Zen Monday: #92

In a few weeks we'll celebrate 100 Zen Mondays. What do you think? Shall we have a contest of some sort? A prize? I welcome your suggestions as well as your comments about today's Zen Monday photo.

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about. There's no right or wrong. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean.

I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. Unless I absolutely must say something I stay out of the comments box to avoid influencing the discussion (because when I get in there everything goes down hill).

"I'm not answering the phone. You answer it."

"I answered it last time. You answer it."

"Sheila hasn't answered it at all today. She should answer it."

"I have so answered it today. You answer it."

Ok, enough of that. I just irritated myself. Nearly 100 Zen Mondays, Petrea? Wowee!! It seems some kind of celebration would be in order. First prize, a Boz t-shirt?

How very Tookeresque. See this, this … & this.

OK, maybe not that last one. Hotlinking's still resented in some quarters.

I went straight to the contest in my mind...yep...a Boz t-shirt!!!!

Clifford get's the prize for today's Zen Monday!!!

Daisy told me if she wins the contest...she'll skip the t-shirt and opt for an afternoon on the porch with Boz!!!

A demonstration of Pauli's exclusion principle.

(As I learnt it eons ago, no electron will join another electron in the same orbit around an atom while there are still unoccupied bands to fill. It works with passengers on buses as well.)

Zen Monday purgatory.

Waiting to hear "I Hate Mondays" on the radio so they can be the tenth caller to win the big prize.

Nearly 100 and I've not stepped up to the plate but about twice. I can't be clever on demand.

No prizes, that's so NOT ZEN

The exercise is the reward for the experience, and seeing how others respond in their own way. You're right on with the approach, so I would leave it be.

Meantime, I think it's an excellent commentary on mirrors into infinity, reflecting the self in search of image. There's even a place to manufacture this, called a "salon".

Contrast that to the old barber shops that used to be hangouts and the nail parlors that are the traditional social networking vehicle in communities.

Here's what's so Zen about Zen Monday for me: I never know what the photo's about until you all tell me. Or rather, I have an idea because I know what was happening when I took it but you don't, so you always come up with something better.

Yeah. Tooker. Sure, that's exactly what I was thinking when I took the shot. Yeah, that's it.

Thank you all for joining in. Welcome to two completely new commenters today: Hello to opi (wow, great art on your blog!) and Hello to 91024, thank you so much for linking!
