Reflecting on Monday

Leave a comment

What a day, drained is how I feel and its the only the beginning of the week. I’ll need to catch a second wind in a hurry. Keeping myself challenged and doing as much as I can for others and fitting in some me time is a tricky formula. Oh yeah the job and home responsibilities are also fun to balance. But that is just living and living is good. That is the easy part of life.

Getting along is the tough part. And it appears to be getting more difficult for us. Lots of cities have the potential for another Charlottesville. Small towns, big towns. I find myself getting more radical in thought. I heard someone say they fought in WWII and didn’t come home to see a Nazi flag being waved here. That really hit home for me. Many in my family fought in that war. And you know what, I don’t want to see that anymore either.

It’s surprising we didn’t see more carnage. Did you see all the guns at that event. Only a matter of time before that could be the next step.

I wish people would get outraged and appalled each time racist incidents happen. Seems like other incidents including where people get killed or maimed are just so much part of the daily news cycle. Life that visiting student at the University of MD.

I don’t have the answer, just love your fellow-man is all I can add.

There are few things on earth like seeing a child’s face when they catch a home run ball.  Shear joy.

Hostess orange cupcakes are like crack.

I love the look of pine trees. I just hate them on my property.

Looking forward to a wonderful Tuesday.

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.
