Merely an Observer

It seems that lately I am merely an observer in the world around me. I have nothing to do but sit back and watch, at least for right now. 

The neighbors are minding, or rather appear to be minding their own business but I know there is a small group acting as neighborhood watch. At least that's what they say they are doing, they are actually using keeping everyone safe as an excuse to ask fifty million questions. 

They mean well but I stay inside more and more now that everyone is out and about during the day. I wash my clothes in the evenings and at night. School starts back on Thursday and I will doing it in the mornings then. It will be easier to do the laundry every other morning than to keep up with it by trying to use the dryer.

I have to make additional trips if I use the dryer but by using just the washer and hanging the clothes I save a trip and use the same amount of time to hang the clothes that I would putting them in the dryer. I see others using the washer and dryer while they wonder about having change for the other loads. It's disturbing and reminds me of something in Moments, Money & Memories

I am working on another book and thinking about pulling the other WIPs I have out of the closet and getting back to work on them. It'll be interesting to see how things have changed during the last year and find out where I am with the ideas. Actually it'll be interesting to see if the views that were originally in the books have changed at all.

Do you observe? Have you seen those around you use security as an excuse to be busy bodies? Do you think that your views change with time or are they set in stone?

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
