Ordinary Matters (Day 16)

Welcome to 30 days of Photographs II.  Only 14 more days left. That’s like 98 in dog days. Except that dogs are too smart to join photo challenges. Unlike us. Click to see the list of themes.

And here are all the other people not as smart as dogs participating in this challenge: Ziva, MikeWJ, Mo, Meleah, nonamedufus, Unfinished Person, Mariann, Malisa, Nora, LaughingMom, Tanya, Elizabeth A, Kristen , Cheryl, Katherine, and 00Dozo.


Nicky – In the grand scheme of things, I think I’m a pretty average person. Average height, average weight – so they say, though I’m not completely convinced – average job, average life.

I don’t have any special talents to speak of. I can’t sing well, or dance well or even juggle. I have no artistic talent and I am certainly no Ansel Adams, as I think I’ve proven over the last 16 days. And as much as I enjoy writing, there will never be a Pulitzer prize on my mantle.  I’m really just an everyday person living an everyday life. Ordinary.

And that’s okay. Because I don’t have to do great things to make an impact. Because, you see, ordinary matters.

Mike – I considered today’s theme and thought long and hard about how to depict Ordinary Matters. And then I looked it up. On the internet. And I lost an hour reliving passages from my philosophy and theology classes. Not lost really. Well, yeah. I lost that hour but I regained some insight. Ordinary Matters even ties into Yoga which teaches mindfulness about the little things, the day to day, i.e., Ordinary Matters.

Then I saw these two freaks in a storefront window and thought, yeah, they’re probably talking about Ordinary Matters as it applies to them. As cast iron cats. Sitting on a bench. With their pseudo-phallic tails. Probably.

That’s all I got.
