Cleaning Up

Drive through car wash.
Drive through car wash.

I don’t know why. We wash the cars before we leave for a trip. Even if we aren’t using them to travel.

I suppose it has something to do with having one errand complete before we return home. I wasn’t going to share these this week.


See that little “Discover” badge towards the bottom of Storyteller? That went live yesterday. Not the badge. The process. It is something WordPress does to share work they like with their massive, wider audience. The page is posted to all sorts of social media. In my case,  it was to something I posted earlier in the month called “Street Music.”

Yesterday, I received about 600 emails. About 40 or so new followers. All sorts of likes and retweets. That’s wonderful and very humbling. If you remember, I said that I was well behind in my email replies to all of you. That I was catching up. I promised you.

Yeah. Well.

If I start with 600 emails, set aside some time to answer some and maybe reply to 50, you’d think I’d be down to 550. You’d be wrong. Instead, I was up to 620 or something like that. I wish my bank account worked that way.


One of my new followers has a tagline on her page that said something like, “If there is light, you can take a picture.” Sheesh. These days with some cameras using extremely high ISOs, even if there isn’t light, you can take a picture.

Her words got me thinking about this little set of pictures. It’s not just about light. It’s about carrying a camera and seeing wherever and wherever you go. That’s been my mantra for a long time. Those of you who have been reading Storyteller for any length of time know this. To all of my new friends, welcome aboard.

You can take pictures anywhere.

Even in a car wash.

      1. Google translator! What a simple idea… but not for me. I don’t use it, because I want to exercise my mind and force it to think in english 🙂 actually… You are my cause of thinking to write my posts in both of languages 🙂 But my mind have to exercise more to do this 😉


  2. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my blog and give it a like between all those emails.
    I’m new here and it’s great to read this story, it’s only day 1 I guess I got a lot to look forward too.
