Feeling it

1 Comment

I took this shot yesterday in the middle of the rain storm where the sun was out here at the same time. It kind of symbolizes how I feel today. I’m up and blooming but my body is raining on the parade. I’m trying to keep a sunny outlook but as the work week looms and pressures again mount I’m not starting out the way I would hope to get out of the gate with.

Such is life. Battle through. Focus on the positive possibilities. Like today’s post. I came with nothing to the keyboard, realized I hadn’t downloaded a few shots from yesterday. This one just summed up how I feel. The mind is positive, but the body is sick. It’s possible I picked up a sinus infection and the body aches from a few days of yard work.

Regardless I’m on a roll this month and haven’t missed a day of posting and I’m trying to pick up the camera more. So I’m not going to let this stop me at all. Maybe slow me down yes. Maybe make it a bit more difficult, certainly while also trying to work the job that pays the bills. But it does help make me feel better.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I’m of the belief that the media made more of this march in DC today for Unite the Right than was needed. I mean how few of the kkk even showed. Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t it end even before it was scheduled to start?

My body just made me promise to get the proper rest needed tomorrow.

I can’t wait to see my children again.

Even though some people won’t do what they need to do to help themselves, its hard not to feel for them if they are close.

I’m really pulling for Shaquem Griffin (one-handed NFL player) to make the Seahawks. He might just end up being a star with that motor he has. That would be a great inspiration for so many people.

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.
