$Cha Ching$!

Today I earned my first dollar writing.  Seven hundred fifty words and one photo.  An amount that just about pays for a week at the Marina.  I’m off on a roll.  I have 1000s of ideas of things to write about.  I have an encouraging editor and Peter says, “I want you to do whatever makes you happy.”

Shrimp Meditation

My morning meditation revolved around several dozen shrimp.  Shelling shrimp is a chore.

I decided to make it a meditation.  As I shelled each shrimp, I counted to myself.  One one thousand, two one thousand, three one thousand.  Did you know it takes between three and eight seconds to shell a shrimp?  The really pesky ones can take up to ten seconds.

I had a number of really good ideas while my brain was relaxed enough to let in good ideas.  Ideas I shared with Peter and began to implement soon after breakfast.

Plus we had an amazing shrimp, scrambled eggs and grated cheese breakfast.
