Status quo

Leave a comment

With all the new neighbors in the neighborhood, status quo has been interrupted. Changes are coming fast and furious. From the age to the changing homes and landscape. On neighbor demolished their home to build a new bigger one I’m guessing. I’ve had one next door remodeling now for over 2 years and I don’t believe they have moved in yet permanently.

My status quo of my personal barber was broken because mine retired last month. I was at my dentist today and I can see the writing on the wall that I will need a new one in the coming years. We all age. We all change. We all adapt.

Well some of us better than others at adapting. The older I get the less I feel like adapting. Maybe it’s because I’ve been adapting all my life and I’m tired of it. Maybe I’m getting selfish or lazy or intolerant. I hope those aren’t the reasons.

I know the status quo on traffic has exceeded my tolerance. And the status quo at the job went off the charts with change the last 5-10 years. Maybe its just the volume of changed getting forced down my throat that I struggle with.

I guess I should go think of all the great things that come out of breaking the status quo. And then there are all those new and wonderful things that I’ve incorporated into my new status quo. So I guess the status can be a good or bad quo.

Rock On.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Just hearing a few minutes of the movie Animal House makes me smile and laugh.

I get my car back tomorrow. I’m mobile again. Just in time for some warmer weather.

In looking at young people I see and remember the incredible pressures there are at that stage of life.

I had my worst finish ever this year in terms of my brackets picks for college basketball.

You ever get so tired you feel drunk without having had a thing to drink? I’m going to need some rest on Tuesday.

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.
