When one is in the throes of A.D.D., one looks at the chaos and it’s a blur, in this case, of brown cardboard. One doesn’t see individual, discrete boxes, one sees box-blob. There is no strategy, no plan… only a vague sense that things are out of place and always will be because nothing, absolutely nothing, can be done with them.

My position on vacuum cleaners is, it’s best to keep them where you can find them easily, and my apartment requires frequent vacuuming …
See that urban snapshot above, using multiple exposures to make it look as if cars are whizzing by and everyone in the city is just busy, busy, busy? Well, I should have been moving like that tonight, because I too had a million tasks to do, but I did some nontasks instead.
Then what does one do? … Well, if one is moi, and A.D.D.-afflicted, one reads good book and forgets about ink cartridges for a while. I got hooked on the Twilight series and fell in love with Edward Cullen, the eternal seventeen-year-old. I bought the first two books in the series via eBaY auction and paid less than $10 each including shipping. I couldn’t wait for shipment of the final two books and bought PDFs instead, also via eBaY.

Please do not think that I am one of those Maxine-looking women, skinny and flabby at the same time, chain-smoking, with her hair in curlers. My hair is way too short for curlers.

Attention-deficit-disordered persons spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to bridge the gap between where they are now and where they want to be. If it’s a one-step process, they do pretty well. If there are unexpected obstacles or corners they can’t see around, they take a nap or read escapist literature.
My eBaY store has been on autopilot for the last few weeks, as I’ve been engaging in more urgent and more profitable endeavors. Even so, I accomplished quite a bit: I sold about $50 worth of stuff without even trying I got suspended for nonpayment of eBaY fees I’m leaning toward specializing in books, once …
Stan Musial, now 88 years old, is one of the greatest baseball players in history, certainly the greatest to have ever played for the St. Louis Cardinals. Willie Mays, 77, who played most of his career with the New York and San Francisco Giants, may be the greatest all-around baseball player of all time.
