Feeling a little overwhelmed today. I’m still trying to find a balance. But forces are pushing hard against me. Sometimes it’s not wise to fight these head on. Go with the flow, swim around or under. Find another path. At least that is how I’m proceeding now. I used to sit down and broad, or fight or give up. Kind of defeated myself at times in life.

About to be overwhelmed.

Guess I wasn’t too mature at times in my life. Hell, not that I am totally now. As you may have heard me say before, my better half says I’m an 18-year-old who refused to grow up. Anyway, work has been tough this week for some reason. And I’m working on getting some minimal rest so that is cutting into chore, play and creative time.

Maybe it was the bad start of having to work another holiday weekend. Maybe its the feeling that what I’m doing professionally isn’t appreciated. Even though I don’t let that affect how I work. I just have to focus on the 12 days of vacation I still have left to take and the joy I get from other things to balance it out.

Random Thoughts of the Day

If I burned my tennis shoes I’d have to walk around barefoot all day.

I’ve noticed a lot of people have trouble saying “Thank you”.

I have a lot to feel good about. I just have to push all that other crap out-of-the-way to get to it.

Yeah, I know, I’ve got to get out and do some fresh shooting. That big DSLR seems heavier each time I pick it up. That’s the way it always is to start and then if I get some good images it feels light as a feather.

Once I get this sleeping thing down, I’m going to work on my eating healthier.

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.
