We all relax a little with age & stop perceiving danger where there is probably none

Until now, my pet never let me capture him on camera while he played upside down on his back. You’d think, after 24 years, I would have given up trying, but I am persistent – and was quite surprised that he didn’t instantly right himself when I approached with a potentially life-threatening device while he laid vulnerable.
When we’ve seen the same old thing enough times, we may quit being hyper alert and just relax and watch. We’ve also learned, Why Not Try the Same Thing Over Again because we’ve seen, esp when working with computers, that sometimes the results are different (contrary to the popular “definition” of insanity: trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results). Or maybe being insane has some cool rewards (in this case having a photo) with little effort even at doing something we’ve failed at before.
Maybe this is a quality writers have to have. And after 30-some years, submitting a novel for publication worked too. (Pool Party)
