I love my daily tasks of (1) taking photos for this blog and (2) creating a new post here on WordPress.
Yesterday morning, I captured this image in Edinburgh, Scotland …
… and took this picture shortly before I went to sleep at night:
Between those two tasks, I
- had breakfast with my son Aaron and Vicki, a wonderful Scottish woman who has the daily task of living with the same kind of unusual heart I have (and who appeared in my blog a year ago),
- was relieved, thanks to Vicki, of any tasking worries about (a) my son starting University in Edinburgh next month and (b) my having open heart surgery soon after that,
- swapped horror stories with Vicki about doctors and other medical people we’ve both encountered who have failed miserably in their basic tasks of providing expertise and empathy,
- met with somebody at the University of Edinburgh about all the tasks we need to accomplish when we return home to the USA in order for Aaron to get his student visa in time to start his freshman student tasks on September 11, and
- enjoyed the continuation of our current task of attending the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
You now have the task of looking at my other photos from yesterday.
Was there anything you especially enjoyed about that task? Anything you found particularly tasking (or taxing)? If you have questions or comments about any of those photos, I will fulfill my daily task of answering them before I blog again tomorrow morning.
Before you get on with your own daily tasks, I shall now give you an additional task: My son Aaron and I were discussing the insignia of University of Edinburgh, seen here in close-up:
Your task is to identify the top part of that insignia, above the book. Is it:
- A disco ball?
- A golf ball?
- A flower?
- All of the above?
- None of the above?
Thanks to all who helped me fulfill the task of creating this post and to you — of course! — for completing your task of reading it.
