Overslept is a word that I don’t think ever would apply to me. If average sleep were totaled up and compared to my actual sleep I’d have a well of time so deep to draw from that I couldn’t use it up if I started now till the day I pass. I don’t oversleep for appointments. I don’t oversleep for the job. I don’t oversleep when I can oversleep.

But today I did sleep for about 8 hours today. That felt like a wealth of sleep and rest. I’d been running on empty this week, a few hours each day. But I’m recharged now with that rest and tonight’s solid rest expected I’ll be fired up and ready to go. Put the camera batteries on charge and hope to fire away tomorrow. It feels like a huge amount of time has passed in picking up the cameras. I could have worked on my motion photography because the chance of me holding a camera still while coughing was less than 0% for the last two weeks.

The meds the healing physician prescribed are working on restoring my physical well-being again, I hope. Just in case I’ll take a tripod if I get coughing. Not sure what I’m going to shoot. I think were visiting my in-laws tomorrow, maybe I’ll see if I can get a few good shots of them together. I need to work on my people shooting.

Well, as you can see I’ve scrambled to pull together a few words and a past photo again. As I said I caught up on some rest, did some chores, watched a game with a best friend and I had a few minutes. So I’ve decided to relax my standards a bit. I’ve used large groups of photos in the past and I have some that I liked that I’m recycling for lack of a more honest term. I hope you don’t mind while I recover and get back in the saddle. I’ll have some fresh things to chew on soon. Thank you for the patience.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Before my last bout with illness, I’ve always underestimated the importance of cough drops. No more, they are gold.

If you’re catching up on sleep the amount of random thoughts you have is stunted.

The Terps looked good in that second half tonight.

No time like now for a snack.
