W^2 or W squared for Wordless Wednesday, July 19, 2023
It is Wednesday, again. I am in Denver, Colorado for another baseball game. Last night’s game didn’t turn out well for my team, but they play 162 games in a season for a reason.
I arrived yesterday morning and had a full day planned, capped with walking to and from the ballpark.
My plan was to visit the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, lunch with a blogger, then the game. Sometimes things don’t go your way or lot of other people have the same idea. It turned out that I was not the only person who wanted to get a jump start on their day and when I arrived at the car rental facility I was well back in the line. The line moved smoothly and did get my car, but I was more than an hour behind schedule.
I didn’t let the delay deter me, but I did cut my visit to the museum short because I had a lunch date with Susie from Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride: Adventures and Misadventures in Boulder, Colorado. I started following her a decade ago and I’ve been following her since. We met at a Boulder restaurant and shared our ups and downs of blogging and life. I arrived early and when she walked in, I recognized her immediately. It was a good lunch, and we had a lot to talk about – blogging, family, and life. We all have similar things going on our lives trying to balance our writing life with the other parts of our lives. When we parted she recommended that I stop at Chautauqua Park to get a view of the Flatirons – massive sandstone rocks – uplifted millions years ago.
I am in awe of the mountains AND Susie. I learned a lot about blogging and writing following her, but like many bloggers who began blogging more than a decade ago, we’ve lost steam and blog less than we did.
I have a baseball game, it’s a day game, before a late flight home. I am going to take a bite out of the day and make the day count. Denver and Coors Field are the 24th cities and 26th ballparks where I have seen professional baseball played. Six more cities remain on my baseball bucket list travels.
Today is going to be an amazing day, it just might be a million and six times better than yesterday. So, I’d better jump up, jump in, and seize the day and take a big bite out of the day. Making the days Count, one day at a time, starting with a lot of small bites to make a big dent.
Do you have BIG plans for your day?
