Since I'm in need of a calming influence at the moment, here's a long exposure shot from my June California coast workshop. Repositioning a few different times, I identified my preferred anchor at the bottom and then composed to capture a tiny little bird on the rocks to the left complemented by the sun rising to the right.
In 2018, I vowed to start my days earlier to increase productivity. I now energize with 6am workouts three days a week. And, one day a week, I hit the grocery store after and then grab my favorite Cobb salad for breakfast + homemade chai. For anyone who lives in San Francisco or will be visiting, I highly recommend you check out Jane on Fillmore Street.
Sadly, despite starting with that wonderful ritual and being really relaxed and productive, I had a bit of a wrench thrown into it a short while ago when I got a text that my credit card number was compromised yet again! I try to avoid using credit cards at gas stations due to the prevalence of skimming devices, but I made an exception a few weeks ago and wonder if that's where my credit card number was stolen.
The timing isn't ideal since I'm heading out to the NY Times Travel Show next week. The good news is they are overnighting a new one to me. What's shocking is that they don't require a signature to deliver the card! Fraud was perpetrated and now the delivery service might leave a new credit card on my doorstep that might be stolen?! After expressing that this makes zero sense, I asked if they can require a signature as delivery drivers continue to leave items regardless of how many times I ask them not to. Nope, they can't do that. So when I *hopefully* receive it tomorrow, I have to spend time moving all my automatic payments over.
Have you had your credit card number stolen?
