Lumosity, the gateway drug

After a hard day making the world a greener place, it's good to come home, plop down in front of the computer and zone out on some major Lumosity. Bring on "Splitting Seeds", a short test of eye-squint estimating with chirpy birds, a revolving stick, and sunflower seeds. Try a few rounds of "Trouble Brewing" as a drive-thru barista to reassess your competence and career importance. Then on to where Guy Noir, pet poop in plastic bags, and Car Talk converge! Yes, multiple rounds of "Pet Detective" until geezer bedtime about eight.


Om. I am not younger.
Om. I am not smarter.
Om. I am home. Om.
Om. I am humbled and can not sneer at people who invite me to play silly games on Facebook.
Om. I hope I'm not ready for The Home.

I don't play Lumosity, though both my sisters do. But I don't need it to humble me, as I pursue enough time wasting activities to keep me from judging anyone else's pursuits. And maybe it's brainsaving claims are even true.

Om shanti shanti shanti, as my online yoga teacher says. I think he translates it as Peace to all beings. Maybe even chirpy virtual birds.

Om. Peace even to online chirping birds. Sounds like a virtual mindfulness mantra, Seana, and there will be pet detective on the labyrinth.
