New energy

Leave a comment

New energy. Don’t know where it came from. Don’t care where it came from. I just hope to make use of it today. Actually I do know where it came from and I do care, but I don’t often express this. This weekend I had thoughts of being old and time getting short. I don’t like to think that way but if it spurs more action, so be it.

I managed to get a good nights rest and squeeze off a few frames to start the day. Observed this guy hunting in my back yard today. So I stepped outside in my socks into some not yet melted snow and froze for a minute or two.

So a fairly boring Super Bowl I hear. And that few minutes I heard of the halftime show was worthless. Did go back and check out the commercials but they were even a bit disappointing. I really did like the NFL commercial though. I see the company I work for ran a commercial also. It was well done and I liked it. I’ll reserve how I feel about spending millions of dollars on it till I no longer work here.

I’m feeling good about starting the week off in a spirited way. Looking forward to getting a few more minutes to shoot on Tuesday. I don’t have to make the long commute to DC so that should give me an extra few hours to appreciate life. I’m getting so burned out on the ride. I’m so tired of all the near misses.

And I’m not in the mood to have another accident like the last one I had coming home from work when a truck hit me at 60 mph from behind while I was stopped in traffic. I rarely take Interstate 95 for that reason anymore. But the other roads aren’t safe either. I’m really disappointed people have become so selfish and emboldened to endanger others lives so.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I’ve been concentrating on myself too much to start the year. Got to get back to helping others first.

Isn’t it amazing what you can do when in good spirits and how nothing gets done when your down?

I keep forgetting music is such an uplifting art till I take the time to listen.

Love is something never to be taken for granted. Do you know how much some would give for it. Take time to share it.

Working nights is a dark experience.

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.
