  • That minute before falling asleep.
  • That first day of the weekend when you get up and don’t have to rush out the door.
  • That first hot chocolate of the cold winter season.
  • That shower after working outside on a 100 degree day.
  • That first time your new pet curled up on your lap.
  • That moment your children are born healthy.
  • That first time your hair on your neck stood up on end at a concert.
  • That first step on the beach after a long winter season.
  • That first crabcake or dozen steamed crabs.
  • That piano solo by Billy Powell during Free Bird.
  • That hug after I haven’t seen my better half in a while.
  • That time your children open their gifts and you see a smile you were hoping for.
  • That feeling in looking at a picture of a family/friend who has passed and remembering good times and smiling.
  • That uplift you feel after helping someone.
  • That memory of the favorite meal you mother used to make you.
  • That knowledge that you gave your chosen work the best effort.
  • That assurance from your pets of their unconditional love for you.
  • That incredible high from holding your children’s children and making them laugh.
  • That reward you feel that is invisible to others from following your dreams.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I could never work downtown 5 days a week. Thank goodness for work from home days.
  • OK, I got two weeks to make everything happen.
  • I try to envision myself driving to the ocean on a warm summer day this time of year.
  • I can’t help but blacken asphalt when the song Kickstart my Heart comes on.

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.
