U Is For Up

I have one of those pop-up umbrellas. You know the ones the the handle extends and then they POP open.
I hate it.
A light breeze blows it inside out.
Good thing I don't mind getting wet, and good thing my post isn't about umbrellas.
I've decided there are 3 types of people in the world.
The one who look down when they walk. The ones who look straight ahead when they walk, and the ones who have a tendency to look up and around when walking.
I took this with my Samsung phone at Noon est today.
My photo tells you #1, which person I am, and #2 It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
I am definitely the dreamer. The one with her head in the clouds. I spend enough time looking up that I've developed Olyve Oyl syndrome and don't look very stable on my own two feet sometimes. I hear a plane, and actually have to hold hubby's arm while walking so I don't make it into traffic.
I just can't help myself.
I'm enamored by the great beyond and all the possibilities it holds.

So tell me, which of the 3 types are you?

  1. I'm prone to all 3 types of walking, depending on my mood, the time of day, the reason for the walk etc.
    Walking to and from work I tend to look straight ahead - focussing on the things I have to get done.
    If I'm walking with my phone/camera looking for Instagram inspiration I tend look down for interesting details or up for panoramic vistas!
    If I'm in a bad mood. I tend to watch my feet. But I also watch my feet on rainy days :-)

  5. I must be the kind who looks all around. It gets me in trouble many a time, tripping and falling. But who wants to look at the ground all the time! {:-D

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
