Zen Monday #263




Is this your first Zen Monday? It's the day you tell us what the photo's about, rather than me telling you.

My own boss makes decisions in pretty much the same manner as the sign.

Eric Baker said...

That little yellow sign is really empowering. I'm glad it exists. It is an island amidst desolate confusion.

Andy said...

This sign is for Republicans. Two lefts are better than one right.

Kalei's Best Friend said...

My bad, 2 wrongs 1 right? :-) lol

sonia a. mascaro said...

Controversial sign!

Petrea Burchard said...

I hadn't thought of it as political. This is one reason I like Zen Monday, because you guys always think of stuff that wouldn't have crossed my mind. Like Dive's boss, or even empowerment.

LONDONLULU said...

LOL @ Andy's comment! I'm feeling empowered also, to take any of 3 lanes...

Ms M said...

Did anyone else notice the satellite dish that looks like an alien creature walking down the roof? It must feel empowered....

Bellis said...

When you can't see the way ahead in your job, it's time to ring that number. But look out for the crazy satellite dish climbing down from the roof.....

Clifford Beshers said...

My boss told me not to call that number.

Pasadena Adjacent said...

I don't have anything clever here (especially after Clifford's slam dunk) but I like the photo. It's an example of what I refer to as a California dead zone

Petrea Burchard said...

That it is, PA. It's the Hollywood Way exit from the westbound 134 freeway.

Desiree said...

I think this corner of the world is in desperate need of beautification. Perhaps chandeliers hanging from the telephone poles? Christmas lights on the chain link?

altadenahiker said...

Yeah, it looks like a minimum security prison.

Petrea Burchard said...

It could use some nice plants.

Irina Rekhviashvili said...

I am my own boss and I like every moment of it, though sometimes it feels really difficult, as I want but can not turn off the permanent feature of decision making. If it were only three ways with clear directions..
I feel deeply sorry to be so unattentive and ungrateful to your kind attention and kind comments. All the best to you.

Petrea Burchard said...

Hi Irina, it's nice to hear from you whenever you have the time. There's no need to apologize. I hope you're well!

Margaret said...

I got nothing. Again. Sorry.

TheChieftess said...

Wait!!! Where's my pencil??? I NEED to write down that number!!!

Oh! Wait...do I really want me for my boss??? Wait...that would mean I would have a boss...which would mean I'd have to come out of retirement...

Nah...on second thought...skip the pencil!!!

Book Dragon said...

still nothing, I just came by to say hi :-)

Petrea Burchard said...

Chieftess, I hope you have a passenger because writing while driving is surely as bad as texting!

BD, come by any time.

TheChieftess said...

Dayam!!!...can't get away with anything anymore...

Trish said...

sounds like the directions in SoPas on Pasadena Ave as you approach the Gold Line crossing at Monterey. Used to be just fine, then someone decided the Gold Line has right of way and re-route all the cars around-a-bout, worse than any European round-a-bout. sheesh

Petrea Burchard said...

Yeah, I've been there. Sheesh.

Ann Erdman said...

The little shrubs and weeds in that sad-looking patch are inspired by the sign but don't have the means to perform any self-improvement. Perhaps climbing that chain link fence to freedom could be a first goal. Baby steps...

By the way, I linked to you on the big reveal on my blog today. Sometimes you make my job easier!

Petrea Burchard said...

Thanks, Ann! That makes me happy.

JM said...

Andy's comment put a smile on my face, especially because what caught my attention was the 'Be your own boss' sign... :-)
