Trying not to miss an opportunity

Leave a comment

I was up early to see the sun rise as usual. And its a rare occasion if I don’t see it set. Some nights I can track the moon through the sky. I have no idea why I enjoy the sky so much. The joy in both the beginning and end of each day. The stillness that seems to come to both. But then again, things come to life at both sunset and sunrise.

Take me home.

I’m trying to think more positively. I’m trying not to miss opportunities. To both be inspired and work hard and thank others for their inspiration. I want to tell people who I love that I love them many more times. I want to leave something my family and friends can treasure. I want each time we gather to be a great time. I’ve always admired people who can take any random gathering and make it a memory for all there.

Get ready for the home stretch of sun, beach and crabs.

I want to do a lot of things so I better get away from this keyboard and get to them.


Proof the justice system still works. I’m encouraged but not joyous about the point we are at and possibly going.

Wait till Judge Melania gets home. The closest I can think of how that conversation might go is from the movie Blues Brothers – where Jake is trying to explain his way out a jam with his girl.


Random Thoughts of the Day

Some days you just have to speak your mind. Just make sure to engage it beforehand. I should take my own advice.

This coming stretch of weather is what I live for. I will be out before the dawn.

Try watching a comedy clip a day. It will remind you the importance of laughter each day. Its one of the things we sometimes lose from our childhood.

I got to spend a few moments with a very good friend who lives far away. I hope I get that chance again soon in the future.

If you’re going to spend time wondering about things. Wonder about the right ones. Unless you’re in a hammock or on the beach.

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.
