February and Friday, what could be finer?

Welcome to February all. January flew by even though it’s a longer month. But I consider that the hump month of winter. Yeah February can be cold and with snow. And your never out of the woods in March but that is the home stretch to my prime time of year (April-October). So here is to a quick February and onto some comfortable weather.

Read a post titled “Shoot one photo a day” which I try to do but rarely pull off. He made a really good point that there isn’t an excuse not to do some “on the fly” photography each day. Hell, that is about the only photography I get to pull off. At the end he had a phrase I loved in regards to taking an image a day. “My visual push up of the day.” What a great line.


I had to work 2 of the 2 holidays this past month. Working holidays SUCKS. Luckily there is only one this month to work through. I’m more through with the commute each day I drive it. It’s also performance review time. And of course there are a thousand and one initiatives going on to stress everyone out. Good thing I have control and can limit the drama.

I still get a charge out of the work but it nothing like it used to be to me. And that is OK. In some ways I’m kind of glad it changed a bit. Putting in those long hours and on-call work was getting very old.


Random Thoughts of the Day

Worry is an interesting practice.

The best way to honor people is to always remember them.

Tomorrow is about making people happy.

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.
