Day 1897: Attention

Do I have your attention?

During the first year of this blog, I published two posts about attention (here and here).  If you give those early posts attention, you might notice how my blog has changed.  These days, I give more attention to photos, like this.


I also give attention to


  • books,
  • interesting architecture,
  • food,



  • singing,


  • people,
  • work,
  • not being late (which I dreamed about last night, and
  • music.


Personally, I have trouble paying attention the day after a time change.  How is your attention, these days?

Thanks to all who helped me give the necessary attention to today’s blog and — of course!  — to YOU, for your attention.

  1. That bento box really caught my attention Ann. I do enjoy your photos and Michae’s tasty presentations!

  2. This day the switch to DST always is a challenge for me, Ann. So far, so good.

  3. How could I not pay attention to your posts?

    I give attention to my family and friends, to heritage sites and museums, to beauty around me, to books, to photography and definitely to your posts! 🙂 All the best!

  5. I’m sorry. I’m not paying attention because Katie wants all of my attention right now.

  6. Hi Ann,

    I read that they will cancel that time change, because it has been proven that have many harmful effects !

  7. Among other things I think about Aldous Huxley’s novel Island and the mynah birds that have been trained to say, “Attention, attention”. I also know you enjoy the stories of Fritz Lieber so you know his story The Bazaar Of The Bizarre, which I think is a pretty clever title. That leads me to the OED and I’m surprised to find that “bazaar” and “bizarre” are completely unrelated even though every bazaar I’ve been to has had some rather bizarre things.
    Well, as you can see it’s very hard to keep my attention focused.

  8. You got my attention with Charlie Puth! Love him!

  9. You caught MY attention! Which is good, because I think I’ve got senior ADHD. I have problems concentrating for any period of time.

  10. “Attention Chat Bizarre”–that certainly stands out as unique and worthy of attention! I’m paying attention to my garden which is just starting to wake up. The time change gives me longer afternoons and I seem to begin dreaming about garden plans. I’m in the dreaming stage, not quite ready to jump in to the working stage. Hope you have a wonderful week, Ann.

  11. You have my attention Ann, but I am finding it hard to pay attention to anything else today…its that time change!!!

  12. Holding my attention isn’t easy it is usually all over the place

  13. I spend way too much time paying attention to being frustrated by the time change.
