Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Some professions, by its high academic standards and training of their students, occasionally makes dealing with these professionals a bit foreign in feeling...or maybe, out-of-place from normal daily life. Take for example, the language lawyers use because of their specialty training. It speaks very much like one from a foreign country.

File under Foreign files…

It is like going to Greece and you do not speak Greek! You encounter foreign language law books…

time and advise from lawyers

“A lawyer’s time and advise is his stock in trade.”

Thank goodness, Jerry Seinfeld playfully describes what we all need to know before some of us travel over to foreign lawyer country:

“What are lawyers really? To me, a lawyer is basically the person that know the rules of the country. We’re all throwing the dice, playing the game, moving our pieces around the board, but if there’s a problem, the lawyer is the only person that has actually read the inside of the top of the box.”

plaintiff vs defendant

When visiting the legal world, one usually hires a lawyer to help navigate successfully in this foreign land…

Well, it is all Greek…I mean, foreign to me.

This Weekly Photo Challenge is Foreign. According to the definition given, “Foreign… (rightly so) often brings up images of things outside of your own nation, it can also apply to things outside of or different from your normal environment, or even something which is out of place in general.”

 Is there a profession that screams FOREIGN to you?

A Clueless Moment…

I am totally clueless about plants and things…can someone tell me…are these cabbages or kale or neither. Edible or ornamental?


My apologies to all who left a comment on my recent posts…I am slowly working my way to you while battling Internet glitches.

In the meantime I wanted to share these lovely autumn plants growing in a little dirt patch in town.

Oh, I’m experimenting with the quick new post feature from an iPhone since my laptop is quite sick now. If this turns out weird-looking, well, another big sorry from me.

Enjoy, my friends! 🙂

So Much Passion and Random-ness Going On Here!

chillin', peeps, postaday, tshirt art, photograph

Hey all you charming, sun lovin’ peeps! Not much is happening around here, (except a lot of passion and random-ness) and you know I am feeling those lazy August summer days.

Well, seems like the perfect time to plop down in an air-conditioned room and dream up on words like, say, passion.

Seems like such a strong word and at the same time a very good word to ponder:

passion…dictionary version >a strong liking or desire or devotion to some activity<… well, you know my current passion, as I suspect is the same with you if you living a blogosphere type of existence, is none other than, …writing and blogging! Oh, yeah!

Here are a few really random thoughts:

Everyday we should wish for something to happen in the Universe: creative and fun-loving August days for every artist and an endless supply of pistachio ice cream!

With such a short post, you wonder how I can say I have loads of passion for writing and blogging. I wonder myself, hehe,  so now we are even.

I am off now to scale my couch for some serious couch napping workouts.

Do carry on, my sun lovin’ and, oh, so charming peeps!

Now, how about it, what is your current passion and that one wish you are dying to throw out into the Universe?

You’re Terrific… E.B. White: Memorable Quotes to Honor Your Birthday

To the terrific, E.B. White, the American essayist…Columnist…Editor and Poet–

THANK YOU for teaching us on many things but especially about friendships, writing and random thoughts.

On friendships and Charlotte’s Web:

“Trust me, Wilbur. People are very gullible. They’ll believe anything they see in print.”


“Wilbur never forgot Charlotte. Although he loved her children and grandchildren dearly, none of the new spiders ever quite took her place in his heart. She was in a class by herself. It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both.”

E.B. White, Charlotte's Web, friendship, writer, nature, writing, historical birthday


“You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what’s a life, anyway? We’re born, we live a little while, we die. A spider’s life can’t help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone’s life can stand a little of that.”


On writing and random things:

 “Be obscure clearly! Be wild of tongue in a way we can understand.”


“I admire anybody who has the guts to write anything at all.”


“You’re terrific as far as I am concerned.”


“Advice to young writers wo want to get ahead without any annoying delays: don’t write about Man, write about a man.”


“I have yet to see a piece of writing, political or non-political, that does not have a slant. All writing slants the way a writer leans, and no man is born perpendicular.”


“Semi-colons only prove that the author has been to college.”


“Writing is an act of faith, not a trick of grammar.”


“A writer’s style reveals something of his spirit, his habits, his capacites, his bias…it is the Self escaping into the open.”


“Writing is both mask and unveiling.”


“A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word to paper.” (my personal favorite when suffering from a writer’s block…)


On spelling and Stuart Little:

“Well,” said Stuart, “a misspelled word is an abomination in the sight of everyone.”


E.B. White–7/11/1899 to 1/10/1985

Rest in peace


What are your thoughts on the legend, E.B. White?
