Six thousand images in 14 days

That's more pictures than I've taken in a lifetime and it's taxing my ability to keep up with the tossing and sorting and cataloging. I'm having trouble getting out of the tourist mode of snapping everything that moves. With the rapid fire this new camera is capable of (a wonderful feature in its place) I can easily end up with 10 or 20 copies of an image I won't end up keeping. Like number 6,000 above - a poor image in a sequence of poor images. The Cranes flew and I got 'em by gorry! Phew...

Fit In Better

We Americans hail from families of immigrants newly arrived, seeking approval from better-established immigrants deposited by the previous boat. Even the best adjusted of us have inherited a message of social inferiority from generations of moms telling generations of kids to fit in better, speak English better, display better manners, etc. I suggest that this heritage weighs on us more than we want to acknowledge at levels we don't want to address.
