It didn't work,” said the King. “The cloak of invisibility didn't work.”
“Yes, it did,” said the Royal Wizard.
“No, it didn't,” said the King. “I kept bumping into things, the same as ever.”
“The cloak is supposed to make you invisible,” said the Royal Wizard. “It is not supposed to keep you from bumping into things.”
“All I know is, I kept bumping into things,” said the King.”

This week's episode is about a random lesson of invisibility I bumped into, literally and figuratively. In addition, plenty of befuddlement– some of which I created and understand, but the rest I don't– but still have to figure out. The ultimate task of anyone managing a weight loss.
And, my plan for the week. Not a fantasy plan, but hopefully a bit of Thurber whimsy and creativity will accompany the days ahead. My friend, David, just gave me a bunch of David Austin roses and peonies from his garden and they have sparked my creative muse for the coming week as well!
I created the podcast in the early morning while walking an empty parking lot with weeds growing up between the cracks in the macadam.
