Friday Feelings in Orange and Yellow

Leave a comment

You know what a good day is? When going through it you feel like the most fortunate person in the world. I’ve learned to have better days by thinking and looking for the things that make me feel like that. And I’m glad most of those things aren’t material in nature. Or if they are they might be of little value to others but special to me in some way.

Orange and Yellow, too bad the guy entering the picture with his face buried in the smart phone won’t see it.

Let simple things make you feel better. Taking a pain-free day for granted is something I used to do without a thought. Now its the exception so its special. Find those things that make you feel great. Sometimes I get pissed at myself if I miss the opportunity to think about how fortunate just waking up each day is.


Random Thoughts of the Day

Another power outage today. I wonder if were on the same grid with Venezuelan people. No, I shouldn’t complain. Its only the third one of the year. And thankfully they have only been short ones 15-30 minutes to a few hours.

Time to make some progress. Well for a few more hours at least.

Remember when we used to complain about the news being boring and the same old dull stuff?

I’m glad I grew up in the era I did, in the place I did.

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.
