The Ready Position

This cat is ready, has decided to sit and wait for lunch to fly right to him.

I found this cute picture on All Creatures Great And Small blog.

I sometimes feel like I am in the ready position. Not just when we are standing at the barbecue waiting for the chicken or veggies to cook. I deliberately open my mind to what is in store for me to hear and/or see. I am anticipating learning something good for me. Even if it is not about me, it can be good for me.

So many times I move from blog to blog, reading entire posts, and carrying bits of information to the next blogs; hence, my internal vision expands, my vocabulary increases, my life is more interesting. And I don't leave home for all this growth.
TechnoBabe's Adventures indeed.

I'm not sure I ever feel like I'm in the ready position, or even what to be ready for.

I love reading blogs and gaining a little more insight into how others see the world - especially those like you who really open their hearts to the world.

Ms.A, it must not be something you need in your life as it is in mine. In order for me to be healthy, I am working on my stuff constantly.

Rock Chef, that is a very sweet thing to say. Thank you.

I love how you soak up everything in life. I heart you so much!!!!

DJan said...

Me too! You are such fun to be around, and you infect everybody you touch with your fun-loving soul! Infections can be positive, too! :-)

Brian Miller said...

true that...i think blogging has def opened up the world to me and it lets you know too that you are not alone in what you are going through....

Pearl said...

That cat looks eerily like Liza Bean Bitey (of the Minneapolis Biteys).

And being ready? I just hope for getting ready to be ready...

Kulio said...

Oh, cool :-) I will try to be in the ready position today. What awaits?

TechnoBabe said...

Gary, I didn't actually realize that.

blueviolet, back atcha.

DJan, good infections like good vibrations. You are like that too.

Brian, cool that you know blogging has opened up the world to you too.

Pearl, getting ready to get ready is still way better than not ready to get ready.

Kulio, get ready! I hope you have many blessings today.

What a great way to sum up blogging. I love it! And I adore that kitty. Sweet as can be!

I have learn things from blogs. But the odd fact or interesting place doesn't even compare to the feeling of shared experiences and emotions.

That naughty cat needs shooting!
It is amazing what can be learnt from blogging and I feel we are all on similar routes using our experiences that we pick up on the way.

That cat is well-camouflaged - he may be successful.

I often feel in that ready position to - just waiting fro what life throws at me.

Isn't our blogosphere a wonderful place? It's certainly enriched my life considerablly since I first teetered in here some years ago - and I am so thankful for the dear fellow bloggers, friends such as you, who help to make this little community such a fun place to be!

Mama Zen said...

I do the same thing, Techno! You never know what out there for you.

Big Dave T said...

I used to browse the blogosphere more than I do now. Now I'm more like one of those cats who just curls up and sleeps.

Opaque said...

That is one thing I miss about not blogging so often as earlier...

Joanna Jenkins said...

This post makes a lot of sense to me Techno-- I try to be ready by being present/in the moment as much as I can. It's not always easy but I try.

I caught up on your posts and got a great big smile on my face when I saw the cookies James baked in the shape of a heart. What a sweetie :-)

I get so much out of reading blogs. It broadens insight into my own life.
