Zen Monday #246

Your weekly Zen, Zenlate.

Did it again. Same as last week. Forgot to publish.

I should go back to a paper calendar.

You should write a book, called "Failure to Publish." And then publish it.

Then you wouldn't be out photographing homeless shoes. Well, you probably would still be doing that.

Wow. That kid was FAST!

Petrea Burchard said...

I'll publish the book you suggest, Cliff, as long as James doesn't mind if I use his comment on the jacket.

Desiree said...

I shall return.

Latino Heritage said...

A simpler solution might have been to put each shoe on the correct foot.

jmgrimes said...

Won't even ask for royalties. Notoriety at parties shall be sufficient.

Petrea Burchard said...

I should post late more often. You guys are snappy.

Mom? Where are my shoes? . . . as we get out of the car 5 hours from home. . .

Ms M said...

Those darn aliens! Sucked him right out of his shoes!

Clifford Beshers said...

Not taken by aliens. Note that the right shoe is on the left. Some lucky soul achieved the lost sixth position of ballet and ascended immediately.

I still have a soft spot for my paper calendar. I hope it was a happier-than-not situation that left these shoes behind.

I love the shot, Petrea! A Pasadena Street.

No shoes allowed in the car?

Petrea Burchard said...

Lulu, I'm using paper AND online. Yikes.

Petrea Burchard said...

Lauren, it's El Molino at Claremont, facing north toward Washington Park.

Good ones, eh, Chieftess?

You may have put your finger on it, Hamilton.

If the shoe fits, wear it (with socks).

Margaret said...

Shoeless Joe.

Petrea Burchard said...

Or maybe with sock, Karin, it's hard to say.

M: Shoeless Joe (two blocks north of) Jackson.

"I can do a mile in under 3 minutes. Wanna see me do it again? ".

Trish said...

ok, that was supposed to have a subscript comment "Especially with shoes on the wrong feet".

Trish said...

This also reminds me of my nephew (~4yrs old) after his grand-Poppa died. He watched the coroner take Poppa John away. He thought about it a minute as the adults all stood there crying. He looked at us and asked "Poppa is gone forever?". We said "Yes Connor, Poppa is never coming back". He said "Oh, OK." Then took off running around like a dragonfly and said "Look, I can go sooooo fast!" as he zipped around the neighborhood. Connor is now 12 and these shoes look like they'd fit him perfectly now.

In case of rapture, these shoes will be unoccupied.

I think your posting late is a good sign: you're so engrossed in other projects you forget to look at the calendar or clock. Maybe you even forget where you left your tennies.

Petrea Burchard said...

You guys are all wonderful and I won't quit blogging because I can't let you go.
