Focus and Breathe

Stuck in Austin traffic one evening a couple of weeks ago with 2/3 of my kids
I glanced out the window and spotted bright colorful graffiti painted on a train car one bridge over...



Camera! Camera! Camera! I squealed, twisting to reach into my purse behind my seat.

But responsible kids that they are, they reminded me I was driving and didn't need to be snapping photos
so Daniel took these for me.
Mostly to get me to be quiet, I bet.

I couldn't read the words until I popped the images on my computer.
Here... I've zoomed in so you can read them, too.




Just the reminder I needed. 
I love when that happens!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and don't forget to Focus and Breathe!

  5. That is a terrific messege Barbara - especially when you are stuck in traffic. I love your bird photos below, especially the budgie. I had a couple growing up too. Harry and George. :)
    Your squirrel is adorable having a little slurp of water. Cute!
    Happy Saturday!

  8. What a fun moment this is!I know what you mean when you see something special and your camera is not handy. That is one good thing about cell phones.

    have a great weekend, Barbara!

    1. I agree! These were actually with my 'big' camera, though - I usually have it with me!

  10. What great kids you have, and ahhhhh, what great advice to trip across on a plain and everyday journey (smile).

    Best tip I ever had from the nurse at my blood clinic was to breathe. I have my bloods drawn regularly, and it often takes several attempts to fill the vials. I didn't realize I held my breath, until she pointed it out. I have no problem filling the vials now, such a simple thing, yet it's made the world of difference!
