  1. A good friend of mine always jokes that he keeps his expectations low, and everything is always a pleasant surprise. He has fun everywhere, so it must work! Gorgeous photo, Cathy.

      This is so close to one of the only concepts I remember from sociology 101 (way back when). Big expectation, big disappointment, little expectation, little disappointment. I do like the 2012 version which your good friend jokes about, and it seems to be representative of how far we have come in general as a society with raising our consciousness/awareness.

  3. That really is true. Very very true. The minute you change your perceptions and expectations, everything changes.

      Thanks, V. Um, the election’s over. Any chance of a new Lame Adventure anytime soon?

      • It is? Where was I? We voted already? Who won? No one tells me anything here on Manhattan Island and I forget what channel plays my main source of news, SNL. You know, Cathy, I was backing what’s his name, the guy in the button down shirt that was campaigning so hard … Semi-seriously, what I’ve been is my biggest Lame Adventure of the year, but it’s ongoing … I suppose I can crank out something in the interim to prove I’m not a phony politician type.

        Dearest V,
        My main source of news is the Daily Show, so maybe I have trumped you there?
        Sorry, the guy with the button down shirt didn’t win. And no, my sense is, you’re not the phony politician type. Maybe Sandy scrambled the airwaves in Manhattan. But I’m a big fan of Lame Adventures. While we have some cultcha in Colorado, I do enjoy learning about what’s going on in NYC.

        BTW, we do have an amazing art show at the Denver Art Museum. “Becoming Van Gogh.” Truly the best curated show I’ve ever seen about the ten years that Van Gogh painted. And it’s only being presented in Denver…If you Google it, the website just doesn’t do it justice.

        Anyway, whatever your political leanings, I still like you.
        Cathy
