “unction of undertakers,” a “blur of Impressionists,” a “score of bachelors,” and a “pocket of quarterbacks.”

All of which goes to show how fun it is just to drift curiously through information!
