: the critical point in a situation, process, or system beyond which a significant and often unstoppable effect or change takes place
Today’s things are all about tipping points.
I have reached the tipping point of my sweater…you know it, that moment when it suddenly looks sweaterish and there is no stopping the outcome: a finished sweater is in sight! Today’s rain will spur along the finish of the front. It feels so good, this downhill portion of the project!
Last year’s garden had the slow crest to a tipping point and, in fact, we did not even realize we were reaching a tipping point until all the beans and a good portion of the peppers were decimated. Slowly, bit by bit, the rabbits diligently worked their way into the garden – hiding their handiwork behind the wall of raspberry canes. However, dear little bunnies, your comeuppance has arrived! Welcome heavy-duty gage wire! Bunnies!! Your day is over! Long live the beans and peppers!!
And, finally, I believe that this week we have reached the tipping point of this train-wreck of a presidency. Thank God.
And there, Gentle Reader, you have my tipping points for this week. Want to see more lists of amazing things? Head on over to Carole’s!
