Did something

Leave a comment

Did something today. That is the key. Doing something, anything, share some company, take a drive, go for lunch, take a walk, work out. Anything that helps you LIVE. Yeah once in a while living can be sitting on the couch with your favorite person and watching movies while snacking and listening to the rain. But on a day like today, you have to get out and about and LIVE.

The sun helped me also work on my coloring today.

Letting that sun hit your skin between the high clouds going by providing the occasional shade. Walking a bit to get the circulation going. Sharing some husband/wife thoughts and observations, a seafood lunch and the top down to and from our destination and back. I’m so thankful to have such a wonderful day.

This summer I let too many nice days slip by and didn’t do anything. Such a waste but I can only look forward and change. That was one of my hopes to get more productive with my arts. The more I’m out and about the more creative I feel and provided with new opportunities to shoot while enjoying great company and destinations.


Humans used to be a lot more fun before smart phones. Now they are always looking into those small screens instead of watching me and making eye contact and showing some affection. Said one dog to me as I passed by today.

Look away from the phone and love your pet or each other.

Before and after. Sometimes life moves very fast. So Live it each day and moment please.

Before and after.

Random Thoughts

Baseball season needs to end earlier.

I can’t wait for Maryland basketball season.

My friend is thinking about closing his pool early with these cold temps. This has been a short season.

Someone just called me to come get some pizza so this post is over.

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.
