I’ve got nothing-but I will try anyway

Leave a comment

I tried to start a post earlier today but had to run to a doctor’s appointment. And now work is in the way. Tomorrow it will be something else but the need to power through is with me now. The desire to just keep plugging away each day regardless of circumstances. The hope of putting something together each day that spurs some interest.

But I get uncomfortable when I force myself to be creative. My open mind closes in. My ideas seem to dry up, my drive seems to be affected. So the key is to just keep going. Don’t let lack of confidence deter my drive to produce. Yeah this isn’t going to be one of my best post. But what ones really are.

I think I’ll try to get to the fair on Friday. Good chance to practice my people shooting skills. Kids are great to photograph and I guess I should start to get some practice in case I’m blessed with grandchildren someday.

Today I looked at an old camera I’m still using and had the thought it might be time to start thinking about a replacement. It is at least 10 years old and starting to show signs of real wear. But it’s still a quick and handy tool that is good when the weather is iffy or that I don’t have to fret over taking to the beach if I desire.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Going it alone requires a lot of self-confidence.

If I can convince more people to vote in the next election I will feel a sense of accomplishment.

It used to be that stepping on the scale (weight) at the doctor’s office was at least one good piece of news. Till today. I’ve got to limit my sodas.

But on the other hand my blood pressure is very cool. And any day you can walk out of a doctor’s office is a great one.

I’m thankful today for the love of my family and friends. Something I sometimes forget to remind myself of.

Well enough rambling on. There is real work to be done and I had better get too it if I want to post tomorrow.

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.
