Just Because

Relax, or don’t relax today, it’s up to you. Today’s commemoration is “National Just Because Day”. I like this special day because I can do something on a whim. Maybe it’s something I’ve been wanting to do but have put it off. Perhaps I’ll just do the first thing that comes to mind. This is the day that doesn’t necessarily have to conform to rhyme or reason, unless you want it to. {Disclaimer: this whimsy does not apply to work or family obligations.}

To commemorate “Just Because Day” on this blog, I want to share some pictures from my “temporary working files”. There is no particular importance, ranking, artistic merit, nor special reasons to place them on this page today. The pictures just strike some personally pleasant¬†chords.

I hope you enjoy a happy “National Just Because Day”

The Blue Jay of Happiness also shares a random quote. “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. it is simply too painful to acknowledge — even to ourselves–that we’ve been so credulous. (So the old bamboozles tend to persist as the new bamboozles rise.)–Carl Sagan, from “The Fine Art of Baloney Detection,” Parade, February 1, 1987
