This morning I saw a flamingo on a bicycle. Really, I did.
It sucks the joy out of it a bit to tell you it was one of those lawn flamingos in the front basket of someone riding by on a bicycle. Still, my first thought was “there goes a flamingo on a bicycle” which immediately made my Delight of the Day list. As usual, it’s all about the attitude
As usual, during reinvention month, I am asking myself “what’s working? What’s not working?
As usual, I am looking up the definition of whimsy. Google says:
- playfully quaint or fanciful behavior or humor.
“the film is an awkward blend of whimsy and moralizing”
- a whim.
plural noun: whimsies; plural noun: whimseys
- a thing that is fanciful or odd.
“the stone carvings and whimsies”
Considering the flamingo on the bicycle as a muezzin call, I am wondering if it might be mostly about attitude.
I want to research assistive technology to make my computer life easier (and I’ve already solved The Problem of the Folded Ear) but, over the next week, I will be inviting whimsy.
