The eye in the sky

Leave a comment

Welcome to hump day. Broadcasting here from the eye in the sky. Not really, this shot was from our visit to Montreal Canada. One of the few times I’ve been out of my home country. Guess I’m not much of a world traveler. I guess I prefer the local sights and the comfort of my own home too much. Of course, the funds to travel are often put on the back burner to facilitate more important issues in life.

Airports are wondrous places to me where most people look at them as they would a bus stop. Hotels are a special treat, meals out and sights never seen before are of great joy and still new to me each time we go someplace because we go so infrequently.

I really should change that because I know my better half would enjoy more experiences other venues have to offer. I’ll have to see if I can surprise myself and her by turning over a new leaf.

Stress was working at me when I remembered BALANCE today. I was opening the blinds to the slider door and looked outside to the deck and saw the lounge chair. So out I went and got an hour of sun and just shut my eyes and relaxed. It was great, something I don’t often take the time to do at all. Yeah, I’m outside a lot but usually, a mower or trimmer or rake or shovel or hose or leaf blower is in my hands. Today I pointed my open palms skyward from the chair.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I wish I would write more random thoughts down throughout the day instead of trying to remember them at the end of the day.
  • Every once in awhile Mother Nature shows us what power is.
  • I haven’t been this tired since yesterday.

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.
