A hearty good morning

1 Comment

Sorry for the absence, life away from the computer took priority for a few days. Had to get some face time with my children and friends. And it was a crazy but satisfying week at the job that pays the bills for a change of pace. Haven’t had one of those for a while in some regards. I’m always proud of the effort and work I do but it’s seldom seen or appreciated so when it is, its kind of refreshing.

Today I’m charged up and full of inspiration. The batteries are charged in me and in the cameras, so out and about I go. And a beautiful day we have for it. I think I’ll stick to the home county. Haven’t done any shooting around here in a bit. Also looking forward to doing some writing and maybe even some etchings.

Life is great when you have your health as well as those around you. But don’t forget about those who aren’t and lend them all the support and love you can.


Random Thoughts

I was inspired by former President Bush’s speech yesterday. And I told my daughter I’m going to start looking for the positives in life and what can be done for the parts of life that need help and fixing. Too much negativity already and I hope no longer to add to it.

It’s a top down day for those of us with rag tops.

Tell a friend how special they are and that you love them if you’re lucky enough to have such close friends that they are family.

I can’t decide if I should put my hammock back out for a few days or not.

Look to the children for inspiration. For you will find honestly, desire for love and affection, compassion and laughter, a focus on the simple but important things.

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.
