Sunday. Rain clouds this morning, but the head is good, the attitude is good and the progress noted last night with the area around the computer, the re-arrangement of the “stuff” piled up around my computer has, well, made more progress. I'm upbeat (deedle-dee-deet) and I'm going to go with it.
I mentioned I'd gone with a new hosting service. My old service had little or nothing in the way of hit statistics and tools and I wasn't thinking particularly of hit counters and such in moving. So last night in checking out their control panel I looked at the “visual” hit statistics they had available. My, my. I pay a small fee to use a counter provided by extreme-tracking (they have a free tracker many people are familiar with) but you have to add their code to each specific page you want to track so I track hits on my journal menu page and home page, but not much else. The new hosting company tracks every page and I was able to track back from multiple hits to sites I've never heard of before who've copped one of my pictures or referenced a particular journal entry. Boy-howdy, but there's a bunch of them. There's even a link to one of my photographs in a Wikipedia entry. A little ego boost can't hurt.
Yeah, but it's not a photograph of the building they were referencing.
Afternoon. The sun came out in the late morning and for some reason I felt a need to take a bus downtown to buy a tea pot at Peet's. Yes, I'd seen they had their tea pots on sale and yes I needed a tea pot, but why today? Hard to say. Bought a tea cup with a nice removable tea strainer - I'll try it later. They didn't have the pot I'd wanted in stock and the cup looked, well, interesting. - and started walking back along the sidewalk thinking I'd catch the bus in ten or fifteen minutes when it came by and then thought, as I was walking, well the day is good, my head is good and I'm feeling good so why not just keep on going until I arrive? So I did. This is a good sign. I'm into good signs.
Oh, a mistake on my part. I photographed the cars instead of the people standing there watching. My mistake.
