Took a ride to Brighton Dam today and grabbed a few shots. Had a wonderful lunch at El Azteca in Clarksville and ran some errands. But the best part of the day was spending it with my wife. After a long work week for both of us it was nice to spend a Friday, taking a walk, talking and grabbing a bite to eat. Just like the old days when we had some time to ourselves.
I’m so in love with her. And at almost 35 years together, it just keeps growing. I knew I was in love with her when I met her. She is the best thing in my life and gave me the two best children I could ask for. Again I state for the record I’m a piece of work. One who doesn’t deserve such love and riches. And I thank her for sticking with me despite my many faults.
But each day now I spend in thought about her if I’m not with her. If I am, I spend it looking deeply at her and holding her hand often. Or giving her a kiss or a hug. I’ve always told her I love her. I’ve even had my times where I have shown her my love in some very good ways. I’ve always been a good provider. Well I’ve kept us out of the poor house but were not swimming in wealth. Except in the kind of wealth where I have her and she has me.
So as I head out to see some friends for a quick HH and then back home into my wife’s loving embrace, I think about what a great day its been. How wonderful it is to witness the change of season. How going out yesterday in the upper 70s and warm breeze to the brisk temps of 60 with a cool breeze today is reminding me we are in a state of change. But that is the human condition. Adapting to change.
So out again on Saturday to see if I can catch some more color. For the window for that will quickly close and that nasty winter season will be upon us. Photographically and physically my worst season of the year. I HATE COLD.
Never hurts to slow down when crossing a creek and see what is upstream. When I first snapped this shot below, I didn’t think much of it till I got home and it kind of grew on me.
Just a few shots below with the old camera.
