When you found yourself not knowing what everyone else in the group seemed to know, you might say the above or I didn’t get the memo. In the connected world of today do managers even bother to issue memos? Maybe they put all their employees on twitter.
Now that I’ve manage to get off-track on a tangent lets get back to what inspired this post. (another minor thought flare-up; reading an inspired post does not necessarily result in writing an inspirational post)
I was browsing around a few of favorite blogs. “Working the reader list”, if you like. I noticed a theme coming together on a few of the posts. Now this was not an organized meme thing. Sort-of a “smell-the-roses” or “carpe diem” type of theme appeared for no particular reason.
Now anytime I get a chance to throw around the few Latin words I know. Well, alleluia.
It started over at Mrs. 4444’s blog with her post, Gratitude Touchpoint.
Then I scrolled through, Tami’s Time Flies post.
You know that feeling when things seem to be coming together and making some strange sense of purpose? No? Yeah it doesn’t happen much with me either.
CiCi posted a similar message too.

At this point the line from Taxi Driver is circulating in my brain:
You talkin’ to me?youtube link for those that don’t remember Taxi Driver - oh strong language included)
Was blogland talkin’ to me? I like to remind other people to lighten-up but I often forget to “walk the talk”. Maybe I just didn't get the memo tweet. I'm not on twitter.
If you would like a bit of carpe diem reflection then browse over to those posts linked above and tell them I sent you.
