Transition Days

Leave a comment

As the weather transitions from one season to the next, rather abruptly I might add, a number of transitions are always happening. The people in and out of your life. The work week ending or starting. Mornings to evenings. Watching my career ramp down while watching my children grow in theirs.

Watching my neighborhood change and the surrounding areas of civilization grow around us. The transition of having to watch what I eat instead of eating anything I wanted. The body’s change of less physical strength and stamina. The change of how we grow or regress as a society or individual.

Kayak and Canoe’s. Becoming my future choice of transportation.

The change from a motorcycle speed and corners to maybe a kayak or canoe on a lake. The transition from self-doubt to confidence. The change from balls to the wall to enjoying the ride.

The change of spirit and mindset I’ve had. (wish I had done it earlier in life). The transitions of what is important and what isn’t anymore. Or the ability to recognize what always was, and wasn’t.

I feel like I’m at this great time in my life but that I know in my heart I’ve wasted a lot of good time also. But as long as there is this day and a next day to try to make up for it then life is great.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Eggs on a Sunday morning is a great start. When they are made for you, it’s a blessing.

I really enjoyed Paul Simon’s performance on SNL last night.

I’m going to fire up the grill today and do some sausages as a protest about the cool temps here in Maryland.

I’m going into this work week in better spirits than I have in the last several. Might as well enjoy it. Hell week (elections) are coming soon.

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.
