We are going gaga.

David Ogilvy told me to "develop my eccentricities while I'm young. That way, when I get old, people won't think I'm going gaga" yesterday. The problem is that I only develop mine while I am old, now.

I must be gaga right now....

I do not know how old this six-legged little thing is; it sure thinks that it is very much younger than me to develop its eccentricities, and it does these with all its legs.

The more it does, the more it confuses me. It is finally trapped by the so-called eccentricities which grow bigger and bigger. They cut across each others, and cut across my brain wave.

I am an eccentric because of these "eccentricities".

I am gaga, and so the little one is.

What is that long-legged insect? Looks like it was enjoying itself...floating on the water surface.

We spotted several of these water bugs while hiking a couple of days ago. They are amazing and fun to watch. They look to be having a great time.

Old or young its the eccentricities in people that makes life interesting or it will simply be a dull and mundane world...

wenn said...

love the ripples!

betchai said...

i am going gaga too, but at least we get to develop our eccentricities despite we are not that very young anymore :) love your thoughts and pictures always.

Frieda said...

The pictures are beautiful. And I agree with Patali: life would be boring without eccentricities-- they bring the colours and the fun :-)

These are our companions every time we go gold panning. I am always amused by them when they are walking on water. And yes, eccentricities make the person unique.

Ginnymo said...

Life Ramblings said...

Kirigalpoththa said...

Grass said...

The eccentricity of the ripple, of the water bug and of you make all of us, the readers, happy...:D

Mei Teng:
It is for sure enjoying itself for being eccentric and gaga in the early morning.

Cheryl:
Your water bugs must be not eccentric enough to attract your extra attention.They are to normal.

silent moments:
I hate a dull and mundane world, so I must be gaga instead of eccentric nowadays.

wenn:
You must be gaga to love the ripples, or the eccentricities of the water bug.

betchai:
What if everyone of us goes gaga, then eccentricity becomes a norm, and a normal person is labelled as gaga. OMG.

Frieda:
And the eccentricity brings me to the jungle.

ruthi:
I thought eccentricities are your companions every time you go gold panning. lol.

The Retired One:
Morvelous!! To be gaga with me.

Ginnymo:
It is strange, that's why it looks gaga.

Life Ramblings:
The lighting effects came from my camera. Glad to know you like them.

Kirigalpoththa:
You go trying by yourself and tell me your answer later. ok?

Grass:
If these can bring you happiness, then I would rather continue to be gaga. That's what friends are for.

Kilauea Poetry:
You mean, you are as eccentric as monkeys, flies, and bats?

eileeninmd:
I first wrote is as a water spider, but no result after much searching, so I decided not to name it.

Icy BC:
"So we must be growing old."
Hahaha...

Bengbeng:
Would like to hear from you some of the examples. Gaga stuffs...??..!!!

CH said...

I am too "young" to be gaga, but love to be eccentric for most of the time.

That's fun.

I thought this was going to be a post about Lady Gaga - I'm glad it isn't. The six legged creature is much more interesting :D

Ratty said...

I developed my eccentricities when I was young, but people still think I'm crazy. I think it really all of them.

wiseacre said...

You gaga? you won't get an argument from me :)

Harumi said...

Was this lil fella tap-dancing on the water to make that many ripples? =D
