Sidelined till the sun returns


Had a lot on my mind today. Felt like I was sidelined with my writing today. Couldn’t get the positive vibes going till I got home this evening. Had a wonderful dinner with another couple of very good friends. That set a better tone to the evening. Going to try to turn this wet and grey weather on its ear and hope for a better Saturday but that looks foggy and cloudy according to the forecast.

So I’ll leave with hope for tomorrow, it both the forecast for the weather and our country. I had a lively discussion on politics tonight and I think its healthy to debate issues. I wish we could talk about this in a civilized manner but it is far to difficult for some to tackle now. But I’ll give it my best to talk and see where we can find common ground. Because to stop listening to each other is a big mistake in my mind.

Speaking of tomorrow, its time for me to get back outside and take some new pictures. Not sure I can handle the heavy Nikon yet but maybe I’ll just keep it on the tripod and venture out with it like that.

Well, time for some pain relief and a good nights sleep. May you all have a wonderful rest of the evening. Yeah, some of us stay up all night at times.

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.

  1. Good luck with the new Nikon and getting your pain under control! I know only too well what that is like. As for politics I’m not going there right now. <3
