Yeah, I almost made some good progress today. Yeah it was almost a sunny day. Yeah the temp almost got to a normal level. It was almost a lot of things. But like any day it was good to be alive. Good to try to find opportunities. Good to have a few minutes to create. Good to have time to email a sick friend.

There are a lot of almost in every day. When I first thought of “almost” I had this negative connotation to it. But almost means you were trying. Nobody reaches the pinnacle every day. No baseball player goes 4 for 4 every day. Tomorrow I will try harder and maybe turn a few almost, into something complete.

Almost a sunny day.

We got our A/C serviced today and we are ready for the man above. Go ahead and crank it up. The house will be a refuge for my better half while I’ll be outside in the hammock. That reminds me, I have to set that up on Friday because I wouldn’t mind taking my first nap of the season in it this weekend.

Everyone should own a hammock. Looking at the leaves on the tree blow in the wind. The clouds in the sky forming different shapes and moving a different speeds. The feeling that you are floating. The gentle swinging motion. The occasional bee buzzing overhead. And as I mentioned its a good nap machine.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I’m struggling over a letter to a friend who is under the weather.

I wished I could have joined my friends who were gathering for a beer after work today.

I couldn’t get my mind off my Daughter today. I’m trying to funnel strength to her.

Another anniversary this coming week. A tough one that breaks my heart.

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.
