Going to get a jump

That’s right. I’m thinking about starting my weekend early. Yep, going to start shooting on Wednesday instead of Thursday this week. Got a lot of errands so I’ll be out and about. Of course that means I’ll be cutting sleep short again. Something I’d like to avoid but little options if I want to get some work done. And now that I’m on a streak of posting daily I’m hoping to improve the content. I’m finding that planing and advance work helps this along. Not two of my strengths but I’ve always adapted to what is needed.

It’s also time to get going on some sculpture ideas I’ve had for a while. And I got some video ideas also to follow-up on. So I’m very much looking forward to this weekend. I find I’m writing more and loving this process all the time. I think I’ll end the weekend with a trip to visit my parents at Arlington on Sunday. Mom would have been 93 in a couple of weeks so its time to take her some flowers.

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.
