Tour de Fat

Michelle challenges us to find a little irreverence in our world within the theme of cheeky.  I must admit it is a bit difficult to silence anxiety–as  fires rage in southern California, the number of employed homeless increases, the possible financial impact due to an inequality of federal tax burdens, children in Yemen starving, and the list goes on and on and on–long enough to shift my focus towards something “impudent or irreverent, typically in an endearing or amusing way.”    Tour de Fat…a day filled with bikes, costumes, music, friends, and family.

LDG Luciledegoday has sent out a request to help her find Badfish, her blogger friend who runs the Badfish & Chips Cafe.  The last time he posted a blog was in April and she “dearly” misses his enticing and inspiring writings

In response to WordPress’s photo challenge, pedestrians, she has officially launched a Badfish search mission: “Where is Badfish?”   So if you are out and about in search of a super image to post in response to WordPress’ challenge, will you look around and try to find Badfish, wherever you are, because he loves traveling all over the world.

I’m thinking that Badfish (left hand corner) was spotted last month at the Tour de Fat celebration in Colorado, USA.

“… the present situation [is] the fruition of former choices…engage it as the arena for what is to come. …embrace the ambiguity of a present that is simultaneously tied to an irrevocable past and free for an undetermined future.*
