When will fall take flight?

Leave a comment

Thought I’d start with a wish for the colors of fall to take flight. I need something this coming week to give me some fresh inspiration. It’s almost impossible to capture the full beauty of nature even though I see a lot of photographers and artist come very close. Some even create a beauty that is better in some whys when separated from its environment.

Come on fall – FLY.

Actually I’m more at peace this Sunday than I normally am on Sundays. For the trigger of a work week looming, sets of anxiety in me something fierce some days. It’s not that I’m afraid of my work. I’ll do my best and will probably carry the load for the team. I don’t mind those things. I don’t mind that the madness election weeks will bring. I kind of like keeping my head when all about are losing theirs.

It’s just that I realized the priorities in my life are different now and the physical and mental aspects of the work are tougher to deal with than when I was a younger man (before 60’s came). In terms of priorities being with family and friends first and then doing something creative I enjoy. In terms of the physical and mental aspects, its tough doing shift work at an older age. Flipping back and forth from days to nights is tough both on the body and mind.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Finally a weather forecast I can get my mind around. Wish I had it this past weekend, but mother nature does as she pleases. We are just along for the ride.

Now that those big jackpots are gone, I can go back to ignoring those drawings and not wasting a few dollars on them.

My camera batteries are all fully charged. Now I just have to do the same for mine.

When you spend a significant amount of time with your better half and then the work week starts again, it’s a bummer.

Trying to make a good night sleep a habit. Life keeps getting in the way.

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.
