I Saw Sunday

Here’s a new meme: I Saw Sunday

So, what did you see this week?

One thing or a whole list! – Words or photos or both!

Share it here with us.

The Rules

1. Write your post on your blog and include a link back to I Saw Sunday.
2. Leave the link to your post in the Mr Linky widget so we can find you.
3. Leave a comment after linking so that I know you have been here.
4. Please be sure to visit the other participants and share what they saw.

Yesterday I discovered the BBC series Sherlock, an updated take on Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic detective series. Here’s the way one modernizes a classic.

I’m also relishing Anthony Powell‘s A Dance to the Music of Time. I wish I could write like this. I wish I had more time this year to write. I’ve got some time now but only for the next couple of weeks.

I’ve seen plenty of gray skies and leafless trees.

I’ve also seen some old friends and had great talks with them. I love friends who like to play with words, question the conventional and laugh at the absurdities that surround us.

I’ve seen a temporary manager take a department that was hobbling along and run it into the ditch. It’s surprising how someone who’s just supposed to mind the shop for a few weeks can think “Now’s my chance to grab power.” No, the chance to grab power, was before you retired. You had 30 some years in the work force. Now let the younger bad managers derail the program.

“Slow down and take the time to really see. Take a moment to see what is going on around you right now, right where you are. You may be missing something wonderful.”

    Grey skies and leafless trees seem to become the metaphor for an incompetent temporary manager! Beautifully expressed ideas!

    I leave a response when I appreciate a article
    on a site or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.

    Usually it is triggered by the passion displayed in the
    post I read. And after this article I Saw Sunday | Ruined for Life:
    Phoenix Edition. I was actually excited enough to drop
    a thought ;-) I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be only me or do a few of these responses look like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I’d
    like to follow you. Could you make a list all of your
    social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin
    profile?

      My Twitter feed is SMKelly53. I’m not active on Facebook.

      As I mentioned there’s been some spam that I’m trying to detect and cull from the site.
