Was a good day to cast a shadow again

Yeah, what a day. Worked way to hard, body is complaining but I’m not going to, because I was catching some rays while playing yard man. Just like this flower was in the late afternoon sun sitting our living room table. I’m feeling about as bright as these flowers are in spirits. Even though I didn’t have time to shoot much, I’m going to try some studio work tonight. More of a training session for myself to get to know the camera better than anything else.

Plus its now raining outside and getting chilly. Sounds like a good sleeping night to prepare for the work week ahead. So the dilemma is do I stay up half the night working on refining my craft or get some much-needed rest. Maybe a little of both.

So as another day draws down, I find myself reflective on the fall season quickly passing us by. For as I was putting away some patio furniture in the shed today, I found myself walking out of the shed and inside the house with the snow shovels in hand. Now that is a nasty thought. I might have to go see how much a snow-blower is after never having one. And I’m sure the doctor who will look at my left shoulder on Tuesday will be ruling out shoveling this winter.

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.
