Course adjustment

Haven’t had one of these days in a while. Just woke in a bad mood. TV disgusted me. Work is irritating me. I’m behind on my chores and that has me stressed. Its dark out and cold, an a winter mess in the forecast. Wasted an hour or two stewing like this. And was having thoughts that this might continue through the day. I think the thing that set it off was getting my referral for blood work in email.

I don’t see any power steering here.

And then I spoke to my better half. And life turned. She always gets me back on course. Sometimes it’s just hearing her voice, sometimes the advice or words of encouragement. And then I decided to listen to some tunes and the first one that came on was Wond’ring Aloud from an old favorite band of mine. And I thought of how she has given me so much in life.

I had to go look up the lyrics and saw beauty. The last lines of “And it’s only the giving, That makes you what you are” is so true.

“Wond’ring Aloud”

Wond’ring aloud
How we feel today
Last night sipped the sunset
My hand in her hair
We are our own saviours
As we start both our hearts beating life
Into each other Wond’ring aloud
Will the years treat us well?
As she floats in the kitchen
I’m tasting the smell
Of toast as the butter runs
Then she comes, spilling crumbs on the bed
And I shake my head
And it’s only the giving
That makes you what you are

Random Thoughts of the Day

Do I want to go out in the cold and wet for the first snow pictures of the season tomorrow morning?

You know when I think of the word retirement. I think about becoming so busy with stuff I want to do all day instead of someone else’s stuff.

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.
