Some days, all I need is something whimsical and colourful to soothe my sore, dry eyes pulling me away from the computer screen.
This little plastic fella was a gift from a family member the fall of 2011. He / it provides a pleasant distraction and initiates conversation from passers-by. Sometimes though, the exuberant clunk, clunk noise affects my concentration, and he is soon exiled to a dark corner.
Just think what we could accomplish with renewable energy projects if we put our grey matter to work on a larger scale. The only thing I can harness from this small distraction is a few moments of joy. That can be a good thing during a long, challenging day.
