Make each day special

Leave a comment

If your working towards making things happen in a good way your going to be too busy to worry about negatives. You learn they are just detours to your mission of making each day special. That is one of the regrets I have in life. I lived in a negative way for a while. It took the enjoyment out of things I worked hard on professionally. I let it affect my personal life. It affected day-to-day interactions.

Part of the change I made was to look at things from a different perspective. I started that thought process before I got sick, but that just reinforced it and moved it forward a bit faster. I was taking for granted the gift of time. That is no longer the case and now that my health is better I’m loving life in a way I never have before.

Seemed like a good photo for a Friday night.

Time is the most precious gift we have, so it shouldn’t be squandered. Today I made very good use of time and spent the day with my better half for her birthday. The gift of time goes a long way. Of course the right gift and meal help.

Oh, in regards to today’s photo. I was at the mall waiting for my better half and I looked up and saw the word BARS through the railings. And being its Friday Bars may be a very popular option. Or all the people watching politics might be thinking there is another one who might be seeing some bars.

Me, I just looked up and saw the railing and word and turned on the camera.


Random Thoughts of the Day

It’s a good feeling when you can make someone else happy. Going to try to repeat it tomorrow.

If I don’t get a hundred fresh frames tomorrow I’m going to kick my ass.

Hopefully some really good people on both sides of government can get together and work out a really good solution to immigration and security and the best way to spend the money, excuse me, our money. Something a majority of the country could get behind. Something that so many people on both sides of the aisle said to hell with the extreme ends and here is a good solution that is going through regardless. Well I can dream, can’t I?

I have some desk drawers that could use some cleaning out.

You ever look at a picture of yourself from 40 years ago and say, hey that was yesterday wasn’t it?

Another day, another arrest.

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.
