Taxing

Leave a comment

Haven’t run into a day where I have felt taxed in a while. But today was that day. I think the lack of sleep and things on my mind caught up with me. Also some conversations with two friends who retired in the last couple weeks.

All the things they were saying to me about how they felt the last few years of work rings so true to how I feel now. I have no idea how I’m going to power through the next several years but I will because I always have and there isn’t an alternative at present. Yes, I’m a little younger than the two people I mentioned but not that much.

Its good to have someone to look at a sunrise with.

It also got me thinking about what I would like to do in retirement again. I have no concrete plans but I have a list a mile long of things I’d like to do. Some of which I’m getting an early start on.

So off I go tonight to take some night shots and contemplate not having to get up to the weekly grind someday.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Five Guys makes a good burger.
  • OK, tonight is the NBA Draft. Which leaves me wondering what I’ll watch between now and the start of College basketball?
  • Every Friday is a Good Friday.
  • It’s sad to think any of the 9/11 responders wouldn’t get the care or help they need from the government.

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.
