WordPress randomness in real life situations

Early morning at the start line for The Color Run. Columbus, Ohio. July 21, 2012.

The Color Run was a blast.  It was so much fun I’d love to do it again someday, hopefully with one of my grandchildren.  Oh heck, I’d like the whole family to come along!  And all of my friends!  If you ever get the opportunity to participate in one, do it.  Don’t think twice about it.  Just do it.  You don’t have to be a runner.  Many of the people participating were not running at all.  Some were walking.  A few were skipping or dancing occasionally (especially at or near the finish line).  More than a few were rolling on the ground, but that was just at the color stations.  I’m pretty sure they didn’t roll the entire 5k.

The title for today’s post might lead to some disappointment if you’re here about things of a specific political nature.  I have one brief, general thing to say about politics and then I’m moving on.

Guess who’s back?

Early morning sunlight on snow.

Old Man Winter has returned.  He won’t be staying long.  The next warm-up starts tomorrow.  But he’s had quite a run this weekend.

Distorted

In a person who is open to experience each stimulus is freely relayed through the nervous system, without being distorted by any process of defensiveness.

The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Distorted.  The photo above was taken on our way to Reeds Gap State Park.  I used Photoshop to add some distortion.
