I didn’t accomplish squat today. And it was fun. Had lunch with an old friend and tinkered around the house. Now I find myself up late at the keyboard having a go at coming up with a topic to pursue. Pursuing my interest of mixing words and images. Throwing stuff against the wall and seeing what sticks. Well, not throwing today because I’m kind of relaxed.

Relaxed enough to give my concerns about the direction of things a short reprieve. Again its good to have balance. For without it you might just run out of energy and give up the effort. Anyway it will run its course and hopefully we will see our country come out stronger. If we get back to working together we can stay a strong tree instead of laying in pieces.

Random Thoughts of the Day

When you give a gift, that becomes a tradition that is loved, its gives a pride and satisfaction that comes from thought and effort.

Your only in trouble when the wheels come off.

It feels good to complete this goal each day. I’m looking at it a bit differently now which is making it easier to accomplish.

Do you know where your next meal is coming from? Be thankful.

One of these days I’m going to review all this old work and be proud of the start I had.

The more good blogs I find the more I realize I have a lot more work to do. But that is a great thing. All my life I’ve known and run across many wonderfully talented and brilliant people. And while I’ve used it to inspire and work to make me better professionally, with the exception of my creative work that I’m now trying. I used to let that intimidate me or keep me from trying or experimenting in this area. But no more. After many years of work I hope to be an inspiration for my own children to do something like this or another challenge they would enjoy.

I guess I should revise the name of my “To Shoot List” to something less threatening like “photograph this”.

I guess I should get some rest, word is the sun is coming out again this weekend.

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.
