Good day all. I feel like this car. All shined up and ready to go, but sitting still. Mostly my own fault. Wasn’t feeling on top of the world earlier today but hope to pull a late gear and accomplish a few things. I was thinking of all the opportunities we are given throughout our life. And then the opportunities we create for ourselves.

How those things vary from time to time throughout life. I see opportunity better now than in my younger days. Then I was looking for opportunities professionally but limiting where and what. Now the opportunities I look for aren’t professional anymore, they are more personal in nature.

There have been a few professional opportunities I’ve passed on throughout the years. Some good choices and maybe some bad ones. But right now I don’t regret any of them.


I have to envision the sunset over the bay today. Having some old photos helps. I wonder if I’ll make it the entire winter season without seeing the beach.

Random Thoughts of the Day

This community gives me faith that we may survive.

I was trying to find something I like about rain. I stopped trying.

You should feel something deeply each day. If you can feel multiple things, you are a living and feeling person.

Sometime the thing you think is rather routine gets recognized and the stuff you feel is special gets passed over.

I’ve set a fine example throughout my life. Not always a good one but a fine example none the less.

I love coming to the end of the day and feeling fulfilled.

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.
