Me, seven and time

Finding that I can take a photograph of myself drinking a cup of tea in front of the computer by using the computer's web cam I do so. Why not?

A child holds by a string a floating balloon in the shape of the number seven. A troop of children follow. From this I deduce that a birthday party  is about to take place probably at the pizzeria down the road.

Some people I know have no time for time. They take pride in not wearing a watch and in not knowing what time it is. Maybe there is something wrong with me, but I am lost without a watch and plan and mark my actions to a large extent by the time of day. It matters to me that my watch is accurate and keeps that way.

There is a degree of sorrowful uncertainty about your expression - as if, after having posted, you have discovered that your watch isn't telling the right time and that techno-circumstances are preventing you from making a correction to the text.

The picture is very slightly blurred which means I am unable to indulge myself reading the spines of the books behind you. Cruelty of the first order.

Enjoy your cuppa, but of course you have done by now, hopefully. I agree with you, I also feel lost without a timepiece on my wrist. Without a knowledge of the time it is all too easy to become disorganised. Perhaps it is the don't-care-disorganised people who do not like watches. Who knows?

Robbie Surprise really. I clicked the web cam without giving it much thought and this bloke was looking at me out of the screen and wagging his head about like a puppet. Surprise followed by mild shock. Sorry about the focus. It would have been better if the web cam had focused on them.

Tom Somewhere buried deep in my psyche is a feckless Bohemian not giving a damn about time or tide. But recently I have come to realise that he is buried deep if not long defunct.
