Clawing my way

Leave a comment

Scraping together a post today. I’m spent, I’m hurting, I’m in a creative drought the last few hours. The job that pays the bills has been very busy. Lots of personal chores and task. You know, life stuff that has you running so you don’t know what is up. So now as I sit here contemplating putting my head on the desk, I try to find something new to share. And then I remember I forgot to pick up a prescription and put another one in. Well that gives me something to do very early Thursday morning.

Going through past photo folders. Running short on time, I pick an architectural shot. I like architecture. I’m amazed at what engineers and designers create. Buildings are boring to some. Not to me. Then again most things aren’t boring to me. Guess its all how you look at things. I think photography has helped open my eyes over the years.

I know when I have my camera out, my head is on a pivot looking for the next interesting shot or angle. And tomorrow I promise I’ll get out and collect some fresh images. I can’t wait till the roles are reversed at retirement when I can work a part-time gig that pays the bills and full-time on this and photography and arts.

Till then I’ll do my best. And today that doesn’t look like much. But there is tomorrow to hopefully do better.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I’ve switched to the large bag of Smarties candies but they still don’t seem to be helping.

Cherish your parents. Well if they did right by you its automatic.

I wonder if Trump eat Whoppers? He certainly tells some.

Two special birthdays ahead tomorrow. Going to be a lot of singing.

I had a very important typo that I caught before today’s post went out. “Ransom Thoughts of the Day”  Not the kind of attention I’d be looking for with that header.

Another mass shooting today. Boy if I could figure out how to put the Jeanie back in the bottle to cure that problem, I’d be happy man.

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.
