Tuesday’s gone

Actually I feel every day is gone well before its time. The time to hold your significant others hand or embrace. The time to call a friend back. The time to stop and grab a few frames between appointments. The time to write or call or visit your children. The time to do a post or work on my book. The time to take an enjoyable drive.

These days fly by as if they were minutes. Working on making each day more special therefore is the key. I’m trying to make each personal interaction important. Walking by strangers with a smile or hello or have a nice day. Pleasant conversation with coworkers and emails to those I can’t reach.

All I know is that the older I get the faster time moves so in balance I have to make each minute count and be special. So to do that I’m trying to adjust some things that allow for more time in personal interaction or creating. Two things I get great enjoyment from. I’m looking at some time changes. We had some pay channels a while back. I was thinking about keeping them but then I said I’m watching too much TV anyway so no to that. Also just trying to reduce sitting in front of that box more overall.

Next is I’m going back to using my phone as a phone. I’m tired of trying to look at things in such a small screen anyway.

Random Thoughts for Tuesday May 10th 2016

  • I still feel like I’m on a roll here despite feeling like hell today.
  • I don’t know which I enjoy more? Being the trainer or the trainee. I end up learning either way.
  • I see that guy who spent all that time in the space station got taller. Maybe we should start sending all the old people up there to cure their shrinkage problem.
  • If I weren’t so forgetful it would bother me that I’m so forgetful.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
