My therapist told me a story today. She has a bonsai tree in her office and it's very important to her. One day she walked in and saw that it was just a trunk with brown branches, the leaves were wilted because she'd overwatered it. She was so upset. She trimmed the dead leaves, but couldn't bear to throw it away because she loved it so much.
So she kept taking care of it. It was lifeless for weeks, but she persisted.
This week, little green buds blossomed into leaves.
Even though all hope seemed lost, that little tree blossomed in the toughest of conditions.
Even when all hope seems lost, you can blossom like that tough little bonsai tree. 🌿
How do we replace Flickr?
Flickr, like all successful social software, is different things to different people. When something is done well, we internalize the communities that we interact with on it as part of the character of the place.
At small full and self serve laundromat: “Earliest we can have it ready is 5.” “I need it earlier, can I pay for a rush job?” “No sir. Saturday is our busiest day.”
There are literally no loads of unwashed laundry. All the machines empty.
She’s the same one who said you can’t pay when you pick up, new policy. Then the next time, the guy working said “No problem- just pay when you pick up.”
